    Default airbags

    Is it possible to turn the passenger airbag off as my 5 yr old daughter likes to sit in the front on her booster seat

    You allow your five year old to sit in the front?? Seriously?? Fair enough, your child I guess.

    Not something I'd recommend (or do), my two are eight and nine and have never been in the front of a moving car and won't until they're a fair bit bigger yet.

    Not without Tech2 and possible insurance complications.

    Put the little darling in the back out of harms way and stop giving into her requests so easily

    She's forward facing obviously so just slide the seat backwards so she's nowhere near the airbag.

    My 4 year old always sits up front with me, as long as they're nowhere near the airbag what's the problem?

    Yeah I don't see a problem if there's no airbag thats going to go off in her face, there's no difference between the front and back in all fairness when airbags aren't involved

    Up to you guys as I said, it's your kids lives at stake. There's a million and one sites out there detailing why it's safer for kids in the back, so much so that in many american states it's actually a legal requirement up til the age of 12 or reaching a certain height.

    However, no such law exists in this country and it's your own choice and I'm certainly not going to judge you on it. All I know is that my kids will never sit in the front of a car until that sort of age or height.

    Have a quick google round for yourself, first one I came across on a reputable website, statistically rear seats are up to 35 percent safer than front for children, personally I'll take that extra 35% for my kids
