Driving hints

Control of the vehicle

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 3 127.

Pedals

To ensure the pedal travel is

uninhibited, there must be no mats in

the area of the pedals.
Use only floor mats, which fit properly

and are fixed by the retainers on the

driver side.

Steering

If power steering assist is lost

because the engine stops or due to a

system malfunction, the vehicle can

be steered but may require increased

effort.
Control indicator c 3 86.

Caution

Vehicles equipped with hydraulic

power steering:
If the steering wheel is turned until

it reaches the end of its travel, and

is held in that position for more

than 10 seconds, damage may

occur to the power steering

system and there may be loss of

power steering assist.

Starting and operating

New vehicle running-in

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 3 130.

ignition off

2 : ignition on, for diesel engine:

preheating

3 : starting

Starting the engine

Manual transmission: operate clutch.
Automatic transmission: operate

brake and move the selector lever to

P or N.
Do not operate the accelerator pedal.
Diesel engine: turn the key to position

2 for preheating until control

indicator ! extinguishes.
Turn the key briefly to position 3 and

release: an automatic procedure

operates the starter with a short delay

as long as the engine is running, see

'Automatic Starter Control'.

Before restarting or to switch off the

engine, turn the key back to position

0.
During an Autostop, the engine can

be started by depressing the clutch

pedal.

Key lock release

Some vehicles with an automatic

transmission are equipped with an

electronic key lock release system.

The key lock release is designed to

prevent ignition key removal unless

the selector lever is in P.

Starting the vehicle at low

temperatures

Starting 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. With

temperatures below -30 °C the

automatic transmission requires a

warming phase of approx. 5 minutes.

The selector lever must be in position

P.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Driving and operating

127

Automatic Starter Control

This function controls the engine

starting procedure. The driver does

not need to hold the key in position 3.

Once applied, the system will go on

starting automatically until the engine

is running. Because of the checking

procedure, the engine starts running

after a short delay.
Possible reasons for a non-starting

engine:

● clutch pedal not operated

(manual transmission)

● brake pedal not operated or

selector lever not in P or N

(automatic transmission)

● timeout occurred

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.

Overrun cut-off

The fuel supply is automatically cut off

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 the 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.

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 Ï.

Deactivation is indicated when the

LED in the button extinguishes.

Autostop

If the vehicle is at a low speed or at a

standstill, activate an Autostop as

follows:

● Depress the clutch pedal.
● Move the selector lever to

neutral.

● Release the clutch pedal.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

128

Driving and operating

The engine will be switched off while

the ignition stays on.

An Autostop is indicated by the

needle at the AUTOSTOP position in

the tachometer.
During an Autostop, the heating

performance, power steering and

brake performance will be

maintained.

Conditions for an Autostop

The stop-start system checks if each

of the following conditions is fulfilled:

● The stop-start system is not

manually deactivated.

● The bonnet is fully closed.

● The driver's door is closed or the

driver's seat belt is fastened.

● The vehicle 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.

● The ambient temperature is

above -5 °C.

● The climate control system

allows an Autostop.

● The brake vacuum is sufficient.
● The self-cleaning function of the

diesel particle filter is not active.

● The vehicle was driven at least at

walking speed since the last

Autostop.

Otherwise an Autostop will be

inhibited.
Certain settings of the climate control

system may inhibit an Autostop. See

Climate control chapter for more

details 3 118.

Immediately after motorway driving

an Autostop may be inhibited.
New vehicle running-in 3 125.

Vehicle battery discharge protection

To ensure reliable engine restarts,

several battery discharge protection

features are implemented as part of

the stop-start system.

Power saving measures

During an Autostop, several electrical

features such as auxiliary electric

heater or rear window heating are

disabled or switched into a power

saving mode. The fan speed of the

climate control system is reduced to

save power.

Restart of the engine by the driver

Depress the clutch pedal to restart the

engine.
The engine start is indicated by the

needle at the idle speed position in

the tachometer.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Driving and operating

129

If the selector lever is shifted out of

neutral before depressing the clutch

first, control indicator - illuminates

or is shown as a message in the

Driver Information Centre.
Control indicator - 3 85.

Restart of the engine by the stop-

start system

The selector lever must be in neutral

to enable an automatic restart.
If one of the following conditions

occurs during an Autostop, the

engine will be restarted automatically

by the stop-start system:

● The stop-start system is

manually deactivated.

● The bonnet is opened.
● The driver's seat belt is

unfastened and the driver's door

is opened.

● The engine temperature is too

low.

● The charging level of the vehicle

battery is below a defined level.

● The brake vacuum is not

sufficient.

● The vehicle is driven at least at

walking speed.

● The climate control system

requests an engine start.

● The air conditioning is manually

switched on.

If the bonnet is not fully closed, a

warning message is displayed in the

Driver Information Centre.
If an electrical accessory, e.g. a

portable CD player, is connected to

the power outlet, a brief power drop

during engine restart might be

noticeable.

Parking

9 Warning

● Do not park the vehicle on an

easily ignitable surface. The

high temperature of the

exhaust system could ignite the

surface.

● Always apply the parking

brake. Activate the parking

brake without pressing the

release button. Apply as firmly

as possible on a downhill slope

or uphill slope. Depress brake

pedal at the same time to

reduce operating force.

● Switch off the engine.
● If the vehicle is on a level

surface or uphill slope, engage

first gear or set the selector

lever to position P before

removing the ignition key. On

an uphill slope, turn the front

wheels away from the kerb.
If the vehicle is on a downhill

slope, engage reverse gear or

set the selector lever to position

P before removing the ignition

key. Turn the front wheels

towards the kerb.

● Close the windows and the

sunroof.

● Remove the ignition key from

the ignition switch. For vehicles

with automatic transmission,

the key can only be removed

when the selector lever is in

position P.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

130

Driving and operating

Turn the steering wheel until

the steering wheel lock is felt to

engage.

● Lock the vehicle.
● Activate the anti-theft alarm

system.

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 between 7 and 12 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 cleaning of the filter is required and

if previous driving conditions did not

enable automatic cleaning, it will be

indicated by control indicator %.
%

 illuminates when diesel particle

filter is full. Start cleaning process as

soon as possible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Driving and operating

%

 flashes when diesel particle filter

has reached the maximum filling

level. Start cleaning process

immediately to avoid damage to the

engine.

Cleaning process

To activate cleaning process,

continue driving, keep engine speed

above 2000 revolutions per minute.

Shift down if necessary. Diesel

particle filter cleaning is then started.
If control indicator g also

illuminates, cleaning is not possible:

seek the assistance of a workshop.

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.
The 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 1523 213 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.

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.

Automatic transmission

The automatic transmission permits

automatic gearshifting (automatic
