2004 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible - Need a Seat that FITS!



Hi -

I have a 2004 VW Beetle Convertible and a Keyfit 30 Air. They do not seem to be compatible - I cannot lock down the front passenger seat while the car seat is locked in as well.

We generally use my partner's car for getting the baby from place to place, as his car is far newer, safer, and the car seat is safely installed, but I'd like to have a safe car seat for my car just in case I need to get baby somewhere in the Bug.

Any suggestions? VW has been zero help, only pointing me to the NHTSA, which is helpful to find safe seats, but not helpful in that I cannot figure out what will actually FIT in the car.

Thanks -
