c) Mileage before service or oil change.Mileage before service
With the ignition switched on and the engine not running ,
when the message “SERVICE INTERVALS” is displayed, press
button 2 or 3 for around 5 seconds to display the mileage before
the next service, then briefly press button 2 or 3 to view the
mileage before the next oil change (distance or time remaining
before the next service). When the range approaches its limit,
there are several possible scenarios:
– distance/time remaining less than 900 miles (1,500 km) or
one month : the message “Service due” is displayed, accom-
panied by the nearest term (distance or time);
– range equal to 0 km/miles or service date reached: the
message “Service required” is displayed accompanied by
The vehicle requires an oil change as soon as possible.
Oil change in
30 000 Kms / 24 months
Service due in
300 Kms / 24 days
Depending on the vehicle, the mileage before an oil change varies accord\
ing to the driving style (frequent driving at low speed ,
door-to-door journeys, extensive use at idling speed, towing a trailer, etc.). The distance remaining until the next oil change can
therefore decrease more quickly in some cases than the actual distance t\
Resetting: to reset the mileage before the next service, press and hold button 2 or 3 for approximately 10 seconds until the
display shows the mileage before service without flashing.
NB: if a service is performed without changing the engine oil, only the mi\
leage before the next service should be reset. In the
event of an oil change, both the distance before the next service and th\
e next oil change should be reset.

When parking on a slope or towing a
trailer, pull switch 3 for a few seconds
to obtain the maximum braking effect.
To park the vehicle without applying the
electronic parking brake (if there is a
risk of freezing, for example):
– with the engine running and RENAULT card in reader 4, switch
off the engine by pressing engine
Start/Stop button 1;
– select a gear (manual gearbox) or position P (automatic gearbox);
– depress the brake pedal and press switch 3 at the same time;
– remove the RENAULT card from the card reader.
Brief stopTo manually activate the electronic
parking brake, (when stopping at a red
light, or stopping when the engine is
running, etc.): pull and release switch 3.
The brake is released as soon as the
vehicle is started up again.

DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING (3/3)
– An underinflated tyre increases fuel consumption.
– The use of non-recommended tyres can increase fuel consumption.
– In vehicles fitted with air condi-
tioning, it is normal to observe an
increase in fuel consumption (es-
pecially in urban conditions) when
it is used. For vehicles fitted with
manual air conditioning, switch off
the system when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and therefore helping to preserve
If the vehicle has been parked in the
sun, open the doors for a few mo-
ments to let the hot air escape before
starting the engine.
– Do not leave an empty roof rack fitted to the vehicle.
– It is better to fit a trailer for bulky ob- jects.
– When towing a caravan, fit a wind deflector and adjust it carefully.
– Avoid using the car for door-to-door calls (short journeys with long waits
in between) because the engine
never reaches its normal operating
Advice on use
– Electricity is fuel; switch off all the
electrical components which are
not really needed. However (safety
first), keep your lights on when the
visibility is bad (“see and be seen”).
– Use the air vents. Driving with the windows open at 60 mph (100 km/h)
will increase fuel consumption by
– Never fill the fuel tank right to the brim to avoid overflow.

Operating the roof
Before opening/closing the roof, ensure
that the surrounding space is greater
than A and B to allow the roof to op-
A = 1.90 m
B = 40 cm
Never leave your vehicle
with the RENAULT card inside and
never leave a child (or a pet) un-
supervised, even for a short while.
With the card inside, it would be
possible to operate the retractable
glass roof and there is a risk that the
child may be seriously injured (by
trapping their neck, arm, hand, etc.).
If anything is trapped, reverse the
retractable glass roof’s direction of
travel immediately by pressing the
opposite side of the roof open/close

TYRE PRESSURE (1/2)
Open the door to read it.
Tyre pressures should be checked
when the tyres are cold.
If the tyre pressures cannot be checked
when the tyres are cold, increase the
pressures from 0.2 to 0.3 bar (or 3 PSI).
Never deflate a hot tyre. Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure
If under-inflated (puncture, low pres-
sure, etc.), the warning light
lights up on the instrument panel;
please refer to “Tyre pressure loss
warning” or “Tyre pressure monitoring
system” in Section 2.
Special note concerning fully laden
vehicles (Maximum Permissible All-Up
Weight) and towing a trailer: the maxi-
mum speed must be limited to 60 mph
(100 kph) and the tyre pressure in-
creased by 0.2 bar.
Please refer to the information on
“Weights” in Section 6. Tyre safety and use of snow chains:

cle lights can be used (indicators, brake
lights etc.). At night the vehicle must
have its lights on.
Once you have finished towing, press
the engine start button twice (risk of
running down the battery). The speed specified by current legisla-
tion for towing must always be obser-
ved. If your vehicle is the towing vehi-
cle, do not exceed the maximum towing
weight for your vehicle (refer to the in-
formation on “Weights” in Section 6).

mission is no longer lubricated. It is pre-
ferable to tow this type of vehicle on a
trailer or tow it with the front wheels off
Under exceptional circumstances,
you may tow the vehicle with all four
wheels on the ground, only going
forward, with the gear lever in the N po-
sition, and for a distance not exceeding
50 miles (80 km).
If the lever is stuck in P ,
even though you are de-
pressing the brake pedal,
the lever can be released
manually. To do this, insert a rigid
