BRAKING

Your vehicle has vacuum assisted brakes.
The distance needed to bring the vehicle to a halt increases with the speed of the vehicle. Start applying brake anticipating the distance and slow down gradually.

WARNING

  1. Do not use the brake pedal as a footrest.
  2. If you rest your foot on the brake pedal while driving, the braking system can overheat and cause fading of brake pads. This in-creases the stopping distance and can even cause the braking system to fail. There is a risk of an accident.
  3. Do not press the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal at the same time.

If you have driven for a long time in heavy rain without braking, there may be a delayed reaction from the brakes when you brake for the first time. This may also occur after the vehicle has been washed.

Brake performance may become poor and unpredictable if brakes are wet.
After you drive through water or if you wash the underside of the vehicle, test the brakes at slow speeds to see if the brakes work fine. If the brakes are less effective than normal, dry them by repeatedly applying the brakes at slow speeds until the brakes have regained their normal effectiveness.
Check traffic conditions before doing the above activity.

Braking On Downhill Gradients

When you drive on downhill slopes, re-duce the load on the brakes by shifting to a lower gear. This is called as engine braking and aids to reduce overheating and wear of brakes.

WARNING
Do not shift to lower gears on a slippery road surface to in-crease the engine’s braking effect. By doing so, the tyres could lose their grip.
There is an increased danger of skidding and accidents.
