2015 Nissan Rogue- 2nd row center contradiction?

My Rogue's manual first says "Do not secure a child restraint in the 2nd row center position using the LATCH system anchors. The child restraint will not be secured properly." But then 7 pages later, it shows you how to install a forward facing child restraint using the LATCH system anchors and the roof tethering system. These contradict one another, and I do not know which to follow. My child is still rear facing at 18 months, but everything I have read on the LATCH anchor systems is that if it's approved for forward facing, it's approved for rear facing. Our car seat is approved for LATCH anchors wider than the standard 11" distance. Has anyone figured out what the manual truly means in regards to the center position?

Hi! I checked with the LATCH Manual, a resource for CPSTs, which gets info directly from vehicle manufacturers. It confirms that you only have a tether anchor center, not lower anchors, in a 2015. The instructions on the later page may be meant for the outboard seating positions. To use the center, you should use the seatbelt to install (and the tether anchor with the seatbelt in a few years when she turns.)
