Welcome, Had a car seat in my bee for my granddaughter. She loves riding in it because of how high it sits compared to a car.

Car seats are easy setup in this truck .They have the metal hooks for rear facing car seats on the passenger seat and have the front facing car seat strap connection behind the middle seat on the back in the storage area. Both of my boys road with me in there rear facing seat. Now I take them riding with my older son booster seat in the passenger seat and my youngest son in the middle seat with his full car seat. No issues with either ridding at the same time. The only problem is that my wife wants to come sometimes and she is left out because of the obvious Smile no room.

Pros:
-Great truck.
-No major issues even after the performance upgrades I have done.
-Gets good gas MPG to me when I was stock.
-Head Turner

Cons:
-Just a standard SLT/Sport truck with a sticker/image package, I wish they would of made the performance in-tune with with name. I guess that is why I have done what I have done to my truck Smile
-other than that I have not other Cons

Window sticker says 13...17 mpg. I dont drive highway too much which is why my mileage is so low....plus the suoercharger prolly has something to do with it.

Welcome.

I average around 10 mpg in town and around 16 mpg on the highway with my Daytona, but I have a heavy foot.

I love s2000. If I was single I would be all over one Smile

When stock I was averaging about 12-13 in the city and about 17-19 on the highway.

Now that I have added a cam I average about 9 in the city and 10-12 on the highway.

I do my calculation based off manual calculations and not by the overhead. The overhead was always off.

What is a DSP? I probably know but the acronym is not coming to me.
