• to enable you to deal quickly with minor faults not requiring specialist attention.
It is well worth taking a few minutes to read this manual to familiarise yourself with the information and guidelines it
contains about the vehicle and its innovative features. If certain points are still unclear, the technicians in our Network will
be only too pleased to provide you with any additional information you may require.
