  • A 2 door car is fine. No laws against that (yet).

  • it is perfectly legal as long as there is sear belts parents do it all of the time. The backseat is the safest place for a carseat.

  • Yes. If the only vehicle you had was a pick-up truck with just one row of seats, then you'd be fine to strap the car seat into one of the front seats, as long as you turn the airbag for that seat off.
