Question Is this seat incompatible?


New member
I'm trying to place my DD in the center of the third row of a 2013 GMC Yukon. Is this Evenflo Sure Ride incompatible?

When the Sure Ride back is flush against the vehicle seat,

There is a gap as big as my fist underneath the front of it.


It installs tightly, but when DD climbs into the seat, it of course, rocks and loosens the install.

If I set the bottom of the SureRide flush against the bottom portion of the vehicle seat, there is a huge gap.

It looks to me like the vehicle cushion isn't compressed enough. You may need to put more weight in the seat while tightening (with the back flush) to eliminate that loosening issue.
