Lightbulb Rear facing child seat

https://www.cdc.gov/features/passengersafety/index.html


"Use a rear-facing car seat from birth until ages 2–4. For the best possible protection, infants and toddlers should be buckled in a rear-facing car seat, in the back seat, until they reach the maximum weight and/or height limits of their car seat."

yup this has been thrashed out ad nauseum on the other thread, but I haven't heard yet any factual evidence why:

1) bucket seats are somehow inherently more dangerous than regular seats, and
2) that the air bags somehow aren't disabled on the GT cars even though the light says they are and by law they have to deactivate to be able to sell the car in the first place

That’s specific to full buckets. OP has sofas.

1) I would also love to know the answer; however, I had to purchase a car optioned with sofas. Bucket seats are great for the cool factor, but I like my child more. Perhaps they never went through crash testing with a child seat? I'm only speculating, either way, it wasn't worth the risk
2) I can confirm the air bag disabled light is on while my 30lb child is in the car
