Q:Is this product made in the USA?
A:Made in the USA by the world’s largest car seat manufacturing co, Dorel Juvenile Group. Their factory is located in Columbus, Indiana :) They’re also ranked top ten furniture manufacturers in North America.

Q:Will this fit in the rear passenger side seat of a (2006) Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe if the car seat is rear facing and fully reclined?

A:I tried this seat rear facing in our 2004 Toyota Matrix and it was a no go. I ended up putting it in our Explorer and bought a Combi Coccoro. Plus to that one is it’s super narrow, so great for other passengers to ride back there. Check the weight and height limits for rear facing though, because with the new recomme…

I tried this seat rear facing in our 2004 Toyota Matrix and it was a no go. I ended up putting it in our Explorer and bought a Combi Coccoro. Plus to that one is it’s super narrow, so great for other passengers to ride back there. Check the weight and height limits for rear facing though, because with the new recommendations for rear facing until age two, you may run into some problems – I’m actually on here now looking for something that will fit my fast growing one year old until two – the almost four year old is still in the Coccoro, but is a petite thing, so no problems for her.

Q:can the seat back be detached to make it a booster seat?
A:No it does not turn into a booster, it does turn into a high back booster, but when using it that way the seat belt does not fit children properly.

Q:Can this car seat fully recline when forward facing without having to first remove it from the car?
A:Yes this seat can recline without removing the seat. You pull the lever hold the bottom of the seat and pull up to recline.

Q:Is the cover machine washable?
A:Yes and its simple to remove.

Q:Does it recline in rear facing position. Is it well padded on back and seat as the frames of these car seats are very hard.
A:Yes, this car seat reclines in the rear facing position. This is a well padded and comfortable chair. It has extra padding for infants without full neck control.

Q:In our current car seat, my 1-year-old sweats terribly; fabric is not breathable. Any problems with child overheating in this seat?
A:My little girl hasn’t had any sweating issues since buying this seat.

Q:Will this car-seat work in a 2004 Audi Quatro
A:I’m pretty sure it will, but you may have to move the seat up a bit if it’s rear facing. I have mine in a Ram 1500 so I don’t have a problem with it being a little big.

Q:Has anyone reclined this seat facing forward? I did and put my jeep seat back and it fit firmly and level.. Just wondering if it’s ok?
A:Yes you can recline the seat when it’s forward facing if it allows the seat to fit better.

Q:Is it gonna fit in my toyota corrolla, rear and forward facing?
A:It fits both ways in a Malibu and grand am and highlander and town and country. That’s all I know. Maybe that will help

 

Q:does it recline in rear facing position. Is it well padded on back and seat as the frames of these car seats are very hard.
A:It reclines some as it should for rear facing. It’s well padded. It’s not the top of the line but it’s a good car seat

Q:This is a “convertible car seat” and carries a child up to 110lbs, but does it actually turn into a booster for toddlers? I’m very confused. The description makes it seem that way but everything I read says it does not turn into a booster… So?
A:If by booster, you mean does the back remove to leave just the base, then no. It will however fit quite a large child in it though.

Q:How thick is the padding on the back rest? Are there any sharp edges or ridges that can be easily felt through the padding?
A:No sharp edges. I don’t understand what you mean by how think the padding is. Our son road in it for 8 days cross country and seemed happy with it.

Q:If you use the LATCH system, are you supposed to also thread the seat belt through? We recently bought this and the car seat is so wobbly.
A:DO NOT use both. It says in all car seat manuals that I am familiar with that you should never use both LATCH and the seatbelt. It was not meant to be used this way.

Q:How was the seat packaged inside the box? Seat and cupholder in the box, no wrapping of any kind or documents, except those attached to the seat itsef
A:There was no wrapping on seat or cup holder , it did come with the instruction book and the recall card to send back to register seat with your address .

Q:Can you tell me the dimensions of the widest part? I have a small SUV and need to fit this one in between another convertible and a booster. Thanks!
A:If it’s a small SUV it will be tight-it’s a wide car seat however very comfortable!

Q:How to remove the infant head support?
A:i think you have to release the support straps underneath the seat to slide off infant head support, hope you have success:)

Q:has anyone actually used this for an infant? were wanting to only get ONE carseat for this baby (due may 8th) and were looking for the best possible.
A:I used mine for a 4mo old and it worked fine. Only problem is this seat is quite large. I have a Durango and my passenger side seat has to be pushed most of the way forward to correctly install the seat rear facing at the correct angle.
