GMC Terrain: Rear Seats / Raising the Seatback

Warning

If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there. Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.

Warning

A seat belt that is improperly routed, not properly attached, or twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash. The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. After raising the rear seatback, always check to be sure that the seat belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.

To raise a seatback:

    Either side of the seatback can be folded for more cargo space. Fold a seatback only when the vehicle is not moving. Caution Folding a rear seat with the seat belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the seat belts...
