Loose objects can be thrown around the inside of the vehicle when the vehicle is moving, especially during sudden maneuvers and hard braking. This can cause serious personal injuries and even make the driver lose control of the vehicle.
  • Never let animals ride in the vehicle's open storage compartments, on top of the instrument panel, or on the shelf behind the rear seats.
  • Never put hard, heavy or sharp objects in these places or in articles of clothing or bags in the passenger compartment.
  • Always keep storage compartments closed while driving.


Objects in the driver footwell can prevent the pedals from moving freely. This can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of serious personal injuries.
  • Always make sure that nothing can interfere with the pedals.
  • Always fasten floor mats securely to the floor.
  • Never put floor mats or other floor coverings on top of already installed floor mats.
  • Always make sure that nothing can fall into the driver footwell while the vehicle is moving.


  • The defroster heating wires or antenna in the rear window can be damaged by hard or sharp things on the shelf below the rear window
  • Do not keep any food, medicine, or other items sensitive to heat or cold in the vehicle. They can be damaged or made unusable by heat or cold.
  • Things that are made of transparent materials (such as eyeglasses, magnifying glasses, or transparent suction cups on the windows) can magnify sunlight and damage the vehicle.

The ventilation slots between the rear window and the luggage compartment cover must not be blocked so that stale air can escape from the vehicle.
