We just bought a Honda CR-V, and we just took the 5pt harness straps out of dd's Graco Nautilus to use as a high-back booster. (She's 8 and just hit the height limit on the 5 pt harness.). I have always had her in the center of the back seat, but it doesn't seem that will work in the cr-v. In the center backseat, the seatbelt buckle is behind the booster, so I would have to pull her booster out to buckle her in and then push it back each time she got in. And each time she got out. So I'm moving her to one of the side seats. Which, statistically, would be safer? Behind the driver? Or behind the passenger?

Tia!

The best place for it is where-ever yo get a good belt fit.  There's no statistical difference in crash safety driver v. passenger, so if you have the choice I'd put her on the passenger side since that door doesn't open into traffic when you park.

Thanks! I really appreciate the input. I had put her on the passenger side for now, so I'll probably leave her there. Thanks again!
