    The safest place is the position in which the seat will install the best. There is no point putting a seat in the middle if you then can't get a good, tight install.

    Not sure. I guess there's negatives and positives to both sides.
    I would have thought they would have installed it in the middle. Least impact from both sides and you can get baby out from either side.

    We could only install our capsule on the passengers side, so that's where it is, I did research before hand but then noticed that was the only place it would go.

    I assume because of lack of anchor points? Why do some cars only have 1 anchor point? Seems so strange.

    My car has an anchor point for all three seats.

    Hmmm I thought passenger as well but after reading this I'm tempted to change DD to drivers side.

    I'd say the age of the car very much has something to do with it. We have an old car, I wasn't aware cars didn't have 3 anchor points until I looked in ours.

    Same as me, my car is a 2004 model and does not have a middle anchor point just one behind passenger and one behind driver

    The most common reason for no middle one is if you have a split fold seat. They don't want the risk of a tether falling in the gap and affecting the install of the seat.

    I don't think one side is safer than the other to be honest.
    The only car accident I was ever in was when a 4x4 exited a car park and ploughed straight into my drivers side passenger door.
    My son was in his seat at the time too.
    It was a miracle and only a matter of inches that he was unhurt.
