Mazda 2: Head Restraints

Your vehicle is equipped with head restraints on front seats, rear outboard seats* and the rear centre seat * . The head restraints are intended to help protect you and the passengers from neck injury.

WARNING

Always drive with the head restraints installed when seats are being used and make sure they are properly adjusted.

In addition, always raise the head restraints mentioned below when they are being used: Driving with the head restraints adjusted too low or removed is dangerous. With no support behind your head, your neck could be seriously injured in a collision.

WARNING

Always drive with the head restraints installed when seats are being used and make sure they are properly installed: Driving with the head restraints not installed is dangerous. With no support behind your head, your neck could be seriously injured in a collision.

After installing a head restraint, try lifting it to make sure that it does not pull out: Driving with an unsecured head restraint is dangerous as the effectiveness of the head restraint will be compromised which could cause it to unexpectedly detach from the seat.
