    uh... I was driving a 400hp beast.. tampa, cocoa/melbourne and all around O-town. I never had any trouble just letting them go. Granted, those same retards are why I'll never put gauges on a pillar pod ever again.. but maturity trumps stupid every day of the week.

    I really think people are missing the point out there so let me clear it up. the baby on board sign works FOR ME!!!!! no one said that that elimanates the urge to street race. But for me I have noticed that people do not try to race me anymore. And if you were going to race with a child in your car you are stupid and dont deserve to have that child in your hands POINT BLANK.

    so how did this thread get so far off the topic of whether the sedan or hatch would be better suited to family use?

    the op has obviously chosen the wrx... its safe, its flexible.. its a good car.


    If some of you are that concerned with YOUR lack of ability to handle the retardation around you (its never ending, I'm sure you just dont notice most of it)
    then you need to stay home or take the bus. Figure some other way to transport your children because apparently you're not mentally tough enough to keep them as safe as possible on your own.

    There are drunks and racers and drug addicts and blind people and old people and all kinds of other terrible drivers out there. Ya gonna put something on your car for each one in hopes it will help?? NO punk as kid is going to make the decision not to be a retard based solely on a sticker or sign. NO ONE should make a vehicle purchase decision based on how OTHERS will act around them. Thats just plain stupid. Get the vehicle that serves YOUR purposes/needs and wants to its best ability and move on with your agenda.

    Done.

    I have tinted windows so other kids who want to rev their engine at me have no idea that i'm carrying kids around. A kid on board sign may help back people off, I think I might get me one.. either way I just don't race even if they want to.

    You should only race with kids in the car in a school zone. Everyone knows this.

    I'll prefer to WRX, this is why because It have dual characteristic one this is looks like an executive car second you can also ride it for domestic purpose.
    Anyway Sedan have their own value and worth I don't negate the value of Sedan.

    Congratulations on your new addition.

    Rear facing car seats are the devil.

    If you are short its no big deal but the footprint of every rear facing car seat, which is the law for the first year, is obnoxiously big. Take your car seat when you are checking out new cars and test fit, center seat is safest position (according to some crash testers) but not always viable if you (or your wife) are tall.

    Bigger car isnt always better. There was more room for a car seat in the back of my Impreza OBS than there was in my wife's Jeep Wrangler 4dr... and it is a massive thing. The impreza is a great fit once you can switch to forward facing but it is really snug till then.
    Not as many parts left over this time... what am I missing?

    I can rant about the rear facing car seat fitting in cars for years to come...

    I want to get a 2015 Subaru WRX but I need to satisfy the wife about being able to place a Chicco car seat. Sadly as we all know, it needs to be rear facing first before I can finally turn that bad boy around.

    Would this fit in a 2015 Subaru WRX? We don't have the baby yet but if I am buying new and we are planning on having kids in a year or two...I need to satisfy this.

    I was also reading the sticky notes and it said to bump an old thread instead of creating a new one. So...deal with it please.

    I had an '08 WRX sedan when I had my first kid, and bought a '15 WRX sedan 3 weeks before having my second. We have a Forester for bigger trips, but I can do most other stuff in the WRX. Do you have another vehicle?

    Yes 2014 Chevy Equinox, which will work for the long haul...but how much space is left for the passenger with said baby seat there? She wants to be able to use both cars to help the mileage on her whip. I even volunteered to sit behind the driver (my wife)...as she is 5'6~...so I would have room. (I'm 5'11) She's smaller so I figured maybe she could fit up front?

    I watched this video but I would still rather have a larger audiences opinions:

    PS-That's a nice looking white WRX.

    Help me get that WRX I wanted since I was 16 (now 29).
