Post subject: Problem finding baby seat to fit Ford Focus
I just can't believe how difficult it is to get a baby seat (with base) which will fit a Ford Focus 02 reg,5 door. Surely this car is one, if not THE, most popular family car?

Can anyone help? We wanted the Graco transport system but the base support bar goes straight down and does not touch the floor of the car. Also the seat belt is too short and I hear it is not recomended to get it made longer.

Focus's are known for the short belts Evil or Very Mad , the britax cosy tot only just fits in a rear side seat, also the britax rock-a-tot should fit on the alternative routing in all 3 rear seats.
Do you have iso-fix in the car?
If you have frontal air bags can the be switched off?
and try the graco in the front seat Exclamation

google Britax car seats - their website has a car checker where they've tested their seats in all the different car types.
