A tether anchor point is provided behind each 
rear seating position.
If you have a child seat that comes with a 
tether but can be installed with a seat belt, the 
tether may be used for additional security.

1.

Locate the appropriate tether anchor point 
and lift the cover.

2.

Route the tether strap over the head 
restraint. Make sure the strap is not twisted.

3.

Secure the tether strap hook to the anchor.

4.

Tighten the tether strap as instructed by the 
child seat manufacturer.

Safety of Larger Children

The following pages give instructions on how to check proper seat belt fit, what kind 
of booster seat to use if one is needed, and important precautions for a child who 
must sit in front.

When a child is too big for a child seat, secure the child in a rear seat using the lap/
shoulder seat belt. Have the child sit upright and all the way back, then answer the 
following questions.

Checklist

Do the child’s knees bend comfortably over 
the edge of the seat?

Does the shoulder belt cross between the 
child’s neck and arm?

Is the lap part of the seat belt as low as 
possible, touching the child’s thighs?

Will the child be able to stay seated like this 
for the whole trip?

If you answer yes to all these questions, the child is ready to wear the lap/shoulder 
seat belt correctly. If you answer no to any question, the child needs to ride on a 
booster seat until the seat belt fits properly without a booster seat.

WARNING

Allowing a child age 12 or under to sit in 
front can result in injury or death if the 
passenger’s front airbag inflates.

If a larger child must ride in front, move the 
vehicle seat as far to the rear as possible, 
have the child sit up properly and wear the 
seat belt properly, using a booster seat if 
needed.

Safe 

Driving

If a lap/shoulder seat belt cannot be used 
properly, position the child in a booster seat in 
the rear seat. For the child’s safety, check that 
the child meets the booster seat 
manufacturer’s recommendations.

Your vehicle has a rear seat where children can be properly restrained. If you ever 
have to carry a group of children, and a child must ride in front:

Make sure you read and fully understand the instructions and safety information 
in this manual.

Move the front passenger seat as far back as possible.

Have the child sit upright and well back in the seat.

Check that the seat belt is properly positioned so that the child is secure in the 
seat.

Monitoring child passengers

We strongly recommend that you keep an eye on child passengers. Even older, more 
mature children sometimes need to be reminded to fasten their seat belts and sit up 
properly.

Booster Seats

1

Booster Seats

When installing a booster seat, make sure to read the 
instructions that came with it, and install the seat 
accordingly.
There are high- and low-type booster seats. Choose a 
booster seat that allows the child to wear the seat 
belt correctly.

Some U.S. states require children to use a booster 
seat until they reach a given age or weight (e.g. 6 
years or 60 lbs). Be sure to check current laws in the 
state where you intend to drive.

Protecting Larger Children-Final Checks

Driving

Exhaust Gas Hazard

Carbon Monoxide Gas

The engine exhaust from this vehicle contains carbon monoxide, a colorless, 
odorless, and highly toxic gas. As long as you properly maintain your vehicle, carbon 
monoxide gas will not get into the interior.

Have the exhaust system inspected for leaks whenever

The exhaust system is making an unusual noise.

The exhaust system may have been damaged.

The vehicle is raised for an oil change.

When you operate a vehicle with the trunk open, airflow can pull exhaust gas into 
the interior and create a hazardous condition. If you must drive with the trunk open, 
open all the windows and set the climate control system as shown below.

1.

Select the fresh air mode.

2.

Select the 

 mode.

3.

Set the fan speed to high.

4.

Set the temperature control to a comfortable setting.

Adjust the climate control system in the same manner if you sit in your parked 
vehicle with the engine running.

1

Carbon Monoxide Gas

An enclosed area such as a garage can quickly fill up 
with carbon monoxide gas.
Do not run the engine with the garage door closed. 
Even when the garage door is open, drive out of the 
garage immediately after starting the engine.

3

WARNING

Carbon monoxide gas is toxic.

Breathing it can cause unconsciousness and 
even kill you.

Avoid any enclosed areas or activities that 
expose you to carbon monoxide.
