2009 Infiniti FX50 AWD: Recaro Child Seat
September 08, 2009
Weekend with the family, time to cinch down our Recaro Como child safety seat. It was actually pretty easy, though there's minimal maneuvering room in the back seat for such a thing. Good thing my bony butt is also small. It was easy because the leather upholstery is nice and grippy, so it worked on the first try, not something I can say for all leather upholstered LT cars. I did have to remove the headrest, but that wasn't a problem once I inclined the seatback forward a bit. Leg room for the kiddie was kinda limited, especially for a crossover (front passenger seat is adjusted for someone 5'8"). And thanks to the FX's natural visibility limitations, at least the gigantic Recaro didn't make the visibility much worse, like it usually does in other cars.
