2.1.2. Recommendations about operation

It is necessary to make service and car repairs during a warranty period only at service stations with an obligatory mark about work in coupons of the service book, otherwise you lose a guarantee for the car.
It must be kept in mind that even cars of one model which is released practically at the same time have specific features of behavior on the road. It is recommended to use completely high-speed and dynamic opportunities of the car in process of accustoming to it, comprehension of its character and only after passing by the car of the first 2000–3000 km with observance of the restrictions specified in the subsection "Car Running in".
Before a trip warm up the engine idling as operation of not heated-up engine on the raised turns reduces the term of its service. At inclusion of a starter the lever of switching of the transmission has to be in neutral situation.
Do not allow operation of the engine with the frequency of rotation of a bent shaft during which the arrow of a tachometer is in a red zone of a scale.
It is forbidden to begin the movement of the car with the place "on a starter". It is possible to start only on the I transfer at completely lowered lever of the parking brake, smoothly releasing a coupling pedal.
Do not exceed the norms of loading capacity specified in a technical characteristic of the car: the overload results in the increased wear of tires and details of a suspension bracket, to loss of course stability.
Do not allow movement along roads with poor quality of a covering at the increased speeds. "Breakdowns" of a suspension bracket by which the movement in such modes, as a rule, is followed lead to damage and deformation of knots of a running gear of the car. In this case there can be damages and deformations of a body.
Regularly check air pressure in tires: the lowered pressure results in intensive wear of tires. The difference of values of pressure in tires of 0,2-0,3 atm leads to deterioration in controllability of the car.
Regularly check a condition of rubber protective covers of spherical support, hinges of equal angular speeds and hinges of steering drafts. The damaged covers should be replaced as water and dirt will quickly put mechanisms out of action.
For gas station use the fuels and lubricants and operational liquids recommended by manufacturer.
Regularly check a condition of plugs of the rechargeable battery and fastening of wires for them. The weakened fastening or oxidation of plugs can put electronic devices of the car out of action.
Remember that plugs of the rechargeable battery of different diameter: the positive plug is more than negative. You watch that wires were connected according to the polarity specified on their tips and plugs.
At a charge of the rechargeable battery directly on the car from an external source of current surely disconnect it from the generator (remove the plus plug from the rechargeable battery).
Do not skirt deadlines of carrying out control осмотровых and scheduled works. You carry out all works in full. Frequency of work is specified in section 4 "Maintenance".
