Convertible seat: To get a good fit with the forward-facing convertible, we had to remove the head restraint. Because the head restraint behind the front passenger seat was jammed, we installed this car seat behind the driver's seat. The forward convertible fit well in the second row.
We had to move the front passenger seat forward an inch or so to create enough room for the rear-facing convertible in the backseat. This left our 5-foot-8 tester's knees close to the glove box, but not touching it.
Infant-safety seat: To fit this rear-facing car seat, we also had to move the front passenger seat forward again - roughly an inch. The front passenger had the same legroom with about an inch of clearance between her knees and the glove box.

Editor's note: For three car seats — infant-safety seat, convertible and booster seats — to fit in a car, our criterion is that a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat.
