  • Х Never adjust the driver's seat when the vehicle is moving - this could lead to an accident.
  • Х Be careful when adjusting the seat height. Careless or uncontrolled use of the seat adjustment can cause injuries.
  • Х Do not drive with the backrests of the front seats reclined too far as otherwise the seat belt and airbag could fail to restrain the wearer properly in an accident, possibly leading to injury.
