I think i'm going to get this one, i really like it. i'm hoping I can also get the myride 65, mainly just concerned about size, but I want something that he can be in for a while rear facing.

love them both! i have the nautilus for my 4 year old, and the myride for my almost 2 year old who still rearfaces, and will continue to for a long time, she just now hit 20 lbs, so she'll be RFing for a long time :-)

Love the Nautilus. And if I'm not mistaken, you asked about carseats in an Altima? We've had the Nautilus and both our other son's Graco boosters in ours with no trouble.

We bought the Nautilus when we turned Addy forward facing last August when she turned 3. We love this seat. It lasts 9 1/2 years. We hope to keep her in the harness until she turns 5. She'll be 4 in a month and we've still got a couple slots to go.

yeah that was me. I am looking at the dimensions, of the myride compared to his current infant seat and the infant seat has a higher depth. I'm assuming that is how far it sticks out. So it should fit fine.

I think that's correct. If your Altima is anything like ours, it has a fairly deep backseat.

I loved the MyRide until my son started unclipping his chest clip around 2 years old. Had to turn him forward-facing before I wanted to because he can so easily get his arms out of the restraint. I've been wanting to replace it for a while now, unfortunately since all Graco carseats have the same clip that brand is completely outta the question now :/

well i have a ford focus which i think is smaller then an altima and my myride fits just fine in there :-)

I checked the dimensions, and the myride sticks out less than our current car seat, so we are good. :)

we currently have a snugride 35, and it sticks out a good bit, apparently the myride is 3 inches shorter than the snugride, so we should be good.

Yeah I REALLY wanted one with our first, but hubby didn't want to spend the extra money. So he just has a graco comfortsport. Not a bad seat, I just really wanted the myride. Now our youngest is already huge, and a myride is perfect.
