Subaru Forester: Rear seats / Folding down the rear seatback

WARNING

  • When you fold down the seatback, check that there are no passengers or objects on the rear seat. Not doing so creates a risk of injury or property damage if the seatback suddenly folds down.
  • Never allow passengers to ride on the folded rear seatback or in the cargo area. Doing so may result in serious injury or death.
  • Secure all objects and especially long items properly to prevent them from being thrown around inside the vehicle and causing serious injury during a sudden stop, steering maneuver or acceleration.
  • When you return the seatback to its original position, shake it slightly to confirm that it is securely in place. If it is not securely fixed in place, it may suddenly fold down in the event of sudden braking, or objects may move out from the cargo area. Both could cause serious injury or death.

  • The seatbelt should not pass behind the striker for the seatback.

CAUTION

  • Do not hang luggage etc. on the striker. The possibility exists that the seatback may not be able to be fixed firmly in place. This could lead to unexpected accidents.
  • While driving, if something hits the release latch, it is possible that the seatback will fold down. Be careful that no luggage etc. hits the latch.
