Install  the  child  restraint  system  in  accordance  to  the  operation
manual enclosed with the child restraint system.
Adjust the head restraint to the
upmost position. 

If the head restraint interferes with
the  child  restraint  system  installa-
tion and the head restraint can be
removed, 

remove 

the 

head

restraint. (

P. 141)

Secure  the  child  restraint  sys-
tem  using  the  seat  belt  or
LATCH anchors.

Open the anchor bracket cover,
latch  the  hook  onto  the  anchor
bracket  and  tighten  the  top
tether strap.

Make  sure  the  top  tether  strap  is
securely latched.

Laws and regulations pertaining to anchorages
The LATCH system conforms to FMVSS225 or CMVSS210.2.
Child  restraint  systems  conforming  to  FMVSS213  or  CMVSS213  specifica-
tions can be used.
This vehicle is designed to conform to the SAE J1819.

WARNING

When installing a booster seat 
To prevent the belt from going into ALR lock mode, do not fully extend the
shoulder belt. ALR mode causes the belt to tighten only. This could cause
injury or discomfort to the child. (

P. 30)

When installing a child restraint system
Follow the directions given in the child restraint system installation manual
and fix the child restraint system securely in place.
If the child restraint system is not correctly fixed in place, the child or other
passengers may be seriously injured or even killed in the event of sudden
braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

If  the  driver’s  seat  interferes  with  the
child  restraint  system  and  prevents  it
from being attached correctly, attach the
child  restraint  system  to  the  right-hand
rear seat.

Adjust the front passenger seat so that
it  does  not  interfere  with  the  child
restraint system.

Only put a forward-facing child restraint
system on the front seat when unavoid-
able.  When  installing  a  forward-facing
child  restraint  system  on the  front  pas-
senger seat, move the seat as far back
as possible even if the “AIR BAG OFF”
indicator  light  is  illuminated.  Failure  to
do  so  may  result  in  death  or  serious
injury if the airbags deploy (inflate).

WARNING

When installing a child restraint system

When a booster seat is installed, always ensure that the shoulder belt is
positioned  across  the  center  of  the  child’s  shoulder.  The  belt  should  be
kept away from the child’s neck, but not so that it could fall off the child’s
shoulder. Failing to do so may result in death or serious injury in the event
of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

Ensure that the belt and plate are securely locked and the seat belt is not
twisted.

Shake the child restraint system left and right, and forward and backward
to ensure that it has been securely installed.

After securing a child restraint system, never adjust the seat.

Follow  all  installation  instructions  provided  by  the  child  restraint  system
manufacturer.

When securing some types of child restraint systems in rear seats, it may
not be possible to properly use the seat belts in positions next to the child
restraint without interfering with it or affecting seat belt effectiveness. Be
sure your seat belt fits snugly across your shoulder and low on your hips. If
it  does  not,  or  if  it  interferes  with  the  child  restraint,  move  to  a  different
position. Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.

Do not use a seat belt extender
If a seat belt extender is used when installing a child restraint system, the
seat belt will not securely hold the child restraint system, which could cause
death or serious injury to the child or other passengers in the event of a sud-
den braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

To correctly attach a child restraint system to the anchors
When using the LATCH anchors, be sure that there are no foreign objects
around  the  anchors  and  that  the  seat  belt  is  not  caught  behind  the  child
restraint.  Make  sure  the  child  restraint  system  is  securely  attached,  or  it
may cause death or serious injury to the child or other passengers in the
event of sudden braking, sudden swerve or an accident.

1-1. For safe use

Exhaust gas precautions

Harmful  substance  to  the  human  body  is  included  in  exhaust
gases if inhaled.

WARNING

Exhaust gases include harmful carbon monoxide (CO), which is colorless and
odorless. Observe the following precautions.
Failure to do so may cause exhaust gases enter the vehicle and may lead to
an accident caused by light-headedness, or may lead to death or a serious
health hazard.

Important points while driving

Keep the trunk lid closed.

If you smell exhaust gases in the vehicle even when the trunk lid is closed,
open the windows and have the vehicle inspected at your Toyota dealer as
soon as possible.

When parking

If  the  vehicle  is  in  a  poorly  ventilated  area  or  a  closed  area,  such  as  a
garage, stop the engine.

Do not leave the vehicle with the engine on for a long time.
If such a situation cannot be avoided, park the vehicle in an open space
and ensure that exhaust fumes do not enter the vehicle interior.

Do not leave the engine running in an area with snow build-up, or where it
is snowing. If snowbanks build up around the vehicle while the engine is
running, exhaust gases may collect and enter the vehicle.

Exhaust pipe
The exhaust system needs to be checked periodically. If there is a hole or
crack caused by corrosion, damage to a joint or abnormal exhaust noise, be
sure to have the vehicle inspected and repaired by your Toyota dealer.

Conditions that may cause the system to malfunction

If the grip portion of the key is in contact with a metallic object

If the key is in close proximity to or touching a key to the security system
(key with a built-in transponder chip) of another vehicle

Engine immobilizer system

The vehicle’s keys have built-in transponder chips that prevent
the engine from starting if a key has not been previously regis-
tered in the vehicle’s on-board computer. 
Never leave the keys inside the vehicle when you leave the vehi-
cle.
This system is designed to help prevent vehicle theft but does
not guarantee absolute security against all vehicle thefts.
