*SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag)

Subaru Forester / Subaru Forester 2012-2019 Owners Manual / Seat, seatbelt and SRS airbags / *SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag)

*SRS: This stands for supplemental restraint system. This name is used because the airbag system supplements the vehicle’s seatbelts.

Your vehicle is equipped with a supplemental restraint system in addition to a lap/shoulder belt at each front seating position and each rear window-side seating positions. The supplemental restraint system (SRS) consists of seven airbags.

The configurations are as follows.

Driver’s and front passenger’s frontal airbags
Driver’s and front passenger’s side airbags
Curtain airbags (for driver, front passenger, and window-side rear passengers) Knee airbag for driver

These SRS airbags are designed only as a supplement to the primary protection provided by the seatbelt.

The system also controls front seatbelt pretensioners. For operation instructions and precautions concerning the seatbelt pretensioner, refer to “Front seatbelt pretensioners” .
