WARNING Before leaving the driver's seat, always switch the ignition off , set the parking brake, and make sure the selector lever is in P (automatic transaxle) or in 1st gear or R (manual transaxle): Leaving the driver's seat without switching the ignition off , setting the parking brake, and shifting the selector lever to P (automatic transaxle) or to 1st gear or R (manual transaxle) is dangerous.
