Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual / In Brief / Initial Drive Information

This section provides a brief overview about some of the important features that may or may not be on your specific vehicle.

For more detailed information, refer to each of the features which can be found later in this owner manual.

When taking your Chevrolet Captiva 1-st generation for its initial drive, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with the essential features to ensure a comfortable and safe experience. Start with seat adjustment: adjust the seat height, backrest angle, and lumbar support to find your ideal driving position. This ensures you have a clear view of the road and can reach the pedals and steering wheel comfortably. Proper seat adjustment not only enhances comfort but also contributes to better control over the vehicle.

Also, it's important to consider a few key aspects to ensure a smooth and safe experience. During the initial 500 miles (800 kilometers), it's crucial to avoid heavy acceleration, high speeds, and towing heavy loads. This break-in period allows the engine components to settle and wear in properly, enhancing the longevity and performance of the engine. Additionally, the transmission may take some time to adapt to your driving style, so smooth, gradual acceleration and deceleration will help the transmission learn and adjust for optimal performance.
