HEAD RESTRAINTS SAFETY

Make sure to read and fully understand the relevant warnings before using any of the features in this section. Failure to observe warnings and cautions may result in vehicle damage, injury, or DEATH in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Head restraints are designed to support the head, not the back of the neck. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision. An incorrectly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.

WARNING

While stationary, adjust the head restraint so that the top of the head restraint is above the centerline of the head. An incorrectly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.

WARNING

Do not drive or carry passengers with the head restraints removed from occupied seats. The absence of a correctly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of neck injury in the event of a collision.

WARNING

Never adjust the head restraints while the vehicle is in motion. Doing so could potentially cause a loss of vehicle control and personal injury.

WARNING

Always store a removed head restraint securely. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could potentially cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

All head restraints must be reinstalled to properly protect vehicle occupants.

NOTES

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