It's annoying! And DS's booster, you have to kinda route the stalk from behind the booster because I swear that belt was made for someone about 4" wide...

Okay, this is not actually my car but this is exactly what my back seat looks like. It's sloped down.

Quoting Michael Westen:" I just don't know if an AA will work because of how sloped the seats are anyway. They're bucket seats so they sit kinda like an AA would do. I have no idea if that makes sense."

Yeah but there is something weird with her seat that you can't use the top harness slots to RF. Idk. I can't get to her manual and I haven't looked it up yet. It's attached to her seat but it's kinda wedged under the seat on the side farthest from me in the car.

My mom had a van like that when we were growing up. I remember it being a b***h to install seats in.

Ours had the captains chairs in it and my brother was RF on the passenger side. We all had to pile into the drivers side. But it wasn't bad. I will never ever ever buy a minivan though. Id rather drive my little matchbox car. Lmao.

Lol, i like the bench seats because if i need to i can put my son in the back and sit next to the baby to feed but im always driving so that never happens lol... I also have built in car seats but they don't adjust and are crappy so i use my seat still.... Also if im in a wreak EMTS like them in there own seat so they dont have to take them out.

That's how DDs convertible seat was too. So if she gets too far above the straps you will need a new seat regardless of her height.

Quoting L☮J:" She wasn't :roll: No 11 month old is too tall to RF."

My son was to tall for his infant seat (but under the weight) so we went to a convertable. I think that many people don't realize that "regular" seats can rear face, just thinking the buckets are the only ones.
