Ha! Funny! I'm reading this and it sounds like your wife is sitting in a booster seat! I think your kidding, right? Or am I reading it wrong? I just woke up, maybe my brain is still asleep!

He's saying that even when his wife rides in the passenger seat, there's still room in the back for his daughter and booster seat! LOL!

Yeah, after I was up for a little while and thought about it, I figured it out. Just picture that, though! Too funny! He was talking about her being 5' 3", I thought he was kidding that she needed a booster seat! Ha!

Or just rip out the waste that is the airbag. I'm sorry I'm very anti airbag especially after the burns and all the crap that got shot into my father's eyes when he was in his accident a few years ago. He was wearing his seatbelt and the airbag literally did nothing but more harm.

But as for this topic, you can pretty much be fine until they hit 10-12 unless you have a freakishly tall kid. My wife's cousin is 14 and we took her somewhere in it and she was fine. She's hitting the 5 foot mark now I think or right around there.

And yeah, you don't have to sell the toys unless you need the money to furnish a nursery or something and I've found that most of the time the mom to be gets everything at the baby shower anyway. Unless the stang is your only car anyway, because a rear racing carseat in one is a no-go. At least in anything before 2005 although I doubt a rear facing seat would fit in there either.

Unhappy Man Up and Car Down.....

So, the Mrs. is 4 months pregnant and reality is starting to set in. I've been window shopping 4-Door vehicles and it's making me sick to my stomach. My last 3 cars have all been mustangs. It's been well over 10yrs since I rolled in anything that's not a Mustang. So, you can imagine my hesitation/unwillingness to easily part ways.

Now everything I'm willing to tolerate as my daily driver is more than I would like to spend a month and I'm not willing to emasculate my daily driving experience to the point of depression. Yes, somewhat selfish. But I'm serious and at the end of the day a happy home is the most important. Plus the Mrs. is a banker and spending more on a car switch that I've been in a little over a year is ridiculous spending to her.

So here is the real question for the Mustang owning parents. At what age is it not practical to have your child in the back seat in a car seat. I understand it can be cramped getting in and out, but that's something I can deal with. I'm a firefighter on 24 shifts, so having to get my kid in and out on a daily basis will never be an issue. So when people talk about how unpractical it is, does that have to do with it being the main family car, or just being annoyed by the lack of backseat space as the child gets older. We are a two vehicle family with the Mrs. in a 2012 Camry

Preach to me!!!!!!
This is a No Brainer. First time your wife has to borrow your Mustang because her car is in the shop.....She will be THANKING you many times while she tries to put your child in the back seat.

Put your ego in check and do the right thing. Either buy a decent four door vehicle and keep the Mustang. Otherwise sell the Mustang and buy a Nicer four door.

This is called sacrificing for your family. Otherwise, after the divorce papers are served, you will be getting a really run down vehicle, so you can pay alimony, child support, house support (for a house that you don't get to live in anymore), etc.....

"I'm not willing to emasculate my daily driving experience to the point of depression."

YOU were EMASCULATED the day you said; "I DO!"

Like I said, if the stang is your only car it has to go if you have a kid just for safety reasons. But if not the only car just take her car when you go places with the kid.

Me, my wife, and 9 year old daughter all 3 get around just fine in the shelby. If we need more room or have more people going, we take her Ford edge. Big bubbles, little troubles. Keep the pony.

You missed the point with your analysis Ubngit. He will have a newborn. Pretty sure he or she will need a little help in getting into the baby seat. If he had a nine year old daughter, she could get in by herself. Not the wife having to bend over, holding up the seat and leaning to get the child into the baby seat.

Wow... talking about not being able to fit a rear facing carseat in the back of a Mustang. Which you can't do. At least not in a fox/SN95. I drive my 5 year old to pre-school every day its nice out in my 98 because the booster fits fine.

So yes, safety reasons if you have an infant who needs a rear facing seat and you only have a Mustang.

Lol please post pics. I barely fit a good rear facing seat in my old SVT Contour which was a 4 door with something resembling legroom. 0 way in hell it would work in a 94-04. Maybe a S197 and if it does then go for it.

Note, as soon as you can flip the seats around so they are facing the right way it is not an issue anymore.

Lol. Clearly you've never tried!.. Plus I never said it was an easy fit, just not impossible like you keep saying!.. By the way, last I checked a Ford Contour is not a Ford Mustang!.. So why even com pair the two?...

And ya I'm sure your now going to come back with, "I've actually did try to fit one in my Mustang!.. And there's no way you did because it just won't fit!.." Or something along those lines!.. Don't bother!.. Your argument is invalid!.. I've done it twice!..

Sorry for you missing my analogy sir. My daughter wasn't born at 9. She was an infant in a car seat being placed in the back of a 97 cobra. If OP likes his car enough, he can make it work. If not, trade it for a station Wagon.

I did try to put the rear facing Graco and Britax setups we had in my 95 Cobra (same as my 98) just for giggles when I had it. If I folded the front seat forward it would fit and that's it. YMMV with a different seat I guess. I was not about to have the airbag go off in an accident and fling the seat right into my kid's head if I left it leaning forward like that.

But the point is moot because I'm not sure who the hell has a single Mustang as their only car if they have a family anyway lol.

edit: And I compared the CSVT to the Mustang because the CSVT had more room and DID fit the rear facing seats although just barely.

I converted an 89 turbo rx-7 to a 2+2 so I could haul my little kids around, then a civic hatch for many years, and my two kids are always with me. They were psyched when I bought a beater pilot for this winter, very glad I did, but now my son, almost 13, wants to ride in the 'cool' cars to soccer practice. People in Europe drive tiny cars and have children, its harder, but so worth it. I want a mustang because I want a BIGGER car for my kids to ride in more comfortably. More than two kids would be a pain. Buy a beater, use the Camry, or start yoga.

I can attest to the size of European vehicles. $10/gallon equivalent will do that...
