Seat beltsSeat belts  - Seat and seat belts - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Outlander

To protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident, it is most important that the seat belts be worn correctly While drive.

The front seat belts have a pre-tensioner system. These belts are used the same way as a conventional seat belt.

Refer to “Seat belt pre-tensioner system and force limiter system”.

WARNING:

● Always place the shoulder belt over your shoulder and across your chest. Never put it behind you or under your arm.

● One seat belt should be used by only one person.

Doing otherwise can be dangerous.

● The seat belt will provide its wearer with maximum protection if the recliner seatback is placed in fully upright position. When the seatback is reclined, there is greater risk that the passenger will slide under the belt, especially in a forward impact accident, and may be injured by the belt or by striking the instrument panel or seatbacks.

● Seat belts should always be worn by every adult who drives or rides in this vehicle, and by all children who are large enough to wear seat belts properly.

Other children should always use proper child restraint systems.

● Remove any twists when using the belt.

● No modifications or additions should be made by the user which will either prevent the seat belt adjusting devices from operating to remove slack, or prevent the seat belt assembly from being adjusted to remove slack.

● Never hold a child in your arms or on your lap when riding in this vehicle, even if you are wearing your seat belt. To do so risks severe or fatal injury to your child in a collision or sudden stop.

● Always adjust the belt to a snug fit.

● Always wear the lap portion of the belt over your hips.
