Check the pressure of cold tyres at least every 14 days and before any long journey. Do not forget the spare wheel. This also applies to vehicles with tyre pressure monitoring system. Use the valve cap key to make unscrewing the valve caps easier. The valve cap key is located on the inside of the tank flap. Tyre pressure 3 210.

The tyre pressure data refers to cold tyres. It applies to summer and winter tyres. Always inflate the spare tyre to the pressure specified for full load. The ECO tyre pressure serves to achieve the smallest amount of fuel consumption possible. Incorrect tyre pressures will impair safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel economy and will increase tyre wear.

Tyre pressure monitoring system
The tyre pressure monitoring system checks the pressure of all four wheels once per minute when vehicle speed exceeds a certain limit. All wheels must be equipped with pressure sensors and the tyres must have the prescribed pressure. If wheels without sensors are mounted, the tyre pressure monitoring system is not operational. 

Temperature dependency Tyre pressure depends on the 
temperature of the tyre. During driving, tyre temperature and pressure increase. The tyre pressure value shown in the Info-Display is the actual tyre pressure. Therefore it is important to check tyre pressure with cold tyres.

General information 
The use of commercially available liquid tyre repair kits can impair the function of the system. Factory-approved tyre repair kits can be used. Tyre repair kit 3 183. External high-power radio equipment could disrupt the TPMS. The tyre pressure monitoring system valve cores and sealing rings must be replaced each time the tyres are changed.

Recommended fluids, lubricants and parts
Only use products that have been tested and approved. Damage resulting from the use of non-approved materials will not be covered by the warranty. Engine oil is identified by its quality and its viscosity. Quality is more important than viscosity when selecting which engine oil to use. The oil quality ensures e.g. engine cleanliness, wear protection and oil aging control, whereas viscosity grade gives information on the oil's thickness over a temperature range.

Dexos is the newest engine oil quality that provides optimum protection for gasoline and diesel engines. If it is unavailable, engine oils of other listed qualities have to be used. Recommendations for gasoline engines are also valid for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Ethanol (E85) fuelled engines. Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and on the minimum ambient temperature

Topping up engine oil 
Engine oils of different manufacturers and brands can be mixed as long as they comply with the required engine oil quality and viscosity. Use of engine oil with only ACEA A1 or only A5 quality is prohibited, since it can cause long-term engine damage under certain operating conditions. Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and on the minimum ambient temperature

Brake and clutch fluid
Only use high-performance brake fluid approved for the vehicle, consult a workshop. Over time, brake fluid absorbs moisture which will reduce braking effectiveness. The brake fluid should therefore be replaced at the specified interval. Brake fluid should be stored in a sealed container to avoid water absorption. Ensure brake fluid does not become contaminated.

Additional engine oil additives 
The use of additional engine oil additives could cause damage and invalidate the warranty.

Engine oil viscosity grades 
The SAE viscosity grade gives information of the thickness of the oil. Multigrade oil is indicated by two figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first figure, followed by a W, indicates the low temperature viscosity and the second figure the high temperature viscosity. Select the appropriate viscosity grade depending on the minimum ambient temperature 3 125. All of the recommended viscosity grades are suitable for high ambient temperatures.

Coolant and antifreeze 
Use only silicate-free long life coolant (LLC) antifreeze approved for the vehicle, consult a workshop. The system is factory filled with coolant designed for excellent corrosion protection and frost protection down to approx. -28 °C. This concentration should be maintained all year round. The use of additional coolant additives that intend to give additional corrosion protection or seal against minor leaks can cause function problems. Liability for consequences resulting from the use of additional coolant additives will be rejected.
