FOLDING THE REAR SEATS

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 maneuver.

WARNING

Never allow passengers to travel in the loadspace under any circumstances. In a collision, people riding in this area are more likely to be seriously injured or killed.

WARNING

Make sure the locking mechanism is fully engaged when the seatback is raised. During an accident or sudden maneuver an unsecured seatback could cause an injury to the seat occupant.

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

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.

CAUTION

To prevent damage when folding a rear seat, make sure the seat belt buckle is correctly stored and that the seatback is free from obstruction.
