Re: Help! Britax roundabout 55 vs marathon classic vs Evenflo Triumph!!

Great thread; I was just coming to post a similar question!!

We have 2 EFTA and they worked fine RF in our Ford Focus, but are a PAIN RF in our Subaru Forester. Like, take the seat out and throw it across the garage, annoying. I'm stuck between hating the seat for at least another 2 yrs, or just buying a marathon.

Anyone have experience RF'ing a marathon in a 2011 Forester? My main problem with the EFTA is that the knobs dig into the seat so I have to reach across the seat to tighten it. At 5ft 3in tall this is a challenge, and I'd like to not be doing this multiple times a day. I take the time to make sure the straps are tight, but I'm a little concerned other people might not (like DH ).

TIA for your insight!

PS - Britax is 25% off at BRU right now! This is what got me thinking about a new seat.....
