  • Make sure that the trunk lid is fully closed. If the trunk lid is not fully closed, it may open unexpectedly while driving and hit near-by objects or luggage in the trunk may be thrown out, causing an accident.
  • Do not allow children to play in the trunk.

    If a child is accidentally locked in the trunk, they could suffer from heat exhaustion, suffocation or other injuries.

  • Do not allow a child to open or close the trunk lid.

    Doing so may cause the trunk lid to open unexpectedly, or cause the child's hands, head, or neck to be caught by the closing trunk lid.

■Important points while driving Never let anyone sit in the trunk. In the event of sudden braking or a collision, they are susceptible to death or serious injury.

 

WARNING

■Using the trunk Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may cause parts of the body to be caught, resulting in serious injury.

  • Remove any heavy loads, such as snow and ice, from the trunk lid before opening it. Failure to do so may cause the trunk lid to suddenly shut again after it is opened.
  • When opening or closing the trunk lid, thoroughly check to make sure the surrounding area is safe.
  • If anyone is in the vicinity, make sure they are safe and let them know that the trunk is about to open or close.
  • Use caution when opening or closing the trunk lid in windy weather as it may move abruptly in strong wind.
  • On an incline it is more difficult to open or close the trunk lid than on a level surface, so beware of the trunk lid unexpectedly opening or closing by itself. Make sure that the trunk lid is fully open and secure before using the trunk.
  • When opening the trunk lid, take care so that it does not hit anyone in the face or any other part of the body.

Opening, closing and locking the doors
