Before Getting In

- Inspect inflation pressures and condition of tires.

- Look under the vehicle for any sign of fluid leaks.

- If you plan to back up, make sure nothing is in your way.

NOTE:
Engine oil, engine coolant, brake/clutch fluid, washer fluid, and other fluid levels should be inspected. See Maintenance, Section 8.
