If A Deployment Occurs

The Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment.

not mean something is wrong with the air bag system. NOTE: Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all collisions. This does not mean something is wrong with the air bag system.

If you do have a collision which deploys the air bags, any or all of the following may occur:

The nylon air bag material may sometimes cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the driver and front passenger as the air bags deploy and unfold. The abrasions are similar to friction rope burns or those you might get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They are not caused by contact with chemicals.

They are not permanent and normally heal quickly.

However, if you havent healed significantly within a few days, or if you have any blistering, see your doctor immediately.

As the air bags deflate, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for air bag inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If the irritation continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on your clothing, follow the garment manufacturers instructions for cleaning.

Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed.

If you are involved in another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.

Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another WARNING!

Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision. Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and the front seat belt retractor assemblies replaced by an authorized dealer immediately.

Also, have the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) system serviced as well.
