Should I then blame Saab for my driving skills? In the US you would, because some lawyer on TV would be telling you it was the manufacturers fault and you should be compensated, just alittle because the lawyer will take most of the money. Remember the Audi 5000 with the automatics and the hot chocolate formerly sold at McDonalds. The winner is the airbag warnings on the dash, on the back of visors, in the owner's manuals, on the glove box, on the infant car seat box(all sides), on the tags attached to the seat, imprinted on the seat itself, and in the bold letters in the seat manual - yet still people put infant car seats in the front seat of a car with airbags! And they still try to sue the manufacturers of the car and the infant car seat! Stupidity is worth money in the U.S. > > > Johannes > > http://users.surfanytime.co.uk/johs
