The side airbags and curtain airbags are designed to deploy when the vehicle suffers a moderate-tosevere side impact to the middle of the passenger compartment.

The typical condition is shown in the illustration.

The seat belts in your vehicle are your primary means of protection in a collision.

The seat belts in your vehicle are your primary means of protection in a collision. The SRS side airbags and curtain airbags are designed to provide additional protection. Therefore, for your safety and the safety of all occupants, be sure to always properly wear your seat belts.

The side airbags and curtain airbags MAY NOT DEPLOY when…

With certain types of side collisions, the vehicle’s body structure is designed to absorb the shock to help protect the occupants from harm. (The vehicle body’s side area may deform significantly as it absorbs the impact.) Under such circumstances, the side airbags and curtain airbags may not deploy irrespective of the deformation and damage to the vehicle body. Also, depending on the location of the impact, the side airbags and curtain airbags may not deploy simultaneously.

Examples of some typical conditions are shown in the illustration.

1- Side impacts in an area away from the passenger compartment

2- Motorcycle or other similar small vehicle collides with the side of vehicle
3- Collision with a utility pole, tree or other narrow object

4- Oblique side impacts

5- Vehicle rolls onto its side or roof

Because the side airbags and curtain airbags do not protect the occupant in all types of side collisions, be sure to always properly wear your seat belts.

Because the side airbags and curtain airbags do not protect the occupant in all types of collisions, be sure to always properly wear your seat belts.

• The side airbags and curtain airbags are designed to supplement the driver WARNING

• The side airbags and curtain airbags are designed to supplement the driver and passenger seat belts in certain side impacts.

Seat belts should always be worn properly, and the driver and passenger should sit well back and upright without leaning against the window or door.

• The side airbags and curtain airbags inflate with great force. The driver and passenger should not put their arms out the window, and should not lean against the door, in order to reduce risk of serious or possible fatal injury from the deploying side airbags and curtain airbags.

WARNING

• Do not allow any rear seat occupant to hold onto the seatback of either WARNING

• Do not allow any rear seat occupant to hold onto the seatback of either front seat, in order to reduce risk of injury from the deploying side airbags. Special care should be taken with children.

• Do not place any objects near or in front of the seatback of either front seat. They could interfere with proper side airbag inflation, and also could cause injury if thrown free by side airbag deployment.

• Do not place stickers, labels or additional trim on the seatback of either front seat.

They could interfere with proper side airbag inflation.

• Do not install seat covers on seats with side airbags. Do not re-cover seats that have side airbags. This could interfere with proper side airbag inflation.

• Do not attach a microphone (A) or any other device or object around the part where the curtain airbags (B) activate such as on the windscreen, side door glass, front and rear pillars and roof side or assist grips. When the curtain airbags inflate, the microphone or other device or object will be hurled with great force or the curtain airbags may not activate correctly, resulting in death or serious injury.

WARNING

• Do not put a hanger or any heavy or pointed object on the coat hook. If WARNING

• Do not put a hanger or any heavy or pointed object on the coat hook. If the curtain airbag was activated, any such item could be propelled away with great force and could prevent the curtain airbag from inflating correctly. Hang clothes directly on the coat hook (without using a hanger).

Make sure there are no heavy or sharp objects in the pockets of clothes that you hang on the coat hook.

• Never install a rearward facing child restraint in the front passenger seat. A forward facing child restraint should be used in the rear seat whenever possible. If a forward facing child restraint must be used in the front passenger seat, adjust the seat to the most rearward position, and ensure that the child stays in the child restraint and away from the door.

• Do not allow a child to lean against or close to the front door even if the child is seated in a child restraint system.

The child’s head should also not be leaned against or be close to the area where the side airbags and curtain airbags are located. It is dangerous if the side airbags and curtain airbags inflate.

Failure to follow all of these instructions could lead to serious or fatal injury to the child.

• We recommend work around and on the side airbags and curtain airbags system to be done by a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point.
