I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla (s model). Do any of you have any suggestions on which convertible car seat will fit best? I currently have one of those cosco ones, but i really hate it!

Thanks in advance.

What is your budget? What is the age/size of the child?

Would like to spend less than 300 but I know they're pricey. So 350max depending on if i really like the seat and how long I'll be able to use it.

15months. 33inch, 23lbs 10oz.

A new seat out getting great reviews is the Chicco Nextfit 65.

Another well regarded seat is the Graco Headwise 70.

The Britax seats are also good options.

I would go with a Britax, I think they are wonderful. But I couldn't tell you which specific model. We've had the Marathon and now we use the Frontier.

At that age I was using a graco comfort sport in my Kia soul then switched to an evenflo (I can't remember the model, but loved it, basically the same as the comfort sport), a friend that has the able on (basically the same as you) is using a CA65 (ERF) and both carseats fit well in her car.

I have a Graco Nautilus 3 in 1 fit into my 1996 Toyota Corolla since I wrecked my SUV. It fits nicely.
