    Default Signums and baby seats

    Am i right in asking about the rear seat on the Signums, its not a full seat like the Vectra and was wondering where you would put the child seats as mine at the moment sits in the center of the rear seat of my Vectra on the quick release base.

    Just a question i need to bear in mind if i see one i like.

    The outside rear seats are most definitely proper seats. The centre seat is not quite the same, but has a three point seat belt so should be able to secure a child seat. I'm sure somebody on here has put a child seat in the centre seat.

    No me neither, not when there'll be two full size seats available, but I think if you had to the centre seat would be fine, given that it has a full three-point seat belt.

    The only reason i ask and have mine in the center is your not suppose to have them by any airbags according to the instructions and these cars a full of em.... so the center is the best position

    There's a curtain airbag down the sides, but I think that would only help in any collision where they went off and the baby seat was in one of the outer seats.

    It's really the front airbags that come straight out at you that are not good for baby seats - specifically the rear facing seats.

    Theres also the ones in the front seats at the side and didn't really know if that could/would effect anything.

    Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

    I think those ones come forwards to protect just the driver/front passenger - I can't see them going backwards, certainly not enough to be a problem for a baby seat in the rear outside seats.

    I can see the reasoning for having the baby seat in the middle seat. In any side impact it's well away from any intrusions into the passenger compartment i.e. a car hitting the rear doors side on. I'm just not sure how stable the seat will be on that narrower seat - something I'll be looking at in time as we have a baby due in April.

    The outer rear seats have the 'advantage' of having ISOFix points, so they will hold the seat really securely.

    i asked at Mothercare the other day about putting a stage 2 (9months upwards) forward facing seat in the middle on the back of the Vec. They said it was fine, it fitted as well as the outside seats and makes it easier to reach round and adjust the recline or pass a dummy back to her.
    got concerns about a head on impact though as obvioulsy she wouldn't be protected by me / passenger first. I guess its swings and roundabouts, shes better at the side if its a head on and better in the middle if its a side impact.

    According to Vauxhall Liturature, child restraint seats etc should not be used on the centre rear seat of Signum.

    Our Recaro seat goes on the left or the right.
