Passenger Folding Seatback
The front passenger’s seatback may fold
flat.
WARNING
If you fold the seatback forward to
carry longer objects, such as skis, be
sure any such cargo is not near an
airbag. In a crash, an inflating airbag
might force that object toward a per-
son. This could cause severe injury
or even death. Secure objects away
from the area in which an airbag
would inflate. For more information,

WARNING
Things you put on this seatback can

stop or turn, or in a crash. Remove or
secure all items before driving.
To fold the seatback, do the following:
1) Lower the head restraint all the way.
2) Lift the bar under the front of the seat to
unlock it. Slide the seat as far back as it
will go and release the bar. Try to move
the seat back and forth to make sure it

you are belted.
Question:
If my vehicle has airbags, why should I
have to wear safety belts?
Answer:
Airbags are supplemental systems only; so
they work with safety belts - not instead of
them. Every airbag system ever offered for
sale has required the use of safety belts.
Even if you are in a vehicle that has air-
bags, you still have to buckle up to get the
most protection. That is true not only in
frontal collisions, but especially in side and
