I'd love to keep him in his infant car seat but he's too tall already (99%tile). It's so much easier to just plop that thing in and out of the car and into the stroller if necessary rather than buckling/unbuckling him from a seat everytime. But, such is life, babies grow.
    You seem to have a good attitude

    Too many people don't realise that it's only when something bad happens that you need your infant seat to be a good one, the right size and fitted properly. If that happens then I want to know that I have given my kids the best possible safety environment. The 5 star IIHS ratings were a major influence in us buying two new Subarus this year as well.

    Jeez, you guys and your infants. We did it, too...went through the thing where the world hangs in the balance, depending upon how your car seat fits. My wife wanted to get the fire dept to sign off on our first kid's seat...I convinced her that since her husband has an engineering degree, we could probably skip that step.
    By the second kid, we made sure it was in there "plenty tight", and didn't worry about the rest.

    [/tongue in cheek ribbing]
    Yeah, I want my kids to be safe, too, at least, within reason. My wife has gone a little nutso with it over the years, sometimes, and I've been the "check and balance". My 15-year-old is likely to be driving around in a Subaru, this time next year.

    We have gained a lot more knowledge about child safety since you were doing this, and there is also a more independant equipment testing now. Like I said, it's only when you have an accident that you'll know how effective your brand and fitting was. And as for the plenty tight by the second kid remark... what kind of response are you trying to provoke with that??? LOL

    I was thinking getting EvenFlo symphony this weekend. Does anyone have experience with this particular brand?

    FWIW, I have the Recaro Performance Ride seat and my kid loves it. Had to get the wife the same kid for her Forester.

    Side note: Anyone know any good seat protectors (back of front seats). Can't seem to find ones that fit the WRX seats.

    LOL, I guess you guys forget than an admin can go back and read what you originally wrote before editing..
    I dunno, if you chose to ignore my [/tongue in cheek ribbing] indicator, and be sensitive, then my bad. But speaking more seriously, my world is full of housewives that cry hysterically about their child's safety, buckle them up to he moon, preach at others....and the scream off down the road at 20 over the limit, tailgating everyone in site. It's silly.

    I was trying to be funny, but when I read it back I thought it looked rude instead. I wasn't happy with leaving it that way regardless of whether you could check edits or not.

    EvenFlo and Graco seats are cheaply made, and it shows. I've used them both, and the extra price of the Britax seats I have is well worth it with the ease of use alone.. the superior safety is a plus, and so is the quality of the fit and finish.

    I have the Recaro Pro Ride, and just purchased the Recaro Performance as well, really great seats. I just purchased a set of kick mats to use in my Tiguan, I plan to test the fitment on the WRX once I purchase the car within the next month

    I've used two Recaros for older kid 3-12 and younger 3-10. They loved it. Seats are great quality and they last. Money worth. Both seats used to fit in my 2005 Impreza Outback.
    I recommend them to everybody. btw my older just started to learn to drive.

    Mine just turned 15; she's driven every car we own in some small way, well, except for my buggy project. So far, she seems to me to be an "intuitive" driver, meaning she understands what's going on behind the wheel without a lot of guidance. I'm glad.
