Airbag System
Your vehicle has an airbag for the driver and an
airbag for the right front passenger.
Airbags are designed to supplement the protection
provided by safety belts. Even though today?s
airbags are also designed to help reduce the risk
of injury from the force of an in?ating bag, all
airbags must in?ate very quickly to do their job.
Here are the most important things to know about
the airbag system:
{CAUTION:
You can be severely injured or killed in a
crash if you are not wearing your safety
belt ? even if you have airbags. Wearing
your safety belt during a crash helps
reduce your chance of hitting things
CAUTION: (Continued)
CAUTION: (Continued)
inside the vehicle or being ejected from it.
Airbags are ?supplemental restraints? to
the safety belts. All airbags are designed
to work with safety belts, but do not
replace them.
{CAUTION:
Airbags are designed to deploy in
moderate to severe frontal and near
frontal crashes. They are not designed to
in?ate in rollover, rear crashes, or in many
side crashes. And, for some unrestrained
occupants, airbags may provide less
protection in frontal crashes than more
forceful airbags have provided in the past.
Everyone in your vehicle should wear a
safety belt properly ? whether or not
there is an airbag for that person.
