Ask the Best and Brightest: Kids and Two-Seaters?
March 8th, 2009 1:21 PM Share
I’ve got a question for the best and the brightest-child car seats in two seater cars. I drive a ’06 S2000 and I’m expecting my first child. I’ve read my owner’s manual which foretells doom and gloom for children who ride along. However having ridden in my father’s 190SL extensively (sometime with only meager lap belts holding me), some of these hyper safety warnings ring a little false. If I take the necessary steps to make sure an airbag will not deploy when a child is with me, is the front seat just as safe as the back seat? Or is there another reason children should be in the back seat only? If you post this, in the interests of protecting my mortified wife, please only use my screen nic.

Thirded on the Sienna rec. The owner of SiennaClub.org closed & sold the board, fortunately there's a new community at SiennaChat.
Used E39 M5's are cheap now. I can't think of a better family friendly enthusiast car.
If you’re adding a branch to the family tree, the Toyota Sienna should be on your list to check out. http://www.toyota.com/sienna/ Get one you really like because you’ll find it’s the hot ticket from daycare to K thru 6.
