—Rear seat precautions

CAUTION.

Do not adjust the seat while the vehicle is moving.

Be careful that the seat does not hit a passenger or luggage.

Be careful not to get your hands or feet pinched in the seat.

Split seat—After adjusting the seat position, release the lever and try sliding the seat forward and backward to make sure it is locked in position.

After adjusting the seatback, push your body back against the seat to make sure the seat is locked in position.

When returning the seatback to the upright position, observe the following precautions in order to prevent personal injury in a collision or sudden stop: Make sure the seatback is securely locked by pushing forward and rearward on the top of the seatback.

Failure to do so will prevent the seat belt from operating properly.

Make sure the seat belts are not twisted or caught in the seatback and are arranged in their proper position and are ready to use.

Folding down the rear seatbacks will enlarge the luggage compartment. See “—Stowage precautions” for precautions when loading luggage.

1. SEATBACK ANGLE ADJUSTING LEVER

Pull the lever up. Then lean back to the desired angle and release the lever.

CAUTION.

Do not adjust the seat while the vehicle is moving.

Avoid reclining the seatback any more than needed. The seat belts provide maximum protection in a frontal or rear collision when the passengers are sitting up straight and well back in the seats. If you are reclined, the lap belt may slide past your hips and apply restraint forces directly to the abdomen or your neck may contact the shoulder belt. In the event of a frontal collision, the more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of death or personal injury.

Split seat—After adjusting the seat position, release the lever and try sliding the seat forward and backward to make sure it is locked in position.

After adjusting the seatback, push your body back against the seat to make sure the seat is locked in position.

2. SEAT POSITION ADJUSTING LEVER

Pull the lever up. Then slide the seat to the desired position with slight body pressure and release the lever.
