Buying a car is never easy – there is so much to consider in making the best decision for your family. And, one thing we overlooked when we purchased our last car was car seat installation. Believe it or not, there are some makes and models that are BETTER for different car seats!
We made the decision to purchase a van 3 years ago, not knowing that the 3rd row would be nearly impossible to safely install a high back booster seat. At the time, we didn't have any kids in a booster, but once we needed to make that transition it posed a lot of problems with the logistics of where the kids would sit while riding in the vehicle.
Lucky for us, we've since discovered a really great resource through Cars.com. Cars.com has produced an amazing Car Seat Check resource that will make buying our next car much easier. Now, we can research car seat installation in the vehicles we are considering before we make a purchase. You can find the Car Safety Check information here.
While I was on the site – I took a look around some more – they have a ton of really great features and programs, such as:
- Reviews – Their Editorial team tests, reviews and photographs more than 200 cars every year, creating independent and unbiased coverage of the automotive landscape, focusing on consumer advice, trends, and analysis.
- Lessons for first-time Buyers – To help first-time car owners avoid classic mistakes, their editors share their hard-earned wisdom.
- Multicar Comparison – They answer questions like: Which Compact Sedan Has the Most Safety Features? What do you get for $23,000? and other quick compare features.
- American Made Index – Their new 2017 American-Made Index is more comprehensive than ever, so customers are more knowledgeable about what makes an American made car when it comes to their purchase.
