Exhaust gas particulate filter
Concept
The exhaust gas particulate filter collects soot
particles. The soot particles are burned at high
temperatures to clean the exhaust gas particu‐
late filter as necessary.
General information
During several minutes of cleaning the following
may occur:
Temporarily, the engine may run less
smoothly.
A somewhat higher engine speed is neces‐
sary to reach usual performance.
A slight amount of smoke coming from the
exhaust system, even after the engine is
switched off.
Noises, such as those caused by the radiator
fan running, even several minutes after the
engine is switched off.
After-running of the radiator fan for several mi‐
nutes is normal even after short trips.
Mobile communication devices
in the vehicle
WARNING
Vehicle electronics and mobile phones can in‐
fluence one another. There is radiation due to
the transmission operations of mobile phones.
There is a risk of injury or risk of damage to
property. If possible, in the car's interior use
only mobile phones with direct connections to
an exterior antenna in order to exclude mutual
interference and deflect the radiation from the
car's interior.
Hydroplaning
On wet or slushy roads, a wedge of water can
form between the tires and road surface.
This phenomenon is referred to as hydroplaning.
It is characterized by a partial or complete loss of
contact between the tires and the road surface,
ultimately undermining your ability to steer and
brake the vehicle.

ter, water can enter into the engine compart‐
ment, the electrical system or the transmission.
