• Avoid operating the vehicle with the rear side door, tailgate or rear window open. If it is necessary to operate the vehicle with the rear side door, tailgate or rear window open, make sure the folding sunroof (if equipped) and all the windows are closed, and the fan is at high speed with the air intake selector set to “FRESH AIR”.
• To allow proper operation of your vehicle’s ventilation system, keep the air inlet grille in front of the windshield clear of snow, leaves or other obstructions at all times.
• Keep the exhaust tailpipe area clear of snow and other material to help reduce the buildup of exhaust gases under the vehicle. This is particularly important when parked in blizzard conditions.
• Have the exhaust system inspected periodically for damage and leaks. Any damage or leaks should be repaired immediately.
