    Thumbs down Kia Sportage Commercial

    Awful carseat misuse. There is a little girl asleep with a harness so loose she would fly out of the seat because her "chest" clip is at her belly button. Shame on them for not getting with professionals before shooting a commercial.

    I just saw it--very poor example of child "safety." I van't beleive they would show such blatant misuse in a commercial!

    I saw this commercial tonight and was horrified. The looseness was similar to this bad picture from onestepahead.com, but the chest clip was significantly closer to the girl's belly button than her armpits.
