Most Car Seats Flunked Crash Test At 35 MPH

Consumer Reports did a crash test using several infant car seats. The results showed that most car seats failed disastrously in crashes with speeds as low as 35 mph. The seats came off their bases or twisted. In one case, a test dummy was thrown in mid air.Baby Trend Flex-Loc and Graco SnugRide were the only two that passed all the tests. Consumer Reports wants to see a recall on EvenFlo Discovery. How does knowing this make you feel? Would this make you change car seats?

I've read that MOST carseats are not installed properly, which I truly believe is linked to the fact that many do not function properly in a real life crash.
