How should I manage my cargo?

When carrying cargo, you should place it in the trunk whenever you can. Secure everything in place to prevent it from moving around. Spread any luggage or cargo around evenly to help balance the vehicle. Unload all cargo as soon as you can to gain improved fuel economy. To determine how much cargo you can carry, you must find the exact weight your car can handle and subtract the weight of the occupants.

Tips

  • Never put cargo at the driver’s feet.

  • Don’t put items on the dashboard or the instrument panel.
