I'm so proud of the work +Jennifer Geiger and I do for +Cars.com. However, I won't deny that there's occasional swearing when installing car seats in some of our test cars. 
In 2012, Jennifer Geiger and I installed child-safety seats into 83 cars as part of our Car Seat Check series. This year, we're already at 53 installs, and there are plenty of days left in 2013. Jennifer and I are both certified child safety seat technicians. We underwent 40 hours of training ...

What an exciting auto show! Check out what Cars.com's editors thought of the cars that made their debut at the 2012 New York auto show.
WLAltima. Many of the press conferences at this year's New York auto show were packed with multiple debuts, as if the automakers knew this was their last opportunity to make a splash before the su...

Due to a childhood filled with station wagons (courtesy of my parents), I'm not much of a wagon fan. However, I do like the looks of this Outback with its dark blue paint and body cladding. Read on to find out how it performed in our Car Seat Check.
With its sporty looks, the 2012 Subaru Outback challenges compact crossovers for the hearts and minds of families. That may be overstating things a little, but the Outback seats five, has a roomy back...

I try to convince people it's a wagon, an mostly they don't believe me.

Either way, it's a great car, with or without offspring.

The best-selling Toyota Camry is put through its paces for +Cars.com Car Seat Check.
The front seats are adjusted to a comfortable position for a 6-foot driver and a 5-foot-8 passenger. The three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat sits behind the driver'...

Another SUV that can't fit three car seats across the back row.
At 76 inches across, the 2012 Ford Edge is wider than its competitors, the Nissan Murano, Dodge Journey and Toyota Highlander, but not wide enough to fit three child-safety seats across the second row...

This British study says women are better at parking than men. Thoughts? If I can pull into a parking spot, I'm an excellent park-er. When it comes to parallel parking, I'm still horrible after all these years.
The verdict is in, at least in the United Kingdom: Women are better car parkers than men. A parking lot company in the U.K. called National Car Parks conducted a monthlong study in which it evaluated ...

It's fun to imagine what I'd buy/do if I won the gigantic Mega Millions jackpot. I asked my +Cars.com coworkers to share their dream cars in this story. As for me, I'm still mulling it over.
The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has hit a record $500 million and it's still growing. With just one more day before Friday's drawing, plenty of people are standing in line to buy a ticket an...

Trying to install car seats with this SUV's Latch system was so frustrating. The Latch system is supposed to make it easier for parents to correctly install car seats. We couldn't even access the lower Latch anchors.
Cars.com's team of car-seat installers was foiled by the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover. Three people attempted to use the luxury SUV's Latch anchors to install our child-safety seats, but there ...

The 2012 Land Rover LR4 makes our (short) list of cars that can fit three car seats in the second row.
UPDATE: Parents are often searching for the automotive holy grail: a car that's not a minivan and can fit three child-safety seats across the backseat. It's a short list. In the nearly two yea...
