• Always use recommended anti-freeze agents in cooling system to avoid deterioration of engine components due to corrosion. After filling coolant, fit radiator cap firmly, to keep cooling system pressurized.
  • Maintain correct tyre pressure to ensure better tyre life.
  • Always fit genuine radiator cap for pressurized cooling system.
  • Avoid mixing of different grade of lubricant or brake fluids during top up.
