If driving regularly in dusty conditions, the filter may require replacement more often.
5 Visually inspect brake lines and hoses for, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. Inspect
disc brake pads for wear and discs for surface condition. Inspect drum brake linings/

13 Visually inspect hoses and have them replaced if they are cracked, swollen, or deterio-
rated. Inspect all pipes, fittings, and clamps; replace with genuine parts if needed. To help
ensure correct operation, a pressure test of the cooling system and pressure cap and
cleaning the outside of the radiator and air conditioning condenser is recommended.
14 Make sure the safety belt reminder light and safety belt assemblies are working correctly.
Look for any other loose or damaged safety belt system parts. If you see anything that
might keep a safety belt system from doing its job, have it repaired. Ensure any torn or
frayed safety belts are replaced.
16 Lubricate all key lock cylinders, door hinges and latches, bonnet hinges and latches, and
boot lid hinges and latches. More frequent lubrication may be required when exposed to a

Vehicle Data
Recording and
Privacy
Event Data Recorders
The vehicle has a number of
sophisticated systems that monitor
and control several vehicle data.
Some data may be stored during
regular operation to facilitate repair
of detected malfunctions, other data
is stored only in a crash or near
crash event by systems commonly
called event data recorders (EDR).
The systems may record data about
the condition of the vehicle and how
it was operated.
To read this data special equipment
and access to the vehicle is
required. This will take place when
the vehicle is serviced in a repairer.
Some data is electronically fed into
GM global diagnostic systems.
