Changing gears once twice may be normal. What if Nissan Lovers had to constantly change gears in the middle of congestion? It must be exhausting. This is where the comfort of a matic car uses automatic transmission for gear shifting. Drivers simply use gas and brakes, no longer bothered with clutches, gases and gear sticks. When you’re a beginner who chooses to drive in a matic car, here are automotive tips that will enhance the comfort of Nissan Lovers.
READ THE MANUAL
Every purchase of Nissan’s new car must come with an informative and easy-to-understand manual. Like when holding a key in hand, don’t rush to operate it. Open your manual first, then read it carefully.
REMEMBER THE POSITION AND CODE OF THE GEAR STICK
Unlike manual cars full of numbers, matic cars use the following code:
P (Parking): the car is in parking condition.
R (Reverse): the car runs backwards.
N (Neutral): no teeth.
D (Drive): the car goes ahead.
Study the code carefully. But you need to remember, it could be that you find additional codes 1, 2, and 3 in addition to the above. This addition is used for special conditions such as uphill roads or requires more speed than regular acceleration.
STARTING FROM P OR N
Get used to starting a matic car from P or N to prevent collisions due to cars moving suddenly. Get used to stepping on the brakes before moving the gear stick to the “D” position. This habit is important to do in order to avoid collisions due to cars speeding suddenly. Check gears if the car does not want to be turned on, as some types of cars cannot be turned on if the gears are not in this position.
FREE THE LEFT LEG
Free your left foot, do not use it to step on the brakes. Feeling when stepping on with your left foot and right foot is very different. The left foot is accustomed to stepping on the clutch as deeply, certainly in contrast to the right foot that is accustomed to stepping on the brakes as necessary.
DISCARD BRAKE PERCEPTION EQUAL TO CLUTCH
For some people have a perception that usually regards the brakes as a clutch. So the brakes are trampled slowly when stepping on the gas. This wrong habit is sure to speed up the damage to the gearbox.
SAVE MONEY WITH ECO MODE
Eco Mode buttons like the one on the Nissan Teana are not merely ornaments. For fuel efficiency and effectiveness as well as engine performance, make sure you press this button while driving.
What do you think? It’s not hard to maintain comfort when driving a matic car? Most importantly pay attention and do the above tips constantly to build good driving habits. When you see friends and family doing things that don’t work on your car, remind them of those tips.
