    Both have a 40" limit rear facing. Is that enough?

    Otherwise, the Guide will be more compact after 22 pounds. The Sonus has a single recline line that must be parallel to the ground at all times.

    What vehicle(s)? The Guide has problems in a lot of vehicles with slipping backwards

    I know one is an Acura ti something and the other is an older Dodge Durango.

    They will have to move the seat back and forth until they can afford to buy another seat.

    Re: Sonus or guide 65 sport?

    Im open to other seats as well. Id like to stay as close to $60 as possible since my daughter totaled my car and Im having to pay for that as well.

    Im not replacing a seat from the accident with this seat. Those have been taken care of already.

    Re: Sonus or guide 65 sport?

    Without knowing the age, height, and weight of the child, maybe you could do two Cosco Scenera Nexts? That's another easy to install option that can have less of a recline.

    He is 1, about 20lbs and in the 90+% for height.

    If hes anything like his uncles he will be very tall and very very skinny.
