Door Locks

CAUTION:
Unlocked doors can be dangerous.

• Passengers, especially children, can easily open the doors and fall out of a moving vehicle. When a door is locked, the handle will not open it.

You increase the chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash if the doors are not locked. So, wear safety belts properly and lock the doors whenever you drive.

A child can be overcome by extreme heat and can suffer permanent injuries or even death from heat stroke.

Always lock your vehicle whenever you leave it.
