    So excited!

    :) My 8 1/2 year old has asked to go back in her Regent! We stopped using it last year when I couldn't get a good install in my Saturn Outlook. We now have a Sienna which should be no issue. I asked her why and she said she missed a her soft seat for sleeping on trips. She doesn't sleep at all...

    Toyota says carseat may go in middle

    I called Toyota and emailed Toyota about the middle seat, second row. Both said you may install a safety seat using the seat belt in that seat. The man on the phone Friday pushed using the LATCH feature in the 2nd and 3rd row but I explained I wasn't concerned about an install using LATCH versus...

    Thought I had chosen a new van...

    Dh has decided we need a bigger vehicle for trips. I drive a 2009 Saturn Outlook. I love my outlook but with 3 adult size children and one average 8 year old most road trips are filled with arguments over space. :rolleyes: We drive a lot and I also do home daycare. I had the 11 Sienna as a...

    Honda Odyssey(11) or Toyota Sienna(11)?

    I am faced with the fact that my 09 Outlook is becoming a nightmare. I have 30k miles on it and it is entering it's 3rd visit to the shop with a long list of issues. We have 4 children and traveled in the rental van-Sienna at Thanksgiving. It was a quiet, happy trip. We haven't had enough space...

    My MA has officially expired...

    Britax Marathon in blue, paw prints cover. Best carseat I have ever bought and easiest to install in anything and everything. I haven't destroyed the shell yet. DD is so sad that it can't be used anymore. She loves her puppy seat. She wants me to keep the cover, which is just fine with me. How...

    Regent install help!

    09 Outlook with captains chairs. Post advisory Regent. Is it normal that only the recline bar and very top/headrest touch the seatback? Dh is uploading pictures for me. I did use an old receiving blanket between the recline bar and the leather seat. It is rock solid even with the seat reclined...

    Outlook didn't work for me...

    I was all ready to buy a Saturn Outlook with 8 passenger seating today. I wanted to be sure I could install Abigail's Regent before we went any further. I could not get a good install at all with the SBP :( It has solid, non-flexible buckle stalks. Oh Well! Back to the car shopping.

    Toyota 4 runner?

    I am starting to look at a new vehicle. I am done with the minivan mama thing. :) Does anyone have any experience with the 4 runner and carseats? I only have one still in a Regent. Everyone else is old/tall/heavy enough to have, as of this year grown out of booster seats.

    Parents magazine, August 2008

    I'm sorry if this was already discussed but there is a small blurb about center being the safest and properly install carseat being important. But the picture is of a child with huge padded shoulder straps and no chest piece. Page 30:thumbsdown:
