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 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:

  • Continuous driving at temperatures below -30 °C or above +40 °C.

  • Driving on rough and/or muddy roads.

  • Frequent wading and/or driving on mud, snow and rocks.

  • Frequent trailer towing.

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

  • Continuous driving in mountainous conditions.

  • Continuous operation under dusty or sandy conditions.

Contact a retailer/authorised repairer for advice.
