Failing to place your child in their car seat properly can leave them vulnerable in an event of an accident. If you have questions or concerns you can always contact the NHTSA, who has check stations for your child's car seat around the country. Would you like some helpful tips when putting your child in their safety seat? At MINI of Portland, we want you to be as informed as possible, so here are a few tips to help you keep your kid safe and comfortable.

Use Instructions On Car Seat

Remember to read the guidelines before installing the car seat. Whether you are using the existing anchors or the seatbelt, make sure you check your work after. Additionally, only install a child's car seat into the back seats of your vehicle, never the front.

Snug But Not Tight

Make sure your child is strapped in snug but not tight. This will help keep your child's car seat anchored properly in your vehicle. To test drive a great family car, visit MINI of Portland today for more options.
