    2004 Prius and Britax Boulevard

    Does anyone have a Boulevard installed in a 2004 Prius, or have any advice on which possible position is safest in this car? My daughter will be rear-facing for awhile.

    I would also appreciate any advice regarding the fit of this carseat in this car, i.e., if you've tried it and it's a ridiculously large carseat for the backseat of this car.

    Thanks so much,
    Jennifer

    The pictures I found online of the 2004 look just like the 2005, which my mom has ... we successfully installed the Wizard/Bouelvard in her vehicle, both RF & FF middle & outboard

    I had trouble with the LATCH at the time, but it was my 1st ever attempt using LATCH so who knows, it could actually be really easy & secure?!

    Anyway, I used the seatbelt -- the only issue I had is that the roof is very low so I had a kink in my neck for days after squeezing my face up & over & around so I could kneel in the seat to get enough pressure for a good tight fit (I'm barely 100# though so that's a big reason 1 knee alone wouldn't do the trick, never does in any vehicle, LOL)
