Hyundai Tucson: Seats & Safety System / Seat Belts

Seat Belt Safety Precautions

Always fasten your seat belt and make sure all passengers have fastened their seat belts before starting any trip. Airbags are designed to supplement the seat belt as an additional safety device, not a replacement. Most states require all vehicle occupants wear seat belts.


Seat belts must be used by ALL passengers whenever the vehicle is moving. To prevent serious injury or death:

  • Children under the age of 13 should be properly restrained in the rear seats.
  • Never allow children to ride in the front passenger seat. If a child age 13 or older must be seated in the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible and properly restrain them in the seat.
  • Never allow an infant or child to be carried on an occupant’s lap.
  • Never ride with the seatback reclined when the vehicle is moving.
  • Do not allow children to share a seat or seat belt.
  • Do not wear the shoulder belt under your arm or behind your back.
  • Do not use the seat belt if it is twisted. A twisted seat belt may not protect you properly in a collision.
  • Do not use a seat belt if the webbing or hardware is damaged. Have the seat belt replaced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Do not latch the seat belt into the buckles intended for other seating positions.
  • Never unfasten the seat belt while driving. This may cause loss of vehicle control resulting in a collision.
  • Make sure there is nothing in the buckle that could interfere with the seat belt latch mechanism from fastening securely.
  • Never modify seatbelt or install devices that may prevent seatbelt assembly from removing slack.


Damaged seat belts and seat belt assemblies do not operate properly. Always replace:

  • Frayed, contaminated, or damaged webbing.
  • Damaged hardware.
  • The entire seat belt assembly after it has been worn in an accident, even if damage to webbing or assembly is not apparent.
