I returned this seat after trying to install it rear facing. I had tried a couple other convertible car seats (Evenflo Symphony DLX and Chicco Nextfit) and the First Years True Fit SI was the most difficult to install in my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited in the rear middle seat position using the LATCH system. To get the proper recline, I had to use a towel and although the manual and many other safety sources say this is okay, my husband hated the idea fearing in the event of an accident the towel would move and thus, the seat would not be taut. It took some effort to get secure. It did fit in my vehicle without the removable headrest but I never tried it with the headrest since I put it back in the box to return after installing it. The instruction pocket is on the side of the seat which is convenient AFTER you find it for the first time. It blends into the material and has no labeling. The no rethread harness is easy to use. I went with the Chicco Nextfit which I love. It is super easy to install, does not require using a towel for proper recline, and my son seems comfortable awake and asleep in it.
