Off-Road Driving

Off-Road Driving O f f - R o a d D r i v i n g B E F O R E Y O U D R I V E Before venturing off-road, it is absolutely essential that inexperienced drivers become fully familiar with the vehicle's controls, in particular the transfer gearbox, and also study the off-road driving techniques described on this and the following pages.

WARNING Off-road driving can be hazardous!

  • DO NOT take unnecessary risks and be prepared for emergencies at all times.

  • Your Discovery has a higher ground clearance and hence a higher center of gravity than an ordinary passenger car. An abrupt maneuver at an inappropriate speed or on an unstable surface could cause the vehicle to go out of control or rollover.

  • Familiarize yourself with the recommended driving techniques in order to reduce risks to yourself, your vehicle AND your passengers.

  • Always ensure that seat belts are worn for personal protection while driving on-road or off-road.

  • DO NOT drive off-road alone or without letting someone know where you are going and when you plan to return.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • DO NOT drive if the fuel level is low - undulating ground and steep inclines could cause fuel starvation to the engine and consequent damage to the catalytic converter.

  • As a precaution against accidental loss, remove the towing eye cover from the front spoiler before driving off-road (see ‘TOWING EYES’, page 216).

  • DO NOT stop the engine while driving through water (wading) - water ingress to the exhaust tailpipe could result in severe damage to the catalytic converter.
