DD is nearly 4yo and is in a sns maxi rider ahr which is forward facing from 6mths then supposedly convertible to a booster at 4yo. The safety rating is good while forward facing but drops down when converted to a booster. It's not a new model, probably 5 years old.
My problem is she is almost too tall for the normal forward facing (straps too low behind her shoulders as per instructions) but with the poor rating I'm wondering if j just go to a hi liner rather than covert it?
Anyone else have a maxi rider? What did you do?

I have the new maxi rider which is 4 starts in booster mode as well. Dd is only young but I understand you can buy an add on harness to increase the safety?

The new child safety stuff on Vicroads says don't put them in a harness if you can use a lap sash belt which once the Maxi Rider is converted you use the anti-submarine clip and lap sash belt.
The one we has drops to 2 start rating in booster mode (4 star as forward facing).

The Infasecure Comfi Caprice is a great seat ($250ish), as is the Maxi Rider Easy Adjust ($340ish atm). I would try to keep her in a harness as long as possible over buying a Hi Liner. And if she's not 4 yet then a Hi Liner is illegal.

How long until she is 4? I would keep her in the maxi til she is 4. (My son has been). We just bought 2 hi liners. One for our almost 7 yr old. Harnesses are not recommended because so many people are not using them correctly making them more dangerous. Or there is another seat they showed us which suits a child until they are 10. It is very wide though so it was not an option for anyone with 3 kids.

She's 4 in two weeks which is why I'm thinking about what to do. She's been a little too tall for her seat for a few weeks already. I might give her a trial run in DS hi liner over the holidays and decide whether to swap her or hold off a bit longer.
