What is a good forward-facing car seat for a 3 year old?

My son is 3 years old and is 40 1/2" tall (3 foot four and a half), and weighs 42lbs. I want a safe forward facing car seat that has a 5 point harness that accommodates taller children and that allows children to use the 5 point harness for as long as possible (both height/weight-wise).

  • My 4 year old son is in a Graco Nautilus 3 in 1 seat. It harnesses untill 65 lbs and then goes to a high back booster then a regular booster seat. They are around $180. It is kind of heavy, but it is a good seat. Google it and read some of the reviews.

  • I have the Apex 65 and all three of my boys have been comfortable in it.
