Does not fit in Xterra in fully reclined rear facing position
on July 1, 2015
For now, I can't give it more than 3 stars. I give it 3 because it seems like a solid seat that should work quite well if it fits in the vehicle. I haven't been able to use it because it doesn't fit in a 2006 Nissan Xterra when rear facing and reclined to the correct level for a newborn. That's right. It doesn't fit in a full size SUV. I was not expecting that at all. It should work when the baby is big enough to need less recline, but I'm very disappointed I have to spend another chunk of money for an infant seat just to work until I can use this one. It would be nice if this seat had some kind of adjustable base to help with the recline rather than just having to lift up on it and put in a rolled up towel or pool noddle. FYI, for the Xterra, it would have taken probably 4 or 5 towels to "level" it correctly. The front seat has to be all the way up and leaned forward (no way anyone could sit there) to even get the seat to physically fit. See the attached photo for what it would look like...obviously not safe. I'll hold onto it for when the baby is bigger, but that's partly only because I bought it weeks ago and don't have the receipt.
