Kia Rio: Special driving conditions / Rocking the vehicle

Kia Rio 2017-2020 YB Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Special driving conditions / Rocking the vehicle

If it is necessary to rock the vehicle to free it from snow, sand, or mud, first turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around your front wheels. Then, shift back and forth between 1st (First) and R (Reverse) in vehicles equipped with a Manual Transmission or R (Reverse) and any forward gear in vehicles equipped with an Intelligent Variable Transmission. Do not race the engine, and spin the wheels as little as possible. If you are still stuck after a few tries, have the vehicle pulled out by a tow vehicle to avoid engine overheating and possible damage to the transmission.

The ESC system should be turned OFF prior to rocking the vehicle.

CAUTION - Vehicle rocking

Prolonged rocking may cause engine overheating, transmission damage or failure, and tire damage.

CAUTION - Spinning tires

Do not spin the wheels, especially at speeds more than 56 km/h (35 mph). Spinning the wheels at high speeds when the vehicle is stationary could cause a tire to overheat which could result in tire damage.

WARNING - Sudden vehicle movement

Do not attempt to rock the vehicle if people or objects are nearby. The vehicle may suddenly move forward or backwards as it becomes unstuck.
