Never stack luggage or other cargo higher than the top of the seatback because it could tumble forward and injure passengers in the event of a sudden stop or accident. Keep luggage or cargo low, as close to the floor as possible.

Do not pile heavy loads on the roof. These loads raise the vehicles center of gravity and make it more prone to tip over.

Secure lengthy items properly to prevent them from shooting forward and causing serious injury during a sudden stop.

Never exceed the maximum load limit. If you do, some parts on your vehicle can break, or it can change the way your vehicle handles. This could result in loss of control and cause personal injury. Also, overloading can shorten the life of your vehicle.
