Recaro ProRide in Ford Focus? /was Re: Best convertible for Ford Focus?



We have a 3-Door Ford Focus and are looking at the Recaro ProRide - which is known to be rather large. Has anyone had any experience installing this car seat in a Ford Focus? Are we crazy for trying this car seat? The dimensions *seem* to be able to work behind the passenger side seat.

We have one and use it daily in our Impala. It's pretty high up on a base. It may fit, but depending on which seat you install on, you may have a heck of a time seeing over it.

What about a MyRide 65 or Radian?
