    Reccomendation for Booster

    DD is 8 years old, 46in and 52lbs. She has been in a Cybex X-fix in my '14 Ford Focus for over a year now. We both loved that seat but unfortunately it needs to be replaced after an accident. As much as I would love another Cybex I don't want to spend that much right now. We have been using an Evenflo Big Kid borrowed from a friend for the past few days and DD constantly complains that its uncomfortable. I don't like either as it just seems so flimsy in comparison to the Cybex. I guess I am going to have spend a little to get something that we can both live with in terms of comfort and safety so can anyone recomend a good HBB that is under $200 and isn't too big? We often have my SO's kids (14 y/o who uses regular seatbelt and 8 y/o in backless Graco Turbobooster) in the car with us so I need them all to be able to fit in the back seat together. It did work with the Cybex, however the 14 y/o was a bit squished.

    Insurance will often pay or reimburse the cost of a replacement seat. That may be your best option if it is available to you, and it should let you get the same seat again.
