We have gone throught alot of seats, and she wants one that rear faces to 40lbs, but likes to elite, because of no need to get a new seat. We are also on a budget for the seat, no more than $250, when looking at true futs, for new they seem to run about $300 or more.

I would choose between the True fit and the MyRide.

No way in h*ll Im paying $250 for a Dorel seat. You can find True Fits pretty cheap

Dorel is a shady company with horrible business practices and I will  not put my child in one of thier seats. They KNEW children were being killed by a defect in their seats, and yet they refused to issue a recall because they were still making money.

We got a Chicco Cortina travel system with the Keyfit 30 infant seat...that runs for $300 as a set, $170 for the carseat alone.

We were going to just get the extra base, but someone got us the Graco MyRide 65, so the Chicco will go in my car for now and the 65 in the Graco in DH's car. Eventually we will get a second one. Since we didn't have the money to fork over for a Britax right now, this seemed like the better bet.
