    Who rides in the other seats you have? Do you have the screws in the armrest of your Graco Turbobooster?

    For under $250 at his stats in a tight three across I'd look at the Diono Radian and rear face him until he's three or four, then he can likely last forward facing in it until he's five or six years old. You could also look at the Safety 1st Complete Air, and maybe the Graco My Ride.
