General notes

Environmental note

Daimler's declared policy is one of integrated environmental protection.

The objectives are for the natural resources that form the basis of our existence on this planet to be used sparingly and in a manner that takes the requirements of both nature and humanity into account.

You too can help to protect the environment by operating your vehicle in an environmentally responsible manner.

Fuel consumption and the rate of engine, transmission, brake and tire wear depend on the following factors:
Х operating conditions of your vehicle Х your personal driving style

You can influence both factors. You should bear the following in mind: Operating conditions:
Х avoid short trips as these increase fuel consumption.

Х always make sure that the tire pressures are correct.

Х do not carry any unnecessary weight.

Х keep an eye on the vehicle's fuel consumption.

Х remove roof racks once you no longer need them.

Х a regularly serviced vehicle will contribute to environmental protection. You should therefore adhere to the service intervals.

Х always have service work carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.

Personal driving style: Х do not depress the accelerator pedal when starting the engine.

Х do not warm up the engine when the vehicle is stationary.

Х drive carefully and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front.

Х avoid frequent, sudden acceleration.

Х change gear in good time and use each gear only up to Ô of its maximum engine speed.

Х switch off the engine in stationary traffic.
