It’s always best to put the child restraint systems in the rear seats. However, if you have to put a child restraint system in the front passenger seat, make sure that it’s not a rear-facing restraint. A rear-facing restraint in the passenger seat can cause serious damage or fatalities in the event of an accident, because of its proximity to the airbag.
