How do I open the hood?

It’s very easy to open the hood, and only takes a few steps: 1. Pull the Hood Release lever, which is located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel. 2. From the front of the vehicle, locate the auxiliary latch under the hood, near the center of the vehicle. 3. Pull this latch to fully release the hood. 4. Lift the hood all the way up. 5. Hold the hood in place with the hood stand.
