I know carseat posts cause drama but this one is simple.  I need to buy a convertible carseat.  My little DS is getting to be a chunk and will outgrow his infatn carrier real soon.  What do you all have?

2 Britax Marathons (my car & DH car)

1 Graco (it was a cheap one i think for $100) just to have as a spare

depends on the type of car you have, i would go to carseatdata.org you put in the make and model of your car and it shows which ones fit best...

I will look at the site.  Thanks.  We have a 2007 camry.  I just wanted to hear what people have had to say.

We have a Scenera that RFs to 35 pounds and FFs to 40. I'm not sure of the specs beyond that.

I have an 08 Corolla and I have a Britax Marathon rearfacing and a Graco Nautilus in it.

My chunk is almost out of his too! We have a Evenflo Symphony waiting for the day he hits 22 lbs!

We have a First Years True Fit and LOVE IT! We have an 07 Mustang which is two doors and it fits great!

In my car I have a Britax Boulevard, a Cosco Scenera and soon a True Fit!  Honestly, I would go with the true fit or if you are planning on extended rear facing I do believe there is a Radian that RF to 45 lbs!  The true fit did better than Britaxes on recent crash tests and many targets have them on clearance for $135

I have a program here in Vermont where I pay $20.00 for a new carseat. Maybe you can ask the local EMT's if you have a program there and they will get you the best one for your car. Right now I have a Evenflo convertable seat. Which i have to get a new one because my daughter is too tall for it.

BTW: avoid the Graco Comfort Sport (terrible seat, short shell and hard to install) and the all in ones that go from rear facing to a booster (hard to install, make poor boosters, don't harness long enough).
