    ETA and 2003 VW Jetta

    Hi,
    This weekend my sister will be taking care of my DS. Soon DS will need a new seat and we are probably going to buy an ETA. I was thinking we could go ahead and buy it, and install it in her car, a 2003 VW Jetta this weekend. That way we can leave our current seat installed in our car. (Her car is a stick shift and DH and I are not real familiar with that; otherwise we'd just swap cars.) So...I'm just wondering if anyone has found any compatibility problems with that seat in that type of car. Just thinking ahead so we don't have too much cursing as we try to install the seat on Friday! LOL! Thanks!
    Mom to DS, age 4 1/2 ... and a new little passenger, DD, born 1/28/08!

    Re: ETA and 2003 VW Jetta

    It's not usually a hard seat to install and I wouldn't forsee any problems in a Jetta. Most problems have to do with weird seat configurations or multiple car seats in one row.

    You can always try it out at BRU before you buy as well. They should let you take the floor model out to your (or her) car.
