- Modifying or tampering with the front passenger seat may result in serious personal injury. For example, do not change the front seats by placing material on the seat cushion or by installing additional trim material, such as seat covers, on the seat that is not specifically designed to assure proper air bag operation.

Additionally, do not stow any objects under the front passenger seat or the seat cushion and seatback.

Such objects may interfere with the proper operation of the occupant classification sensor.
