Skoda Fabia: Boot

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

Please observe the following for the purpose of maintaining good handling characteristics of your vehicle:

  • Distribute loads as evenly as possible.
  • Place heavy objects as far forward as possible.
  • Attach the items of luggage to the lashing eyes or using the fixing net » page 70.

In the event of an accident, even small and light objects gain so much kinetic energy that they can cause severe injuries.

The magnitude of the kinetic energy is dependent on the speed at which the vehicle is travelling and the weight of the object.

Example: In the event of a frontal collision at a speed of 50 km/h, an object weighing 4.5 kg produces energy corresponding to 20 times its own weight.

This means that it results in a weight of approx. 90 kg “ ”.

WARNING

  • Store the objects in the boot and attach them to the lashing eyes.
  • Loose objects can be thrown forward during a sudden manoeuvre or in case of an accident and can injure the occupants or other road users.
  • Loose objects could hit a deployed airbag and injure occupants – there is a risk of death.
  • Please note that the handling properties of the vehicle may be affected when transporting heavy objects as the centre of gravity can be shifted – there is a risk of an accident. The speed and style of driving must be adjusted accordingly.
  • If the items of luggage or objects are attached to the lashing eyes with unsuitable or damaged lashing straps, injuries can occur in the event of braking manoeuvres or accidents. To prevent items of luggage from being thrown forward, always use suitable lashing straps which must be firmly attached to the lashing eyes.
  • Items carried in the luggage compartment must be stowed in such a way that no objects are able to slip forward under sudden driving manoeuvres or braking – there is a risk of injury.
  • When transporting fastened objects which are sharp and dangerous in the boot that has been enlarged by folding the rear seats forward, ensure the safety of the passengers transported on the other rear seats » page 9, Correct seated position of the rear seat passengers.
  • If the rear seat next to the folded forward seat is occupied, ensure maximum safety, e.g. by placing the goods to be transported in such a way that the seat is prevented from folding back in case of a rear collision.
  • Never drive with the tailgate fully opened or slightly ajar otherwise exhaust gases may get into the interior of the vehicle – risk of poisoning.
  • Under no circumstances, should the permissible axle loads and permissible gross weight of the vehicle be exceeded – there is the risk of an accident.
  • Never transport people in the boot!

CAUTION

Please ensure that the heating elements for the rear window heater are not damaged as a result of abrasive objects.

Note

Tyre pressure must be adjusted to the load » page 152, Tyre service life.
