Airbags shouldn't deploy from the rear impact. Front airbags should deploy from front hit, and side airbags will deploy from a side impact (on the side of impact).

I think a malfunctioning airbag will trigger a light on the dash, but you can ask a dealership to run diagnostics if you are worried.

The rear seat is considered to be the safest place for child seats.
