Ugh! Thanks for that reminder, I completly forgot. Good grief, car seat saftey really should be a little more cut and dry, there are so many variables, no wonder people don't know, or can never remember the ins and outs of it all.

Thanks for all your help!

Re: I need a car seat

I am trying to find out how long I can use the latch in my truck. Here is the owners manual, and all it says is how to use them, not how long you can use them, or maybe I am just blind! Where else can I look to get this info?

Re: I need a car seat

I like the Graco Nautilus, because you will eventually need a booster and it makes a pretty good booster. The Maestro does not. I am not sure about the evenflo 300/400? But you could factor that into the cost of yeah you could buy another $45+ seat later or spend that now and not worry about it. Also the Graco Nautilus can be used as a booster with LATCH. Just my 2 cents!

Chevy has a 48lb LATCH limit if it's not lower for the car seat itself.

The Maestro does make a good booster for those who fit. The problem is that if the harness is outgrown, then the booster is not far behind because the headrest does not adjust up at all.
