Securing a Child Restraint in the
Center Rear Seat Position

secured in the center rear seat, although some of them
will ﬁt there. If the center seat position is too narrow
for your child restraint, secure it in a rear outside seat
If you secure a child restraint in the center seat position,

a Rear Outside Seat Position on page 1-39.
