  • That is what I my Mazda Tribute. They are the same size as your ford. It is in the middle of the back seat.

    I am getting ready to get a new one though since she is not 4 years but has outgrown the 40 lb 5pt harness limit. I am looking at the Graco Nautilus 3 in 1 since the harness goes up to 65 lbs and then it transitions to a high back booster to 100 lbs. It is only rated as a front facing seat. I will be taking DD to walmart to put her in it tomorrow just to make sure that it fits her well.

  • I've got three children under the age of three, we have a Radian 65SL for each of them. It's super slim which was a must for us because we're fitting all three car seats in the backseat of our Cirrus. I Love it =)

  • We just ordered a recaro brand convertible that is good up to 70 lbs. DH picked it because the company makes race car seats and is very safe.
