    Question Will a Graco Extend2Fit fit into a 2006 Scion tC?

    Hi all. We recently bought a Graco Extend2Fit to replace our Recaro Performance Coupe Infant Seat (which we could not stand and baby seemed super cramped and uncomfy in). I stay home with her and drive a 2006 Scion tC, so she is mostly in my car. I didn't even think to check if the E2F would fit well before buying it.. can anyone tell me if it should be an ok fit front to back, since Graco doesn't allow bracing? It looks as if it's almost 5.5" less deep than the Recaro, so I'm hoping I should be ok but wanted to check! She is 5 months old, so no need for the under 3 month recline. I prefer having her in the middle but could install on either side if necessary.

    I will no longer have this car when she's big enough to warrant using the extender, so that's not an issue. There are also no other passengers in the back seat (children or adults). The other cars she will ride in are a 2007 WRX and a 2007 Mazda3 sedan, but I believe we should be fine in those - both have much roomier back seats than mine! Thank you.

    It will work. It's a very compact seat. If you can't install in the middle with the seatbelt, you can install on the passenger side with the seatbelt or lower anchors. You may need to move that seat forward, but it should work nonetheless.
