Improper Use of Child Restraint

  • Follow all child restraint instructions and warnings in this manual.

  1. When using an infant or child restraint system, be sure to follow all manufacturer's instructions on installation and use.
  2. Infants and small children should neither be held on the lap, nor should they share a safety belt with another occupant while the vehicle is in motion.
  3. Children too big for child restraint systems must use regular safety belts. A shoulder belt can be used providing it does not cross the face or the neck of the child.
  4. Choose a child restraint system according to the weight of the child.
  5. Child restraint systems that are damaged or have been heavily stressed in an accident must be replaced immediately.
  6. Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in vehicle.
  7. Do not affix objects to child restraint systems or cover them with other materials.
  • For maximum safety and protection, do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.

Direction of installation for child restraint systems
According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating positions.

Under all normal circumstances, the child seat must be placed in the rear.

  • Do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.

Group 0 and 0+: Children up to 29 lbs (13 kg)
Children of this weight must be transported in a restraint system which is fitted facing backwards.

Group I: Children in between 20 lbs (9 kg) and 40 lbs (18 kg)
Children of this weight are transported in child restraint systems facing forward.

Group II: Children in between 33 lbs (15 kg) and 55 lbs (25 kg)
Children of this weight are transported in child restraint systems facing forward.

Group III: Children in between 49 lbs (22 kg) and 80 lbs (36 kg)
Children of this weight are transported in child restraint systems facing forward.

Using child restraint systems in the front passenger seat

Child Restraint in Front Seat
The use of a child restraint system in the front passenger seat can result in serious personal injury or death to the child from an airbag deployment.

To reduce risk of injury from an inflating airbag in an accident, Porsche strongly recommends:

  • Under all normal circumstances, the child seat must be placed in the rear.
    Do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.

However, there may be serious situations where it might be necessary to place a child in the front seat so that he/she can be kept under direct observation to prevent an immediate risk to the child (for example, while driving to the doctor or hospital). The following instructions are provided to you solely for that purpose.

  • Seek appropriate advice from your authorized Porsche dealer about the possible installation of a Porsche child restraint system.
  • If a child restraint system must be fastened to the passenger's seat, adjust the passenger's seat as far away from the airbag as possible.
  • If emergency or other serious conditions require a child to be placed in the front seat, exercise extreme caution and defensive driving of your vehicle.
