of

or
objects
must
be
securely
fastened
in
the
luggage
compartment.

evenly
in
the

partment.

as
far

WARNING
The
luggage
compartment
cover
is
not
a
surface
for
storing
objects.
Objects
placed
on
the
cover
increase
the
risk of
injury
to
all
vehicle
occupants
during
sudden
driving
or
braking
maneuvers
or
in
the
event
of
an
ac-
cident.
Loose
objects
can
be
thrown
around
the
ve-
hicle
interior
during
sudden
driving
or
brak-
ing
maneuvers,
which
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Always
stow
objects
securely
in
the
luggage
compartment
and
secure
them
at
the
tie-downs.
Use
straps
suitable
for
heavy
objects.
If
pieces
of
luggage
or
objects
are
secured
to
the
tie-downs
with
unsuitable
or
dam-
aged
straps,
this
can
increase
the
risk
of
in-
jury
during
braking
maneuvers
or
accidents.
When
transporting
heavy
objects,
the
vehi-
cle
characteristics
will
change
due
to
the
shift
in
the
center
of
gravity,
which
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
You
may
need
to
adapt
your
driving
style
and
speed
to
the
current
conditions.
The
cargo
net
is
only
strong
enough
to
se-
cure
light
objects.
Heavy
objects
are
not
ade-
quately
secured.
Attempting
to
secure
heavy
objects
increases
the
risk
of
injury.

the
permitted
axle

the
tie-
downs.
Never
leave
your
vehicle
unattended,

cially

is
open.
Children
could
enter
the
luggage
com-
partment
and
close
the
luggage
compart-
ment
lid
from
the
inside.
This
creates
the
risk of
fatal
injury,
since
the
children
would
be
locked
in
and
may
not
be
able
to
escape
by
themselves.
Do
not
allow
children
to
play
in
or
on
the
ve-
hicle.
Close
and
lock
the
luggage
compart-
ment
lid

well
as
all
other
doors
when
you
leave
the
vehicle.

passengers
in
the
luggage
compartment.

rectly

safety
belts
in
the
vehicle

reduce
the
risk
of

The
backrest
must
be
securely
latched
so
objects
cannot
slide

out
of
the
lug-
gage
compartment
during
sudden
braking.

jects
