Has anyone tried the Safety 1st guide 65? It seems great for our car because we have a horrible time fitting anything rear-facing in it. I put my girl(19 months) in it at the store and she seemed good. But I've read reviews where it says the headrest pushes the head forward at a weird angle. Just wondering if anyone had any input, thanks!

I too am looking for more information on this car seat. My daughter needs to go into a rear facing very soon and I have a 2007 Kia Rio, which has a very small back seat. If we can't find one that will fit rear facing properly, we are going to be buying a brand new car. Please anyone help?

I do not know much about this seat, but the only thing i would be weary of is if Safety first requires this seat to be installed as reclined as it does with the Complete Air... if so, even if its small it could still be an issue fitting in some vehicles because of the required recline.

*and just a note, i have a safety first complete air, so i still recommend the brand i just know the recline was a big ol' issue for many people in the past)

Good point, PP. For all other convertible seats, Safety First has required that the RFing angle MUST be 45 degrees no matter the age of the kiddo. This means it will take up a good deal of space in any vehicle.

Well I went ahead and bought one today to bring it home and get the real feel for it. The recline is not an issue with this one, it has two seperate recline lines for minimum and maximum recline. Even fully reclined, its still small enough for a compact car. It has a lot of harness height, several inches left for my oldest to grow before she would be too tall. So that also solved my seat issue for the grandparents. I can see what people are talking about with the headrest. I think it will really vary from kid to kid. But once I got it all adjusted properly, it is not an issue for either of my girls. I think they key is how your child is built, and also making sure the headrest is really in the right place and not too high. Strap adjustment was super easy, and car install was also easy. Obviously we have only used it for today, but so far I would recommend it.
