I have a high back, full sized car seat that houses a two year old and a booster with a three year old in it. For those of you who have children or infants, how do you find the back seats work out?
Yes, I felt that way about the headrests in general so it's no problem for me to remove those to better accommodate anyone, kids or not. Also helps for better acess to the strap hooks on the back side of the seats anyway.We don't have children but we babysat my wifes niece and nephew and that's when I realized that the head rest design for the back seats are ridiculous. The kids had plenty of space for their feet but couldn't sit back comfortably because of the way the headrests pushed their heads forward. We ended up just removing the headrests, good thing the kids were short enough to fit below the top of the seat.
that is most certainly true....i cant imagine how poorly some of those cars would do under todays standards. geo metro+suv+coffee drinking, cell phone talking soccer mom=This car is safer than almost anything we were carted around in as kids.
i hate to sound like an a**, but homnestly, i would not put children in the back of a 500..not a a regular basis.
I fondly remember driving to town with my folks driving at normal speed while us kids rode on the tailgate and bounced our feet off the road
Me too. Used to ride to the cottage in the back of an old Ram with my brother. We would have been aroun 8-11 yrs old. 2hr trip, 90-100 kms hr most of the way. Very safe. Now child services will come get you if you let your kids ride an escilator without a helmet and orange vest.
