2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Too Small for My Dog?

May 23, 2011

I took my dog Mya for a spin in our 2012 Fiat 500 Sport and loved how easy it was to pet her on the head from the front seat as well as get a hold of her to buckle her in that backseat. But getting her in and out of the car was another matter. Since the front seats don't fall forward enough and she's a bit portly (65 pounds), I had to have her step on the front seat to get in and out. Not my favorite option since that means I have to cover the seats so she doesn't muss them up. Plus she has a difficult time squeezing between the two seats. Oh well, Mya, we at least have the Juke for a fun city car you can ride in.
