Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Examples of improper seating positions

Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

Not wearing or improperly fastening safety belts increases the risk of severe or fatal injuries. Safety belts can work only when they are properly positioned on the body. An improper seating position significantly impairs the protection provided by safety belts. This can cause severe or even fatal injuries. Improper seating positions also increase the risk of serious injury or death when an airbag deploys and strikes an occupant who is not in the proper seating position. The driver is responsible for all passengers and especially children riding in the vehicle.

The following are only some examples of seating positions that will increase the risk of serious injury or death.

Therefore, whenever the vehicle is moving

  • Never stand up in the vehicle.
  • Never stand on the seats.
  • Never kneel on the seats.
  • Never ride with the seat backrest reclined.
  • Never lean up against the instrument panel.
  • Never lie down on the rear seat.
  • Never sit on the edge of the seat.
  • Never sit sideways.
  • Never lean out the window.
  • Never put your feet out the window.
  • Never put feet on the instrument panel.
  • Never rest your feet on the seat cushion or back of the seat.
  • Never ride in the footwell.
  • Never sit on the front or rear center armrest.
  • Never ride without your safety belt properly fastened.
  • Never ride in the luggage compartment.

Warning

Contact with parts of the vehicle interior can cause serious personal injury in a crash.
  • Always make sure that all vehicle occupants stay in a proper seating position and are properly restrained whenever the vehicle is moving.
  • Improper seating positions increase the risk of serious and fatal injury, especially when an airbag deploys and strikes a passenger in an improper seating position.
