I just noticed in my 97 golf that there is no spot for me to attach a car seat. Do i have to bring it in for mods or is there a quick fix kinda thing for this?

what do you mean? if there is a seatbelt you can hook a carseat up to it. In my RSX there is no middle seat, just some plastic thing to keep people off of sitting there (its due to the weight limit of the car, cant put three peeps back there I guess). So I put my daughter on the pass side forward facing...

It also has to be hooked onto the tether anchor, Which the car does not have.

I drive a 97 golf and I think you mean those spots to attatch seat belts around on the car its self somewhere. I never seen them. All we have is the seats, seatbelts and buckles. :D

My nephews seat has little hooks near where his hands would rest that we just use to put the seatbelt through. Then put the driver or passanger seat all the way back to told the car seat more sequre.

If the car dosen't have tethers you can just use the seat belt... read the manual that came with the seat!

i've been hearing that its the law in Manitoba. Using just the seat belt is not good enough.

I'm just hoping it'll be a big hassle, so i can convince the woman to get a different vehicle :)

sorry, i worded that wrong. i bought it from the US. It's all in miles and junk.

But i know what you mean, thats why im thinking theres something i can just install and have it be all good.
