There are 4 tie-downs in the front and rear of the luggage compartment, which you can use to secure luggage or other items ⇒ Fig. 100  (arrows).

Elastic straps can snap back towards you if they are not properly attached.

If you use elastic straps to secure items in the luggage compartment, be sure to fist securely attach them to the downs just behind the rear seat backrest first and then to the and then to the tie-downs at the loading edge of the luggage compartment.

Remove the hooks from the tie-downs in the reverse order described above, first from the tie-downs at the loading edge and then from the tie-downs behind the rear seat backrest so that if the hooks come loose suddenly, they will move away from you.

Warning

Unsuitable, worn, or damaged tie-down straps (elastic or non-elastic) can snap or come loose during braking or other maneuvers or in a collision. Objects secured with these straps can then come loose and fly through the passenger compartment, causing severe personal injuries or death.
  • To help prevent baggage or other items from coming loose and flying around, always use suitable undamaged tie-down straps.
  • Securely fasten the tie-down straps to the tie-downs.
  • Loose or improperly secured objects in the luggage compartment can slide about suddenly and change the vehicle's handling.
  • Secure even small and light objects. Loose objects in the luggage or passenger compartment can fly about during sudden braking maneuvers or in the event of an accident and injure occupants.
  • Never exceed the maximum allowable load on the tie-downs when securing objects.
  • Never secure a child seat to the tie-downs.

Warning

Elastic straps have to be stretched when being attached to the tie-downs in the luggage compartment Hooks on elastic straps can cause serious personal injury if not handled properly and attached securely.
  • Always protect eyes and face from injury from the hooks when attaching them to the vehicle and do not let them snap back and hit you.
  • Always hold the hooks on elastic straps firmly when attaching to the vehicle and do not let them snap back and hit you.
  • Always protect eyes and face from injury from hooks when attaching them to the tie-downs in the luggage compartment.
  • First attach hooks to the tie-downs at the rear seat backrest in the luggage compartment and then to the tie-downs near the loading edge of the luggage compartment. If one of the hooks on the elastic straps snaps back, it will move away from you and towards you, increasing the risk of injury.

The maximum load for the tie-downs is about 785 lbs. (356 kg).
