Warning:If something is carried on top of the vehicle that is longeror wider than the roof rack-—-likepaneling, plywood, or amattress-—-the wind can catch itwhile the vehicle is being driven. The item being carried could beviolently torn off, and this could cause a collision and damage thevehicle. Never carry something longer or wider than the roof rackon top of the vehicle unless using a GM certified accessorycarrier.

If equipped, the vehicle has a roof rack. For roof racks that do not have crossrailsincluded, GM certified crossrails can be purchased as an accessory. See your dealerfor additional information.

To prevent damage or loss of cargo when driving, check to make sure crossrails andcargo are securely fastened. Loading cargo on the roof rack will make the vehicle'scenter of gravity higher. Avoid high speeds, sudden starts, sharp turns, sudden braking,or abrupt maneuvers; otherwise it may result in loss of control. If driving for along distance, on rough roads, or at high speeds, occasionally stop the vehicle tomake sure the cargoremains in its place. Do not exceed the maximum vehicle capacity when loading thevehicle. For more information on vehicle capacity and loading, seeVehicle Load Limits.
