Subaru Crosstrek Owners Manual: Parking in cold weather

WARNING

Snow can trap dangerous exhaust gases under your vehicle. Keep snow clear of the exhaust pipe and from around your vehicle if you park the vehicle in snow with the engine running.

CAUTION

Do not use the parking brake when parking for long periods in cold weather since it could freeze in that position.

When the vehicle is parked in snow or when it snows, raise the wiper blades off the glass to prevent damage to them

Under either of the following conditions, ice may form on the brake system, which could cause poor braking action.

Check for snow or ice buildup on the suspension, disc brakes and brake hoses underneath the vehicle.

If there is caked snow or ice, remove it, being careful not to damage the disc brakes and brake hoses and ABS harness.

When parking for long periods in cold weather, you should observe the following tips.

1. For MT models, place the shift lever in the "1" or "R" position. For CVT models, place the select lever in the "P" position.

2. Use tire stops under the tires to prevent the vehicle from moving.
