    Lap belt only conundrum

    I have an older car. A 1997 Expedition. The middle seat in the 2nd row has only a lap belt. I have 3 kids currently in seats - 8 (booster by door), 6 (Evenflo Sureride in center), and almost 2 (RF in Radian XTSL by the other door). The 6yo is making noise about not wanting to be in a baby...

    Problem with Radian XTSL in 1997 Expedition

    I have 2 Radian XTSLs in my 1997 Expedition. Kids are 4 and 5-1/2 and both FF now. When I turned the center seat around, I found that it was slipping forward and I can't get it to hold tight against the seat. It feels snug until you pull forward and it moves forward A LOT. I have read about...
