My husband has cheerfully driven a minivan for years, while I have gratefully managed to stay in a small crossover SUV that seats 5 passengers. But now, faced with the prospect of trying to fit three car seats across my back seat, I’m realizing that our expanding family may require me to reevaluate my wheels. So I took to the internet to research other options. I was frustrated that the car shopping comparison sites don’t offer the stats that are relevant for a mom. Finding out the number of LATCH connectors in a car, for instance, is virtually impossible without digging deep into each car manufacturer’s website.
But then I found a fabulous site, motherproof.com. If you’re in the market for a car, this is a great resource. They review many family-friendly car models, road testing them with kids in tow, and offering all the vital stats that every mom wants to know, including a count of LATCH connectors and even a fun factor rating, which deep down is all I really care about.
