No child seat an­chors

The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

TWOweeks ago I picked up my new D40 Nis­san Navara tur­bod­iesel dual cab and I amvery im­pressed with the way the car drives. It’s a lot bet­ter than my 2006 Rodeo V6, in many ways.

But I amdis­ap­pointed Nis­san do not pro­vide any mount­ing points for child seats in the back, de­spite Nis­san brochures with pho­tos of dad with the wife and kids on the beach and camp­ing in the bush.

I can­not be­lieve our Aus­tralian De­sign Rules do not re­quire th­ese ve­hi­cles to have an­chor points. An ap­proved in­staller has quoted me nearly $600 to get two fit­ted.

I still own a Tri­ton dual cab and a Rodeo dual cab. Both have an­chor points.
