Points to remember

The laws of all 50 states of the U.S.A. as well as Canada now require the use of child restraint systems.

  • Prioritize and observe the warnings, as well as the laws and regulations for child restraint systems.
  • Use a child restraint system until the child becomes large enough to properly wear the vehicle's seat belt.
  • Choose a child restraint system that suits your vehicle and is appropriate to the age and size of the child.
WARNING

■When a child is riding Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

  • For effective protection in automobile accidents and sudden stops, a child must be properly restrained, using a seat belt or child restraint system which is correctly installed. For installation details, refer to the operation manual enclosed with the child restraint system. General installation instruction is provided in this manual.
  • Toyota strongly urges the use of a proper child restraint system that conforms to the weight and size of the child, installed on the rear seat. According to accident statistics, the child is safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat.
  • Holding a child in your or someone else's arms is not a substitute for a child restraint system. In an accident, the child can be crushed against the windshield or between the holder and the interior of the vehicle.

■Handling the child restraint system If the child restraint system is not properly 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 vehicle were to receive a strong impact from an accident, etc., it is possible that the child restraint system has damage that is not readily visible.

    In such cases, do not reuse the restraint system.

  • Make sure you have complied with all installation instructions provided with the child restraint system manufacturer and that the system is properly secured.
  • Keep the child restraint system properly secured on the seat even if it is not in use. Do not store the child restraint system unsecured in the passenger compartment.
  • If it is necessary to detach the child restraint system, remove it from the vehicle or store it securely in the luggage compartment.
