WARNING

When folding the rear seatbacks down

Observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

  • Do not fold the seatbacks down while driving.
  • Stop the vehicle on level ground, set the parking brake and shift the shift lever to P.
  • Do not allow anyone to sit on a folded seatback or in the luggage compartment while driving.
  • Do not allow children to enter the luggage compartment.
  • Be careful not to get any part of your body pinched by a seat.

Seat adjustment

  • Be careful that the seat does not hit passengers or luggage.
  • To reduce the risk of sliding under the lap belt during a collision, do not recline the seat more than necessary.

    If the seat is reclined too far, the lap belt may slide past the hips and apply restraint forces directly to the abdomen, or your neck may contact the shoulder belt, increasing the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.

    Adjustments should not be made while driving as the seat may unexpectedly move and cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

After returning the rear seatbacks or installing seats

Observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

  • Make sure the seatback is securely locked by pushing it forward and rearward on the top.
  • Check that the seat belts are not twisted or caught in the seatback.
  • Make sure the seat is locked in place by trying to shake the seatback and lift up the seat cushion.

Removing the second seats

  • Do not leave a seat in the vehicle if it has been disengaged from the floor.
  • Do not sit on or place anything on a seat that has been removed from the vehicle.

Stowing the third seats

  • Make sure that the seat path is clear before moving the seat. Otherwise, injury may result from contact with, or by being pinched by parts of the seat.
  • Manual third seats: Do not sit on the third seat when it is in the stowed position with the seatback upright.
  • Power third seats: Do not continue the stowing operation when the indicator above the stowing switch and returning switch comes on or flashes. An object or a person may be caught in the seat.
  • Power third seats: During the stowing operation, to prevent the vehicle from moving, do not shift the shift lever out of P with the engine switch in the “ON” position (vehicles without a smart key system) or IGNITION ON mode (vehicles with a smart key system).

When adjusting the seat position or the ottoman (vehicles with Ottoman seats)

Make sure to leave enough space around the feet so as not to get them caught.

When using the ottoman (vehicles with Ottoman seats)

  • Do not sit on the ottoman. Seat belts may not be properly worn which may result in death or serious injury.
  • Stow the ottoman when you get in and out of the vehicle or when the ottoman is not in use to avoid stumbling over it.
  • Do not use the ottoman feature when the vehicle is in motion. The ottoman feature should only be used when the vehicle is stationary. If the ottoman feature is in use during an accident the lap belt may slide past the hips.

    This could also result in restraint forces being applied to the abdomen or your neck may contact the shoulder belt, increasing the risk of death or serious injury.

To prevent damage to the seat

  • Avoid putting heavy loads on a folded seat that is being used as a temporary table.
  • Do not sit on or put heavy loads on a second seat that has been removed from the vehicle. The metal tips of the seat leg may be damaged, preventing reinstallation of the seat.
  • The second seats must be reinstalled in their original positions. If they are installed in the wrong position, the seat locks or bezels will be damaged.
  • Make sure that the path the seat will move through is clear before stowing or returning the third seat.
  • 8-passenger models: Be sure to raise the stowed second center seat above the outer trim, when removing from the storage box of the luggage room.

Stowing the seat belt

The seat belts and the buckles must be stowed before you fold down the rear seatbacks.

To prevent an ottoman malfunction (vehicles with Ottoman seats)

  • Do not place any objects in the second passenger footwell that could prevent the operation of the ottoman.
  • Do not place heavy luggage on the ottoman.
  • Do not place anything under the ottoman when in use. There is a possibility that something may get caught and cause damage when stowing the ottoman.
