Driving safety and protection against injury cannot be fully ensured. However, we recommend that you pay extra attention to the following:

Seat belts

Before starting the vehicle, make sure that you and your passengers have fastened your seat belts.

Floor mats

WARNING:

WARNING:
● Keep floor mats clear of the pedals by correctly laying floor mats that are suitable for the vehicle. To prevent the floor mats from slipping out position, securely retain them using the hook etc. Note that laying a floor mat over a pedal or laying one floor mat on top of another can obstruct pedal operation and lead to a serious accident.

Carrying children in the vehicle


● Never leave your vehicle unattended with the key and children inside the vehicle. Children may play with the driving controls and this could lead to an accident.
● Make sure that infants and small children are properly restrained in accordance with the laws and regulations, and for maximum protection in case of an accident.
● Prevent children from playing in the luggage compartment. It is quite dangerous to allow them to play there while the vehicle is moving.
