  • When I had my first, I had a Camaro, hump in the back between the seats. I had a carseat with the base, it was a tight fit, but do-able. We ended up getting a four door only when his brother came along and we needed more room.

  • I have a Mustang and the carseat will fit in the back seat on the passenger side; however, it is very tight. The hardest part is getting the baby in and out of the car seat because I have to get in the backseat to do this. It definitely gets old. Our baby will be a year old in a few months so we can turn the seat around. That will make it a little easier or so I am hoping. Good luck!!! It definitely is a pain with a 2 door car and a carseat. Our other vehicle is a Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab 4x4 so putting the baby in there is a breeze.

  • Go to the website below, and find a car seat check event near you and have it professionally installed. That's the best, and safest idea.
