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

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

The front seat belts have pre–tensioners. These belts are used the same way as conventional seat belts.

Refer to “Seat belt with pre–tensioner mechanism and force–limiter mechanism” on page 3–14.

WARNING

(1) Never wear the shoulder portion of the seat belt under the arm or other position which is incorrect.
(2) One seat belt should be used by only one person. Doing otherwise can be dangerous.
(3) The seat belt will provide its wearer with maximum protection if the seatback recliner 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.
(4) 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.
(5) Remove any twists when using the belt.
(6) 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.

WARNING

WARNING

(7) To reduce risk of serious or fatal injury in an accident, including from a deploying driver air bag, the driver should adjust the driver’s seat to the rear most position that still allows good visibility and good control of the steering wheel, the brake and accelerator, and vehicle controls.
(8) 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.
(9) Always adjust the belt to a snug fit.
