CHILD SEATS

WARNING

Make sure the child seat fits your child properly. Always check the seat manufacturer's instructions and labels for height and weight limits. For more specific guidance, consult your pediatrician.

There are three general types of child restraint systems: Infant seats, toddler seats, and belt-positioning booster seats.

Infants: Birth to 1 year of age and at least 20 lbs (9 kg).

Toddlers: until about age 4 years and about 40 lbs (18 kg).

Boosters: belt-positioning booster until about age 8 or at least 4 ft 9 inches (145 cm) and seat belt fits properly.

WARNING

Do not allow a baby or infant to be held or carried on the lap. The force of a crash can increase effective body weight by as much as thirty times, making it impossible to hold onto the child. At all times, children should be restrained in age and size appropriate child seats to reduce the risk of injury in a crash.

WARNING

Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Always follow the instructions that accompany the child seat carefully.

Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by use of the lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap-shoulder belt. Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle.

The seat belts fitted to your vehicle are designed for adults and larger children. For their safety, it is very important for all infants and children under 12 years of age to be restrained in a suitable child safety seat appropriate to their age and size.

This symbol, affixed to the door post on the passenger side, warns against the use of a rear-facing child seat in the passenger seat, when a front passenger air bag is fitted and operational.

If it is essential that a child travels in the passenger seat (and national or state legislation permits this), Jaguar recommends that the following preparations are made before fitting the child restraint:

  • Adjust the passenger seat fully rearwards.

  • Adjust the lumbar support to its minimum support position.

  • Adjust the seat cushion to its highest position. If cushion front tilt adjustment is possible, adjust it to its lowest position.

  • Adjust the seatback to the fully upright position.

WARNING

Extreme hazard! Never place a rearward facing child restraint on the front passenger seat. The infant could be seriously injured or killed if the air bag deploys.
