WARNING

Combustion engines emit poisonous exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide. If the rear door is open when the engine is running, particularly if the vehicle is moving, exhaust fumes could enter the passenger compartment. There is a risk of poisoning.

Turn off the engine before opening the rear door. Never drive with the rear door open.

WARNING

If you open a rear door, you could:

  • endanger other people or road users

  • be caught by oncoming traffic

This is particularly the case if you open the rear door more than 90°. There is a risk of an accident and injury.

Only open the rear doors when traffic conditions permit. Always make sure that the rear doors are properly locked.

WARNING

If you open the rear doors 90°, the rear lights are covered. The vehicle is then difficult or impossible to recognise for other road users, in particular when it is dark or visibility is poor. There is a risk of an accident.

You should ensure that in these or similar situations the vehicle is visible from the rear in accordance with the relevant national regulations, by using the warning triangle, for instance.
