Issue

Certain vehicles with regular or extended cab without a rear seat, and equipped with a front 60/40 split bench seat, fail to conform to Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 210.1 - User-ready Tether Anchorages for Restraint Systems. The child restraint top tether anchor for the front centre seat position in these vehicles is not accessible as required by the Standard. Without the top tether anchor, a child restraint may not be properly secured in the vehicle. Correction: If requested by the customers, dealers will modify the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor. In addition, owner letters will include an Owner Manual Supplement that describes how to install a child restraint using a top tether in the centre seating position.
