    Can the Evenflo Maestro hang over the seat at all?

    Also it doesn't have any padding on the straps, can I put baby socks on there to protect my daughter's neck? She said it hurt her.

    Question about installing a Maestro in a 98 Civic.

    We are planning on buying a Maestro to put in our 1998 Honda Civic. DD will rarely be in there so it is really a back up seat, but I want to make sure that it can be installed there. The car obviously doesn't have LATCH so can the Maestro be installed without the top tether or is it required...

    Question about install of Marathon in extended car pick-up.

    I tested the FF install of our Marathon in our 2003 Silverado Ext-Cab pick-up and the seat is against the glass in the back. I assume this isn't safe. Did anyone else have issues with this? Did you have to change seats? What seats work FF in that type of vehicle?

    Anyone instal a MA (rf or ff) in the center rear of the new Nissan Cube?

    I am thinking about buying one of these maybe next year but my concern is that Chaeli would still be rear facing in her Marathon.
