Honda CR-V: Carrying Cargo in the Passenger Compartment - Carrying Cargo - Before Driving - Honda CR-V Owner's ManualHonda CR-V: Carrying Cargo in the Passenger Compartment

Store or secure all items that could be thrown around and hurt someone during a crash.

Be sure items placed on the floor behind the front seats cannot roll underneath and interfere with the proper operation of the seats, the sensors under the seats, or the driver’s ability to operate the pedals.

Keep the lower glove box closed while driving. If it is open, a passenger could injure their knees during a crash or sudden stop.

If you fold the rear seats up or down, tie down items that could be thrown about the vehicle during a crash or sudden stop. Also, keep all cargo below the bottom of the windows. If it is higher, it could interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags.

If equipped

Do not use the dual deck cargo shelf with any rear seat folded up or down.
