We went with the MyRide 65. Not only does it rear face longer than most, but then it has a decent forward facing harness. ITA with everyone else on testing in your car. We had a carseat for Naomi when she was first born that ended up not fitting in our van and we had to get another one. Most seats will work until 3 years, though, Lilly was able to rearface in her Scenera that long (it was our spare), although not in her Britax Wizard (the design of the head wings posed a safety risk as she kept putting her head outside of them and getting caught). Both Lilly and I liked the MyRide (she helped pick for her sister) better than the Britax Marathon--she said it wasn't as comfortable.
Take him to the store and see what he fits in best from your end list to decide from--BRU has a testing area along with a van bench in most stores.
