We live in Texas and are expecting another baby in July. We’ll be getting another car but need one with rear air-vents because the baby seat will be rear-facing, and needs to get conditioned air… a little backstory: when we moved here my daughter was a baby and had to go to the hospital for heat stroke after her rear facing car seat became too hot (extremely scary time). No configuration of the vents could get it cool enough in the back, so we ended up facing her forward at about 18 months. Not an option for a newborn, and anyway, I’d like to rear-face my kiddos for two years for safety’s sake. For this car we will have two car seats in the back, one forward and one rear-facing.
We are looking primarily at new cars because it seems like the used car market is pretty pricey, and interest rates are quite a bit higher.
So, does anyone know if there are any smaller SUVs or cars that have rear air vents? I know the minivans and 7-passanger SUVs usually have them, but that seems like too much car for me (obviously not a true “Texan” speaking).
