Seatbelt - putting on

Updated 7/23/2018

Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure that all passengers are using their seatbelts during the journey.

Put on the seatbelt before driving starts.

Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by pressing its locking tab into the seatbelt buckle. A loud "click" indicates that the belt has locked.

The locking tab at the centre rear seat only fits into the intended seatbelt buckle.

Remember

          

The seatbelt locks and cannot be withdrawn:

  • if it is pulled out too quickly
  • during braking and acceleration
  • if the car leans heavily.
