Seat adjustment
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 too reclined, 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.

Check that the seat belts are not twisted or caught in the seatback.
