    Not so, the sns meridian for example has a recline latch. I'm sure a toddler won't want to lay like a newborn.

    Callmedragon was corrct. In aus there is only on position for rearfacing recline. The selection of recline levels is for when the seat is forward facing.

    I have an impreza too. DS was in a 0-4year old seat. My DH is 194cm and he could still fit in the passengers seat, just. The capsule must take up more room.

    There was even more room when we turned the seat!

    Ours is a 0-4 seat, not a capsule, so I guess it must be a bigger one. I can fit in the passenger seat with the back stood up really straight & DH can just fit but his knees are right up under the dash. At least he wont really have to sit there because he does all the driving anyway.

    Must be. We got a seat that was for smaller cars for that reason. DH can't drive my car LOL! I find it funny, he should've learnt manual. So he has to be in the passengers side whenever he's in it. His car is bigger, so we take it a bit.

    It looks very similar to the safe n sound compaq. I wonder if they're around the same size? Worth looking into @ButterflyMa

    That's actually sounding like it's too tight. The tension of a tether strap and seatbelt under the seat should be similar to if you held the car seat suspended in the air by the strap. It's taught but not so tight it doesn't have some give in it.
    In an accident the straps are designed to move. That's how they work, by absorbing the shock and slowly stretching to deflect the impact. If they are rock hard there is no give to reduce the strength of the impact on the seat both outside and inside.
