- Depress the brake pedal firmly.
- Apply the parking brake.
- Move the shift lever to R or 1.
- Keep idling the engine for about 10 seconds.
- Turn off the engine.
Always set the parking brake firmly, in particular if you are parked on an incline.
In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from moving. If you do not take either precaution, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.
The engine idling may be prohibited in some countries. Check and follow your local legal requirements.
