The fact that the safety belt pretensioners or airbags did not activate for
both front seat occupants in a collision does not mean that something is

• Front airbags are designed to activate only in frontal and near-frontal
collisions (not rollovers, side impacts or rear impacts) unless the
collision causes sufficient longitudinal deceleration.
• The safety belt pretensioners and rear inflatable safety belts are
designed to activate in frontal, near-frontal and side collisions, and in
• Side airbags are designed to inflate in side-impact collisions, not
rollovers, rear impacts, frontal or near-frontal collisions, unless the
collision causes sufficient lateral deceleration.
• The Safety Canopy is designed to inflate in certain side impact
collisions or rollover events, not in rear impact, frontal or near-frontal
collisions, unless the collision causes sufficient lateral deceleration or
