Which Clermont Toyota is the family-friendly solution for you? 

Which Clermont Toyota is going to be the best bet for you and your family? ALL of our new Toyota cars are decked out with the LATCH system, which makes it quick and easy to install and uninstall a car seat. However, convenience is also part of car seat safety, and we have several Clermont Toyota that are perfect for family drive time. Here are our top choices: 
  • Toyota Sienna
  • Toyota Highlander
  • Toyota RAV4
  • Toyota Sequoia 
  • Toyota 4Runner 
All of them have spacious backseats and are four-door for easy access to the rear seats and your car seats! 

Explore all of our car seat safety tips! 

We’ve also got tips to help you make the most of car seat safety when you’re behind the wheel… refresh your memory before you hit the road! 
  • Make sure you choose the right car seat to provide the maximum amount of car seat safety in your Clermont Toyota. Children under two should be in rear-facing seats, and then should graduate into front-facing seats until they outgrow them in terms of height and weight. After that, a booster seat should be used to ensure that children can properly wear seatbelts! 
  • You should also buy a NEW car seat. A used car seat may not be structurally sound when the materials age, and if it's been in an accident it may not be safe to utilize anymore. If you want to abide by car seat safety rules, invest in a new car seat for your smaller passengers! 
  • Always put car seats in the backseat. This will afford more protection for your children if you get into a collision – never put a car seat in the front seat. Also, make sure that it's installed correctly in your Clermont Toyota! This is a big part of car seat safety, and if you're not confident about doing it alone, take it to your local police or fire station to have them install it for you! 
  • Remember to be consistent when it comes to car seat safety; always buckle your child in before you leave the house, and wear your own seatbelt to set a good example so that when they graduate out of their booster seat they follow your lead!
