As we do not have this exact color of this seat, but WE DO own 3 of these carseats. We had 2 of them in the back of a 4-dr '01 Huyndai Elantra (about the size of a Honda Civic), 1 seat rear facing, the other forward facing with no problem. Was a breeze to install with the LATCH, and very secure. The rear facing seat did have to go behind the passenger seat though as the driver needs to be able to move the seat to be able to drive. We also own an '00 Honda Odessey (which does not have the Latch system), so installing was a little trickier (for me). Eventhough the seatbealts on our van locked if pulled all the way out, the shoulder part of the seat belt pulled the one side of the seat up, making the carseat not level sideways. To remedy this, I treated my seatbelts as if they didn't retract and used the locking clip that came with the seat, Problem solved, the lap portion of the belt stays really tight so no more crooked carseats. As in the Elantra though, the rear facing seat was placed behind the passenger seat for the same reason stated above. I love fact that you can adjust the height of the shoulder straps without having to unbuckle the seat from the car. Also, being able to loosen/tighten the straps to adjust for different outerware is another great feature. Taking the pad off to clean does takes a few minutes, but not really that big of a deal. We have also used this seat forward facing on an airplane with no problem. We are expecting Baby #4 anyday now, and I can assure you than we will be purchasing another one of these carseats in the future,( the other 3 kids are still using theirs) as they are a booster seat until 100 lbs. Never having to buy another carseat/booster, even when the child hits 80 lbs. This carseat is so awesome.
