Important safety notes

WARNING
Ensure that the trunk lid/tailgate is closed when the engine is running and the vehicle is in motion. Among other dangers, deadly carbon monoxide (CO) may enter the vehicle interior and cause unconsciousness and even death.

The trunk lid/tailgate swings upwards and to the rear when opened. Therefore, make sure that there is sufficient clearance above and behind the trunk lid/tailgate.

Sedan: to open the trunk lid completely, a minimum clearance of 5.78 ft (1.76 m) above the ground is necessary.

Wagon: to open the tailgate completely, a minimum clearance of 6.36 ft (1.94 m) above the ground is necessary.
