What is a Rear Facing Car Seat?

Answers From The Expert

Safety educator and advocate, Stephanie Tombrello, tells Autobytel about rear facing only seats. Many have detachable bases and all have 5-point harnesses. Setting the angle on a rear facing car seat is very important on smaller babies but as they grow older, the seats can be adjusted to sit more upright.

Stephanie also reminds us that filling out the registration form with a new car seat is very important, in case a car seat is recalled.
