    Older kids

    booster choices

    I posted yesterday after an accident, and now need to replace three booster seats. I drive a 2011 Odyssey. The big kids are 9 yo, about 48-50" and 55 pounds. They definitely still need boosters, but what I cannot decide is if I should buy dedicated no back boosters or get high backs again. They...

    ok to keep?

    Hi- We were rear ended today in our Honda Odyssey. Our two high back turboboosters and nautilus (in high back booster mode) were occupied.

    seatbelt problems

    Almost a year since I visited here... We moved the twins into turboboosters full time in December. After four months in the boosters, we STILL cannot get the seatbelts to retract normally or uncrinkle after having them belted into harnessed seats for seven years. So each time we get into the...

    parkway sg/skl

    Does anyone love their parkway sg/sgl? Is the slide guard overkill? I am looking at them vs turboboosters for H & B. If you like turbos, is the elite worth the extra $? Thanks!

    Crysler T & C/Dodge Caravan

    If a FF seat (GN) is in a captain's chair in the middle row, can the captain's chair still be tilted forward (not folded down) to allow people to get into the third row?

    J is just out growing her CS RF, at age 2 1/2, 28 pounds 35 inches. I have 2 MR for our cars but now I also need to replace the seat in grandma's car. She is in that car usually one day a week, anywhere from 10-40 minutes at a time, each way. I tried her in a Scenera today (Big Lots $45) and...
