I have a 2 week old and have yet to try out a family ride in the mustang! The carseat fits well in the back but doesn't leave much room for a passenger in the front seat. I figured though we will take my wife's fusion on family outings and just the the mustang for when I have to pick the baby up myself. I'll see how it works out when the wife goes back to work in 2 more months. I figured worse case scenario I would just buy a cheap second car. Good luck.

It's a royal pain in the ***. Main reason we got rid of my wife's.

She went from a f150, to a dodge nitro, to a 3.7 mustang, and then to a 13 explorer

It's a huge pain. IV got a 10 month old who is still in a rear facing car seat, I usally have to put the carseat in and put him in through the passenger side. Then the stroller haha ... It fits Very tightly in the trunk. After all that my wife is pushed up against the dash. Almost sold the mustang bc of it. But when the guy was supposed to come meet me to purchase it I backed out couldn't let it go lol.
& congrats guys on the children they are exciting! Rringler I also have a 2 week old. Can't wait to for her to be out of nicu and bring her home.
(Yes the kids are 10 months apart if you are doing the math lol)

I have a 21 month old and one on the way. It is a bit of a pain because I have the car seat behind the passenger seat and have to push my seat all the forward, fall into the rear driver's side seat while holding her, and try and maneuver her without doing too much damage to her and the car. The car seat also prevents the passenger seat from being able to be adjusted at all. My wife isn't all the way up against the dash, but she is on the shorter side, and still somewhat uncomfortable. I think if the car seat goes in the middle it would prevent that problem, but I'm not sure if the car seat will actually fit in the middle. I'm not sure how it's going to work when we have our other baby. But I am not getting rid of the Mustang. Thank God my wife has a car that works well too.

By chance, was this in Central Florida?

I got my 2011 used from a dealer who stated the previous, original owner had it for its 2000 miles, then traded it in on an Explorer because "his wife hated putting the child/childseat into the back seat of the Mustang".

As far as putting the car seat in the middle it does not sit correctly bc it's not actually a seat but if you where able to make it safe it makes seating worse. Bc you and your wife then have to slide the seat all most all the way forward. I thought it would work also.
I think when the car seat is not rear facing it should get better.
And i have a friend with an older convertible . He had a easier time then us he would drop the top to get the child in and out .

Good to know, thanks! I guess I'll have to trade mine in for a convertible now.

I had a 97 V6 Convertible and like stated above, it was no problem with the top down. I actually drove from TX to PA with my son when he was about 2 1/2. It was pretty ugly with everything else we loaded in there.

I couldn't imagine it in my '14 hardtop though.

Congrats to all you new dads though.

That sounds about right. We just had our first one and took a few trips out in the stang. It's good for around town but could get uncomfortable for the wife for a long trip. By the time we have our second kid we plan on having the wife's car payed off and then buying an SUV. Then I can use the wife's old car when needed and keep the stang for me for around town and our "date nights". Lol

It depends on the size of the couples. I'm 5 7" and my wife is 5 6". My wife sits behind me and takes care of our son in the right rear passenger side. It was awkward to get use to at first but now it doesn't bother us at all. Been doing it for 10 months now and my kid is 23 months old.

At least you did not have to step to a minivan. I smile every weekend when I watch my neighbor load up his three kids into his. I wave to him as I drive off for our weekend morning breakfast run in the Mustang.

The wife and I had a 1987 Monte Carlo SS back when our son was in the child seat.

To add to all of this, I see now where kids have to remain in a special seat until 5 years old? Or is that just Florida?

I would think it to be a royal pain to get little ones in and out of any two door, especially a Mustang.

On a good note, an Explorer beats any minivan by a long shot in the looks department.

My daughter was 2 when I bought my 03 Cobra. When I was at the drag strip people always got a laugh when they looked in the car and saw a car seat in the back seat. I told them I was running full street weight.

I did end up selling it as I got frustrated with the chore of hauling a child in a mustang. Now she's a teenager and I'm a proud owner of another mustang .

It all come down to what works for you and what you are willing to deal with.
