●Do not allow a child to open or close the back door.
Doing so may cause the back door to move unexpectedly, or cause the child’s hands, head, or neck to be caught by the closing back door.

●Use caution when opening or closing the back door in windy weather as it may move abruptly in strong wind.
●The back door may suddenly shut if it is not opened fully.
