Wisconsin state law, 4 years old and over 41 pounds. Goodbye to her baby seat hello to a booster seat.

Don't get it, about five inches tall, no back, and uses the conventional shoulder/lap belt. Guess I never noticed how deep those pockets are in the rear seat with leather where the buckles are located. Wife can't even dig those out to snap in the buckles, even I have a heck of a time.

Wonder why the Cruze people did this, if they were 2" longer, wouldn't be a problem. Those buried deep U clips for a conventional baby seat were bad enough, could only release those with a long pair of nose pliers. These buried seat belts are even worse as we were shopping around for birthday presents and had to release and attach them each time. With her baby seat, was only a fight at the beginning and end of the weekend.

We haven't taken her little brother yet, almost a year old now, born on 11/11/11, not sure if we can deal with both a baby and a booster seat, one reason my wife wanted a four door. Cruze is not very baby and young child friendly in this respect.

Shame on you.

I have two kids ages 12 and 10. They ride in the back all the time. It used to take them forever to dig out the seat belt in the seat to latch. Sometimes I would have to get out and dig it out of the seat and latch it myself. Got sooo tried of it being such a PITA, so I took some foam, folded it a couple times, pulled up on the latch as much as it would go and jammed the foam under it. It only raised it a very small amount, but was enough for them to at least be able to latch it themselves...even though it still takes a bit. Most times, it's children in the back....why GM ever though having seat belt latches like this was OK, is beyond me. I honestly think that EVERY design team for every product made, should have at least one woman on the team...because Mom's think about stupid little stuff like this. LOL
