Your car’s driver front seat offers power controls to adjust the seat and help you find the perfect position for driving. Here’s what you need to do to adjust the seat:

  • Slide the oblong switch on the front left of the seat forward to move the seat forward. Pull it backward to slide the seat back.

  • Lift up on the front of the oblong switch to raise the front of the seat. Press it down to lower the front of the seat.

  • Lift up on the back of the oblong switch to raise the back of the seat. Press it down to lower the back of the seat.

  • Push the center switch forward or backward to adjust the tilt of the seatback.

  • Push the front or back of the rear button to adjust the amount of lumbar support in the seat.

Tips

  • Never adjust your seat while driving.

  • Never recline your seat fully as you can slide under the seat belt in an accident.

  • Sit as far back from the steering wheel as you can to prevent injuries from the air bag.
