Protecting Infants  
Two types of seats may be used: a  
Rear-facing Child Seat Placement  
A rear-facing child seat can be placed  
in any seating position in the back  
seat, but not in the front. Never put a  
rear-facing child seat in the front  
seat designed exclusively for infants,  
or a convertible seat used in the rear-  
facing, reclining mode.  
Do not put a rear-facing child seat in  
a forward-facing position. If placed  
facing forward, an infant could be  
very seriously injured during a  
frontal collision.  
If the passenger’s front airbag  
inflates, it can hit the back of the  
child seat with enough force to kill or  
seriously injure an infant.  
When properly installed, a rear-  
facing child seat may prevent the  
driver or a front passenger from  
moving their seat as far back as  
recommended, or from locking their  
seat-back in the desired position.  
Child Seat Type  
An infant must be properly  
restrained in a rear-facing, reclining  
child seat until the child reaches the  
seat maker’s weight or height limit  
for the seat, and the child is at least  
one year old.  
It could also interfere with proper  
operation of the passenger’s  
advanced front airbag system.  
Only a rear-facing child seat provides  
proper support for a baby’s head,  
neck, and back.
