Be sure to read the important information and the WARNINGS for important details about children and Advanced Airbags ⇒ Child safety and child restraints .

The Advanced Airbag System in your vehicle has been certified to comply with the requirements of the United States Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208, as well as Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 208 as applicable at the time your vehicle was manufactured. According to requirements, the front Advanced Airbag System on the passenger side has been certified for suppression for infants of about 12 months old and younger and for low risk deployment for children aged 3 to 6 years old (as defined in the standard).

Even though your vehicle is equipped with an Advanced Airbag System, make certain that all children, especially 12 years and younger, always ride on the back seat properly restrained for their age and size. The airbag on the front passenger side makes the front seat a potentially dangerous place for a child to ride. The front seat is not the safest place for a child in a forward-facing child seat. It is a very dangerous place for an infant or a child in a rearward-facing seat.

Danger!

The front seat of any vehicle can be a dangerous place for a child - even with an Advanced Airbag System.
  • If the front airbag inflates, a child or infant who
    • is unrestrained on the front seat,
    • is in an improperly installed forward-facing child restraint on the front seat, or
    • is in any rearward-facing child restraint on the front seat will be seriously injured and can be killed.
  • Even though your vehicle is equipped with an Advanced Airbag System, make certain that all children, especially 12 years and younger, always ride on the back seat properly restrained for their age and size.
  • Always properly install rearward-facing child seats or infant carriers and forward-facing child seats on the rear seat - even with an Advanced Airbag System.
