We just bought this car a few months ago and I don't have all my "extra" seats anymore. I have not had time to try the nauti in there, just the FT85. The kids only ride in this car 2 or 3 days a week since DH takes them to school and picks them up in his car. I have reinstalled the FT85 once a week since I put it in. I locked the belt after install (ie: pulled it all the way out to lock and then retract) solid install, don't even get a smidge of movement and a week later it will be flopping around the backseat? I went back to latch for now and this weekend I will try LBP, have only tried SBP, just wondered if anyone had issues with this vehicle because I have never had a problem with any seat I have had or any car other than a RF radian and I am stumped if maybe its the FT85, the SBP or the car?

ETA: driver side outboard is where it is installed

it's SBP, mine loosens in my subi with SBP too, it's really weird. LBP it's rock solid with no loosening and about 3-5 inches of belt to feed back in.

Awesome thank you! DH and I thought it was really weird too! I will switch it tomorrow. Haven't had to use LBP with our old frontier80 so it will be good to know how to do it at least!
