Push the "P" position switch with the brake pedal pressed down.
The "P" position icon is displayed on the instrument cluster, and the indicator on the "P" position switch comes on.
You can only shift to other positions from "P" when the brake pedal is depressed.
When parking, check that the "P" position icon is displayed on the instrument cluster, and release the brake pedal gently after applying the parking brake.
n Using engine brake
To use the engine braking, shift the shift lever to "B" position.
l During high speed driving, you may feel that deceleration by engine braking is less than that of a typical vehicle.
l Do not continue normal driving with the transmission in "B" for a long time.
This may cause decreased fuel economy. To prevent this, use "D" for normal driving.
