    I think the Summit has that awful Dorel rule of not using the top headrest position with the harness. At least, my friend's Summit from a couple of years ago has that rule. It is not imprinted on the seat, but it is stated in the manual. So, it's top slots are really not much taller than a Scenera.

    Maybe the newer Summits are better - at least I hope so!

    The last Summit I checked had that rule, but this one did not. I think they changed it.

    If not, the second-to-top slots were still as high as the Chase-- significantly higher than the Scenera. But I read the whole manual and it said nothing about unusable top slots. I think it got a redesign. (Now, if only they'd redesign that AWFUL base!)

    I had actually been looking at that one for a long time, until someone said you couldn't use the top slots. Unfortunately, I spent our money on a True Fit yesterday. Oh well, I'll figure something out next year.
