However, in a frontal angle collision, the

air bags and side curtain airbags may

deploys only one time during an accident,
seat belts are needed to restrain occu-
pants from further movements during the
accident.
Therefore, an air bag is NOT a substitute
for seat belts. To maximize your protection,

The front passenger sensing system is
designed to enable the front passenger’s

system has allowed the air bag to be
enabled, the “PASS AIR BAG OFF” indica-

that the side collision is severe enough, it
will trigger the front side air bag, rear side
air bags and side curtain air bag inflators.
The inflators inflate the appropriate air
bags with nitrogen or argon gas. The
inflated air bags provide a cushion for your
head (front air bags and side curtain air
bags only) and upper body. The air bag
inflates and deflates so quickly that you
may not even realize that it has activated.
The air bag will neither hinder your view
nor make it harder to exit the vehicle.
