High loads and external
On long trips with heavy trailer loads, high ex‐
ternal temperatures and low tank content, the
fuel system can overheat, which reduces the
engine performance. There is a risk of damage
to property. Refuel promptly. On long trips with
heavy trailer loads and high external tempera‐
tures, ensure that the fuel tank is more than
1/4 full.
Trailer stabilization control
This system supports the driver in stopping the
swinging of a trailer.
The trailer stabilization control detects swinging
and automatically brakes the vehicle quickly to
leave the critical speed range and stabilize the
vehicle-trailer combination.

has not been hitched, the system can become
active in certain driving situations, such as when
using a bicycle rack with lighting.

approx. 40 mph/65 km/h while a trailer is being
towed and the trailer power socket is in use.

fore swinging is detected.

vated or has malfunctioned.
