Vehicle handling instructions

As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate this vehicle correctly may result in loss of control, an accident or vehicle rollover.

Specific design characteristics (higher ground clearance, track, etc.) give this vehicle a higher center of gravity than other types of vehicles. In other words they are not designed for cornering at the same speeds as conventional 2-wheel drive vehicles.

Avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers.

Again, failure to operate this vehicle correctly may result in loss of control, an accident or vehicle rollover. Be sure to read the “onpavement” and “off-road” driving
guidelines, in section 5 of this manual.
