Q:Can three of these carseats fit in the back of a Ford Escape? Thnx

A:We have two of these car seats, so I tried to fit one on the side and one in the middle seat of our 2014 Escape.

I’d recommend installing the middle seat first, anchoring it securely, then anchoring the side seats. Yo…

I’d recommend installing the middle seat first, anchoring it securely, then anchoring the side seats. You’ll end up with a solid row of car seats when completed.

Q:Can you use the recline position for front-facing?

A:No. It specifically says in the instructions that the recline is for rear facing. There is a flat piece like a tray underneath the seat that is supposed to hold the seat in the correct position. You flip it from the front for rear facing, to the back for front facing. This is what holds the seat in the recline position…

No. It specifically says in the instructions that the recline is for rear facing. There is a flat piece like a tray underneath the seat that is supposed to hold the seat in the correct position. You flip it from the front for rear facing, to the back for front facing. This is what holds the seat in the recline position. If you recline it facing forward you are using it incorrectly and it is less stable because the back is not flush with the seat behind it.

Q:Will this fit forward facing in economy seats on an airplane?

A:The car seat itself absolutely meets all requirements for FAA approval and there SHOULD be a sticker on the side proclaiming so, but if the sticker is worn off or missing, flight crew will not let you use it. If you order this and there’s no sticker, you should contact Evenflo and have them send you a replacement. No…

The car seat itself absolutely meets all requirements for FAA approval and there SHOULD be a sticker on the side proclaiming so, but if the sticker is worn off or missing, flight crew will not let you use it. If you order this and there’s no sticker, you should contact Evenflo and have them send you a replacement. No new car seat from this manufacturer should come without the sticker. That said, whether or not it will fit depends on which airline/aircraft. The width of this seat is 18.5 inches and the narrowest economy seat I’m aware of is 17 inches wide, so… probably not. If you must have a car seat, the “Cosco – Scenera 5-Point Convertible Car Seat, Renaissance” is a good, inexpensive option, but honestly? If AT ALL possible, you really should consider the “Cares Safety Restraint System”. Anything that means not having to lug a bulky car seat through the airport is worth its weight in gold, to me.

From their website FAQs: All Evenflo car seats expire 6 years following their date of manufacture, with one exception: the Symphony car seat line expires 8 years after the date of manufacture, because it is an all-in-one car seat with extended use from infant seat through belt-positioning booster. Safety standards change over time as restraint technology develops. Expiration dates help ensure that you are not using a car seat that may be secondhand, has been in an accident or has missing or damaged parts; plus, an expiration date provides a gentle reminder that it is time to buy a new seat with the latest technology and safety features.
