    I have a 2005 suburban. The chicco cocorro fits well rf in the middle row captain's chairs. It goes to 33# RF.

    The cocorro is by Combi. How does your seat not fit?

    Pretty much any car seat should fit RF on the captains chair. I have put an Evenflo Sureride there as well as the Graco 4Ever. What specific issue are you having? Recline angle?

    Height of front seat people will matter. I have a 2005 Yukon XL. Dh is tall and can't have the sureride behind him. It works behind me, but since we have a 2nd row bench I had it middle of the 2nd. I didn't like the radian rf in mine. It was very reclined in the 2nd row even with the angle adjuster.

    The coccorro would be shorter lived and pricey.

    The cosco scerena next is only $45 but can be used more upright for older kids. It rf to 40"/40#/top of head even with shell

    One of the Graco clones (Size4Me, Fit4Me, HeadWise, I think there's one more)
    should fit well.

    I think the Scenera NEXT would be a good, less expensive option until your baby is forward facing. Then you may be able to install the Graco you have forward facing.
