Child restraints Child restraint systems We recommend the Vauxhall child restraint system which is tailored specifically to the vehicle. When a child restraint system is being used, pay attention to the following usage and installation instructions and also those supplied with the child restraint system. Always comply with local or national regulations. In some countries, the use of child restraint systems is forbidden on certain seats. 9 Warning When using a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, the airbag systems for the front passenger seat must be deactivated; if not, the triggering of the airbags poses a risk of fatal injury to the child. 47 This is especially the case if rearfacing child restraint systems are used on the front passenger seat. Selecting the right system The rear seats are the most convenient location to fasten a child restraint system. Children should travel facing rearwards in the vehicle as long as possible. This makes sure that the child's backbone, which is still very weak, is under less strain in the event of an accident. Suitable restraint systems comply with ECE 44-03 or ECE 44-04. Check local laws and regulations for mandatory use of child restraint systems. Ensure that the child restraint system to be installed is compatible with the vehicle type. Ensure that the mounting location of the child restraint system within the vehicle is correct. 48 Seats, restraints Allow children to enter and exit the vehicle only on the side facing away from the traffic. When the child restraint system is not in use, secure the seat with a seat belt or remove it from the vehicle. Note Do not stick anything on the child restraint systems and do not cover them with any other materials. A child restraint system which has been subjected to stress in an accident must be replaced.

Maintenance Air intake Air conditioning regular operation In order to ensure continuously efficient performance, cooling must be operated for a few minutes once a month, irrespective of the weather and time of year. Operation with cooling is not possible when outside temperature is too low. Service The air intake in front of the windscreen in the engine compartment must be kept clear to allow air intake. Remove any leaves, dirt or snow. Pollen filter The pollen filter cleans dust, soot, pollen and spores from the air entering the vehicle through the air intake. For optimal cooling performance, it is recommended that the climate control system be checked annually, starting three years after initial vehicle registration, including: ■ Functionality and pressure test ■ Heating functionality ■ Leakage check ■ Check of drive belts ■ Cleaning of condenser and evaporator drainage ■ Performance check Driving and operating Driving and operating Driving hints ............................... 101 Starting and operating ............... 101 Engine exhaust .......................... 106 Manual transmission .................. 107 Manual transmission automa‐ ted .............................................. 108 Brakes ........................................ 112 Ride control systems ................. 113 Cruise control ............................. 115 Object detection systems ........... 116 Fuel ............................................ 118 Towing ....................................... 123 101 Driving hints Starting and operating Control of the vehicle New vehicle running-in Never coast with engine not running (except during Autostop) Many systems will not function in this situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power steering). Driving in this manner is a danger to yourself and others. All systems function during an Autostop, but there will be a controlled reduction in power steering assist and vehicle speed is reduced. Stop-start system 3 103. Pedals To ensure the pedal travel is uninhibited, there must be no mats in the area of the pedals. Do not brake unnecessarily hard for the first few journeys. During the first drive, smoke may occur because of wax and oil evaporating off the exhaust system. Park the vehicle in the open for a while after the first drive and avoid inhaling the fumes. During the running-in period fuel and engine oil consumption may be higher and the cleaning process of the diesel particle filter may take place more often. Autostop may be inhibited to allow for charging the battery. Diesel particle filter 3 106. 102 Driving and operating Ignition switch positions Starting the engine Before restarting or to switch off the engine, turn the key back to position STOP. Autostop During an Autostop, the engine is restarted automatically by depressing the clutch pedal. Vehicles with manual transmission automated (MTA): shift to a forward gear, release brake pedal or move lever to +, – or R to enable an automatic restart. Stop-start system 3 103. STOP = Steering wheel lock released, ignition off MAR = Ignition on, for diesel engine: preheating AVV = Starting Manual transmission: operate clutch and brake. Manual transmission automated: operate brake, the transmission automatically shifts to N (neutral) Do not operate the accelerator pedal. Diesel engine: turn the key to position MAR for preheating until control indicator ! extinguishes. Turn the key briefly to position AVV and release. Starting the vehicle at low temperatures The start of the engine without additional heaters is possible down to -25 °С for diesel engines and -30 °C for petrol engines. Required is an engine oil with the correct viscosity, the correct fuel, performed services and a sufficiently charged battery. Driving and operating Turbo engine warm-up Upon start-up, engine available torque may be limited for a short time, especially when the engine temperature is cold. The limitation is to allow the lubrication system to fully protect the engine. Vehicle shutdown Fuel cut-off system In the event of a collision of a certain severity, the fuel system is cut-off and the engine is switched off automatically, for safety reasons. A corresponding warning message may also appear in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. Note In addition, the vehicle is automatically unlocked and the interior lights are illuminated. Turn the ignition key to position STOP to prevent battery discharge and seek the assistance of a workshop immediately. Have the vehicle checked for fuel leaks in the engine compartment, beneath the vehicle and near the fuel tank. To reset the fuel cut-off system and enable the vehicle to be driven: 1. Turn the ignition key to position MAR 3 102 2. Fully actuate the right turn signal light 3 90 3. Deactivate the right turn signal light 4. Fully actuate the left turn signal light 5. Deactivate the left turn signal light 6. Repeat steps 2, 3, 4 and 5. 7. Turn the ignition key to position STOP. 9 Danger If you can smell fuel in the vehicle, or a fuel leak is present, have the cause of this remedied immediately by a workshop. Do not reset the fuel cut-off system, to avoid the risk of fire. 103 Fuel system messages 3 85. Overrun cut-off The fuel supply is automatically cutoff during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle is driven with a gear engaged but accelerator is released. Stop-start system The stop-start system helps to save fuel and to reduce exhaust emissions. When conditions allow, it switches off the engine as soon as the vehicle is at a low speed or at a standstill, e.g. at a traffic light or in a traffic jam. It starts the engine automatically as soon as the clutch is depressed. A battery sensor ensures that an Autostop is only performed if the battery is sufficiently charged for a restart. 104 Driving and operating Activation The stop-start system is available as soon as the engine is started, the vehicle starts-off and the conditions as stated below in this section are fulfilled. Deactivation Deactivate the stop-start system manually by pressing the ^ button in the centre console. LED in the button illuminates to confirm deactivation. Autostop If the vehicle is at a low speed or at a standstill, activate an Autostop as follows: ■ Depress the clutch pedal ■ set the lever to neutral ■ release the clutch pedal The engine will be switched off while the ignition stays on. An Autostop is indicated when control indicator ^ flashes in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. During an Autostop, the heating and brake performance will be maintained. Caution The steering assist can be reduced during an Autostop. Conditions for an Autostop The stop-start system checks if each of the following conditions is fulfilled. Otherwise an Autostop will be inhibited. ■ The stop-start system is not manually deactivated ■ the bonnet is fully closed ■ the driver's door is closed and the driver's seat belt is fastened ■ the battery is sufficiently charged and in good condition ■ the engine is warmed up ■ the engine coolant temperature is not too high ■ the engine exhaust temperature is not too high, e.g. after driving with high engine load Driving and operating ■ the ambient temperature is not too low ■ the climate control system allows an Autostop ■ the self-cleaning function of the diesel particle filter is not active ■ the vehicle has moved since the last Autostop ■ the brake vacuum is sufficient ■ the windscreen wipers are not operating at fast speed ■ reverse gear is not selected ■ heated rear window is not operating Ambient temperature near to the freezing point can inhibit an Autostop. For manual transmission automated vehicles, an Autostop may be inhibited until a speed of approx. 6 mph is reached. New vehicle running-in 3 101. Battery discharge protection To ensure reliable engine restarts, several battery discharge protection features are implemented as part of the stop-start system. Restart the engine Manual transmission The selector lever must be in neutral to enable an automatic restart. Depress the clutch pedal to restart the engine. Manual transmission automated If the lever is in position N, select another gear, otherwise release the brake pedal or move the lever to +, – or R to enable an automatic restart. When one of the following conditions occurs during an Autostop, the engine will need to be restarted manually using the key. ■ the driver's seat belt is unfastened and the driver's door is opened ■ three minutes have elapsed since the engine was switched off If an electrical accessory, e.g. a portable CD player, is connected to the power outlet, a brief power drop during the restart may be noticeable. 105 Parking ■ Do not park the vehicle on an easily ignitable surface. The high temperature of the exhaust system could ignite the surface. ■ Always apply parking brake. Apply manual parking brake without pressing release button. Apply as firmly as possible on downhill or uphill slopes. Depress the foot brake at the same time to reduce operating force. ■ Switch off the engine and ignition. Turn the steering wheel until the steering wheel lock engages. ■ If the vehicle is on a level surface or uphill slope, engage first gear. On an uphill slope, turn the front wheels away from the kerb. If the vehicle is on a downhill slope, engage reverse gear. Turn the front wheels towards the kerb. ■ Lock the vehicle. 106 Driving and operating Note In the event of an accident with airbag deployment, the engine is turned off automatically if the vehicle comes to a standstill within a certain time. Engine exhaust 9 Danger Engine exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon monoxide, which is colourless and odourless and could be fatal if inhaled. If exhaust gases enter the interior of the vehicle, open the windows. Have the cause of the fault rectified by a workshop. Avoid driving with an open load compartment, otherwise exhaust gases could enter the vehicle. Diesel particle filter The diesel particle filter system filters harmful soot particles out of the exhaust gases. The system includes a self-cleaning function that runs automatically during driving without any notification. The filter is cleaned by periodically burning off the soot particles at high temperature. This process takes place automatically under set driving conditions and may take up to 25 minutes. Typically it needs 15 minutes. Autostop is not available and fuel consumption may be higher during this period. The emission of smells and smoke during this process is normal. Under certain driving conditions, e.g. short distances, the system cannot clean itself automatically. If the cleaning of the filter is required and if previous driving conditions did not enable automatic cleaning, it will be indicated by control indicator [. Simultaneously a message may appear in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. Control indicator [ illuminates when diesel particle filter is full. Start cleaning process as soon as possible to avoid damage to the engine. Cleaning process To activate cleaning process, continue driving, keep engine speed above 2000 rpm. Shift down if necessary. Diesel particle filter cleaning is then started. Driving and operating Caution If the cleaning process is interrupted, there is a risk of provoking severe engine damage. Cleaning takes place quickest at high engine speeds and loads. Control indicator [ extinguishes as soon as the self-cleaning operation is complete. Catalytic converter The catalytic converter reduces the amount of harmful substances in the exhaust gases. Caution Fuel grades other than those listed on pages 3 118, 3 164 could damage the catalytic converter or electronic components. Unburnt petrol will overheat and damage the catalytic converter. Therefore avoid excessive use of the starter, running the fuel tank dry and starting the engine by pushing or towing. 107 Manual transmission In the event of misfiring, uneven engine running, a reduction in engine performance or other unusual problems, have the cause of the fault rectified by a workshop as soon as possible. In an emergency, driving can be continued for a short period, keeping vehicle speed and engine speed low. To engage reverse, with the vehicle stationary, wait 3 seconds after depressing the clutch pedal, pull up the collar on the selector lever and engage the gear. If the gear does not engage, set the lever to neutral, release the clutch pedal and depress again; then repeat gear selection. Do not grind the clutch unnecessarily. When operating, depress the clutch pedal completely. Do not use the pedal as a foot rest. 108 Driving and operating Caution It is not advisable to drive with the hand resting on the selector lever. When gearshifting is recommended to improve fuel economy, control indicator [ or Ò illuminates in the Driver Information Centre 3 75. Manual transmission automated The manual transmission automated (MTA) permits manual (manual mode) or automatic gear shifting (automatic mode), both with automatic clutch control. Transmission display Starting the engine Depress the foot brake when starting the engine. If the foot brake is not depressed, a warning message appears in the Driver Information Centre in conjuction with a warning chime 3 85 and the engine cannot be started. Note The volume of the warning chime can also be adjusted via the Driver Information Centre 3 79. When the foot brake is depressed, the transmission automatically shifts to N (neutral) and the engine can be started. There may be a slight delay. Autostop Shows the mode and current gear. During an Autostop, if the gearshift lever is in position N, select another gear, otherwise release the brake pedal or move the lever to +, – or R to enable an automatic restart of the engine. Stop-start system 3 103. Driving and operating Selector lever R + - = Reverse gear. Engage only when vehicle is stationary. The transmission display shows "R" when reverse gear is engaged. = Shift to a higher gear. = Shift to a lower gear. Starting-off Always move the selector lever in the appropriate direction as far as it will go. After selecting A/M, + or - and releasing the selector lever, the lever automatically returns to the centre position. N = Neutral. = Drive position. o A/M = Switch between automatic and manual mode. The transmission display shows AUTO when in automatic mode. When the engine is started, depress the foot brake and move the selector lever towards + to engage first gear. Shift to a higher or lower gear by moving selector lever to + or -. Gears can be skipped by moving the selector lever repeatedly at short intervals. The driver will be alerted to an incorrect gear selection by an audible warning chime in conjunction with a message in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. The system will downshift, selecting the most appropriate gear automatically. If R is selected, reverse gear is engaged. The vehicle starts to move when the foot brake is released. To 109 start off quickly, release the foot brake and accelerate immediately after engaging a gear. Move the selector lever towards A/M to engage automatic mode; the transmission shifts to other gears automatically, dependent on driving conditions. To engage manual mode, move the selector lever towards A/M. The current gear will appear in the transmission display. Stopping the vehicle In automatic or manual mode, first gear is engaged and the clutch is released when the vehicle is stopped. In R, reverse gear remains engaged. When stopping on gradients, engage parking brake or depress the foot brake. To prevent overheating of the clutch, an intermittent audible warning chime may sound as a signal to depress the foot brake or apply the parking brake. Switch off engine if stopping for a lengthy period, e.g. in traffic jams. 110 Driving and operating When the vehicle is parked and the driver's door is opened, a warning chime will sound if neutral is not selected or the foot brake has not been depressed. Engine braking Automatic mode When driving downhill, the manual transmission automated does not shift into higher gears until a fairly high engine speed has been reached. It shifts down in good time when braking. Manual mode To utilise the engine braking effect, select a lower gear in good time when driving downhill. Rocking the vehicle Manual mode Parking If engine speed is too low, the transmission automatically shifts to a lower gear. In manual mode, no automatic shifting to a higher gear takes place at high engine revolutions. If engine speed is too high, the transmission only switches to a higher gear via kickdown. Kickdown 3 111. Rocking the vehicle is only permissible if the vehicle is stuck in sand, mud, snow or a hole. Move the selector lever between R and A/M (or between + and -) in a repeat pattern, while applying light pressure to the accelerator pedal. Do not race the engine and avoid sudden acceleration. Apply the parking brake. The most recently engaged gear (see transmission display) remains engaged. With N, no gear is engaged. When the ignition is switched off, the transmission no longer responds to movement of the selector lever. If the ignition is not switched off, or the parking brake has not been applied, a warning chime will sound upon opening the driver's door. Driving and operating Electronic driving programmes Eco mode E When automatic mode is engaged, the Eco mode can be selected to reduce fuel consumption. Eco mode selects the most suitable gear depending on the speed of the vehicle, the engine speed and the intensity with which the accelerator is pressed. 111 Activation Press the E button on the selector lever housing. Control indicator E is shown in the transmission display to indicate activation. If engine speed is too high the transmission switches to a higher gear, even in manual mode. Without kickdown this automatic shift is not effected in manual mode. Deactivation Eco mode is switched off by: ■ pressing the E button again, ■ switching to manual mode. In order to protect the transmission at extremely high clutch temperatures, an intermittent audible warning chime may sound. In such cases, depress the foot brake, select N and apply the parking brake to allow the clutch to cool down. Fault Kickdown If the accelerator pedal is pressed past the pressure point, the transmission shifts to a lower gear depending on engine speed. Full engine power is available for acceleration. In the event of a fault, control indicator Ñ is shown in the transmission display. Continued driving is possible, provided the vehicle is driven with care and anticipation. A warning message may appear in the Driver Information Centre in conjunction with a warning chime 3 85. Note The volume of the warning chime can also be adjusted via the Driver Information Centre 3 79. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. 112 Driving and operating Brakes The brake system comprises two independent brake circuits. If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can still be braked using the other brake circuit. However, braking effect is achieved only when the brake pedal is depressed firmly. Considerably more force is needed for this. The braking distance is extended. Seek the assistance of a workshop before continuing your journey. When the engine is not running, the support of the brake servo unit disappears once the brake pedal has been depressed once or twice. Braking effect is not reduced, but braking requires significantly greater force. It is especially important to bear this in mind when being towed. Control indicator R 3 74. Antilock brake system Antilock brake system (ABS) prevents the wheels from locking. ABS starts to regulate brake pressure as soon as a wheel shows a tendency to lock. The vehicle remains steerable, even during hard braking. ABS control is made apparent through a pulse in the brake pedal and the noise of the regulation process. For optimum braking, keep the brake pedal fully depressed throughout the braking process, despite the fact that the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce the pressure on the pedal. After starting off the system performs a self-test which may be audible. Control indicator u 3 75. hard braking, the vehicle can no longer be steered and may swerve. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Parking brake Manual parking brake Fault 9 Warning If there is a fault in the ABS, the wheels may be liable to lock due to braking that is heavier than normal. The advantages of ABS are no longer available. During Always apply parking brake firmly without operating the release button, and apply as firmly as possible on a downhill or uphill slope. Driving and operating To release the parking brake, pull the lever up slightly, press the release button and fully lower the lever. To reduce the operating forces of the parking brake, depress the foot brake at the same time. A warning chime will sound if a certain speed is exceeded with the parking brake applied. Note The volume of the warning chime can also be adjusted via the Driver Information Centre 3 79. Control indicator R 3 74. Brake assist If the brake pedal is depressed quickly and forcefully, maximum brake force is automatically applied (full braking). Maintain steady pressure on the brake pedal for as long as full braking is required. Maximum brake force is automatically reduced when the brake pedal is released. Hill start assist The system helps prevent unintended movement when driving away on inclines. When releasing the foot brake after stopping on an incline, the brakes remain on for a further two seconds. The brakes release automatically as soon as the vehicle begins to accelerate. If control indicator Z illuminates while driving, there is a fault in the Hill start assist 3 75. Seek the assistance of a workshop to have the fault remedied. The Hill start assist is not active during an Autostop. Stop-start system 3 103. 113 Ride control systems Traction Control system The Anti-Slip Regulator (ASR) is a component of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). ASR improves driving stability when necessary, regardless of the type of road surface or tyre grip, by preventing the drive wheels from spinning. As soon as the drive wheels starts to spin, engine output is reduced and the wheel spinning the most is braked individually. This considerably improves the driving stability of the vehicle on slippery road surfaces. ASR is operational as soon as the control indicator x extinguishes. When ASR is active, control indicator x flashes. 114 Driving and operating 9 Warning Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into taking risks when driving. Adapt speed to the road conditions. Deactivation ASR is reactivated by pressing the ASR OFF button again. ASR is also reactivated the next time the ignition is switched on. Fault ASR will switch off automatically in the event of a fault. Control indicator x will illuminate in the instrument cluster in conjunction with a message in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Control indicator x 3 76. Electronic stability program ASR can be switched off when spinning of drive wheels is required: press button ASR OFF briefly. LED in button illuminates and a message appears in the Driver Information Centre. Electronic Stability Program (ESP) improves driving stability when necessary, regardless of the type of road surface or tyre grip. It also prevents the drive wheels from spinning. As soon as the vehicle starts to swerve (understeer/oversteer), engine output is reduced and the wheels are braked individually. This considerably improves the driving stability of the vehicle on slippery road surfaces. ESP is operational as soon as control indicator x extinguishes. When ESP comes into action, control indicator x flashes. The ESP system is automatically activated when the vehicle is started and cannot be deactivated 9 Warning Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into taking risks when driving. Adapt speed to the road conditions. Fault In the event of a fault, ESP will be automatically switched off and control indicator x will illuminate in the instrument cluster in conjunction with a message in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. The LED in the ASR OFF button will also illuminate. Driving and operating Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Control indicator x 3 76. Cruise control The cruise control can store and maintain speeds above approx. 20 mph. Deviations from the stored speeds may occur when driving uphill or downhill. 115 Switching on Turn end of lever to the ON position; control indicator m illuminates in the instrument cluster in conjunction with a message in the Driver Information Centre. Activation Accelerate to the desired speed and push lever upwards (+); the current speed is stored and maintained. Accelerator pedal can be released. Vehicle speed can be increased by depressing the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator pedal is released, the previously stored speed is resumed. Cruise control remains activated while gearshifting. Do not use the cruise control if it is not advisable to maintain a constant speed. Control indicator m 3 79. Increase speed With cruise control active, push lever upwards (+) or briefly push lever upwards (+) repeatedly: speed increases continuously or in small increments. 116 Driving and operating Alternatively accelerate to the desired speed and store by pushing lever upwards (+). Reduce speed With cruise control active, push lever downwards (-) or briefly push lever downwards (-) repeatedly; speed decreases continuously or in small increments. Switching off Turn end of lever to the OFF position; control indicator m extinguishes. The stored speed is deleted. Switching off the ignition also deletes the stored speed. Object detection systems Parking assist Deactivation Automatic deactivation: ■ vehicle speed below approx. 20 mph, ■ the brake pedal is depressed, ■ the clutch pedal is depressed, ■ the traction control system/Anti-Slip Regulator (ASR) or Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is operating. Resume stored speed Press button = at a speed above 20 mph. The stored speed will be obtained. The parking assist makes parking easier by measuring the distance between the vehicle and obstacles, and giving acoustic signals. It is the driver, however, who bears full responsibility for the parking manoeuvre. The system consists of four ultrasonic parking sensors in the rear bumper. Control indicator r 3 75. Driving and operating System operation The parking assist is turned on automatically when reverse gear is engaged. The intervals between the beeps become shorter as the vehicle gets closer to the obstacle. When the distance is less than 30 cm, the beeping is a continuous tone which stops immediately when the distance is increased. Fault In the event of a fault in the system, r illuminates and a message is displayed in the Driver Information Centre 3 79. The following conditions could affect the system's performance: ■ The ultrasonic sensors are not clean. Keep the bumper free of mud, dirt, snow, ice and slush. ■ The sensors are covered by frost or ice. ■ The rear doors / tailgate are open. ■ An object was hanging out of the rear doors / tailgate during the last drive cycle. Once the object has been removed, the parking assist will return to normal operation. ■ An object or cover is attached to the rear of the vehicle. ■ The bumper is damaged. Take the vehicle to a workshop to repair the system. ■ Other conditions, such as vibrations from a jackhammer, are affecting system performance. In the event the system still does not work properly, seek the assistance of a workshop. A warning chime is also sounded briefly if a fault is present when reverse gear is engaged 3 85. Note The volume of the warning chime can also be adjusted via the Driver Information Centre 3 79. 117 Important hints for using the parking assist systems 9 Warning Under certain circumstances, various reflective surfaces on objects or clothing as well as external noise sources may cause the system to fail to detect obstacles. Special attention has to be paid to low obstacles which can damage the lower part of the bumper. If such obstacles leave the detection area of the sensors during approach of the vehicle, a continuous warning tone will sound. 118 Driving and operating Caution Performance of the sensor can be reduced when sensors are covered, e.g. by ice or snow. Performance of the parking assist systems can be reduced due to heavy loading. Special conditions apply if there are taller vehicles involved (e.g. off-road vehicles, mini vans, vans). Object identification in the upper part of these vehicles cannot be guaranteed. Objects with a very small reflection cross section, like objects of narrow size or soft materials, may not be detected by the system. Parking assist will not avoid a collision with objects which are out of the detection range of the sensors. Note The parking assist system automatically detects factory-fitted towing equipment. It is deactivated when the connector is plugged in. The sensor may detect a nonexistent object (echo disturbance) caused by external acoustic or mechanical disturbances. Fuel Fuel for petrol engines Only use unleaded fuel that complies with European standard EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent. Your engine is capable of running with E10 fuel that fulfills these standards. E10 fuel contains up to 10 % bioethanol. Use fuel with the recommended octane rating 3 164. Use of fuel with too low an octane rating can reduce engine power and torque and slightly increases fuel consumption. Caution Do not use fuel or fuel additives that contain metallic compounds such as manganese-based additives. This may cause engine damage. Driving and operating Caution Caution Use of fuel that does not comply to EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent can lead to deposits or engine damage and may affect your warranty. Use of fuel that does not comply to EN 590 or similar can lead to engine powerloss, increased wear or engine damage and may affect your warranty. Caution Use of fuel with too low an octane rating could lead to uncontrolled combustion and engine damage. Fuel for diesel engines Only use diesel fuel that complies with EN 590. In countries outside the European Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a sulphur concentration below 50 ppm. 119 Fuel selector Do not use marine diesel oils, heating oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must not be diluted with fuels for petrol engines. Fuel for natural gas operation Use natural gas with a methane content of approx. 78 - 99 %. L-gas (low) has approx. 78 - 87 % and H-gas (high) has approx. 87 - 99 %. Biogas with the same methane content can also be used if it has been chemically prepared and desulphurised. Only use natural gas or biogas that complies with DIN 51624. Liquid gas or LPG must not be used. Pressing button Y in the centre console switches between petrol and natural gas operation. The LED 1 status shows the current operating mode. 1 off = natural gas operation. 1 illumi‐ = petrol operation. nates As soon as the natural gas tanks are empty, petrol operation is automatically engaged. Control 120 Driving and operating indicator Y illuminates in the Driver Information Centre 3 79 until the ignition is switched off. A slight loss of power and torque can be expected in petrol operation. You must therefore adapt your driving style (e.g. during overtaking manoeuvres) and vehicle loads (e.g. towing loads) accordingly. Every six months run the petrol tank down until control indicator § illuminates and then refuel. This is necessary to maintain fuel quality as well as system function necessary for petrol operation. Fill the tank completely at regular intervals to prevent corrosion in the tank. Refuelling Fuel filler flap is located at left rear side of vehicle. 9 Danger Before refuelling, switch off engine and any external heaters with combustion chambers. Switch off any mobile phones. Follow the operating and safety instructions of the filling station when refuelling. 9 Danger Fuel is flammable and explosive. No smoking. No naked flames or sparks. If you can smell fuel in your vehicle, have the cause of this remedied immediately by a workshop. Caution In case of misfuelling, do not switch on ignition. Release the fuel filler flap by pulling the flap by hand. Insert key into fuel filler cap and turn anticlockwise to unlock. To remove fuel filler cap, rotate anticlockwise. Caution To avoid damage, do not attempt to operate the sliding side door when the fuel filler flap is open. Note Depending on model, the sliding side door may be fitted with a safety system that prevents the door from being opened fully when the fuel filler flap is open. Sliding side door 3 23. Driving and operating Insert key into fuel filler cap and turn clockwise to lock, then remove key. Close the fuel filler flap. Natural gas refuelling The fuel filler cap can be retained in the bracket on the fuel filler flap. To refuel, fully insert the pump nozzle and switch it on. After the automatic cut-off, the fuel tank can be topped up with a maximum of two doses of fuel. Caution Wipe off any overflowing fuel immediately. To close, replace fuel filler cap and turn clockwise. 121 The refuelling procedure must be completed, i.e. the filler neck must be vented. The capacity of the natural gas tank depends on outside temperature, filling pressure and type of refuelling system. Close the fuel filler flap after refuelling. Terms for "natural gas vehicles" abroad: German Erdgasfahrzeuge English NGVs = Natural Gas Vehi‐ cles Open the fuel filler flap. 9 Warning Refuel only with a maximum output pressure of 250 bar.

Fuel cut-off system In the event of a collision of a certain severity, the fuel system is cut-off and the engine is switched off automatically, for safety reasons. Resetting the fuel cut-off system; refer to "Fuel system messages" 3 85. Fuel consumption - CO2Emissions The fuel consumption (combined) of the Vauxhall Combo is within a range of 59 to 37 mpg. The CO2 emission (combined) is within a range of 179 to 126 g/km. For the values specific to your vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of Conformity provided with your vehicle or other national registration documents. General information The official fuel consumption and specific CO2 emission figures quoted relate to the EU base model with standard equipment. Fuel consumption data and CO2 emission data are determined according to regulation R (EC) No. 715/2007 (in the applicable version), taking into consideration the vehicle weight in running order, as specified by the regulation. The figures are provided only for the purpose of comparison between different vehicle variants and must not be taken as a guarantee for the actual fuel consumption of a particular vehicle. Additional equipment may result in slightly higher results than the stated fuel consumption and CO2 figures. Furthermore, fuel consumption is dependent on personal driving style as well as road and traffic conditions. Natural gas The fuel consumption information was obtained using reference fuel G20 (methane proportion 99 - 100 mol%) under prescribed driving conditions. When using natural gas with a lower proportion of methane, the fuel consumption can differ from the specified values. Driving and operating Towing General information Only use towing equipment that has been approved for your vehicle. Vehicles with natural gas engine may require special towing equipment. Entrust retrofitting of towing equipment to a workshop. It may be necessary to make changes that affect the cooling system, heat shields or other equipment. Fitting of towing equipment could cover the opening of the towing eye. If this is the case use the coupling ball bar for towing. Always keep the coupling ball bar in the vehicle. Driving characteristics and towing tips Before attaching a trailer, lubricate the coupling ball. However, do not do so if a stabiliser, which acts on the coupling ball, is being used to reduce snaking movements. For trailers with low driving stability and caravan trailers with a permitted gross vehicle weight of more than 1300 kg the use of a stabiliser is strongly recommended when driving above 50 mph. If the trailer starts snaking, drive more slowly, do not attempt to correct the steering and brake sharply if necessary. When driving downhill, drive in the same gear as if driving uphill and drive at a similar speed. Adjust tyre pressure to the value specified for full load 3 174. Trailer towing Trailer loads The permissible trailer loads are vehicle and engine-dependent maximum values which must not be exceeded. The actual trailer load is the difference between the actual gross weight of the trailer and the actual coupling socket load with the trailer coupled. 123 The permissible trailer loads are specified in the vehicle documents. In general, they are valid for gradients up to max. 12 %. The permitted trailer load applies up to the specified incline and up to an altitude of 1000 metres above sea level. Since engine power decreases as altitude increases due to the air becoming thinner, therefore reducing climbing ability, the permissible gross train weight also decreases by 10 % for every 1000 metres of additional altitude. The gross train weight does not have to be reduced when driving on roads with slight inclines (less than 8 %, e.g. motorways). The permissible gross train weight must not be exceeded. This weight is specified on the identification plate 3 161. Vertical coupling load The vertical coupling load is the load exerted by the trailer on the coupling ball. It can be varied by changing the weight distribution when loading the trailer. 124 Driving and operating The maximum permissible vertical coupling load (75 kg) is specified on the towing equipment identification plate and in the vehicle documents. Always aim for the maximum load, especially in the case of heavy trailers. The vertical coupling load should never fall below 25 kg. Rear axle load The permissible axle loads (see identification plate or vehicle documents) must not be exceeded.

Wheel changing 3 147, Spare wheel 3 149. Winter tyres Winter tyres improve driving safety at temperatures below 7 °C and should therefore be fitted on all wheels. Tyres of size 185/65 R15, 195/65 R15 and 195/60 R16 C are permitted as winter tyres. In accordance with country-specific regulations, affix the speed sticker in the driver's field of view. Vehicle care Tyre designations E.g. 215/60 R 16 95 H 215 = Tyre width, mm 60 = Cross-section ratio (tyre height to tyre width), % R = Belt type: Radial RF = Type: RunFlat C = Cargo or commercial use 16 = Wheel diameter, inches 95 = Load index e.g. 95 is equivalent to 690 kg H = Speed code letter Speed code letter: Q = up to 100 mph S = up to 112 mph T = up to 118 mph H = up to 130 mph V = up to 150 mph W = up to 168 mph Tyre pressure Check the pressure of cold tyres at least every 14 days and before any long journey. Do not forget the spare wheel. Unscrew the valve cap. Tyre pressure 3 174. The tyre pressure data refers to cold tyres. It applies to summer and winter tyres. Always inflate the spare tyre to the pressure specified for full load. Incorrect tyre pressures will impair safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel economy and will increase tyre wear. The driver is responsible for correct adjustment of tyre pressures. 143 For safety reasons, it is recommended that the tread depth of the tyres on one axle should not vary by more than 2 mm. 9 Warning If the pressure is too low, this can result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to tread separation and even to tyre blow-out at high speeds. Tread depth Check tread depth at regular intervals. Tyres should be replaced for safety reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm (4 mm for winter tyres). The legally permissible minimum tread depth (1.6 mm) has been reached when the tread has worn down as far as one of the tread wear indicators (TWI). Their position is indicated by markings on the sidewall. If there is more wear at the front than the rear, swap round front wheels and rear wheels periodically. Ensure that the direction of rotation of the wheels is the same as before. 144 Vehicle care Tyres age, even if they are not used. We recommend tyre replacement every 6 years. Changing tyre and wheel size If tyres of a different size than those fitted at the factory are used, it may be necessary to reprogramme the speedometer as well as the nominal tyre pressure and make other vehicle modifications. After converting to a different tyre size, have the label with tyre pressures replaced. 9 Warning Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels may lead to accidents and will invalidate the vehicle type approval. Wheel covers Tyre chains Wheel covers and tyres that are factory approved for the respective vehicle and comply with all of the relevant wheel and tyre combination requirements must be used. If the wheel covers and tyres used are not factory approved, the tyres must not have a rim protection ridge. Wheel covers must not impair brake cooling. 9 Warning Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel covers could lead to sudden pressure loss and thereby accidents. Tyre chains are only permitted on the front wheels. Always use fine mesh chains that add no more than 10 mm to the tyre tread and the inboard sides (including chain lock). Do not exceed 30 mph when tyre chains are fitted. 9 Warning Damage may lead to tyre blowout. Vehicle care 145 Tyre repair kit Minor damage to the tyre tread can be repaired with the tyre repair kit. Do not remove foreign bodies from the tyres. Tyre damage exceeding 4 mm or that is at tyre's sidewall cannot be repaired with the tyre repair kit. 9 Warning Do not drive faster than 50 mph. Do not use for a lengthy period. Steering and handling may be affected. If you have a flat tyre: Apply the parking brake and engage first or reverse gear. The tyre repair kit may be located under the front seat, in the glovebox, or on the right side of the load compartment behind a cover. 1. Take the tyre repair kit from the vehicle. 2. Remove the compressor. 3. Set the compressor upright near the tyre. 4. Unscrew valve cap from defective tyre. 5. Screw the flexible filler hose onto the tyre valve. 6.

To avoid discharging the battery, we recommend running the engine. 146 Vehicle care 11. 12. 13. 8. Set the rocker switch on the compressor to I. The tyre is filled with sealant. 9. All of the sealant is pumped into the tyre. Then the tyre is inflated. Tyre pressure 3 174. When the correct pressure is obtained, switch off the compressor. 10. If a pressure of 1.5 bar is not obtained within 5 minutes, remove the tyre repair kit. Move the vehicle one tyre rotation. Reattach the tyre repair kit and continue the filling procedure for 5 minutes. If a pressure of 1.8 bar is still not obtained within 14. 5 minutes, the tyre is too badly damaged. Seek the assistance of a workshop. Do not run the compressor longer than 20 minutes. Detach the tyre repair kit. Remove any excess sealant using a cloth. Take the label indicating maximum permitted speed from the sealant bottle and affix in the driver's field of view. Continue driving immediately so that sealant is evenly distributed in the tyre. After driving approx. 6 miles (but no more than 10 minutes), stop and check tyre pressure. Screw compressor air hose directly onto tyre valve and compressor when doing this. If tyre pressure is more than 1.8 bar, set it to the correct value. Repeat the procedure until there is no more loss of pressure. If the tyre pressure has fallen below 1.8 bar, the vehicle must not be used. Seek the assistance of a workshop. 15. Stow away tyre repair kit in load compartment. Vehicle care Note The driving characteristics of the repaired tyre are severely affected, therefore have this tyre replaced. If unusual noise is heard or the compressor becomes hot, turn compressor off and allow to cool. Note the expiry date of the kit. After this date its sealing capability is no longer guaranteed. Pay attention to storage information on sealant bottle. Replace the used sealant bottle. Dispose of the bottle as prescribed by applicable laws. The compressor and sealant can be used from approx. -20 °C. Replacing the sealant canister To replace the sealant canister: 1. Disconnect the compressor air hose. 2. Turn the canister anticlockwise to lift it out. 3. Insert the new canister and turn it clockwise. 4. Connect the compressor air hose to the canister and fit the flexible filler tube into its allocated space. Wheel changing Some vehicles are equipped with a tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel 3 145. 147 Make the following preparations and observe the following information: ■ Park the vehicle on a level, firm and non-skid surface. The front wheels must be in the straight-ahead position. ■ Apply the parking brake and engage first or reverse gear. ■ Remove the spare wheel 3 149. ■ Never change more than one wheel at once. ■ Use the jack only to change wheels in case of puncture, not for seasonal winter or summer tyre change. ■ If the ground on which the vehicle is standing is soft, a solid board (max. 1 cm thick) should be placed under the jack. ■ No people or animals may be in the vehicle when it is jacked-up. ■ Never crawl under a jacked-up vehicle. 148 Vehicle care ■ Do not start the vehicle when it is raised on the jack. ■ Clean wheel nuts and thread with a clean cloth before mounting the wheel. 2.

Have the defective tyre renewed or repaired as soon as possible. ■ Drive particularly carefully on wet and snow-covered road surfaces. 152 Vehicle care Jump starting Do not start with quick charger. A vehicle with a discharged battery can be started using jump leads and the battery of another vehicle. 9 Warning Be extremely careful when starting with jump leads. Any deviation from the following instructions can lead to injuries or damage caused by battery explosion or damage to the electrical systems of both vehicles. 9 Warning Avoid contact of the battery with eyes, skin, fabrics and painted surfaces. The fluid contains sulphuric acid which can cause injuries and damage in the event of direct contact. ■ Never expose the battery to naked flames or sparks. ■ A discharged battery can already freeze at a temperature of 0 °C. Defrost the frozen battery before connecting jump leads. ■ Wear eye protection and protective clothing when handling a battery. ■ Use a booster battery with the same voltage (12 Volts). Its capacity (Ah) must not be much less than that of the discharged battery. ■ Use jump leads with insulated terminals and a cross section of at least 16 mm2 (25 mm2 for diesel engines). ■ Do not disconnect the discharged battery from the vehicle. ■ Switch off all unnecessary electrical consumers. ■ Do not lean over the battery during jump starting. ■ Do not allow the terminals of one lead to touch those of the other lead. ■ The vehicles must not come into contact with each other during the jump starting process. ■ Apply the parking brake, transmission in neutral. Lead connection order: 1. Connect the red lead to the positive terminal of the booster battery. 2. Connect the other end of the red lead to the positive terminal of the discharged battery. Vehicle care 3. Connect the black lead to the negative terminal of the booster battery. 4. Connect the other end of the black lead to a vehicle grounding point, such as the engine block or an engine mounting bolt. Connect as far away from the discharged battery as possible, however at least 60 cm. Route the leads so that they cannot catch on rotating parts in the engine compartment. To start the engine: 1. Start the engine of the vehicle providing the jump. 2. After 5 minutes, start the other engine. Start attempts should be made for no longer than 15 seconds at an interval of 1 minute. 3. Allow both engines to idle for approx. 3 minutes with the leads connected. 4. Switch on electrical consumers (e.g. headlights, heated rear window) of the vehicle receiving the jump start. 5. Reverse above sequence exactly when removing leads. 153 Towing Towing the vehicle Release the cap by carefully lifting with a screwdriver. To prevent damage, it is recommended to place a cloth between the screwdriver and the frame. The towing eye is stowed with the vehicle tools 3 142. Screw in the towing eye as far as it will go until it stops in a horizontal position. Attach a tow rope – or better still a tow rod – to the towing eye. 154 Vehicle care Caution The towing eye must only be used for towing and not for recovering the vehicle. Switch on ignition to release steering wheel lock and to permit operation of brake lights, horn and windscreen wiper. Transmission in neutral. To prevent the entry of exhaust gases from the towing vehicle, switch on the air recirculation and close the windows. Seek the assistance of a workshop. After towing, unscrew the towing eye and replace the cap. Towing another vehicle Caution Note If neutral cannot be selected on vehicles with manual transmission automated (MTA), the vehicle must only be towed with the drive wheels raised off the ground. Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily. Excessive tractive force can damage the vehicle. After towing, unscrew the towing eye. Insert cap. Caution Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily. Excessive tractive force can damage the vehicle. When the engine is not running, considerably more force is needed to brake and steer. The towing eye is stowed with the vehicle tools 3 142. Screw in the towing eye as far as it will go until it stops in a horizontal position. Attach a tow rope – or even better a tow bar – to the towing eye. The towing eye must only be used for towing and not for recovering a vehicle. Insert a screwdriver in the slot at the side of the cap. Release the cap by carefully levering the screwdriver. To prevent damage it is recommended to place a cloth between the screwdriver and the frame. Vehicle care Appearance care Exterior care Locks The locks are lubricated at the factory using a high quality lock cylinder grease. Use de-icing agent only when absolutely necessary, as this has a degreasing effect and impairs lock function. After using de-icing agent, have the locks regreased by a workshop. Washing The paintwork of your vehicle is exposed to environmental influences. Wash and wax your vehicle regularly. When using automatic vehicle washes, select a programme that includes waxing. Bird droppings, dead insects, resin, pollen and the like should be cleaned off immediately, as they contain aggressive constituents which can cause paint damage. If using a vehicle wash, comply with the vehicle wash manufacturer's instructions. The windscreen wiper and rear window wiper must be switched off. Remove antenna and external accessories such as roof racks etc. If you wash your vehicle by hand, make sure that the insides of the wheel housings are also thoroughly rinsed out. Clean edges and folds on opened doors and the bonnet as well as the areas they cover. Caution Always use a cleaning agent with a pH value of 4 to 9. Do not use cleaning agents on hot surfaces. Have the door hinges of all doors greased by a workshop. Do not clean the engine compartment with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner. 155 Thoroughly rinse and leather-off the vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use separate leathers for painted and glass surfaces: remnants of wax on the windows will impair vision. Exterior lights Headlight and other light covers are made of plastic. Do not use any abrasive or caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper, and do not clean them dry. Polishing and waxing Wax the vehicle regularly (at the latest when water no longer beads). Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out. Polishing is necessary only if the paint has become dull or if solid deposits have become attached to it. Paintwork polish with silicone forms a protective film, making waxing unnecessary. Plastic body parts must not be treated with wax or polishing agents. 156 Vehicle care Windows and windscreen wiper blades Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather together with window cleaner and insect remover. When cleaning the rear window from inside, always wipe in parallel to the heating element to prevent damage. For mechanical removal of ice, use a sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the scraper firmly against the glass so that no dirt can get under it and scratch the glass. Clean smearing wiper blades with a soft cloth and window cleaner. Glass panel Never clean with solvents or abrasive agents, fuels, aggressive media (e.g. paint cleaner, acetone-containing solutions etc.), acidic or highly alkaline media or abrasive pads. Do not apply wax or polishing agents to the glass panel. Wheels and tyres Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners. Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel cleaner. Rims are painted and can be treated with the same agents as the body. Paintwork damage Rectify minor paintwork damage with a touch-up pen before rust forms. Have more extensive damage or rust areas repaired by a workshop. Underbody Some areas of the vehicle underbody have a PVC undercoating while other critical areas have a durable protective wax coating. After the underbody is washed, check the underbody and have it waxed if necessary. Bitumen/rubber materials could damage the PVC coating. Have underbody work carried out by a workshop. Before and after winter, wash the underbody and have the protective wax coating checked. Natural gas system Do not direct the steam jet or highpressure jet towards natural gas system components. It is particularly important to protect the natural gas tank and the pressure valves on the vehicle underbody and the bulkhead in the engine compartment. These components must not be treated using chemical cleaners or preservatives. Have components of the natural gas system cleaned by a workshop authorised to carry out maintenance of natural gas vehicles. Towing equipment Do not clean the coupling ball bar with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner. Interior care Interior and upholstery Only clean the vehicle interior, including the instrument panel fascia and panelling, with a dry cloth or interior cleaner. Vehicle care Clean the leather upholstery with clear water and a soft cloth. In case of heavy soiling, use leather care. The instrument cluster and the displays should only be cleaned using a soft damp cloth. If necessary, use a weak soap solution. Clean fabric upholstery with a vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove stains with an upholstery cleaner. Clothing fabrics may not be colourfast. This could cause visible discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable stains and discolourations should be cleaned as soon as possible. Clean seat belts with lukewarm water or interior cleaner. Caution Close Velcro fasteners as open Velcro fasteners on clothing could damage seat upholstery. The same applies to clothing with sharp-edged objects, like zips or belts or studded jeans. Plastic and rubber parts Plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with the same cleaner as used to clean the body. Use interior cleaner if necessary. Do not use any other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners. 157 158 Service and maintenance Service and maintenance General information ................... 158 Recommended fluids, lubricants and parts .................................... 159 General information Service information In order to ensure economical and safe vehicle operation and to maintain the value of your vehicle, it is of vital importance that all maintenance work is carried out at the proper intervals as specified. The detailed, up-to-date service schedule for your vehicle is available at the workshop. Service display 3 70. Service intervals - petrol and CNG engines Maintenance of your vehicle is required every 18,000 miles or 2 years, whichever occurs first. Service intervals - diesel engines Maintenance of your vehicle is required every 21,000 miles or 2 years, whichever occurs first, unless otherwise indicated in the Driver Information Centre. Confirmations Confirmation of service is recorded in the Service and Warranty Booklet. The date and mileage is completed with the stamp and signature of the servicing workshop. Make sure that the Service and Warranty Booklet is completed correctly as continuous proof of service is essential if any warranty or goodwill claims are to be met, and is also a benefit when selling the vehicle. Service interval with remaining engine oil life duration The service interval is based on several parameters depending on usage. When the engine oil requires changing, control indicator I will flash in conjunction with a message in the Driver Information Centre 3 77. Service display 3 70. Service and maintenance Recommended fluids, lubricants and parts Recommended fluids and lubricants Only use products that meet the recommended specifications. Damage resulting from the use of products not in line with these specifications will not be covered by the warranty. 9 Warning Operating materials are hazardous and could be poisonous. Handle with care. Pay attention to information given on the containers. Engine oil Engine oil is identified by its quality and its viscosity. Quality is more important than viscosity when selecting which engine oil to use. The oil quality ensures e.g. engine cleanliness, wear protection and oil ageing control, whereas viscosity grade gives information on the oil's thickness over a temperature range. Dexos is the newest engine oil quality that provides optimum protection for petrol and diesel engines. If it is unavailable, engine oils of other listed qualities must be used. Recommendations for petrol engines are also valid for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuelled engines. Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and viscosity 3 162. Topping up engine oil Engine oils of different manufacturers and brands can be mixed as long as they comply with the required engine oil quality and viscosity. Use of engine oil with only ACEA A1/B1 or only A5/B5 quality is prohibited, since it can cause longterm engine damage under certain operating conditions. Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and viscosity 3 162. 159 Additional engine oil additives The use of additional engine oil additives could cause damage and invalidate the warranty. Engine oil viscosity The SAE viscosity grade gives information on the thickness of the oil. Multigrade oil is indicated by two figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first figure, followed by a W, indicates the low temperature viscosity and the second figure the high temperature viscosity. Select the appropriate viscosity grade 3 162. All of the recommended viscosity grades are suitable for high ambient temperatures. Coolant and antifreeze Use only antifreeze approved for the vehicle. Consult a workshop. The system is factory filled with coolant designed for excellent corrosion protection and frost protection down to approx. -28 °C. In northern countries with very low 160 Service and maintenance temperatures the factory filled coolant provides frost protection down to approx. -37°C. This concentration should be maintained all year round. The use of additional coolant additives that intend to give additional corrosion protection or seal against minor leaks can cause function problems. Liability for consequences resulting from the use of additional coolant additives will be rejected. Brake and clutch fluid Only use high-performance DOT 4+ brake fluid approved for the vehicle. Consult a workshop. Over time, brake fluid absorbs moisture which will reduce braking effectiveness. The brake fluid should therefore be replaced at the specified interval. Brake fluid should be stored in a sealed container to avoid water absorption. Ensure brake fluid does not become contaminated.

Customer information Customer information Vehicle data recording and pri‐ vacy ........................................... 177 Vehicle data recording and privacy Event data recorders Data storage modules in the vehicle A large number of electronic components of your vehicle contain data storage modules temporarily or permanently storing technical data about the condition of the vehicle, events and errors. In general, this technical information documents the condition of parts, modules, systems or the environment: ■ Operating conditions of system components (e.g. filling levels) ■ Status messages of the vehicle and its single components (e.g. number of wheel revolutions / rotational speed, deceleration, lateral acceleration) ■ Dysfunctions and defects in important system components 177 ■ Vehicle reactions in particular driving situations (e.g. inflation of an airbag, activation of the stability regulation system) ■ Environmental conditions (e.g. temperature) This data is exclusively technical and helps identifying and correcting errors as well as optimizing vehicle functions. Motion profiles indicating travelled routes cannot be created with this data. If services are used (e.g. repair works, service processes, warranty cases, quality assurance), employees of the service network (manufacturer included) are able to read out this technical information from the event and error data storage modules applying special diagnostic devices. If required, you will receive further information at these workshops. After an error has been corrected, the data is deleted from the error storage module or it is constantly overwritten. 178 Customer information When using the vehicle, situations may occur in which technical data related to other information (accident report, damages on the vehicle, witness statements etc.) may be associated with a specific person possibly, with the assistance of an expert. Additional functions contractually agreed upon with the client (e.g. vehicle location in emergency cases) allow the transmission of particular vehicle data from the vehicle. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) RFID technology is used in some vehicles for functions such as ignition system security. It is also used in connection with conveniences such as radio remote controls for door locking/unlocking and starting, and invehicle transmitters for garage door openers. RFID technology in Vauxhall vehicles does not use or record personal information or link with any other Vauxhall system containing personal information.
