Always drive and ride with your seatback upright and the lap belt snug and low across the hips.
Children must always be properly restrained.
Never let a passenger hold a child on his or her lap while the vehicle is moving. The passenger cannot protect the child from injury in a crash.
All occupants of your vehicle, including the driver, should always properly wear their seatbelts, even when an airbag supplemental restraint system is provided. Failure to properly wear your seatbelt could seriously increase the risk of injury or death.
It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a crash, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seatbelts. Make sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and properly using a seatbelt. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious personal injury or death.
In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seatbelt.
Each seating position in your vehicle has a specific seatbelt assembly made up of one buckle and one tongue designed to be used as a pair. Use the shoulder belt on the outside shoulder only. Never wear the shoulder belt under the arm. Never use a single seatbelt for more than one person.
Airbags can kill or injure a child in a child restraint. Properly restrain children 12 and under in the rear seat whenever possible.
Seatbelts and seats may be hot in a vehicle that is in the sunshine. The hot seatbelts or seats may burn a small child. Check seat covers and buckles before you place a child anywhere near them.
The center of the rear seat is not designed as a seating position and is not equipped with seatbelts. The LATCH anchors were not designed to be used with a child restraint in the center position and there is no tether anchor available at the center. Do not attempt to use the center as a seating position as this will increase the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash.
All seating positions in your vehicle have lap and shoulder seatbelts. All occupants of the vehicle should always properly wear their seatbelts, even when an airbag supplemental restraint system is provided.
The seatbelt system consists of:
- Lap and shoulder seatbelts.
- Seatbelt pretensioner at the front outboard seating positions.
- Belt tension sensor at the front outboard passenger seating position.
· Seatbelt warning light and chime.||
· Crash sensors and monitoring system with readiness indicator.|
The seatbelt pretensioners at the front seating positions are designed to tighten the seatbelts when activated. In frontal and near-frontal crashes, the seatbelt pretensioners may be activated alone or, if the crash is of sufficient severity, together with the front airbags. The pretensioners may also activate in side impacts and rollovers.
