Tip Of The Day! – Freeing A Stuck Vehicle
- If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a rocking motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front wheels. Then, move the shift lever back and forth between REVERSE and DRIVE. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
Note:If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or Traction Control, turn the system off before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
