My husband is shopping for cars, and he is totally set on a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. He has drooled over this car for years. (Poor thing, he's a total car nut and he drives an old Corolla!) He wants something sporty, and my only requirement was four door so LO could fit in the back seat. I have been in the back seat of an Evo, they're tiny! I'm worried the car seat won't fit. I guess I have a two-part question.
First, is it safe to install the rear-facing infant car seat in the middle of the back seat? I've only ever seen people install them on either side. (And in my car she will be on the driver side so I can see her in the rearview + backseat mirror).
Second, if it doesn't fit, should he get a totally different car? I am worried baby will end up on the passenger side in the back, and I will be sitting at a funny angle with my knees in the dash so he can get this car that he has dreamed about for years. The last thing in the world I want is to tell him no, but I'm concerned that it won't be comfortable/safe.
Honestly we may pull a little from savings, go buy our travel system, and take it with us to the dealership tomorrow. Could be that it's a non-issue. Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or maybe a bit of advice?
