AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT EFFECTS

WARNING

Make sure to read and fully understand the relevant warnings before using any of the features in this section. See AIRBAG SAFETY.

Warning: When the airbag inflates:

WARNING

A fine powder is released. The powder may cause irritation to the skin and should be thoroughly flushed from eyes and any cuts or abrasions. The powder can also cause breathing difficulty for people who suffer from asthma or other respiratory problems.

WARNING

A loud noise is emitted. The noise may cause temporary discomfort and loss of hearing.

WARNING

Some airbag components become very hot. Do not touch the airbag components until they have cooled sufficiently.

If any of these problems occur, get out of the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. If breathing problems persist, seek medical attention.

After inflation, the front and seat mounted side airbags deflate immediately. Deflation provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupants and also makes sure the driver’s forward vision is not obscured.
