Using the Transmission

Do not hang any items on the gear-shift lever and do not use the gear-shift lever as a handiest. Otherwise, it could prevent proper operation of the gearshift lever and cause its mal-function, resulting in an accident.

Starting off
To start off, depress the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and shift into 1st gear. After releasing the parking brake, gradually release the clutch pedal. When you hear a change in the engine’s sound, slowly press the accelerator while continuing to gradually release the clutch pedal.

For the starting, the vehicle of GCC Countries’ models, refer to “For GCC Countries” in the “SUPPLEMENT” section.
For starting the vehicle of the Taiwan model, refer to “For Taiwan” in the “SUP-PLEMENT” section.

All forward gears are synchronized, which provides for quiet and easy shifting. Always depress the clutch pedal all the way to the floor before shifting gears.

Downshifting maximum allowable speeds

Downshifting km/h (mph)
2nd to 1st 15 (10)
3rd to 2nd 60 (35)
4th to 3rd 85 (50)
5th to 4th 130 (80)*

You may not accelerate to the maximum allowable speed because of the driving situation and/or the vehicle condition.

Reduce your speed and downshift to a lower gear before going down a long or steep hill. A lower gear will allow the engine to provide braking. Avoid riding the brakes or they may overheat, resulting in brake failure.
When driving on slippery roads, slow down before downshifting. Excessive and/or sudden changes in engine speed may cause loss of traction, which could cause you to lose control.

Do not downshift to a lower gear at a speed faster than the maximum allowable speeds for the next lower speed, or severe damage to engine and transmission can result. Make sure that the vehicle is completely stationary before you shift into “R” (Reverse).

  • To help avoid clutch damage, do not use the clutch pedal as a footrest while driving or use the clutch to keep the vehicle stationary on a slope. Depress the clutch fully when shifting.
  • When shifting or starting off, do not race the engine. Racing the engine can shorten engine life and cause a negative effect to smooth shifting.

BrakingSuzuki New CARRY 2019 Using the Transmission User Manual 01

The distance needed to bring any vehicle to a halt increases with the speed of the vehicle. The braking distance needed, for example, at 60 km/h (37 mph) will be approximately 4 times greater than the braking distance needed at 30 km/h (19 mph). Start to depress the brake pedal when there is plenty of distance between your vehicle and the stopping point, and slow down gradually.

If water gets into the brake devices, brake performance may become poor and unpredictable. After driving through water or washing the underside of the vehicle, 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.

Power-assisted Brakes
Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes. If power assistance is lost due to a stalled engine or other failures, the system is still fully operational on reserve power and you can bring the vehicle to a complete stop by pressing the brake pedal once and holding it down. The reserve power is partly used up when you depress the brake pedal and reduces each time the pedal is pressed. Apply smooth and even pressure to the pedal. Do not pump the pedal.

Even without reserving power in the brake system, you can still stop the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal harder than normally required. However, the stopping distance may be longer.

Brake Assist System (if equipped)
When you slam the brakes on, the brake assist system determines it to be an emergency stop and provides more powerful braking for a driver who cannot hold down the brake pedal firmly.

If you quickly and forcefully depress the brakes, you may hear a clicking sound in the brake pedal. This is normal and indicates that the brake assist system is activated properly.
