I can't figure out how he did it with backseats that small (a VW Beetle and BMW 325), but DT reader John managed to conceive two kids, and now he's got himself a dilemma: "We have a Graco Snug Ride and a Britax Roundabout and they have to be installed rear-facing. These seats are huge.
"I am no giant, but at 6' 1" I cannot even sit in front of the baby car seats - without my knees touching the dash.
"Will it get any better in an Accord, Passat, Volvo etc. ?? I cannot be the only one with this problem."
I'm a coupe man myself, and it already got much better last month when we went from rear-facing to forward-facing. And the Camry we just rented in Idaho felt like an auditorium, so I'd wager that almost any full-size four-door will solve the front legroom problem.
The real question, then, is how badly do you want to hold onto those rides from your swingin' child-free days?
