I almost hate to ask, but has anyone had any luck with boosters seats? The latch positions for the seat belts in the rear are so narrow that the Britax booster seats cover them up rendering them pretty much useless!
We removed the armrests from our Olli Klek boosters and they fit, although the right rear seat belt is hard to buckle unless you use the buckle receptacle from the center seat.
See this thred on seat belt extenders.
I've had three boosters in the back seat. They fit but difficult to buckle. I didn't feel the need for belt extenders. I didn't use the latch system
We have both a booster seat and a child car seat (One that uses the LATCH system) in our rear seat at the same time. We use an Evenflow booster seat and that fits fine on either the right or left rear passenger seats as does the child car seat. We do use a seatbelt extender to make it easier for my son to buckle himself in with the booster.
For 7 year old, we purchased this booster seat:
Really works great w/ latch (but get a Type A buckle extender to make it simpler for child to buckle own belt. We just ordered http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JZSP08/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?i...
We also have a 4 year old - replaced britax with a recaro because of smaller footprint:
The recaro seat fits very easily with latch and has just been perfect.
We got the jump seat option
I'm using a The First Years Compass B505 Booster Car Seat. Reasonable foot print, comfortable, and great for flying/travel too. I got a seat belt extender to make buckling much easier and a Diono seat protector. The same company makes some nicer Boosters and my wife has one that has LATCH hooks to keep it from moving around when the kid isn't in the seat.
