help me find a carseat

DS is is the 95% for both height and weight. We are looking to buy him a convertible seat this fall. We plan to rear face as long as possible. He's our only child and we aren't planning for #2 for 2-3 years.

Right now we have a '08 VW Jetta, an '08 Subaru Imprezza hatchback and a GMC pickup extended cab, not a crew cab. We don't have a whole lot of space to work with, especially considering DH is 6'6" and needs his seat all the way back and I'm tall as well. DS sits behind me when we drive, because his seat (Safety 1st Onboard 35) won't fit in the middle with DH's seat back.

I need a seat with a really high seated shoulder height, and a high total height and weight limit. Also one that will fit in our small-midsize sedans rear facing. The least expensive, the better, since I'm pretty sure we will need to get 2. But of course safety and the ability to use it as long as possible will win out over cost.

Since convertibles are more upright, should they be easier to fit in the backseat than our large infant seat or not because they are just bigger in general?

Suggestions? Thanks mamas!
