Review on Chicco KidFit 2-In-1 Booster Car Seat In Horizon Navy And Red - Optimize For SEO by Tara Perry

Revainrating 5 out of 5

Unfortunately Had To Return

Needed to buy an easy to use car seat for my 5 year old granddaughter. She has started kindergarten at a school which does not provide bussing so we needed an easy in-and-out seat. Her "normal" carseat is the Chicco My FIt (which we love) but she cannot buckle/unbuckle herself for school drop off and pick up. She really needs to be able to do this as believe me YOU DO NOT WANT TO HOLD UP THE CAR LINE at school!Since we have been a Chicco family (from Key Fit to My Fit) I really wanted to stick with a brand that has served us well, is highly rated for safety, and in my opion a quality product.Received the Kid Fit, assemble it (super easy) had her sit in it to set to correct size and went to install in my car. Unfortunately this seat does not work in my car (Chyrsler 200C). The seat back of the car seat will not fit snugly up against the automobile seat. I thought if I removed the rear headrest it may work, but headrest cannot be removed. I have included a couple of pictures (one with my hand between the back of the KeyFit and the actual car seat. You can see how large a gap remain between the two. I had her sit in the seat, buckle her in with the shoulder strap and then pulled forward on back of the seat. It was scary how far the seat would tilt forward even with the sealtbelt as snug as she could stand it. In looking at the Chicco owners manual it clearly states that the back of the KidFit should fit snug to the auto seat.I am disappointed that this seat would not work for us. I may be over cautious, but this is not the place to take a risk.I have since done some more research on my particular car and what booster seats will work. Have ordered a Graco Turbobooster LX - as I wanted a seat with a latch system to hold it in place when not in use. Will do a follow up review when that seat is received.Really like the Chicco KidFit and wish it would have worked. Will continue to use the Chicco MyFit which is installed in a GMC Acadia for everything but school drop off and pick up. Feel more secure with her in a 5-point harness system until she reaches the 65 lb. limit.
