Protecting Smaller Children Accord

If a child is at least one year old and within the weightrange indicated by the childseat manufacturer, the child should be properly restrained in a firmly secured forward-facing childseat.

We strongly recommend placing a forward-facing childseat in a rear seating position. Placing a forward-facing childseat in the front seat can be hazardous, even with advanced front airbags that automatically turn the passenger’s front airbag off. A rear seat is the safest place for a child.


Placing a forward-facing childseat in the front seat can result in serious injury or death if the front airbag inflates.

If you must place a forward-facing childseat in front, move the vehicle seat as far back as possible, and properly restrain the child.
