Side Curtain Airbags  
The side curtain airbags help protect the heads of the driver and passengers in the  
outer seating positions during a moderate-to-severe side impact. The side curtain  
airbags equipped in this vehicle are also designed to help reduce the likelihood of  
partial and complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in crashes,  
particularly rollover crashes.  
To get the best protection from the side curtain  
airbags, occupants should wear their seat belts  
properly and sit upright and well back in their seats.  
Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof  
pillars as they can interfere with the proper operation  
of the side curtain airbags.  
Housing Locations  
The side curtain airbags are located in the  
ceiling above the side windows on both sides  
of the vehicle.  
If the impact is on the passenger’s side, the  
passenger’s side curtain airbag deploys even if there  
are no occupants on that side of the vehicle.  
If the SRS control unit senses that your vehicle is  
about to rollover, it immediately deploys both side  
curtain airbags and activates the seat belt tensioners  
for the front seats and outer rear seats.
