  1. Keep idling the engine for about 10 seconds.
All models
  1. Turn off the engine.

Always set the parking brake firmly, in particular if you are parked on an incline.

In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from moving. If you do not take either precaution, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.

Diesel models
The engine idling may be prohibited in some countries. Check and follow your local legal requirements.
