1 Cargo capacity

1 Cargo capacity
2 Total load capacity

When 2 people with the combined weight of 366 lb. (166 kg) are riding in your vehicle, which has a total load capacity of 905 lb. (410 kg), the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity will be as follows:

905 lb. - 366 lb. = 539 lb. (410 kg -166 kg = 244 kg)

In this condition, if 3 more passengers with the combined weight of 388 lb. (176 kg) get on, the available cargo and luggage load will be reduced as follows:

539 lb. - 388 lb. = 151 lb. (244 kg - 176 kg = 68 kg)

As shown in the above example, if the number of occupants increases, the cargo and luggage load will be reduced by an amount that equals the increased weight due to the additional occupants. In other words, if an increase in the number of occupants causes an excess of the total load capacity (combined weight of occupants plus cargo and luggage load), you must reduce the cargo and luggage on your vehicle.

CAUTION
■Things that must not be carried in the trunk The following things may cause a fire if loaded in the trunk: ●Receptacles containing gasoline ●Aerosol cans
■Storage precautions Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

●Stow cargo and luggage in the trunk whenever possible.

●To prevent cargo and luggage from sliding forward during braking, do not stack anything in the enlarged trunk. Keep cargo and luggage low, as close to the floor as possible.

●When you fold down the rear seats, long items should not be placed directly behind the front seats.

●Never allow anyone to ride in the enlarged trunk. It is not designed for passengers. They should ride in their seats with their seat belts properly fastened. Otherwise, they are much more likely to suffer death or serious bodily injury, in the event of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

●Do not place cargo or luggage in or on the following locations as the item may get under the brake or accelerator pedal and prevent the pedals from being depressed properly, block the drivers vision, or hit the driver or passengers, causing an accident: At the feet of the driver On the front passenger or rear seats (when stacking items) On the package tray
On the instrument panel On the dashboard
●Secure all items in the occupant compartment, as they may shift and injure someone during sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

■Capacity and distribution ●Do not exceed the maximum axle weight rating or the total vehicle weight rating.

●Even if the total load of occupant's weight and the cargo load is less than the total load capacity, do not apply the load unevenly.

Improper loading may cause deterioration of steering or braking control which may cause death or serious injury.
