    Does the Britax Marathon fit in a Pontiac Vibe?

    Title pretty much says it all...
    Thanks!

    Isn't there another website around somewhere that tells you which models fit in which cars?

    rear facing or forward facing?

    I would say yes. It tends to fit in most cars, but may take a few tricks to get a good install. It fits in my Subaru Outback, which has a small back seat. I don't know of a compatibility database to recommend. The only one I've seen wasn't all that comprehensive and had some obvious errors (like listing a ff only seat with acceptable rf install that was supposedly checked by a tech... ).

    Re: Does the Britax Marathon fit in a Pontiac Vibe?

    I just installed a MA in a VIBE FF and it was easy as pie. I used LATCH and didn't even have to get into the seat (pushed down with one hand and tightened) to get a rock solid install. From looking at the backseat I don't think there would be any problems installing it RF . . . I thought the VIBE had more room (front to back wise) then my Accord does.


    If know one else replies and you really need to know if it fits RF let me know and I can go play a bit for you

    My friend has a recent year Vibe and she has a Decathalon RF just fine.
