Highway Driving

When driving at highway speeds, pay attention to the following:Suzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 01 Stopping distance progressively increases with vehicle speed. Apply the brakes far enough ahead of the stopping point to allow for the extra stopping distance. On rainy days, hydroplaning can occur. Hydroplaning is the loss of direct contact between the road surface and the vehicle’s tyres due to a water film forming between them. Steering or braking the vehicle during hydroplaning can be very difficult, and loss of control can occur. Keep speed down when the road surface is wet.Suzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 02

  • At high speeds, the vehicle may be affected by side winds. Therefore, reduce speed and be prepared for unexpected buffeting, which can occur at the exits of tunnels, when passing by a cut of a hill, or when being overtaken by large vehicles, etc.
  • Driving on HillsSuzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 03

  • When climbing steep hills, the vehicle may begin to slow down and show a lack of power. If this happens, you should shift to a lower gear so that the engine will again be operating in its higher power range. Shift rapidly to prevent the vehicle from losing momentum. When driving down a hill, the engine should be used for braking by shifting to the next lower gear.

Do not hold the brake pedal down too long or too often while going down a steep or long hill. This could cause the brakes to overheat, resulting in reduced braking efficiency. Failure to take this precaution could result in loss of vehicle control.

When descending a downhill, Never turn the ignition key to the “LOCK” position. Emission control system damage may result.

Driving on Slippery RoadsSuzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 04

On wet roads, you should drive at a lower speed than you do on dry roads due to possible slippage of tyres during braking. When driving on icy, snow-covered, or muddy roads, reduce your speed and avoid sudden acceleration, abrupt braking, or sharp steering movements.

Stuck Vehicle

If your vehicle gets stuck in snow, mud, or sand, follow the directions below:

  1. Shift the transmission back and forth between a forward range (or 1st gear) and “R” (Reverse). This will create a rocking motion which may give you enough momentum to free the vehicle. Press gently on the accelerator to keep the wheel spinning to a minimum wheel rpm. Remove your foot from the accelerator while shifting.
    Do not race the engine. Excessive wheel spin will cause the tyres to dig deeper, making it more difficult to free the vehicle.
    If your vehicle is equipped with the ESP®, you may have to turn the ESP® system off in order to allow the spinning the wheels.
  2. If your vehicle remains stuck after a few minutes of rocking, we recommend you to consult a SUZUKI dealer or a qualified workshop or a roadside assistance service. If a towing service is not available in an emergency, your vehicle may be temporarily towed by another vehicle with a towing cable or chain secured to the towing eye either on the front of the vehicle or on the rear of the vehicle. Refer to “Frame Hook” in the “OTHER CONTROLS AND EQUIPMENT” section.

Do not allow anyone to stand near the vehicle when you are rocking it, and do not spin the wheels faster than an indicated 40 km/h (25 mph) on the speedometer. Personal injury and/or vehicle damage may result from spinning the wheels too fast.Suzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 05

Do not continue rocking the vehicle for more than a few minutes. Prolonged rocking can cause engine overheating or transmission damage.Suzuki New CARRY 2019 Highway Driving User Manual 06

In addition to following the driving tips in this section, it is important to observe the following precautions
Make sure your tyres are in good condition and always maintain the specified tyre pressure. Refer to “Tyres” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section for details.

  • Do not use tyres other than those specified by SUZUKI. Never use different sizes or types of tyres on the front and rear wheels. For information regarding the specified tyres, refer to the tyre information label located on the driver’s door lock pillar.
  • Never use oversized tyres or special shock absorbers and springs to raise (jack up) your vehicle. This will change the handling characteristics. Oversized tyres may also rub against the fender over bumps, causing vehicle damage or tyre failure.
  • After driving through water, test the brakes while driving at a slow speed to see if they have maintained their normal effectiveness. If the brakes are less effective than normal, dry them by repeatedly applying the brakes while driving slowly until the brakes have regained their normal effectiveness.
