The top tether anchors for a sedan or a coupe are under the tether covers, on the rear seatback filler panel. For the wagon, the outboard top tether anchors are under the tether covers behind the rear seatback. The wagon's center top tether anchor is under the tether cover, on the vehicle floor, behind the rear seatback.

Be sure to use an anchor on the same side of the vehicle as the seating position where the child restraint will be placed.

Do not secure a child restraint in a position without a top tether anchor if a national or local law requires that the top tether be attached, or if the instructions that come with the child restraint say that the top tether must be attached.

According to accident statistics, children and infants are safer when properly restrained in a child restraint system or infant restraint system secured in a rear seating position. See Where to Put the Restraint for additional information.
