  • Open the hood after turning off the vehicle on a flat surface, shifting the gear to the P (Park) position and setting the parking brake.
  • Before closing the hood, ensure that all obstructions are removed from the hood opening. Closing the hood with an obstruction present in the hood opening may result in property damage or severe personal injury.
  • Do not leave gloves, rags or any other combustible material in the motor compartment. Doing so may cause a heat-induced fire.
  • Always double check to be sure that the hood is firmly latched before driving away. If it is not latched, the hood could open while the vehicle is being driven, causing total loss of visibility, which might result in an accident.
  • Do not move the vehicle with the hood raised. The view will be blocked and the hood could fall or be damaged.
