    Successful Nautilus FF install in 2000 Forester, center seat

    I brought home the Graco Nautilus with some nervousness, since some people had reported problems doing a seatbelt install in a pre-LATCH Subaru Forester. Just wanted to report that the combination worked fine for me; easy install, nice and tight, in the center seat.

    Re: Successful Nautilus FF install in 2000 Forester, center seat

    Any tips? We have a 2000 Impreza and I've not had luck with the center spot and a GN. Outboard I've been able to do, but not center.

    Thanks!

    Did you keep the car's headrest on or take it off?

    I have a 2001 Forester that I've been struggling with and I am *so* going to try this--I never thought about putting the GN in the middle as I've never been able to get anything else in the middle so didn't try :P

    Headrest is on. Really, I don't have any tips -- I just followed the instructions from the manual!
