Mitsubishi Lancer: Gearshift lever positions (Manual shift gate). Caution Caution

► Never shift into the P (PARK) or R (REVERSE) position while the vehicle is in motion to avoid transmission damage.

N NEUTRAL

At this position the transmission is disengaged. It is the same as the neutral position on a M/T, and should only be used when the vehicle is stationary for an extended length of time during driving, such as in a traffic jam.

Mitsubishi Lancer: Gearshift lever positions (Manual shift gate). Warning Warning

► Never move the gearshift lever to the N (NEUTRAL) position while driving. A serious accident could occur since you could accidentally move the lever into the P (PARK) or R (REVERSE) position or you will lose engine braking.
► On a gradient the engine should be started in the P (PARK) position. Although the engine can be started when the vehicle is in the N (NEUTRAL) position if the brake pedal is depressed, for safety reasons, do not start the engine in the N (NEUTRAL) position.
► Always keep your right foot on the brake pedal when shifting into or out of N (NEUTRAL), to minimize the risk of loss of control.

D DRIVE

This position is for normal driving. The transmission automatically selects a suitable gear ratio for your speed and acceleration.

Engine braking is automatically applied when necessary, depending on road conditions.

Mitsubishi Lancer: Gearshift lever positions (Manual shift gate). Caution Caution

► Never shift into the D (DRIVE) position from the R (REVERSE) position while the vehicle is in motion to avoid transmission damage.
