2007 Volvo V70
Use this position when starting the engine or parking the vehicle.
Never use P while the vehicle is in motion.
The parking brake should also be set whenever the vehicle is parked.
The gear selector is mechanically locked in the P position (SHIFTLOCK). To release the gear
selector from this position, the engine must be running (or the ignition key must be in position II) and
the brake pedal must be depressed.
Never leave the vehicle unattended when the engine is running. If, by mistake, the gear selector is
moved from P, the vehicle may start moving.
Never engage R while the vehicle is moving.
Neutral - no gear engaged. Use the parking brake.
D is the normal driving position and should be used as often as possible to help improve fuel economy.
The vehicle should not be moving when shifting from R to the D position.
