    Clek Foonf in a Honda Civic

    Hi, I was just looking at carseats for our Civic and snapped some pictures. I thought I'd share them in case someone might be interested to see the fit of a Clek Foonf on a 2.5 yo in a 2002 Honda Civic.

    Sitting in it, in the store. DS is 30 months, 24.5 lbs and about 34" tall.




    View from the driver's seat inside the car, looking into the back seat:



    View from the outside, looking into the car showing how high up it sits:

    HTH someone! I love seeing pictures of carseats when trying to narrow down my search.

  2. Thank You from:

    Wow, the Foonf fits very, very differently in a 2002 and 2006 Civic!

    It is WAY too tall for the 2006, and with the curve of the door, it is incredibly difficult to get kids into it. It isn't impossible, of course, but is not something I would want to do on a regular basis.

    Yeah, this picture might be deceiving. It was a pretty narrow opening and my 2.5 yo had to kinda lean back while I lifted him in to avoid hitting his head on the frame of the car. I am pregnant and it just wasn't appealing to me to have to maneuver him like that to get him in his carseat every time. We ended up with Radian RXT and shortly after, we got a Toyota Highlander. lol DH still drives the Civic so I like knowing we can get the Radian in there easily if we have to switch cars for some reason.
