Front Seats
Slide the seat to where you want it and release the
lever. Try to move the seat with your body to be sure
the seat is locked in place.
Manual Seats
Make sure nothing is in front of or under the seat to
prevent it from releasing or re-locking after adjustment.
{CAUTION:
Reclining Seatbacks
You can lose control of the vehicle if you try to
adjust a manual driver’s seat while the vehicle
is moving. The sudden movement could startle
and confuse you, or make you push a pedal
when you do not want to. Adjust the driver’s
seat only when the vehicle is not moving.

Lift the lever located under
the front of the seat to
unlock it.
To adjust the seatback, turn the knob on the outboard
side of the seatback until the seatback is in the desired
position.

{CAUTION:
Sitting in a reclined position when your vehicle
is in motion can be dangerous. Even if you
buckle up, your safety belts cannot do their
job when you are reclined like this.

The shoulder belt cannot do its job because it
will not be against your body. Instead, it will be
in front of you. In a crash you could go into it,
receiving neck or other injuries.

The lap belt cannot do its job either. In a crash

For proper protection when the vehicle is in
