Car crashes are the #1 cause of death in children 1- 13 years old.
Many deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats,
boosters and seat belts.
“As children grow, car seats need to be refitted, adjusted or replaced, depending on their needs,”
says certified installer Sarah Lee Marks, “Our team of volunteers from CCSD School Police,
NHP Command Center, SafeKids Clark County and Car Seats for Christy
are all dedicated to saving lives, one car seat at a time.”

Las Vegas National Seat Check Saturday Event at Findlay VW North Las Vegas

While there is a lot of information available online, trying to understand the often complex diagrams
and instructions from the vehicle owner’s manual to the car seat manufacturer’s instructions can be confusing.
The certified installers will be checking to be sure all car seats are properly fit and secured.
Attendees can drive to the dealership without an appointment, enjoy some refreshment,
and learn handy tips and techniques to getting that seat secured properly,
in the safest position for your child, in your vehicle.

“We will check for recalls, expiration dates, and worn parts,
while providing hands-on education to everyone responsible for
the safe transport of children on our roadways,” Marks continued.

Take a Test Drive for Car Seats for Christy…

Mr. Doug Fleming, Findlay Volkswagen North General Manager announced
additional donations for local charity; Car Seats for Christy,
“We invite everyone in the area to stop by and take a test drive in one of our new,
certified or pre-owned vehicles during the event. Once you complete the behind the wheel vehicle evaluation
Findlay VW North will make a donation to Car Seats for Christy on your behalf.”

Car Seats for Christy was started by co-workers and friends of Southwest Gas employee Christy Barnhart Hebert,
a single mother of two who lost her life in a January 2004 car crash. Her daughters’ lives were spared
thanks to the car seat restraints Christy was so committed to maintaining. As a living tribute to Christy,
her friends continue to promote the message of car seat education and provide restraints to those in need.
Test-drive donations will allow this work to continue. The Car Seats for Christy Foundation, is an 501(c)3 organization.

Buying a Child Car Seat for your Honda-Starts Here!

Pick the Right Child Car Seat for your Car!

When trying to select the correct car seat for your child; infant, rear-facing, convertible, or booster,
there should be one more important step you take before heading to the local baby store or online to place an order.

Buying a Car Seat for your Honda?

Measure your Honda’s rear seat… watch this video…


All too often I see vehicles with:

  • over-sized bolsters in the outboard (left and right rear seat positions),
  • narrow, pronounced humps in the middle of the rear bench
  • back seat cushions with permanently -affixed head rests

any or all of these designs make the proper car seat installation more difficult to secure.

car seat cushion measuring

Measuring for DRIVER safety and comfort.

Another area of concern are new 3-1-One and 4-in-1 convertible car seats
made to accommodate extra wide or tall children as they grow.

  • These over-sized to grown-in often encroach on the best seating position for the driver or front passenger
  • The top of the child car seat cannot fit properly in the space between the sport-style driver
    and front passenger seat where the space is too narrow across.


Check out these videos showing a “COSCO” brand convertible (rear to front facing) child car seat
in the most popular Honda vehicles: Civic, Accord, Odyssey van
and CRV suv. The new Honda Pilot and Ridgeline are large vehicles which accommodate most car seats;
however, the rules of measuring are still valid BEFORE you buy.

2016 Labor Day Car Sales a loser for many.

2016 Labor Day Car Sales a dud.


This year many 2016 Labor Day holiday car shoppers will find frustration over the lack of selection in remaining 2016 models and rare rebates on popular models.

While many car companies have released 2017’s early, the incentives on them are almost non-existent.

For 2016 labor day car sales, you can expect to find limited colors and features in 2016 models and loaded 2017’s in basic colors.

WHY the Low Inventory?

As many auto manufacturers were sure an interest rate increase was coming in January 2016, so the car makers projected a lower demand for new models and scheduled production accordingly.

The rate hike never happened and the economy steamed along. The stock market made money allowing people to feel flush, taking profits for their next car.

Many drivers of 10+ year old vehicles finally tired of repair costs, downtime at the garage and lack of safety features, succumbed to the newest model.

Leasing enthusiasts found out they COULD NOT BUY OUT their car due to recall issues, so  they grabbed the lease on the new car as fast as the model arrived on dealer lots.

In addition, the car loan lenders got busy giving credit at decent rates to those who would not have qualified previously, so the dealer didn’t lose the new 2016 car deal.


Then in February more recalls on TAKATA airbags sent car makers into a frenzy of NO SALE pronouncements on all used and off-lease vehicles involved.

The result was many leased vehicle owners could NOT BUY OUT their cars, and had to lease or buy new.

Hence, lack of used cars available put additional demand on the 2016 car models already limited new car production pipeline.

If you want to know if YOUR trade has a TAKATA airbag, which could reduce the trade-in value, go to this website first.


This year you will find BIG incentives and rebates, low interest rates advertised on the slowest moving, ugliest or most expensive vehicles left on the lot.

In many cases, these are NOT the car you want nor the interest rate you qualify for with your FICO- AUTO credit score.

For 2016 labor day holiday car sales deals I recommend you be ready to be flexible on your needs versus wants in the features, colors and price demands or be willing to wait til 2017’s go on their first sale around Thanksgiving.

I’m NOT saying you should go over your budget, or settle for a color you really detest, because you will be living with if far beyond the euphoria of a great 2016 labor day car sales deal.

Also note, you should probably call the dealer ahead of time to make sure the car advertised on their website is still there. Car are selling so fast, the web can’t keep up with removing sold cars from the internet.

Disclaimer: Sorry to be such a bummer, but I’d rather tell you the truth before you spend hours at the dealership in aggravated frustration or despair.
