Ford Fiesta 2009-2019 Owners Manual

Sitting in the Correct Position

WARNINGS

Do not recline the seatback too far as this can cause the occupant to slide under the safety belt, resulting in serious injury in the event of a collision.

Sitting improperly, out of position or with the seatback reclined too far, can result in serious injury or death in the event of a collision. Always sit upright against your seatback, with your feet on the floor.

Do not place objects higher than the seatback to reduce the risk of serious injury in the event of a collision or during heavy braking.

Ford Fiesta. Sitting in the Correct Position

When you use them properly, the seat, head restraint, safety belt and air bags will provide optimum protection in the event of a collision.

We recommend that you follow these guidelines:

  • Sit in an upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible.
  • Do not recline the seatback more than 30 degrees.
  • Adjust the head restraint so that the top of it is level with the top of your head and as far forward as possible.

    Make sure that you remain comfortable.

  • Keep sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. We recommend a minimum of 10 inches (25 centimeters) between your breastbone and the air bag cover.
  • Hold the steering wheel with your arms slightly bent.
  • Bend your legs slightly so that you can press the pedals fully.
  • Position the shoulder strap of the safety belt over the center of your shoulder and position the lap strap tightly across your hips.

Make sure that your driving position is comfortable and that you can maintain full control of your vehicle.

Head Restraints

WARNINGS

Fully adjust the head restraint before you sit in or operate your vehicle. This will help minimize the risk of neck injury in the event of a crash. Do not adjust the head restraint when your vehicle is moving.

The head restraint is a safety device.

Whenever possible it should be installed and properly adjusted when the seat is occupied. An improperly adjusted head restraint may not adequately protect an occupant during an impact from the rear.

Install the head restraint properly to help minimize the risk of neck injury in the event of a crash.

Note: Adjust the seat back to an upright driving position before adjusting the head restraint. Adjust the head restraint so that the top of it is level with the top of your head and as far forward as possible. Make sure that you remain comfortable. If you are extremely tall, adjust the head restraint to its highest position.
