Tips for Children

WARNINGS: For Children*

For a safer ride for your precious cargo, here are a few tips:
  • Secure all children under the age of 13 in a rear seat.
  • Infants and young children need the protection of a properly installed child restraint or booster seat.
  • Never put a rear-facing child restraint seat in the front vehicle seat as it can cause serious injury or death in the event of an accident and the deployment of the air bag.
  • It is best to install a forward-facing child restraint seat in rear vehicle seats. If this isn't possible for your vehicle, then carefully read your Owner's Manual to understand how to best install a forward-facing restraint in the front vehicle seat.
Lower Anchors and Top tethers for children (LATCH) System
  • LATCH System helps simplify the installation of child restraint seats.
  • Compatible with both forward- and rear-facing child seats.
Booster seats
  • Should be used if a child weighs between 80 and 100 pounds and is less than 4'10'' in height.
  • Only use a backless booster seat if your car's seatback is higher than your child's ear and has a head restraint. Otherwise, use a high-back booster seat.
  • You should also check your state law mandates on booster seats for complete details of usage.
