  • I drive a Ford F-150 super crew (4-door) and I actually have 2 car seats that both work fine in it. One is a baby trend and the other is a graco. Why is your carseat not working in yours??

  • My husband says the straps are not long enough for it to be rear facing?

  • I have the Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I had the graco convertible carseat. It fit fine. I am with PP, why isn't yours fitting?

  • Did the carseat say it was rear-facing? That is just odd. I liked my Graco, can't remember exactly what it was called but it worked great.

  • Yes it is a rear facing car seat...I used it with my daughter at the time in my Mazda 3. Now I need it for my son and I now have an explorer. I need it behind the passenger seat as my daughter is in a booster on the other side. I guess i need to check this out....

  • do you mean for using the LATCH system? we used the seatbelts to pur our seats in when we had our explorer (ours did not have LATCH, it was older).

  • I am not familiar with that car seat but the latches should be adjustable, it they don't reach still, you should be able to use the seat belts to strap it in and it should be just as safe.
