Safety 1st CA 65lx, Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 or the True Fit Premier.
We've decided to go ahead and replace our MyRide for various reasons.
We've narrowed it down to the above mentioned seats. I've read a bunch of reviews and watched several YT vids on them all but I keep going around and around on which I like best and cannot decide! I went to BRUS and was able to look at the Safety 1st but couldn't find the True Fit or Pria there.
Do any of you have experience with any of these seats? Rants, raves or opinions on them? Which of the three would you pick?
DS will be RF in an 04 Explorer and he's 28lbs 35" tall 12-12.5" torso.
The Pria is a Dorel seat (like the Safety 1st seat is), do they have the 40 inch rule as well for rear facing? It is basically the Complete Air with an infant insert, right? The Pria can be installed more upright than the Complete Air allows, but again, the 40 inch height limit for rear facing is a draw back for those of us wanting to keep our kids rear facing to 3-4+ years old.
I'm definitely open and would love to hear other suggestions! The feedback & the pictures are great, thank you *I* really like the Pria because the head cushions, but I'm thinking that DS will be really annoyed with them so I'm just not completely sold on it.
We were going to stick it out with the MyRide but then the entire plastic covering on one of the crotch buckles came off. Graco says they are going to send us a whole new seat so we're going to take that opportunity to sell the brand new MR and get one we love. Most of the things we don't like about the MR are no big deal like DS can't get into it on his own because the sides are so high and it doesn't have a lot of cushion to it. These are things we can live with because DS isn't complaining about it. But I HATE that DS can undo the chest clip and he does not understand he can't do that. Pulling over every time he does it results in us never moving. He's a stubborn one! It makes me so nervous so I refuse to get another Graco seat because of this.
ETA: We hope to keep him RF to at least 3
TY *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!

I have looked online, but I can't find it in stores. I've read a lot of reviews saying it's difficult to install rear facing. It also worries me that the sides aren't really high at all so what happens in a side impact without having the high sides like most other seats? Our back middle seat doesn't have latch so we have yo use the shoulder belt to install.
You probably already have a new seat but I just wanted to add if the seat is in the center you do not need to worry about side impacts. The high sides of the other seats are just plastic and the Radian's are steel.
