2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Child Friendly
October 08, 2010
A while back, I drove the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that Dan used for one of his award-winning Suspension Walkarounds (<--that's a link to ALL of them, by the way). There was an outside chance that I'd need to pick-up my 6-year old daughter with the two-seater so I needed to verify that it was child-seat friendly. After RTFM, I discovered that when you motor the passenger seat ALL the way back (on the 2011 Z06), that it deactivates the front airbag (indicated by a light on the rear-view mirror). Cool. That's how GM does it today, but back in the day, there was the switch in the glove box you see above.
