1 Stop the engine. Set the parking brake and shift the shift lever to P (automatic transmission or continuously variable transmission) or N (manual transmission).

2 Remove the mud, snow or sand from around the front wheels.

3 Place wood, stones or some other material under the front wheels to help provide traction.

4 Restart the engine.

5 Shift the shift lever to D or R (automatic transmission or continuously variable transmission) or 1 or R (manual transmission) and release the parking brake. Then, while exercising caution, depress the accelerator pedal.

CAUTION

■When attempting to free a stuck vehicle

If you choose to push the vehicle back and forth to free it, make sure the surrounding area is clear to avoid striking other vehicles, objects or people.

The vehicle may also lunge forward or lunge back suddenly as it becomes free. Use extreme caution.

■When shifting the shift lever

Be careful not to shift the shift lever with the accelerator pedal depressed.

This may lead to unexpected rapid acceleration of the vehicle that may cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

NOTICE

■To avoid damaging the transmission and other components

●Avoid spinning the front wheels and depressing the accelerator pedal more than necessary.

●If the vehicle remains stuck even after these procedures are performed, the vehicle may require towing to be freed.
