REAR SEAT SAFETY

WARNING

Always make sure that objects carried in the vehicle are secured properly. Unsecured items can cause death or serious injury in the event of an impact or sudden manoeuvre.

WARNING

Never allow passengers to travel in the luggage compartment under any circumstances. All vehicle occupants should be seated correctly and must wear a seat belt at all times when the vehicle is in motion. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death in the event of a collision.

WARNING

Make sure the locking mechanism is fully engaged when the seatback is raised. An unsecured seatback may not properly support an occupant during a collision or sudden manoeuvre.

WARNING

Make sure the seat belts are correctly routed and not trapped behind the seats when raising the rear seatbacks. An incorrectly routed seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.

WARNING

Make sure the head restraints are raised to the correct position before the seats are used by a passenger. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision.

WARNING

Always take note of the safety warnings and labels attached to the rear seats. The labels give advice on safely folding and raising the rear seats. Failure to follow the advice could lead to personal injury.

WARNING

Take care when retrieving items that have fallen down the side, back, front, or underneath the seat. Sharp objects may be present in these areas, which could cause injury. Always stop the vehicle before retrieving items.
