Shallow Standing Water

Although your vehicle is capable of driving through shallow standing water, consider the following Caution and Warning before doing so.

 Always check the depth of the standing water before driving through it. CAUTION!

Always check the depth of the standing water before driving through it. Never drive through standing water that is deeper than the bottom of the tire rims mounted on the vehicle.
Determine the condition of the road or the path that is under water and if there are any obstacles in the way before driving through the standing water.
Do not exceed 5 mph (8 km/h) when driving through standing water. This will minimize wave effects.
Driving through standing water may cause damage to your vehicles drivetrain components. Always inspect your vehicles fluids (i.e., engine oil, transmission, axle, etc.) for signs of contamination (i.e., fluid that is milky or foamy in appearance) after driving through standing water. Do not continue to operate the vehicle if any fluid appears contaminated, as this may result in further damage.
Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Getting water inside your vehicles engine can cause it to lock up and stall out, and cause serious internal damage to the engine. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

 Driving through standing water limits your vehicles traction capabilities. WARNING!

Driving through standing water limits your vehicles traction capabilities. Do not exceed 5 mph (8 km/h) when driving through standing water.
Driving through standing water limits your vehicles braking capabilities, which increases stopping distances. Therefore, after driving through standing water, drive slowly and lightly press on the brake pedal several times to dry the brakes.
Getting water inside your vehicles engine can cause it to lock up and stall out, and leave you stranded.
Failure to follow these warnings may result in injuries that are serious or fatal to you, your passengers, and others around you.
