OWNER’S HANDBOOK

Publication Part No. LRL 18 02 53 602

Introduction

Congratulations on acquiring your new Land Rover vehicle. We trust that you will enjoy many years of safe, dependable driving.

This handbook forms part of the owner literature supplied with your new vehicle. The first section is for Quick Reference and is designed to aid the initial driver set up and explain some of the unique features. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the equipment descriptions and operating instructions before you drive the vehicle. The more that you understand about your new vehicle, the greater the safety, economy, and pleasure you will derive from driving it.

To include vehicle design changes made after this handbook was printed, it may have been necessary to issue a handbook supplement. Any supplements will be stored in the literature pack. If further updates are required, will be posted on the Land Rover internet site and can be accessed at www.ownerinfo.landrover.com.

Remember to pass on the owner literature when reselling the vehicle. It forms an integral part of the whole vehicle package, and will help to familiarise the new owner with the vehicle.

Important

The information contained in this handbook covers all vehicle derivatives and optional equipment. Some of the options may not be fitted to your vehicle unless they formed part of the original specification. Therefore some information contained in this handbook may not apply to your vehicle. Furthermore, due to printing cycles it may include descriptions of options before they are available.

We operate a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserve the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the Dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the Dealer.

Quick Start

AUTOMATIC MIRROR DIPPING

If your vehicle is fitted with the driver’s seat memory option, the door mirrors may dip when reverse gear is selected. This gives the driver a view of the curbside to aid vehicle positioning when reversing.

The feature is optional and can be adjusted by the user.

For more detailed information on automatic mirror dipping, see Automatic mirror dipping, 69.

RESONANCE WITH LOWERED WINDOWS

If a resonance/booming sound occurs with only the rear windows open, lowering an adjacent front window about 25 mm (1 inch) will greatly reduce the condition. This will change the frequency of the air volume moving in/out of the vehicle and thus lessen or remove the booming sound.

16

Quick Start

OCCUPANT DETECTION

The front passenger seat is equipped with an occupancy sensor which measures the weight on the cushion and changes the passenger airbag status to suit.

The sensor will adjust the passenger airbag status and operate the status indicator as follows:

TIRE PRESSURES

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tires (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). If you have to check warm tires, you should expect the pressures to have increased by between 30 and 40 kPa (0.3 to 0.4 bar) (4 to 6 lbf/in2). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tires in order to match the recommended pressures.

1.From inside the vehicle on the driver’s side, pull the hood release handle.

VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS

Caution: The overall height of your vehicle exceeds that of ordinary passenger cars. See DIMENSIONS, 266. Always be aware of the height of your vehicle and check the available headroom before driving through low entrances. This is particularly important if the vehicle is fitted with a roof rack or if a sunroof is open.

26

General Information

WARNING:

Utility vehicles have a significantly higher roll-over rate than other types of vehicles. Since these vehicles are designed to be operated off-road, these vehicles have a higher ground clearance and hence a higher center of gravity. Such a feature has been associated with an increased risk of vehicle roll-over. An advantage associated with higher ground clearance vehicles is a better view of the road, allowing the driver to anticipate problems. Another factor shown to significantly increase roll-over risk is unauthorized vehicle modifications such as fitting incorrect specification tires (see WHEELS AND TIRES, 264), oversize tires, body lifting, incorrect springs/dampers, incorrect vehicle loading/trailer towing. However, on-road crash data also indicates that driver behaviour is a greater factor than a high center of gravity in determining a vehicle's overall roll-over rate. The single most effective driver behaviour that can reduce the risk of injury or death in all crashes including roll-over, is to ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT and to properly restrain all child passengers in the rear seat in an appropriate child safety seat. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt.

The vehicle is not designed for cornering at the same speed as conventional passenger cars any more than a low-slung sports car is designed to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvers. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the vehicle correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover.

DATA RECORDING

Event data recording

Event data recorders are capable of collecting and storing data during a crash or near-crash event. The recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event. The modules may record information about both the vehicle and the occupants, potentially including information such as:

How various systems in your vehicle were operating.

Whether or not the driver and passenger seat belts were buckled.

How far, if at all, the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the brake pedal.

How fast the vehicle was travelling.

Where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

To access this information special equipment must be connected directly to the recording modules. Land Rover do not access event data recorder information without obtaining consent, unless pursuant to court order or where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or third parties acting with lawful authority.

Other parties may seek to access the information independently of Land Rover.

FRONT SEATS

WARNING:

DO NOT adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion. To do so may cause loss of loss of control and personal injury.

Sitting correctly

The seats, head restraints, seat belts and airbags all contribute to the protection of the occupants. Optimal use of these components will give you more protection. Therefore, observe the following points:

Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the backrest not reclined more than 30 degrees (A).

Do not move the drivers seat too close to the steering wheel. Ideally a minimum distance (B) of at least 254 mm (10 in) between the center of the breastbone and the cover of the steering wheel air bag is recommended. The driver should hold the steering wheel with slightly bent arms. The legs should also be slightly bent so that the pedals can be pressed to the floor.

The seat belt should rest in the center of the shoulder. The lap part should fit tightly across the hips and not on the stomach.

Make sure your driving position is comfortable and enables you to maintain full control of the vehicle. A properly adjusted seat helps reduce the risk of injury from sitting too close to an inflating airbag.

Note: For information on adjusting the steering column, see STEERING WHEEL ADJUSTMENT, 67.

A

B

H6615N

WARNING:

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt with the seat back angle set to no more than 30 degrees from the upright (vertical).
