Can I install a child seat or booster in the outer rear seating position right next to the rear side airbags?
The side airbags installed for the front seating positions and the rear outboard positions have been designed and certified to help reduce the risk of injury that can be caused by airbags when they inflate, particularly when the occupant sitting next to it is not seated properly. The side airbag for the front seat and rear side airbags can be used with properly installed child restraints. Please be sure to read the important information and warnings whenever using a child restraint in a vehicle in section 2.1 of your Owner’s Manual.
- I have an older vehicle that is equipped with a lap belt only in the center position. Can I still install my booster seat in that position?
- How large should a child be before being able to sit in the fixed seat belt in the rear seat and not need a booster cushion or child seat?
- Can a BRITAX child seat be installed in the rear center seating position using the lower anchors of the outboard seating positions?
