If you look in your owner's manual you will be able to locate where to lift your vehicle.
These are the points used whether you are using a floor jack or a hydraulic lift.
Sometimes the lift arms are hard to line up with these spots and then other areas of the vehicle can be used. But only someone who knows where to put the lift should do this, otherwise it can cause damage.
