We have three kids, ages 7.5, 5, and 2.75. In our Sienna, they're in a Parkway SGL booster, a Frontier, and a rf Boulevard.
We need a seat for dh's car, a Honda Fit. Our youngest ds's Boulevard will expire in 1.5 years, so I want a seat he can use as a 5 pt harness and then a booster. For the next 1.5 years, till he needs it, dd and ds1 will use it in dh's car.
I still want ds1 (the 5yo) in a 5pt harness, so we'd install it that way. Could dd use the seat as a 5 pt harness at her height? She's around 51-52 inches tall. Also, would a Frontier 85 be really tricky to raise and lower the headrest when it's installed? In our original Frontier we'd have to unbuckle it to raise it from the back. Is a Nautilus easier to raise and lower the headrest?
Also, I know there are LATCH weight limits for each make of car. Can someone post a link to a page that lists how high the limits are for Hondas and Toyotas? DS1 is 41 lbs, so I installed his Frontier with the seatbelt because I thought I remembered a weight limit of 40 lbs for Toyotas.
Finally, is the seatbelt installation easier with a Frontier 85 than it is with the original Frontier? The long belt path is a pain in the neck.
Oh, one more thing, I couldn't find anything on the Britax website about how many years the Frontier 85 has till it expires. Also, if anyone knows how many years we could use a Nautilus, that would be great to know.
Thanks in advance!
