Reduced Braking Efficiency
After a long drive over salted or gritted roads, a coating may form on the brake disks and pads that significantly reduces friction and therefore also braking effect.
For information on brake fluid and checking the brake fluid level:
New brake pads or linings
New brake pads have to be "broken in", and therefore only attain optimal friction when the car has covered several hundred miles or km.
The slightly reduced braking ability must be compensated for by pressing the brake pedal harder. This applies whenever the brake pads and/or brake disks are replaced.
A - Switch cruise control on/off
1 - Set/increase desired speed
2 - Reduce desired speed
3 - Interrupt (OFF)
4 - Return to set speed (RESUME)
Cruise control maintains any selected speed between approx. 20–150 mph (30–240 km/h) without you having to use the accelerator.
Cruise control is operated using the control stalk at the bottom left of the steering wheel.
