If I recall correctly, it SHOULD be in the owners manual of the seat if they allow overhang or not... Some manufacturers do, some do not... THAT is either a really small car, or a HUGE infant seat and base

I can't remember what Graco says about overhang but she needs to get that mat out from under the seat. Any aftermarket product is a no-no as it can affect install. If she feels that she really needs something on the seat she can use a thin towel.
