CHILD SEAT POSITIONING

WARNING

Seat belts (or suitable child restraints) should be used by all vehicle occupants, for every trip, no matter how short. Failure to do so will greatly increase the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Even with advanced air bags, children can be killed or seriously injured. Never place a child in any type of restraint or booster seat in the front passenger seat.

When using a seat belt to secure a (non-LATCH) forward-facing type of child seat, make sure the Seat belt locking mechanism is used. See CHILD RESTRAINT CHECK LIST. Also see CHILD RESTRAINT CHECK LIST.
