Each rear seat-back can be folded down separately to give more cargo room. With either of the outer seatbacks folded-down, you can still carry a passenger in the rear seat.
With the center seat-back foldeddown, either outer seating position can be used.
You can also fold up the left or right side of the rear seats separately to create further cargo space.
Remove any items from the seat before folding down the seat-back.
1. Push the seat belt buckles into the seat cushion.
When you are folding the rear center seat-back, use the latch plate to release the center seat belt from the detachable anchor.
Allow the seat belt to retract into the holder on the ceiling and store the buckles in it.
Make sure the rear seat armrest is stored.
2. Push the button located next to each rear head restraint to pivot the head restraint down.
Lower the rear center head restraint to its lowest position.
3. Pull up the release lever on the top of the seat-back.
4. Fold the seat-back forward.
Do not put any heavy items on the seat-back when it is folded down.
Reverse this procedure to return the seat-back to the upright position.
Make sure the seat is secured and the seat belt is in front of the seatback before driving.
In the rear center seating position, be sure the detachable anchor is latched securely
Make sure that the folded down rear seat does not interfere with the front passengerвЂ™s seat-back. This will cause the front passengerвЂ™s weight sensors and the front passengerвЂ™s seat belt reminder indicator to work improperly. Also check the passenger airbag off indicator to assure proper operation of the passengerвЂ™s front airbag.
When any seat-back is folded down, do not use the dual deck cargo shelf (if equipped).
Make sure all items in the cargo area are secured. Loose items can fly forward and cause injury if you have to brake hard (See Carrying Cargo).
