The pretensioner system will retract their respective seat belts instantaneously, thus maximizing the seat belt’s effectiveness, if there is a frontal impact severe enough to injure the driver and/or front passenger and the ignition switch is in the “ON” or “START” position.
► To obtain the best results from your pretensioner seat belt, make sure you have adjusted your seat correctly and wear your seat belt properly.
► Installation of audio equipment or repairs in the vicinity of the pretensioner
seat belts or floor console must be performed in line with MITSUBISHI MOTORS guidelines.
It is important to do so because the work could affect the pretensioner systems.
► If you need to scrap the vehicle, please consult a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point. It is important to do so because unexpected activation of the pretensioner seat belts could cause injuries.
► The pretensioner seat belts will be activated if the vehicle suffers a severe
frontal impact, even if the seat belts are not worn.
► The pretensioner seat belts are designed to work only once. After the pretensioner seat belts have been activated, we recommend you have it replaced by a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point.
