Quick question:
Can anyone tell me if I'd be able to fit comfortably (I'm 5'10") in a Honda Civic with DS RF in a convertible (Evenflo Triumph) in the back seat?
Thanks!

If you put him behind the passenger seat, definitely.

Are we talking about the sedan or coupe?

I am only 5'7" but I fit very comfortably in the driver's seat (of the sedan) with 2 of my kids RF in MAs the back seat. I believe the triumph has a shorter shell, but I'm not sure if it can be braced against the front seat.

We could never get a good install in our Civic in the middle. I would say you couldn't behind the driver's seat.
good luck!

Trying to balance a preschooler and peace....

We had a 98 Civic with the same seat in the back middle seat. My husband is 6ft and it was fine.

Jam 7, Peanut Butter 5, and Bread 2.

We have an 02 four door civic with dd rearfacing in a marathon and ds forward facing in a Regent. We have to have dd on the passenger side and the seat pushed forward enough that it isn't *uncomfortable* to sit there, but I would have the seat pushed back more if I could. Dh and I are 5'7" When we had ds in a graco convertible (not sure which one, but only forward faced until 40 lbs), it fit in the center seat and we had no trouble with our seats being anywhere. I am not sure how big your seat is...

We have a 4-door 2003 Civic Hybrid. DH is 5'10", drives with the seat all the way back (but not reclined AT ALL), and DS's Britax Roundabout is installed behind him, rear-facing. It works.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
