We had to upgrade Kaylee’s car seat last month. She was getting longer than the car seat was and we decided that she needed a grow with me style convertible seat. We went from the infant carrier style car seat to a Diono rxt convertible car seat. She will not need another car seat unless the one she has gets damaged in an accident.

Certified child passenger safety technicians conduct hands-on tests of a car’s Latch system and check the vehicle’s ability to accommodate different types of car seats.

I had no idea that was more than just looking at buying and selling cars. You can also go to and put in the make and model of your car and it will pull up car seat checks if they have been done. You can see how the vehicles rank by grade on having all the different kinds and styles of car seats and booster seats in them. I put in the Honda Odyssey to see how my minivan ranked for car seat checks. I was happy to see that the Honda Odyssey got all A’s and B’s on the car seat check.

My minivan was bought new by me back in 2008. It has a lot of miles on it (more than 150,000). I spend many hours a day, 5-7 days a week in “bluebelle” and most days I have at least one if not all four of the kids with me. It is about time that I have been thinking about upgrading my ride to something newer. Once we decide on a make and model I will be checking back in to the car seat check to make sure that the new vehicle is on the A/B honor roll as well. I can’t control 100% of things while we are on the road but knowing that my kids are safely in their seats and buckled in is one thing that I can control. I want the best for my kids and car seat safety is definitely no exception.

How does your current vehicle rank on the car seat safety check?
