2014 NISSAN Consumer Safety & Air Bag Information Guide 14
For the seat belt to be most effective when the vehicle is in motion, the seatback should be
upright. Do not ride in a moving vehicle when the seatback is reclined. This can be
dangerous, as the shoulder belt will not be against your body. In a collision, you could be
thrown into it and receive neck or other serious injuries. You could also slide under the lap
belt and receive serious internal injuries. Always sit well back in the seat with both feet on
the floor and adjust the seat belt properly.
OTHER SPECIFICS ABOUT SEAT BELTS
ƒ Do not wear the seat belt inside out or twisted.
ƒ Do not allow more than one person to use the same seat belt.
ƒ Never carry more people in the vehicle than there are seat belts.
ƒ If the seat belt warning light illuminates continuously while the ignition is turned ON with
all doors closed and all seat belts fastened, it may indicate a malfunction in the system;
have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer.
ƒ See the vehicle owner’s manual for more detailed information to help you better
understand the important safety warnings, system features, operation and maintenance
of your vehicle’s seat belts.
CONCERN FOR YOUR SAFETY
NISSAN urges you to always use your available seat belt restraint system whenever you
drive, even if your vehicle is equipped with supplemental air bags. Please ask all of your
passengers to buckle up too. For children, make sure they are properly secured in an
appropriate child restraint or booster seat.* Seat belts do save lives. See the vehicle
owner’s manual for details.
