Hyundai Santa Fe: Seats / Safety precautions

Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Seats & Safety System / Seats / Safety precautions

Adjusting the seats so that you are sitting in a safe and comfortable position plays an important role for the safety of the driver and passengers, along with seat belts and air bags when in an accident.

WARNING

Do not use a cushion that reduces friction between the seat and the passenger. The passenger’s hips may slide under the lap portion of the seat belt during an accident or a sudden stop.

Serious or fatal internal injuries could result because the seat belt cannot operate properly.

Air bags

You can take steps to reduce the risk of being injured by an inflating air bag. Sitting too close to an air bag greatly increases the risk of injury in the event the air bag inflates.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25cm) between the center of the steering wheel and their chest.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating air bag, take the following precautions:

  • Adjust the driver’s seat as far to the rear as possible while maintaining the ability to control the vehicle.
  • Adjust the front passenger seat as far to the rear as possible.
  • Hold the steering wheel by the rim with your hands at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • NEVER place anything or anyone between you and the air bag.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place feet or legs on the dashboard to minimize the risk of leg injuries.

Seat belts

Always fasten your seat belt before starting any trip. At all times, passengers should sit upright and be properly restrained. Infants and small children must be restrained in appropriate Child Restraint Systems. Children who have outgrown a booster seat and adults must be restrained using the seat belts.

WARNING

Take the following precautions when adjusting your seat belt:

  • NEVER use one seat belt for more than one occupant.
  • Always position the seatback upright with the lap portion of the seat belt snug and low across the hips.
  • NEVER allow children or small infants to ride on a passenger’s lap.
  • Do not route the seat belt across your neck, across sharp edges, or reroute the shoulder strap away from your body.
  • Do not allow the seat belt to become caught or jammed.
