Nissan Does Hard Work and Finds Best Car Seats for its Cars

Not all child-safety seats fit well in all cars and's editors know this very well. We use car seat checks to show consumers how each vehicle handles child-safety seats; so does Nissan. The automaker is the first to perform fit tests of nearly 100 different child-safety seats in almost every vehicle it makes.

"Nissan safety engineers have spent thousands of hours evaluating hundreds of child-safety seats by installing them in all the rear seats of current Nissan and Infiniti vehicles," the automaker said in a statement. 

On Nissan's and Infiniti's Snug Kids websites, parents can find the results of the tests and see which car seats work best in each Nissan vehicle. The site also lists installation tips and how to achieve the best car-seat fit. 

Getting car seats into the car isn't nearly as important as making sure they're installed correctly, however. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the use of car seats reduces traffic fatalities by 71% in infants and 54% in toddlers, but most safety seats aren't installed correctly.

Nissan's Snug Kids site also lists NHTSA's common installation errors. Check out the graphic below for five of the biggest ones.
