Adjusting Your Vehicle Seat

You should be seated upright with your back against the seat and feet on the floor.

Improper seating positions, such as slouching, can result in reduced effectiveness of the vehicle’s restraint system.

Adjust the seat and mirrors before you start to drive so you can see clearly and have full control of the vehicle’s foot pedals and steering wheel with appropriate space for airbag deployment.

• Your foot should be able to pivot smoothly from brake to accelerator while your heel is kept on the floor.

• The top of the steering wheel should be no higher than the top of your shoulders and below chin level.

• There should be 10 inches between your chest and the steering wheel.

Do not move the seat so far forward that you cannot easily steer and do not recline the seat.

• Head restraints are designed to prevent whiplash. Head restraints should be adjusted so the head restraint contacts the back of your head and not below the level of your ears.
