How to Use this Manual
Many people read their owner’s manual from beginning to end when they first receive their new vehicle. If you do this, it will help you learn about the features and controls for your vehicle. In this manual, you’ll find that pictures and words work together to explain things quickly.

Here you’ll find information about the seats in your Pontiac and how to use your safety belts properly. You can also learn about some things you should not do with air bags and safety belts.

Underbody Maintenance
Chemicals used for ice and snow removal and dust control can collect on the underbody. If these are not removed, accelerated corrosion (rust) can occur on the underbody parts such as fuel lines, frame, floor pan and exhaust system even though they have corrosion protection.

At least every spring, flush these materials from the underbody with plain water. Clean any areas where mud and other debris can collect. Dirt packed in closed areas of the frame should be loosened before being flushed. Your dealer or an underbody car washing system can do this for you.

Chemical Paint Spotting
Some weather and atmospheric conditions can create a chemical fallout. Airborne pollutants can fall upon and attack painted surfaces on your vehicle. This damage can take two forms: blotchy, ringlet-shaped discolorations, and small irregular dark spots etched into the paint surface.

Although no defect in the paint job causes this, Pontiac will repair, at no charge to the owner, the surfaces of new vehicles damaged by this fallout condition within 12 months or 12,000 miles (20 000 km) of purchase, whichever occurs first.

Driver’s 4-Way Manual Seat
Use the lever on the front left side of the seat to adjusthe seat forward or rearward. Pull up the lever on the front of the seat to unlock it. Slide the seat towhere you want it. To make sure the seat is locked into place, release the lever and try to move the seat with your body.

Repla’cing the Second Row Solid Bench Seat
Don’t put the bench seat in so it faces rearward because it won’t latch that way. The solid benches have seat position labels, located on the back of the seat, showing where the seat must go. Follow that diagram. Use the A, C and E sets of floor cups. See “Seat Controls” in the beginning of this section for more details. The seat must be placed in the proper location for the legs to attach correctly.

Split ‘Bench Seats
If you have the split bench seat (50/50 or 40/680), the seakbacks can be folded down individually and the sections can be removed individually. The sections can also be adjusted forward or rearward individually. The second row (40/60) split bench may be equipped with built-in child restraint(s). See “Built-In Child Restraint’’ in the Index.

Replacing the Split Bench Sections
Don’t put the sections of the bench seat in so they face rearward because they won’t latch that way. If you want more storage room behind the seat, adjust each section by sliding it forward. The split benches have seat position labels, located on the back of each seat, showing where the seat must go. Follow that diagram.

Bucket Seats
There are three types of rear bucket seats: RIGHT ONLY, CENTER OR LEFT and LEFT ONLY. RIGHT ONLY and LEFT ONLY seats may be equipped with the built-in child restraint option. The rear bucket seats can be removed to provide extra storage. Each seat that has the built-in child restraint option fits in only one location in your vehicle, but seats that don’t have the built-in child restraint option can be moved to different rows.

Folding or Reclining the Seatbacks
To fold down the seatback on either section of the split bench seat, pull the nylon strap on the back of the seat or lift up on the lever on the front of the seatback. To raise either seatback,
pull the nylon strap on the back of the seat while raising the seatback until it locks upright. Push and pull on the seatback to check that it is locked upright.
