    RF convertible in 2015 Nissan Juke?

    Hi! Can anyone offer advice on a convertible car seat for a Nissan Juke? DS is 8 months old, roughly 24lbs and probably around 31in at this point. DH and I are both 6'2". We're currently using a Graco 35 Click Connect and kiddo is just too big and heavy and it's a real hassle trying to get him in and out. Looking to switch to a convertible (obviously RF for now), but would ideally like something that gives the passenger a little more leg room as the Graco currently has my husband's knees in the dash.

    I've seen the Combi Coccoro recommended, but I'm confused on possible RF weight limits.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated!

    I wouldn't get the Coccoro for such a tall little guy. The 36"/33 pound limits would be very very short lived for you.

    I'd look at the Graco Extend2Fit or Graco Sequel/Sequence, or the Safety 1st Grow and Go EX Air. They're very compact because they can sit quite upright, and they are very tall. The Extend2Fit and Safety 1st rear face to 50 pounds. The Sequel/Sequence rear face to 40 pounds. The Gracos will last longer forward facing by torso height.

    Thank you so much! That is exactly what I needed to hear about the height/weight limits. And none of those other options were on our radar! I really appreciate your help!
