Seat Adjustment and Head Restraints
The seat may move unexpectedly if you attempt to adjust while driving. This could cause sudden loss of control, resulting in serious personal injury or death.
Safety belts only offer protection when the backrest is upright and the belts are properly positioned on the body.
Improperly positioned safety belts or safety belts worn by passengers in an excessively reclined position can cause serious personal injury or death in an accident.
Risk of injury if persons or animals are in the movement range of the seat during seat adjustment.
Risk of damage to windshield, sun visor, etc. when the seat is adjusted or folded back or forward.
The driver and passenger seats provide integrated head restraints in the backrests. The head restraints are not adjustable.
All occupants, including the driver, should not operate a vehicle or sit in a vehicle's seat until the head restraints and backrests, respectively, are placed in their proper positions so that the risk of neck injuries is minimized in the event of a crash.
For proper positioning of the head restraint, the seatback's inclination should be adjusted such that the head restraint is in an upright position. Driver and passenger should be seated upright and in the center of their seats.
An ergonomically correct sitting position is important for safe and fatigue-free driving.
We recommend the following procedure for adjusting the driver's seat to suit individual requirements:
