Windsor helps you put baby and toddler safety first when choosing a family car...

Did you know that up to 80% of child car seats are chosen and fitted incorrectly? The Road Safety Authority has begun to generate awareness of this fact by encouraging parents to educate themselves on how to choose and fit their child’s car seat when researching their next family car purchase.


Purchasing a new car for the family comes with many questions and it is not recommended to purchase child car seats online, so at Windsor we are more than happy to provide Mums and Dads with essential advice and practical demonstrations to fit their chosen child seats at each opportunity.

Always ask the following questions:

  • ‘Is my child seat suitable for my child’s weight?’
  • ‘Does my child seat conform to the most up to date safety standard?’
  • ‘Will the child seat I purchased fit my model of car correctly?’
  • ‘How do I avoid the dangers of placing a rearward facing child seat at the front when there are airbags…’

Once you have answered these sorts of questions you are then more likely to make safer choices for your little ones.

That's why, when you book a test drive at Windsor, we will recommend that you bring your child car seat along and see if it can be fitted safely to your favourite models. What’s more, our experienced sales executives will describe the sort of child seats that are a good fit for a new car of choice, because child car seats are not designed to have a universal fit.
