Do not drive with the liftgate/trunk lid open: Exhaust gas in the cabin of a vehicle is dangerous. An open liftgate/trunk lid in a moving vehicle will cause exhaust gas to be drawn into the cabin. This gas contains CO (carbon monoxide), which is colorless, odorless, and highly poisonous, and it can cause loss of consciousness and death. Moreover, an open liftgate/trunk lid could cause occupants to fall out in an accident.

Do not stack or leave loaded luggage unsecured in the luggage compartment: Otherwise, the luggage may move or collapse, resulting in injury or an accident. In addition, do not load luggage higher than the seatbacks. It may aff ect the side or rear fi eld of view.

  • Before opening the liftgate/trunk lid, remove any snow and ice accumulation on it. Otherwise, the liftgate/trunk lid could close under the weight of the snow and ice resulting in injury.
  • Be careful when opening/closing the liftgate/trunk lid during strong winds.

    If a strong gust blows against the liftgate/trunk lid, it could close suddenly resulting in injury.

  • Fully open the liftgate/trunk lid and make sure that it stays open. If the liftgate/trunk lid is only opened partially, it could slam shut by vibration or wind gusts resulting in injury.
  • When loading or unloading luggage in the luggage compartment/trunk, turn off the engine. Otherwise, you could get burned by the heat of the exhaust gas.
  • Be careful not to apply excessive force to the damper stay on the liftgate such as by putting your hand on the stay.
