Safety of Infants and Small Children  
1Protecting Infants  
Protecting Infants  
An infant must be properly restrained in a rear-facing, reclining child restraint system  
until the infant reaches the restraint system manufacturer’s weight or height limit  
for the seat, and the infant is at least one year old.  
Positioning a rear-facing child restraint  
system  
3WARNING  
Placing a rear-facing child restraint system  
in the front seat can result in serious injury  
or death if the passenger’s front airbag  
inflates.  
Child restraint system must be placed and  
secured in a rear seating position.  
Always place a rear-facing child restraint  
system in the back seat, not the front.  
u If this occurs, we recommend that you  
install the child restraint system directly  
behind the front passenger’s seat, move  
the seat as far forward as needed, and  
leave it unoccupied.  
As required by UN Regulation No. 94:  
3WARNING  
Or, you may wish to get a smaller rear-  
facing child restraint system.  
u Make sure that there is no contact  
between the child restraint system and  
the seat in front of it.  
NEVER use a rearward facing child restraint  
on a seat protected by an ACTIVE AIRBAG  
in front of it, DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to  
the CHILD can occur.

uuChild SafetyuSafety of Infants and Small Children  
When properly installed, a rear-facing child restraint system may prevent the driver  
or a front passenger from moving their seat all the way back, or from locking their  
seat-back in the desired position.  
1Protecting Infants  
Many experts recommend use of a rear-facing child  
restraint system for a child up to two years old if the  
child’s height and weight are appropriate for a rear-  
facing child restraint system.  
If the passenger’s front airbag inflates, it can hit the  
rear-facing child restraint system with great force,  
which can dislodge or strike the system, and seriously  
injure the child.  
Rear-facing child restraint systems should never be  
installed in a front facing position.  
Always refer to the child restraint system  
manufacturer’s instructions before installation.  
If it is absolutely unavoidable to install a rear-facing  
child restraint system in the front passenger seat,  
manually turn off the passenger front airbag system.

1Protecting Smaller Children  
Protecting Smaller Children  
If a child is at least one year old and has exceeded the weight and height limitations  
of a rear-facing child restraint system, the child should be properly restrained in a  
firmly secured front-facing child restraint system until they exceed the weight and  
height limitations for the front-facing child restraint system.  
3WARNING  
Placing a front-facing child restraint system  
in the front seat can result in serious injury  
or death if the front airbag inflates.  
Front-facing child restraint system  
placement  
We strongly recommend placing a front-  
facing child restraint system in a rear seating  
position.  
If you must place a front-facing child  
restraint system in front, move the vehicle  
seat as far back as possible, and properly  
restrain the child.  
Educate yourself about the laws and regulations  
regarding child restraint system use where you are  
driving, and follow the child restraint system  
manufacturer’s instructions.  
Placing a front-facing child restraint system in the front seat can be hazardous. A  
rear seat is the safest place for a child.

1Selecting a Child Restraint System  
Selecting a Child Restraint System  
Installation of a lower anchorage-compatible child  
restraint system is simple.  
Some child restraint systems are lower anchorage compatible. Some have a rigid-  
type connector while others have a flexible-type connector. Both are equally easy to  
use. Some existing and previously owned child restraint systems can only be installed  
using the seat belt. Whichever type you choose, follow the child restraint system  
manufacturer’s use and care instructions including recommended expiration dates  
as well as the instructions in this manual. Proper installation is key to maximizing  
your child’s safety.  
Lower anchorage-compatible child restraint systems  
have been developed to simplify the installation  
process and reduce the likelihood of injuries caused  
by incorrect installation.  
The flexible type may not be available in your country.  
In seating positions and vehicles not equipped with lower anchorages, install a child  
restraint system using the seat belt and a top tether for added security. This is  
because all child restraint systems must be secured with the seat belt when the  
lower anchorage system is not in use. In addition, the child restraint system  
manufacturer may advise that a seat belt be used to attach an ISO FIX restraint  
system once a child reaches a specified weight. Please read the child restraint system  
owner’s manual for proper installation instructions.  
Important consideration when selecting a child restraint system  
Make sure the child restraint system meets the following three requirements:  
The child restraint system is the correct type and size for the child.  
The child restraint system is the correct type for the seating position.  
The child restraint system is compliant with safety standards. We recommend a  
child restraint system compliant with UN Regulation No. 44 or No. 129, or the  
regulations of the subject countries. Look for the approval mark on the system  
and the manufacturer’s statement of compliance on the box.

Child Restraint Systems Standards  
1Selecting a Child Restraint System  
If a child restraint system (whether an i-Size/ISOFIX type or one that is fitted with a  
seat belt) meets the relevant UN Regulation, it will be affixed with an approval label  
as shown in the adjacent table. Before purchasing or using any child restraint  
system, make sure to check the approval label and ensure that it is compatible with  
your vehicle and the child, and that it complies with the relevant UN Regulation.
