FRONT-SEAT ACTIVE HEAD RESTRAINTS WARNING ∙ Always adjust the head restraints properly as specified in this section. Failure to do so can reduce the effec tiveness of the active head restraint. ∙ Active head restraints are designed to supplement other safety systems. Al ways wear seat belts. No system can prevent all injuries in any accident.

1-14 Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

∙ Do not attach anything to the head restraint stalks. Doing so could impair active head restraint function. The active head restraint moves forward utilizing the force that the seatback re ceives from the occupant in a rear-end col lision. The movement of the head restraint helps support the occupant’s head by re ducing its backward movement and help ing absorb some of the forces that may lead to whiplash-type injuries. Active head restraints are effective for col lisions at low to medium speeds in which it is said that whiplash injury occurs most. Active head restraints operate only in cer tain rear-end collisions. After the collision, the head restraints return to their original positions. Properly adjust the active head restraints as described in this section. SEAT BELTS PRECAUTIONS ON SEAT BELT USAGE If you are wearing your seat belt properly adjusted and you are sitting upright and well back in your seat with both feet on the floor, your chances of being injured or killed in a collision and/or the severity of injury may be greatly reduced.

WARNING SEAT BELT MAINTENANCE CHILD SAFETY WARNING

∙ Only NISSAN seat belt extenders, made by the same company which made the original equipment seat belts, should be used with NISSAN seat belts. ∙ Adults and children who can use the standard seat belt should not use an extender. Such unnecessary use could result in serious personal injury in the event of an accident. ∙ Never use seat belt extenders to in stall child restraints. If the child re straint is not secured properly, the child could be seriously injured or killed in a collision or a sudden stop. ∙ To clean the seat belt webbing, apply a mild soap solution or any solution rec ommended for cleaning upholstery or carpet. Then wipe with a cloth and allow the seat belts to dry in the shade. Do not allow the seat belts to retract until they are completely dry. ∙ If dirt builds up in the shoulder belt guide of the seat belt anchors, the seat belts may retract slowly. Wipe the shoulder belt guide with a clean, dry cloth. ∙ Periodically check to see that the seat belt and the metal components, such as buckles, tongues, retractors, flexible wires and anchors, work properly. If loose parts, deterioration, cuts or other damage on the webbing is found, the entire seat belt assembly should be re placed. Do not allow children to play with the seat belts. Most seating positions are equipped with Automatic Locking Re tractor (ALR) mode seat belts. If the seat belt becomes wrapped around a child’s neck with the ALR mode activated, the child can be seriously injured or killed if the seat belt retracts and becomes tight.

If the seat belt cannot be unbuckled or is already unbuckled, re lease the child by cutting the seat belt with a suitable tool (such as a knife or scissors) to release the seat belt. Children need adults to help protect them. They need to be properly re strained. In addition to the general information in this manual, child safety information is available from many other sources, includ ing doctors, teachers, government traffic safety offices, and community organiza tions. Every child is different, so be sure to learn the best way to transport your child.

Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system 1-25

There are three basic types of child re straint systems: ∙ Rear-facing child restraint ∙ Forward-facing child restraint ∙ Booster seat The proper restraint depends on the child’s size. Generally, infants up to about 1 year and less than 20 lbs. (9 kg) should be placed in rear-facing child restraints. Forward facing child restraints are available for chil dren who outgrow rear-facing child re straints and are at least 1 year old. Booster seats are used to help position a vehicle lap/shoulder belt on a child who can no longer use a forward-facing child restraint. WARNING Infants and children need special pro tection. The vehicle’s seat belts may not fit them properly. The shoulder beltmay come too close to the face or neck. The lap belt may not fit over their small hip bones. In an accident, an improperly fit ting seat belt could cause serious or fa tal injury. Always use appropriate child restraints. All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories require the use of approved child restraints for infants and small children. For additional information, refer to “Child re straints” in this section. A child restraint may be secured in the ve hicle by using either the LATCH (Lower An chors and Tethers for CHildren) system or with the vehicle seat belt. For additional information, refer to “Child restraints” in this section. NISSAN recommends that all pre-teens and children be restrained in the rear seat if available (Crew Cabmodels). Stud ies show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. This is especially important because your vehicle has a supplemental re straint system (air bag system) for the front passenger. For additional informa tion, refer to “Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)” in this section. INFANTS Infants up to at least 1 year old should be placed in a rear-facing child restraint. NISSAN recommends that infants be placed in child restraints that comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You should choose a child restraint that fits your vehicle and always follow the manufacturer’s instruc tions for installation and use. SMALL CHILDREN Children that are over 1 year old and weigh at least 20 lbs. (9 kg) should remain in a rear-facing child restraint as long as pos sible up to the height or weight limit of the child restraint. Children who outgrow the height or weight limit of the rear-facing child restraint and are at least 1 year old should be secured in a forward-facing child restraint with a harness. Refer to themanu facturer’s instructions for minimum and maximum weight and height recommen dations. NISSAN recommends that small children be placed in child restraints that comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You should choose a child restraint that fits your vehicle and al ways follow the manufacturer’s instruc tions for installation and use.

1-26 Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

LARGER CHILDREN Children should remain in a forward-facing child restraint with a harness until they reach the maximum height or weight limit allowed by the child restraint manufac turer. Once a child outgrows the height or weight limit of the harness-equipped forward facing child restraint, NISSAN recommends that the child be placed in a commercially available booster seat to obtain proper seat belt fit. For a seat belt to fit properly, the booster seat should raise the child so that the shoulder belt is properly positioned across the chest and the top, middle por tion of the shoulder. The shoulder belt should not cross the neck or face and should not fall off the shoulder. The lap belt should lie snugly across the lower hips or upper thighs, not the abdomen. A booster seat can only be used in seating positions that have a three-point type seat belt. The booster seat should fit the vehicle seat and have a label certifying that it complies with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. A booster seat should be used until the child can pass the seat belt fit test below: ∙ Are the child’s back and hips against the vehicle seatback? ∙ Is the child able to sit without slouch ing? ∙ Do the child’s knees bend easily over the front edge of the seat with feet flat on the floor? ∙ Can the child safely wear the seat belt (lap belt low and snug across the hips and shoulder belt across mid-chest and shoulder)? ∙ Is the child able to use the properly ad justed head restraint/headrest? ∙ Will the child be able to stay in position for the entire ride? LRS2690 If you answered no to any of these ques tions, the child should remain in a booster seat using a three-point type seat belt. NOTE: Laws in some communities may follow different guidelines. Check local and state regulations to confirm your child is using the correct restraint system before traveling.

The child could be seriously injured or killed in a sudden stop or collision. ARS1098 WRS0256 PRECAUTIONS ON CHILD RESTRAINTS WARNING ∙ Failure to follow the warnings and in structions for proper use and installa tion of child restraints could result in serious injury or death of a child or other passengers in a sudden stop or collision: – Do not install rear-facing child re straints in the driver’s side rear seating position. 1-28 Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

– For forward-facing child seats and boosters, DO NOT install if the child restraint base extends past the forward edge of the seat cushion. – The child restraint must be used and installed properly. Always fol low all of the child restraint manu facturer’s instructions for installa tion and use. – Infants and children should never be held on anyone’s lap. Even the strongest adult cannot resist the forces of a collision. – Do not put a seat belt around both a child and another passenger. – NISSAN recommends that all child restraints be installed in the rear seat. Studies show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. If you must install a forward facing child restraint in the front seat, refer to “Forward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” in this section. – Even with the NISSAN Advanced Air Bag System, never install a rear facing child restraint in the front seat. An inflating air bag could se riously injure or kill a child. A rear facing child restraint must only be used in the rear seat. – Be sure to purchase a child re straint that will fit the child and ve hicle. Some child restraints may not fit properly in your vehicle. – Child restraint anchorages are de signed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circum stances are they to be used to at tach adult seat belts, or other items or equipment to the vehicle. Doing so could damage the child re straint anchorages. The child re straint will not be properly in stalled using the damaged anchorage, and a child could be se riously injured or killed in a collision. – Never use the anchor points for adult seat belts, or other items. – A child restraint with a top tether strap should not be used in the front passenger seat (King Cab® models). – Keep seatbacks as upright as pos sible after fitting the child restraint. – Infants and children should always be placed in an appropriate child restraint while in the vehicle. ∙ When the child restraint is not in use, keep it secured with the LATCH system or a seat belt. In a sudden stop or col lision, loose objects can injure occu pants or damage the vehicle. CAUTION A child restraint in a closed vehicle can become very hot. Check the seating surface and buckles before placing a child in the child restraint.

This vehicle is equipped with a universal child restraint anchor system, referred to as the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system. Some child restraints include rigid or webbing-mounted attach ments that can be connected to these an chors. For additional information, refer to “LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system” in this section. If you do not have a LATCH compatible child restraint, the vehicle seat belts can be used. Several manufacturers offer child re straints for infants and children of various sizes. When selecting any child restraint, keep the following points in mind: ∙ Choose only a restraint with a label cer tifying that it complies with Federal Mo tor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 or Cana dian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213. ∙ Check the child restraint in your vehicle to be sure it is compatible with the vehi cle’s seat and seat belt system. ∙ If the child restraint is compatible with your vehicle, place your child in the child restraint and check the various adjust ments to be sure the child restraint is compatible with your child. Choose a child restraint that is designed for your child’s height and weight. Always follow all recommended procedures. ∙ If the combined weight of the child and child restraint is less than 65 lbs. (29.5 kg), you may use either the LATCH anchors or the seat belt to install the child restraint (not both at the same time). ∙ If the combined weight of the child and child restraint is greater than 65 lbs. (29.5 kg), use the vehicle’s seat belt (not the lower anchors) to install the child restraint. ∙ Be sure to follow the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions for installa tion. All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories require that infants and small children be restrained in an approved child restraint at all times while the ve hicle is being operated.
