Out of curiosity, on which side did you install your car seat? Did you install it in the middle, behind the driver or behind the passenger side? I heard the middle was the safest in case of side impacts. I also heard behind the driver's side was safe because in case of a head on collision, the driver is instinctively likely to swerve out of their own harm's way in self preservation. We installed ours behind the passenger seat so that I could reach over to baby if I needed to during a stop. When we had it checked, the lady said middle was best, but she liked behind the passenger because then you wouldn't be in the way of traffic when you get the car seat in and out. I would also like to know where you installed your car seat if you have a minivan. And also, those parents with multiple carseats, where they have them installed.
