Automatic transmission


After start of the engine and before inclusion of transfers press a brake. Otherwise the car will "gnash". Do not press at the same time a gas and brake pedal. After situation "D" inclusion the transmission works in an economic mode. It is possible to go by situation "D" practically always.

By soft pressing of a pedal of gas there is an early switching on transfers to economical fuel consumption. Manual switching is necessary only in exceptional cases. "З", "2" and "1" - only if you want to avoid switching on higher transfer or when braking by the engine.

As soon as the road situation allows, to switch to "D".

Positions of the lever of switching of R, R and N

R = parking. Forward wheels are blocked. Only at the standing car and the switched-on hand brake.

R= backing. To include only at the standing car.

N= neutral situation and idling.

In the situation "R" or "N" at the tightened hand brake start the engine. At gear shifting gas not to press.

Step of D

D= long situation for normal conditions of driving on transfers with 1 on 4.

After engine and inclusion start the "D" transmission always works in a mode of economic driving.

Step 3

3= situation for driving on 1, 2-3 transfers.

Step 2

2= situation for driving on 1-2 transfers, for example, on a mountain serpentine, thus a box is not switched to the 3rd and 4th transfers.

Step 1

1= situation for the maximum brake effort, for example, on abrupt descents, a box is not switched to transfers above the 1st.

Driving modes with electronic control

• The sports program, transfer is switched at high turns: press the key "S" (burns)
• The economic program, transfer is switched at low turns:

repeatedly press the key "S"

• The help at a troganiye from a place.

The help at a troganiye from a place

At difficulties on slippery roads for a troganiye from a place press a key (it is switched only in situation "D" - inclusion control). The car will get under way on the 3rd transfer.

The help in a troganiye from a place is disconnected:

• At speed over 80 km/h.

Besides, shutdown is possible at:

• Repeated pressing of a key.

• Manual inclusion of "R", "З", "2" or "1".

• Pressing of a pedal of an accelerator during more than 2 seconds.

• Ignition switching off.

Kickdown - sharp pressing against the stop on an accelerator pedal

Pressing of a pedal of an accelerator against the stop: at speed below a certain value the box is switched to lower transfer. It is applied to acceleration with use of full capacity of the engine.
Additional braking by the engine

For use of brake functions of the engine at descent in due time to include "3", "2" or if that is demanded by a situation, "1" step.

Brake action at a step "1" is especially effective. If "1" it is included at too high speed, the box will continue to work at the 2nd transfer until when, for example, at the expense of braking, the point of transition to the 1st transfer will be reached.


The included step at a stop with working engine can be kept.

At a stop on slopes surely involve the parking brake or press a brake pedal - do not hold the car on a place by increase in number of turns on the included transfer.

At long parking, for example, in a stopper or on moving, switch off the engine.

Before an exit from the car, at first to turn on the parking brake, then switch to "R" and take the ignition key.


To shake got stuck in sand, dirt, snow or in a ditch the car for its further advance, it is possible to switch at slightly pressed pedal of an accelerator a control lever between D and R. To hold frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine as it is possible below and to avoid sharp pressing an accelerator pedal.

The way described above to apply only in exceptional cases.

Exact maneuvering

For exact maneuvering, for example, at a parking, arrival in garage, etc., it is possible to use effect of slipping on biases. Speed of movement to regulate an easy otpuskaniye of a pedal of a brake.

Not to involve at all at the same time a gas and brake pedal.



The transmission automatically is not switched.

Transfers 1., 3. and 4. switch manually by means of the lever:

1= 1st transfer

2= 3rd transfer

3= 3rd transfer

D= 4th transfer

N= neutral (idling)

R= backing

R = parking

If after start of the engine continues to blink, address in специализиро a bathing workshop of Orel. The function of self-checking built in system will facilitate a quick help.
