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.

We have Recaro Young Sport seats in the Cruze. These are rated up to at least 60 (maybe 80) lbs, with great protection. These are convertible, so the kids had them as regular car seats (built in harness) until they were old enough. Not inexpensive, but hey, they're my kids.

Does your Cruze have the center-fold rear seat? I do, and I found that it holds the seat belts into a position where I can reach the buckle without much struggle. Agreed, they are recessed to far (as are the LATCH connections, but most cars seem to have that problem).

A short seat belt extender may help, and they aren't very expensive.
