 4ys AND 40lbs is the bare minimum.  It is best and safest to harness until about 6yrs or 65lbs.  Most 4yr olds don't sit properly in the booster seat(they slouch, put the shoulder belt behind them, etc) and in a crash the seat belt could severely injure them.

A great cheap seat for this is the Graco Nautilus.  It will harness to 65lbs and booter to 100(high and no back booster).  It is at BRU, and Wal*Mart.  It costs about $160.
