Loading

Because roof racks raise the vehicle's center of gravity when loaded, they have a major effect on vehicle handling and steering response.

Therefore, note the following when loading and driving:

▷ Do not exceed the approved roof/axle loads and the approved gross vehicle weight.
▷ Distribute the roof load uniformly.
▷ The roof load should not be too large in area.
▷ Always load the heaviest pieces on the bottom.
▷ Fasten roof-mounted cargo correctly and
securely.
▷ Do not let objects project into the opening path of the tailgate.
▷ Drive smoothly. Avoid sudden acceleration and braking maneuvers. Take corners gently.
