Automatic Transmission
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
The CVT is electronically controlled to
produce maximum power and smooth
operation. A display in the instrument
cluster indicates the selected range.
P : This position locks the drive wheels. Use
P (Park) when starting the engine because
the vehicle cannot move easily.
It is dangerous to get out of the vehicle
if the shift lever is not fully in P (Park)
with the parking brake firmly set. The
vehicle can roll.
Do not leave the vehicle when the engine
is running. If you have left the engine
running, the vehicle can move suddenly.
You or others could be injured. To be
sure the vehicle will not move, even
when you are on fairly level ground,
always set the parking brake and move
the shift lever to P (Park). See Shifting
Into Park 0 138.
Make sure the shift lever is fully in P (Park)
before starting the engine. The vehicle has a
shift lock release control. The brake pedal
must be fully applied, and the shift lever
button must be pressed before shifting from
P (Park) while the ignition is on. If the
transmission will not shift out of P (Park),
ease pressure on the shift lever and push
the shift lever all the way into P (Park) while
maintaining brake application. Then move
the shift lever into another gear. See
Shifting out of Park 0 139.
R : Use this gear to back up.
Shifting to R (Reverse) while the vehicle is
moving forward could damage the
transmission. The repairs would not be
covered by the vehicle warranty. Shift to
R (Reverse) only after the vehicle is
To rock the vehicle back and forth to get
out of snow, ice, or sand without damaging
the transmission, see If the Vehicle Is Stuck
0 128.
N : In this position, the engine does not
connect with the wheels. To restart the
engine when the vehicle is already moving,
use N (Neutral) only.
Shifting into a drive gear while the
engine is running at high speed is
dangerous. Unless your foot is firmly on
the brake pedal, the vehicle could move
very rapidly. You could lose control and
hit people or objects. Do not shift into a
drive gear while the engine is running at
high speed.
