A mum was left furious after her £150 car seat was destroyed on a Jet2 flight back home from a family holiday. Faye Hatton, 34, had landed at Birmingham Airport on Wednesday morning after enjoying a break in Turkey. However when she arrived in the UK she discovered that her Maxi-Cosi Pebble car seat had been broken, Birmingham Live reports . The mum lifted the rear baby seat only to discover the straps had been cut making it unsafe for use. She says the options were to either take a taxi back home or use an old car seat which another passenger had left behind at the airport. The mum-of-three claims the car seat offered to her by the airline was manufactured in 2009. The Royal Society For the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) told BirminghamLive it would align with the advice provided by Good Egg Safety which says car seats should not be used for more than 6-10 years.

Last updated: Dec 9, 2019 at 4:19PMPublished on: Jan 1, 2015 by zwaller With the year coming to a close, we thought it might a good time to look into the hottest cars of the year for consumers on CarGurus. So we dug into our data mines to determine exactly which vehicles were generating the most interest among our users this last year. These are not necessarily the most purchased vehicles, but rather the vehicles most inquired about by CarGurus users. Some of these cars may surprise you (we certainly didn’t expect a few of them), but we suspect some of these vehicles require a bit of research and shopping around before a buyer will commit to a purchase. It doesn’t surprise us to see that some of the less-often-purchased vehicles, like sporty performance cars, are the among the ones most researched. Someone who is serious about buying will probably do all he or she can to weigh the available options against one another before committing to such a big purchase, and we … [Read more...] about CarGurus’ Hottest Cars of 2014

Sep 9, 2015 by tgriffith I don’t eat animals, but I’ll sit on them. I’m a vegetarian, because I happen to believe that a life shouldn’t be taken so that I can eat. This isn’t nearly as controversial today as it’s been in years past, and it’s far easier now to go meat-free than ever. This comes up in conversation quite often, and I have a canned response to inquiries regarding my beliefs. There’s one recent question, though, that tripped me up. “Don’t you have leather seats in your Audi?” Well… *pause* Yes. Yes, I do. And in my Subaru. Apparently I won’t eat animals, but I’ll gladly sit on their flesh. How are vegetarian and vegan car shoppers supposed to handle this? My wife and I both like nice cars. We enjoy high-end autos and try to pick vehicles with all the bells and whistles. It’s nearly impossible to find a car laden with goodies but lacking leather. Leather tends to wrap the steering … [Read more...] about Leather Seats: The Beginning of the End?
