against the likelihood of whiplash  
and injuries to the neck and upper  
spine.  
For a head restraint system to work  
properly:  
Do not hang any items on the head  
restraints, or from the restraint  
legs.  
After a collision, the activated  
restraint should return to its normal  
position.  
Do not place any object between  
an occupant and the seat-back.  
If the restraints do not return to their  
normal position, or in the event of a  
severe collision, have the vehicle  
inspected by a Honda dealer.  
Install each restraint in its proper  
location.  
Only use genuine Honda  
replacement head restraints.  
The driver’s and front passenger’s  
seats have active head restraints. If  
the vehicle is struck severely from  
the rear, the occupant properly  
secured with the seat belt will be  
pushed against the seat-back and the  
head restraint will automatically  
move forward.  
This reduces the distance between  
the restraint and the occupant’s head.  
It also helps protect the occupants

Folding the Rear Seats Down  
Each rear seat-back can be folded  
down separately to give more cargo  
room. With either of the outer seat-  
backs folded-down, you can still  
carry a passenger in the rear seat.  
With the center seat-back folded-  
down, either outer seating position  
can be used.  
You can also fold up the left or right  
side of the rear seats separately to  
create further cargo space (see page  
107 ).

Allow the seat belt to retract into the  
holder on the ceiling and store the  
buckles in it.

Reverse this procedure to return the  
seat-back to the upright position.  
Make sure the seat is secured and  
the seat belt is in front of the seat-  
back before driving.  
Make sure that the folded down rear  
seat does not interfere with the front  
passenger’s seat-back. This will  
cause the front passenger’s weight  
sensors and the front passenger’s  
seat belt reminder indicator to work  
improperly (see page 19 ). Also  
check the passenger airbag off  
indicator to assure proper operation  
of the passenger’s front airbag (see  
page 33 ).

be sure the detachable anchor is  
latched securely (see page 109 ).

to brake hard (See Carrying Cargo  
on page 304 ).  
Lower the center seat-back before  
folding the passenger’s side seat  
forward.  
SLIDE BARS

1. Pull up the bar under the seat  
cushion and slide the rear seat  
backward. The rear seat will not
