Car seats in mustangs.

I need opinions on fitting a child's car seat in a '13 model. Is it possible? Anyone had any experience with this before. Thanks for your help.

It's a squeeze. I had my daughters carrier in the back seat but I had to move the passenger seat all the way forward. Even after she got big enough for a forward facing seat, I still had to move the passenger seat forward so she could have some leg room. She's in a booster now and I don't have to move the seat forward anymore.

Mustangs and baby seats don't go together very well. Lol

Yeah, my friend has a toddler. Put the seat in the rear once, such a pain. It was just easier to take her 4 door car than put the seat in my Mustang.

It is a tight squeeze. Had the kiddo in the 07 a couple times and had to move the passenger seat forward and tilt it up. Sometimes I wish I had a Charger SRT8.

Yeah I'm thinking of a trade in. But in terms of driving the vehicle, does it make it harder or impossible to see the right side mirror?

Wasn't an issue for me but you could have another passenger up front. It's not a issue for me because it's not my DD.

Well I would rather have a 425hp Charger than a Buick I guess. A CTS V would be pretty damn sweet.

I take my 10 and 6 yr old girls to school everyday in my 09. My 6 yr old is in a booster seat. It's a tight fit but they would kill me if I traded off their convertible hotrodder.

They are nice, but wait just a few more months for the 2014's to hit the hit lot.
