  • The absolute minimum is 12, providing they are tall and heavy. No younger. I wouldn't even put a 12 year old in the front seat personally.

  • 12 here. I see a lot of moms put their 9-10 year olds in the front and it just makes me nervous. I hope they have their airbags disabled.

  • 12 if you have airbags. Mine turn off if the person in the passenger seat doesn't weigh atleast 120 lbs, so when my 85 lb aunt sits in my front seat the airbag turns off.

  • It's 13. Look underneath the visor in your car. It says "Children 12 and under should ride in the back seat"

  • In my state you are suppose to be 13 to sit in the front seat but I don't even feel comfortable with that. My 13 yr old sd is still only 4 ft 10 and weighs 95 lbs. To me that's too small for the front.

  • I would say 12 if airbags dont turn off if they do then you can have your kids in the front after they get out of boosterseats.
