Driving downhill

  • Drive slowly.
  • Do not drive at an angle down steep inclines. Steer into the line of fall and drive with the front wheels aligned straight. Otherwise, the vehicle could slip sideways, tip and rollover.
  • Before tackling steep downhill gradients, select shift range 1.
  • Activate DSR. If this is not sufficient, brake gently. When doing so, make sure that the vehicle is facing in the direction of the line of fall.
  • Check that the brakes are working normally after a long downhill stretch.
