Hyundai Santa Fe: Seat belts / Seat belt safety precautions

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

Always fasten your seat belt and make sure all passengers have fastened their seat belts before starting any trip. Air bags are designed to supplement the seat belt as an additional safety device, but they are not a substitute. Most states require all occupants of a vehicle to wear seat belts.

WARNING

Seat belts must be used by ALL passengers whenever the vehicle is moving. Take the following precautions when adjusting and wearing seat belts:

  • Children under the age of 13 should be properly restrained in the rear seats.
  • Never allow children to ride in the front passenger seat, unless the air bag is deactivated. If a child is seated in the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible. And the child must always be restrained in the seat properly.
  • NEVER allow an infant or child to be carried on an occupant’s lap.
  • NEVER ride with the seatback reclined when the vehicle is moving.
  • Do not allow children to share a seat or seat belt.
  • Do not wear the shoulder belt under your arm or behind your back.
  • Never wear a seat belt over fragile objects. If there is a sudden stop or impact, the seat belt can damage it.
  • Do not use the seat belt if it is twisted. A twisted seat belt will not protect you properly in an accident.
  • Do not use a seat belt if the webbing or hardware is damaged.
  • Do not latch the seat belt into the buckles of other seats.
  • NEVER unfasten the seat belt while driving. This may cause loss of vehicle control resulting in an accident.
  • Make sure there is nothing in the buckle interfering with the seat belt latch mechanism, because any materials in the buckle can cause the seat belt not to be fastened securely.
  • 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

Damaged seat belts and seat belt assemblies will not operate properly. Always replace:

  • Frayed, contaminated, or damaged webbing.
  • Damaged hardware.
  • The entire seat belt assembly after it has been worn in an accident, even if damage to webbing or assembly is not apparent.

    Air bag collision sensors

    WARNING

    To reduce the risk of an air bag deploying unexpectedly and causing serious injury or death:

    Do not hit or allow any objects to impact the locations where air bags or sensors are installed. Do not perform maintenance on or around the air bag sensors. If the location or angle of the sensors is altered, the air bags may deploy when they should not or may not deploy when they should. Installing bumper guards with nongenuine Hyundai or non-equivalent parts may adversely affect the collision and airbag deployment performance. Press the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF or ACC position and wait for 3 minutes when the vehicle is being towed to prevent inadvertent air bag deployment. Have all air bag repairs performed by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
