I survived 10 years in the back of my dads 94 before it was sadly stolen. They can work. And they are perfectly safe

I don't imagine a single car seat manufacturer these days approving a side orientation with only a lap belt holding the seat in.

Might be wrong...but I would bet big money it's not allowable anymore.

Car seat in front seat with airbag turned off is all I can picture (depending on height & weight of course).

Not a simple proposition these days.

What about all the ones that didn't and the crash tests that prove it is not safe?

If you go bone crack whores in meth houses with no protection and don't get aids, does that make it safe?

It's not even possible to mount a car seat in the back. End of story. If you say oh you can do it with just a lap belt. Stop. You cant. It's your kids life. If you can't do it properly, you can't do it all. It's physically impossible.

Yea car companies and safety regulations say don't do it. And i didn't say it was a good idea at all. I mean im 19. But if i had kids id buy a Mazda 3 or something with a back seat. I'm just saying they aren't as deadly as people say they are.

I rode in a friend's extended cab ranger with the jump seats one time, I wouldn't want to be in an accident while sitting in one. I wouldn't put a car seat back there.

No, sir. His signature listed an extended cab.
