Warning

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment. Due to the system limits, critical situation could not be detected reliably or in time. There is a risk of accident.

Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Function

When the safety belt is fastened, the driver's and front passenger's belt straps are automatically tightened once after driving away.

In accident-critical situations, the following individual functions become active as needed:

After a critical driving situation without an accident, the front safety belts are loosened again.

If the belt tension does not loosen automatically, stop the vehicle and unbuckle the safety belt using the red button in the buckle. Fasten the safety belt before continuing on your trip.

All other systems can be restored to the desired setting.
