Never attempt to select Reverse (R) gear when the vehicle is moving forward. Selecting R in these circumstances can lead to serious and costly repairs.

Vehicles with a manual transmission have an automated function which assists the driver when pulling away from a stand still.

When pulling away from a standstill, the engine speed may increase slightly. If the accelerator pedal is pressed further, the engine speed is controlled to an appropriate maximum limit. Normal engine speed control is fully returned to the driver once the pulling away manoeuvre is complete.

To engage Reverse (R) gear, press the clutch pedal and lift up the latch located under the gear knob. Move the gearshift to the top left position.

A gearshift indicator warning lamp illuminates briefly at the recommended (up-shift) gear change point. See GEARSHIFT (GREEN).
