Select a shift position appropriate for the driving conditions.
■ Shifting the shift lever
While the engine switch is in the “ON” position, move the shift lever with the brake pedal depressed. When shifting the shift lever between P and D, make sure that the vehicle is completely stopped.

The maximum allowable speeds are as follows.
AI-SHIFT automatically selects the suitable gear according to driver performance and driving conditions. AI-SHIFT automatically operates when the shift lever is in the D position.
