Safety precautions when driving (cid:132) Seatbelt and SRS airbag

(cid:121) All persons in the vehicle should fasten their seatbelts BEFORE the vehicle starts to move. Otherwise, the possibility of serious injury becomes greater in the event of a sudden stop or accident.

(cid:121) To obtain maximum protection in the event of an accident, the driv- er and all passengers in the vehi- cle should always wear seatbelts when the vehicle is moving. The SRS (Supplemental Restraint Sys- tem) airbag does not do away with the need to fasten seatbelts. In combination with the seatbelts, it offers the best combined protec- tion in case of a serious accident. Not wearing a seatbelt increases the chance of severe injury or death in a crash even when the ve- hicle has the SRS airbag.

(cid:121) The SRS airbags deploy with con- siderable speed and force. Occu- pants who are out of proper posi- tion when the SRS airbag deploys could suffer very serious injuries. Because the SRS airbag needs enough space for deployment, the driver should always sit upright and well back in the seat as far from the steering wheel as practi- cal while still maintaining full ve- hicle control and the front passen- ger should move the seat as far back as possible and sit upright and well back in the seat.

Carefully read the sections “Seat, seatbelt and SRS airbags” in chapter 1 of this own- er’s manual for instructions and precau- tions concerning the seatbelt system and SRS airbag system.

(cid:132) Child safety

(cid:121) Never hold a child on your lap or in your arms while the vehicle is moving. The passenger cannot protect the child from injury in a collision, because the child will be caught between the passenger and objects inside the vehicle.

(cid:121) While riding in the vehicle, infants and small children should always be placed in one of the rear seat- ing positions recommended in this owner’s manual in an infant or child restraint system which is appropriate for the child’s age, height and weight. If a child is too big for a child restraint system, the child should sit in a REAR seat and be restrained using the seat- belts. According to accident sta- tistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating positions. Never allow a child to stand up or kneel on the seat.

(cid:121) Put children aged 12 and under in a REAR seat properly restrained at all times in a child restraint de- vice or in a seatbelt. The SRS air- bag deploys with considerable speed and force and can injure or even kill children, especially if they are 12 years of age and under and are not restrained or improp- erly restrained. Because children are than adults, their risk of being injured from deployment is greater.

lighter and weaker

(cid:121) NEVER INSTALL A REARWARD FACING CHILD SAFETY SEAT IN THE FRONT SEAT. DOING SO RISKS SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO THE CHILD BY PLAC- ING THE CHILD’S HEAD TOO CLOSE TO THE SRS AIRBAG.

(cid:121) Always use the child safety locks whenever a child rides in the rear. Serious injury could result if a child accidentally opened the door and fell out. Refer to the “Door locks” section in chapter 2.

5

(cid:121) Always lock the passenger’s win- dows using the lock switch when children are riding in the vehicle. Failure to follow this procedure could result in injury to a child op- erating the power window. Refer to the “Power windows” section in chapter 2.

(cid:121) Never leave unattended children in the vehicle. They could acci- dentally injure themselves or oth- ers through inadvertent operation of the vehicle. Also, on hot or sun- ny days, temperature in a closed vehicle could quickly become high enough to cause severe or possibly fatal injuries to them.

Carefully read the sections “Child restraint systems”, “*SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag)”, and “Seatbelts” in chapter 1 of this owner’s manual for in- structions and precautions concerning the child restraint system, seatbelt system and SRS airbag system.

(cid:132) Engine exhaust gas (carbon

monoxide)

(cid:121) Never inhale engine exhaust gas. Engine exhaust gas contains car- bon monoxide, a colorless and odorless gas which is dangerous, or even lethal, if inhaled.

(cid:121) Always properly maintain the en- gine exhaust system to prevent engine exhaust gas from entering the vehicle.

(cid:121) Never run the engine in a closed space, such as a garage, except for the brief time needed to drive the vehicle in or out of it.

(cid:121) Avoid remaining in a parked vehi- cle for a lengthy time while the en- gine is running. If that is unavoid- able, then use the ventilation fan to force fresh air into the vehicle. (cid:121) Always keep the front ventilator inlet grille free from snow, leaves or other obstructions to ensure that the ventilation system always works properly.

(cid:121) If at any time you suspect that ex- haust fumes are entering the vehi- cle, have the problem checked and corrected as soon as possi- ble. If you must drive under these conditions, drive only with all win- dows fully open.

(cid:121) Keep the rear gate closed while driving to prevent exhaust gas from entering the vehicle.

(cid:132) Drinking and driving

Drinking and then driving is very dangerous. Alcohol in the blood- stream delays your reaction and im- pairs your perception, judgment and attentiveness. If you drive after drinking – even if you drink just a lit- tle – it will increase the risk of being involved in a serious or fatal acci- dent, injuring or killing yourself, your passengers and others. In ad- dition, if you are injured in the acci- dent, alcohol may increase the se- verity of that injury. Please don’t drink and drive. Drunken driving is one of the most fre-

quent causes of accidents. Since alcohol affects all people differently, you may have consumed too much alcohol to drive safely even if the level of alcohol in your blood is below the legal limit. The safest thing you can do is never drink and drive.
