  • Laws and regulations pertaining to anchorages

The LATCH system conforms to FMVSS225.

Child restraint systems conforming to FMVSS213 specifications can be used.

This vehicle is designed to conform to the SAE J1819.

CAUTION

  • When installing a booster seat

Do not fully extend the shoulder belt to prevent the belt from going to ALR lock mode: ALR mode causes the belt to tighten only which could cause injury or discomfort to the child.

 

CAUTION

  • When installing a child restraint system

Follow the directions given in the child restraint system installation manual and fix the child restraint system securely in place.

If the child restraint system is not correctly fixed in place, the child or other passengers may be seriously injured or even killed in the event of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

  • If the drivers seat interferes with the child restraint system and prevents it from being attached correctly, attach the child restraint system to the righthand rear seat.
  • Child restraint system installed on the third seat should not contact the second seatbacks.

  • Only put a forward-facing child restraint system on the front seat when unavoidable.

    When installing a forward-facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible even if the AIR BAG OFF indicator light illuminates. Failing to do so may result in death or serious injury if the airbags deploy (inflate).

  • When using the LATCH anchors for a child restraint system, move the seat as far as possible and adjust the seatback as upright as possible, with the seatback close to the child restraint system.
  • When a booster seat is installed, always ensure that the shoulder belt is positioned across the center of the childs shoulder. The belt should be kept away from the childs neck, but not so that it could fall off the childs shoulder. Failing to do so may result in death or serious injury in the event of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

 

CAUTION

  • When installing a child restraint system

  • Ensure that the belt and tab are securely locked and the seat belt is not twisted.
  • Shake the child restraint left and right, and forward and back to ensure that it has been securely installed.
  • After securing a child restraint system, never adjust the seat.
  • Follow all installation instructions provided by the child restraint system manufacturer.
  • Do not use a seat belt extender

If a seat belt extender is used when installing a child restraint system, the seat belt will not securely hold the child restraint system, which could cause death or serious injury to the child or other passengers in the event of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

  • To correctly attach a child restraint system to the anchors

When using the LATCH anchors, be sure that there are no foreign objects around the anchors and that the seat belt is not caught behind the child restraint system. Make sure the child restraint system is securely attached, or it may cause death or serious injury to the child or other passengers in the event of a sudden stop, sudden swerve or accident.
