Driving Guidelines

Your vehicle is designed to give you


optimum handling and performance
on well-maintained roads. As part of
this design, your vehicle has a
minimum of ground clearance.

Use caution if you ever drive your


vehicle on very rough or rutted
roads. You could damage the
suspension and underbody by
bottoming out. Going too fast over
parking lot ‘‘speed bumps’’ can
also cause damage.
Curbs and steep inclines could
damage the front and rear
bumpers. Low curbs that do not
affect the average vehicle may be
high enough to hit the bumper on
your vehicle. The front or rear
bumper may scrape when trying to
drive onto an incline, such as a
steep driveway or trailer ramps.
