    Default Child seats and REAR side air bags

    Hi - does anyone know if it's safe to use rear side air bags with a class 2/3 child seat (ie. age 4-12)? All I can find is the info that rear-facng baby seats shouldn't be used with a front passenger air bag - which is standard knowledge (to those concerned with these things!). But we are wonderring whether the option of having rear side air bags in a VW Golf would enhance safety for the child in the back, in a class 2/3 Isofix seat - or not. Any advice much appreciated - thanks.

    Have a look Here hopefully this will help. Also contact VW and ask what they recommend.

    Default Child seats/airbags

    Many thanks to Sussex Patrol for that reply - the linked report was certainly useful. Unfortunately VW have been entirely useless in answering this query, so I'm grateful to have been able to find info via another route.

    if you pop along to Halfords they will take a look at the car and fixings and give you the recommendations.
