Seat adjustmentSeat adjustment  - Seats and seat belts - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

Adjust the driver’s seat so that you are comfortable and that you can reach the pedals, steering wheel, switches etc. while retaining a clear field of vision.


(1) If required, always adjust the seating before the vehicle is in motion. After adjustments are made, ensure the seating is locked in position by attempting to move the seat and seatback forward and rearward without using the adjusting mechanism.
(2) It is extremely dangerous to ride in the luggage area (inside or outside) of a vehicle. Also, the luggage area and rear seats should never be used as a play area by children. In a collision, people or children riding unrestrained in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Do not allow people or children to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts, and make sure that everyone travelling in your vehicle is in a seat and wearing a seat belt, or in the case of a child is strapped in a child restraint. In the interest of their safety, children should not be allowed to adjust the seats.
(3) To minimize the risk of personal injury in the event of a collision or sudden braking, the seatbacks should always be in the almost upright position while the vehicle is in motion. The protection provided by the seat belts may be reduced significantly when the seatback is reclined. There is greater risk that the passenger will slide under the seat belt, resulting in serious injury, when the seatback is reclined.


(1) Make sure that the seat is adjusted by an adult.
If it is adjusted by a child, an unexpected accident might occur.
(2) Do not place a cushion or the like between your back and the seatback while driving. The effectiveness of the head restraints will be reduced in the event of an accident.
(3) When sliding or reclining the seat rearward, pay careful attention to the rear seat passengers.
