How do I open the hood?

The latch for releasing the hood is located under the steering wheel, near the instrument column.

Pull the latch until you hear the hood release. This latch will unhook the hood, but won’t open it. After the latch has been pulled, go to the front of the vehicle and reach under the hood until you locate the safety latch, which is front and center under the hood. Release the latch by pushing it from right to left, and then you can open the hood fully.
