FRONT SEAT SAFETY

Make sure you have read and fully understood the following warnings before adjusting either of the front seats. Failure to observe cautions and warnings may result in vehicle damage, injury, or DEATH in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Do not adjust a seat while the vehicle is moving. Doing so could cause a loss of vehicle control, leading to an accident.

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 present a risk of injury. Always stop the vehicle before retrieving items.

WARNING

Riding with a reclined seatback increases the chance of serious or fatal injuries in the event of a collision or sudden stop. Reclining the seat greatly reduces the protection of the restraint system, i.e., the seat belts and airbags. Seat belts must be snug against the hips and chest to work properly. The more the seatback is reclined, the greater the chance of an occupant’s hips sliding under the lap section of the seat belt. The occupant’s neck could also strike the shoulder belt. Drivers and passengers should always sit well back in the seat, be properly belted, and have the seatbacks in an upright position.

WARNING

Never adjust the driver’s seat while the vehicle is moving. Any sudden or unexpected movement of the seat could cause a loss of vehicle control, potentially resulting in an accident.

WARNING

Make sure that the area immediately surrounding the seat is clear of obstructions before activating the seat memory feature. All occupants should be clear of moving parts to avoid personal injury.

NOTES

Before attempting to perform any repairs on a vehicle, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
