If your vehicle goes off the edge of the pavement

If your vehicle goes off the edge of the pavement  - Driving on slippery surfaces with AWD vehicles - All-wheel drive (awd) system (if equipped) - Driving - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

Х If your vehicle goes off the edge of the pavement, slow down, but avoid severe brake application, ease the vehicle back onto the pavement only after reducing your speed. Do not turn the steering wheel too sharply while returning to the road surface.

Х It may be safer to stay on the apron or shoulder of the road and slow down gradually before returning to the pavement. You may lose control if you do not slow down or if you turn the steering wheel too sharply or abruptly.

Х It often may be less risky to strike small objects, such as highway reflectors, with minor damage to your vehicle rather than attempt a sudden return to the pavement which could cause the vehicle to slide sideways out of control or rollover. Remember, your safety and the safety of others should be your primary concern.
