Adjusting the Seats

Front Seats

Adjust the driver’s seat as far back as possible 
while allowing you to maintain full control of 
the vehicle. You should be able to sit upright, 
well back in the seat and be able to 
adequately press the pedals without leaning 
forward, and grip the steering wheel 
comfortably. The passenger’s seat should be 
adjusted in a similar manner, so that it is as far 
back from the front airbag in the dashboard 
as possible.

1

Adjusting the Seats

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
and Transport Canada recommend that drivers allow 
at least 10 inches (25 cm) between the center of the 
steering wheel and the chest.

Always make seat adjustments before driving.

3

WARNING

Sitting too close to a front airbag can result 
in serious injury or death if the front 
airbags inflate.

Always sit as far back from the front 
airbags as possible while maintaining 
control of the vehicle.

Move back.

Allow sufficient 
space.

Front Seats

Co
ntrols

Adjust the driver’s seat-back to a comfortable, 
upright position, leaving ample space 
between your chest and the airbag cover in 
the center of the steering wheel.

The front seat passenger should also adjust 
their seat-back to a comfortable, upright 
position.

Reclining a seat-back so that the shoulder part of the belt no longer rests against the 
occupant’s chest reduces the protective capability of the belt. It also increases the 
chance of sliding under the belt in a crash and being seriously injured. The farther a 
seat-back is reclined, the greater the risk of injury.

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

1

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

Do not put a cushion, or other object, between the 
seat-back and your back.

Doing so may interfere with proper seat belt or airbag 
operation.

If you cannot get far enough away from the steering 
wheel and still reach the controls, we recommend 
that you investigate whether some type of adaptive 
equipment may help.

3

WARNING

Reclining the seat-back too far can result in 
serious injury or death in a crash.

Adjust the seat-back to an upright position, 
and sit well back in the seat.

Head Restraints

Head Restraints

Your vehicle is equipped with head restraints in all seating positions.

Head restraints are most effective for 
protection against whiplash and other rear-
impact crash injuries when the center of the 
back of the occupant’s head rests against the 
center of the restraint. The tops of the 
occupant’s ears should be level with the 
center height of the restraint.

Outer Head Restraints Positions

Head Restraints

In order for the head restraint system to work 
properly:

Do not hang any items on the head restraints, or 
from the restraint legs.

Do not place any object between an occupant and 
the seat-back.

Install each restraint in its proper location.

3

WARNING

Improperly positioning head restraints 
reduces their effectiveness and increases 
the likelihood of serious injury in a crash.

Make sure head restraints are in place and 
positioned properly before driving.

Position head in the center 
of the head restraint.

restraint up and out.

To reinstall a head restraint:
Insert the legs back in place, then adjust the head restraint to an appropriate height 
while pressing the release button. Pull up on the restraint to make sure it is locked 
in position.

Maintain a Proper Sitting Position

Maintain a Proper Sitting Position

After all occupants have adjusted their seats and head restraints, and put on their 
seat belts, it is very important that they continue to sit upright, well back in their 
seats, with their feet on the floor, until the vehicle is safely parked and the engine is 
off.

Sitting improperly can increase the chance of injury during a crash. For example, if 
an occupant slouches, lies down, turns sideways, sits forward, leans forward or 
sideways, or puts one or both feet up, the chance of injury during a crash is greatly 
increased.

In addition, an occupant who is out of position in the front seat can be seriously or 
fatally injured in a crash by striking interior parts of the vehicle or being struck by an 
inflating front airbag.

WARNING

Sitting improperly or out of position can 
result in serious injury or death in a crash.

Always sit upright, well back in the seat, 
with your feet on the floor.
