    Car Seat for '98 Subaru Forester

    Hi there,

    Does anyone know of any car seats that will work with the seat belts in a '98 Subaru Forester? We have seat belts in the center of the rear seat that are forward of the seat bight. I know that Graco car seats won't work, and it looks like Safety First cars seats won't work with these belts either. Is a car seat positioned on the side our only option?

    Thank you!

    I've never had a problem installing anything in the center of a Subaru.

    It would help to know how heavy and old your child is, and what your budget is. That way we can help tailor recommendations specific to you and your child.
