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

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 the risk of injury from a deploying side airbag. 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 the seats with side airbags. They 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. 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.
► When loading luggage, do not stack it near the side windows. They could interfere with proper curtain airbag inflation.
► 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 lean against or be close to the area where the side airbag and curtain airbag are located.
It is dangerous if the side airbag and curtain airbag 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.
