Driving Through Water


  • Drive through water in an emergency only and not as part of normal driving.
  • Engine damage can occur if water enters the air filter.

In an emergency, you can drive your vehicle through water to a maximum depth of 8 inches (200 millimeters) and at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h). You must take extra care when driving through flowing water.

When driving in water, maintain a low speed and do not stop your vehicle. After driving through water and as soon as it is safe to do so:

  • Depress the brake pedal lightly to check that the brakes are functioning correctly.
  • Check that the horn works.
  • Check that your vehicle's lamps are fully operational.
  • Check the power assistance of the steering system.
