Having kids affects, or probably should affect, pretty much every part of your life. Everything from how patient you are to the grade of heroin you use or the car you choose to own and drive. Common wisdom likes to hammer the idea that the only baby-worthy cars are SUVs, Minivans, wagons, and similar vehicles. I don't think this is always true, and that's what this new series is all about: finding out how cars work with kids.
What I do is take a car I'm interested in, then use it as a general-use toddler taxi for my 20-month old son, Otto. I also cajole my wife to use it as well, just as she'd use our usual baby-tasked car. For round one, I'm trying out a car I loved driving: the Scion FR-S.
