Mitsubishi Offers Free Car Seat Checks

Mitsubishi's Kids Safety First non-profit group and car seat maker Dorel are setting up free car seat inspections in several states this month.
Kids Safety First hosted a similar event last year and found that 84% percent of child-safety seats were improperly installed or being misused. At this year's event, caregivers will be taught how to properly install a car seat, and unsafe and expired seats will be replaced for free.
Certified child-safety seat installation technicians will be on hand to inspect and reinstall car seats at Mitsubishi dealerships in 11 states: Arizona, California, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas.
Kids Safety First is providing $2,000 grants to local community partners, and Dorel Juvenile Group USA is donating $1,000 worth of car seats for each event. Dorel makes child seats under the Cosco, Safety 1st, Eddie Bauer and Maxi-Cosi brands.
