When a vehicle is used in arduous conditions, more frequent attention must be paid to servicing requirements. Even daily attention may be necessary to make sure that continued safe and reliable operation of the vehicle is maintained.

Failure to adhere to the recommended service schedules may result in premature engine wear or damage, and may invalidate the warranty.

Some markets may have unique service requirements. Check with a retailer/authorised repairer or importer.

Arduous operating conditions include:

  • Driving in dusty and/or sandy conditions.

  • Driving on rough and/or muddy roads.

  • Frequent wading.

  • Frequent driving at high speeds in high ambient temperatures above 50°C.

  • Frequent driving in severe cold weather below -40°C.

  • Frequent driving in mountainous conditions.

  • Frequent trailer towing.

  • Driving in areas using road salt or other corrosive materials on the driving surface.

Contact a retailer/authorised repairer for advice.
