    Looking For: Response to We did not have these when I was young.

    I know there was an advocate, or tech that had a story about going to a store with her child. There was a gentleman that talked her her about car seats, and he was one that had a son die years ago as there was not restraints then. Can anyone point me out to that thread, and or person please.

    Looking For: Response to We did not have these when I was young.

    I know I have seen a great response for the old "We did not have car seats when I was little, and I was fine." The response was an older gentleman that was saying how his son was one that could not respond, as he did not survive. Anyone have that?

    Built in child restraints

    I know some older vans have built in child restraints in the captain chairs. Am wondering are vans still doing this? Anyone know the rated limits on these? From what I understand, they are short.

    Kia Sedona?

    Pros? Cons? I will likely only need at max two top tethers, so no worries on those. What are safety ratings like compared to other vans? As much as I would love a new Sienna or Oddy, that will likely not be in the cards. The kia would be almost $8k less for brand new.
