This is my first post, and please pardon me for jumping right in, but child passenger safety is a passion of mine. Vegas, there may be a less expensive alternative to replacing the car that your toddler seat won't fit in! Different seats fit differently in the same vehicle. You could spend $60-$100 to replace your current seat. Or, you could visit a certified Child Passenger Safety technician ( for free assistance with installing your current seat. Many times, there are little "tricks of the trade" you that a CPS tech will know that will get a seat in the vehicle rock solid, even if it seemed in possible before.

Also, if you do decide to go with a new vehicle, don't just assume that a station wagon will get you more space than a sedan. I made that mistake 3 years ago. Our Saturn SW2 actually has less room than a Toyota Camry! has some good info about selecting a good family vehicle (and also about correctly installing child safety seats).
