Jeep Liberty: Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC) - Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) — Air Bags - Occupant Restraints - Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle - Jeep Liberty Owner's ManualJeep Liberty: Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC)

SABIC air bags may offer side-impact and vehicle rollover protection to front and rear seat outboard occupants in addition to that provided by the body structure. Each air bag features inflated chambers placed adjacent to the head of each outboard occupant that reduce the potential for side-impact head injuries. The SABIC air bags deploy downward, covering both windows on the impact side.

NOTE:
• Should a vehicle rollover occur, the pretensioners and/or SABIC air bags on both sides of the vehicle may deploy.

• Air Bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment.

• Being too close to the side air bags during deployment could cause you to be severely injured or killed.

The system includes side impact sensors that are calibrated to deploy the side air bags during impacts that require side air bag occupant protection.

WARNING!
• If your vehicle is equipped with left and right Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC), do not stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block the location of the SABIC.

The area where the SABIC is located should remain free from any obstructions.

• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the side air bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed into you, causing serious injury.

• If your vehicle is equipped with SABIC air bags, do not have any accessory items installed which will alter the roof, including adding a sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks that require permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the vehicle roof. Do not drill into the roof of the vehicle for any reason.
