Driving Tips

3-46

WARNING

Never stop the engine when going
down a hill:

Stopping the engine when going down
a hill is dangerous. This causes the loss
of power steering and power brake
control, and may cause damage to the
drivetrain. Any loss of steering or
braking control could cause an
accident.

Hazardous Driving

Hazardous Driving

WARNING

Be extremely careful if it is necessary
to downshift on slippery surfaces:

Downshifting into lower gear while
driving on slippery surfaces is
dangerous. The sudden change in tire
speed could cause the tires to skid.
This could lead to loss of vehicle
control and an accident.

When driving on ice or in water, snow,
mud, sand, or similar hazards:

x

Be cautious and allow extra distance
for braking.

x

Avoid sudden braking and sudden
maneuvering.

x

Do not pump the brakes. Continue
to press down on the brake pedal.
Refer to Antilock Brake System (ABS)
on page 4-88.

x

If you get stuck, select a lower gear
and accelerate slowly. Do not spin
the front wheels.

x

For more traction in starting on
slippery surfaces such as ice or
packed snow, use sand, rock salt,
chains, carpeting, or other nonslip
material under the front wheels.

NOTE

Use snow chains only on the front
wheels.

Before Driving

Driving Tips

Floor Mat

Floor Mat

We recommend the use of Genuine
Mazda floor mats.

WARNING

Make sure the floor mats are hooked
on the retention pins to prevent them
from bunching up under the foot
pedals:

Using a floor mat that is not secured is
dangerous as it will interfere with the
accelerator and brake pedal operation,
which could result in an accident.

Do not install two floor mats, one on
top of the other, on the driver's side:

Installing two floor mats, one on top of
the other, on the driver's side is
dangerous as the retention pins can
only keep one floor mat from sliding
forward.
Loose floor mat(s) will interfere with
the foot pedals and could result in an
accident.
If using an all-weather mat for winter
use always remove the original floor
mat.

When setting a floor mat, position the
floor mat so that its grommets are
inserted over the pointed end of the
retention posts.

Rocking the Vehicle

Rocking the Vehicle

WARNING

Do not spin the wheels at more than
56 km/h (35 mph), and do not allow
anyone to stand behind a wheel when
pushing the vehicle:

When the vehicle is stuck, spinning the
wheels at high speed is dangerous. The
spinning tire could overheat and
explode. This could cause serious
injuries.

CAUTION

Too much rocking may cause engine
overheating, transmission failure, and
tire damage.

If you must rock the vehicle to free it
from snow, sand or mud, depress the
accelerator slightly and slowly move
the shift lever/selector lever from 1 (D)
to R position.

Winter Driving

Winter Driving

Carry emergency gear, including tire
chains, window scraper, flares, a small
shovel, jumper cables, and a small bag
of sand or salt.
Ask an Authorized Mazda Dealer to
check the following:

x

Have the proper ratio of antifreeze in
the radiator.
Refer to Engine Coolant on page
6-19.

x

Inspect the battery and its cables.
Cold reduces battery capacity.

x

Use an engine oil appropriate for the
lowest ambient temperatures that
the vehicle will be driven in (page
6-16).

x

Inspect the ignition system for
damage and loose connections.

x

Use washer fluid made with
antifreeze

ʊ

but do not use engine

coolant antifreeze for washer fluid
(page 6-21).

NOTE

x

Remove snow before driving. Snow
left on the windshield is dangerous
as it could obstruct vision.

x

Do not apply excessive force to a
window scraper when removing ice
or frozen snow on the mirror glass
and windshield.

x

Never use warm or hot water for
removing snow or ice from windows
and mirrors as it could result in the
glass cracking.

x

Drive slowly. Braking performance
can be adversely affected if snow or
ice adheres to the brake
components. If this situation occurs,
drive the vehicle slowly, releasing the
accelerator pedal and lightly applying
the brakes several times until the
brake performance returns to
normal.

Snow Tires

Use snow tires on all 4 wheels

Do not go faster than 120 km/h (75
mph) while driving with snow tires.
Inflate snow tires 30 kPa (0.3 kgf/cm

2

,

4.3 psi) more than recommended on
the tire pressure label (driver's door
frame), but never more than the
maximum cold-tire pressure shown on
the tires.

Mexico

The vehicle is originally equipped with
summer tires designed for optimum
traction on wet and dry roads. If your
vehicle is to be used on snow and ice
covered roads, Mazda recommends
that you replace the tires originally
equipped on your vehicle with snow
tires during the winter months.

Except Mexico

The vehicle is originally equipped with
all season radials designed to be used
all year around. In some extreme
climates you may find it necessary to
replace them with snow tires during
the winter months to further improve
traction on snow and ice covered
roads.

Before Driving

Driving Tips

3-49

WARNING

Use only the same size and type tires

mph) or the chain manufacturer's
recommended limit, whichever is
lower.

¾

Drive carefully and avoid bumps,
holes, and sharp turns.

¾

Avoid locked-wheel braking.

¾

Do not use chains on a temporary
spare tire; it may result in damage to
the vehicle and to the tire.

¾

Do not use chains on roads that are
free of snow or ice. The tires and
chains could be damaged.

¾

Chains may scratch or chip
aluminum wheels.
