CHILD SEATS

WARNING

According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats than in the front seat. The air bags alone will not prevent children from being seriously injured or killed. Never place a child in any type of child restraint or booster seat in the front passenger seat. All children age 12 and under should always ride in the back seat.

WARNING

Make sure the child seat fits your child properly. Always check the seat manufacturer's instructions and labels for height and weight limits. For more specific guidance, consult your pediatrician.

There are 3 general types of child restraint systems: Infant seats, toddler seats, and belt-positioning booster seats.

Infants: until at least 1 year of age and at least 20 lbs (9 kg).

Toddlers: until about age 4 and about 40 lbs (18 kg).

Boosters: belt-positioning booster until about age 8 or at least 4 ft 9 inches (145 cm) and seat belt fits properly.

WARNING

Do not allow a baby or infant to be held or carried on the lap. The force of a crash can increase effective body weight by as much as thirty times, making it impossible to hold onto the child. At all times, children should be restrained in age and size appropriate child seats to reduce the risk of death or serious injury in a crash.

WARNING

Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Always follow the instructions that accompany the child seat carefully.

Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by use of the lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap-shoulder belt. Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured.

If it is essential that a child travels in the front passenger seat (and national or state legislation permits this), Land Rover recommends that the following preparations are made before fitting the child restraint.

  • Adjust the front passenger seat fully rearwards.

  • Adjust the lumbar support to its minimum support position.

  • Adjust the seat cushion to its highest position. If cushion front tilt adjustment is possible, adjust it to its lowest position.

  • Adjust the seatback to an upright position to support the child restraint.

WARNING

Extreme hazard! Never place a rearward facing child restraint on the front passenger seat. The infant could be seriously injured or killed if the air bag deploys.

This symbol, affixed to the front door B-post on the passenger side, warns against the use of a rear-facing child seat in the front passenger seat, when a front passenger air bag is fitted and operational.

This label, affixed to the passenger side sun visor, warns against the use of a rear-facing child seat in the front passenger seat, when a front passenger air bag is fitted and operational.
