Subaru Crosstrek Owners Manual: During driving

General precautions:

Precautions when driving under especially dangerous situations:

If driving through water, such as when crossing shallow streams:

Water entering the engine air intake or the exhaust pipe or water splashing onto electrical parts may damage your vehicle and may cause it to stall. Never drive through rushing water. Regardless of its depth, it can wash away the ground from under your tires, resulting in possible loss of traction and even vehicle rollover.

If you must rock the vehicle to free it from sand or mud, depress the accelerator pedal slightly and move the shift lever/ select lever back and forth between "1"/ "D" and "R" repeatedly. Do not race the engine. For the best possible traction, avoid spinning the wheels when trying to free the vehicle.

When the road surface is extremely slippery, you can obtain better traction by starting the vehicle with the transmission in 2nd than 1st (both for MTand CVT). For CVT models, refer to "Selection of manual mode" F7-26.
