Maintenance Tips

  •  Never use any other non-branded lubricants, since, it could damage the vehicle's system. Maintain recommended coolant.
  •  Oil level should be checked DAILY. Operating with insufficient amount of oil can damage the engine and such damage is not
     covered by the warranty.
  •  Do not crank the engine for more than 15 seconds at a time. If the engine does not start, wait 30 seconds and remove the key
     before cranking again.
  •  Let your engine stay idle for about a minute before starting to drive. Also let it be idle before switching it off.
  •  Do not race the engine while warming it up.
  •  Keep your engine tuned up. Malfunctions in the fuel injection or electrical systems can cause over-rich fuel flow into
     the engine, causing it to overheat.
  •  Do not continue driving if the belt is loose, broken or missing. This may cause severe hardening of brake pedal and
     continuous battery discharging.
  •  Avoid driving with an extremely low fuel level. Running out of fuel could cause the vehicle to not start due to air lock,
     or engine to misfire or damage the catalytic converter.
  •  Do not remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot. Otherwise, there is a danger of being burned by the coolant,
     which is likely to erupt from the radiator.

     and at authorized dealers only.
