The gear change lever

The gear change lever is located on a floor of the car and can be established in seven positions.

Р – parking (parking),

R – a reverse gear,

N – neutral position,

D – advance (automatic change of transfers from 1st to 3 and back),
2 – automatic change only two first transfers,

The gear change also occurs automatically in process of reduction of speed of movement.
