Nissan Sentra Owners Manual: Parking/parking on hills


WARNING

  • Do not stop or park the vehicle over flammable materials such as dry grass, waste paper or rags. They may ignite and cause a fire.

  • Safe parking procedures require that both the parking brake be set and the transmission placed into P (Park) for CVT models or in an appropriate gear for manual transmission models. Failure to do so could cause the vehicle to move unexpectedly or roll away and result in an accident. Make sure the shift lever has been pushed as far forward as it can go and cannot be moved without depressing the foot brake pedal.

  • Never leave the engine running while the vehicle is unattended.

  • Do not leave children unattended inside the vehicle. They could unknowingly activate switches or controls. Unattended children could become involved in serious accidents.

  1. Firmly apply the parking brake.
  2. Manual transmission models:

Place the shift lever in the R (Reverse) position.

When parking on an uphill grade, place the shift lever in 1st gear.

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models: Move the shift lever into the P (Park) position.

  1. To help prevent the vehicle from rolling into traffic when parked on an incline, it is a good practice to turn the wheels as illustrated.
  1. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position and remove the key.
