hi guys, me and the mrs are expecting our first very soon, im having a right ball ache finding a group 0 seat that will fit for sure in the lex, its a 2001 model with no isofix.

ive had my eye on the maxi cosi cabriofix with the non isofix easyfix base as this is small and not to cumbersome., has anyone or know anyone with this seat in a lex? according the maxi cosi site it says that it will fit, but according to halfrauds the idiots told me they dont know.

can anyone shed some light on my headache or reccoment a seat that will fit. i would ideally like one with a base so i can remove the seat easily rather than having to secure it all of the time when we get in the car

any help would be great.

thanks.

Any baby seat will any car. All baby seats are designed to take a 3 point seat belt. I have 5 kids and over the years of having them have had many cars. As long as you folow the fitting instructions you be ok. Had a mini 16 years ago with first born had to put seat belts in that to put the seat in as a 1978 mini didnt have rear belts. JUst be aware that baby seats and front air bags dont mix to well. Some manufactures enable youto turn the passenger side air bag of but not seen this on my model Lexus.

Get something sorted out and try not to worry too much you will have enough sleepless night when the little one arrives. Happy days ahead though pal be lucky

thanx for the reply. i ended up buying the maxi cosi cabriofix and just securing it with the 3 point seatbelt. i was hoping to get a base aswell but the ones that secure with the seatbelt rest on the belt clasp risking buckle crush. i wanted to do that so its easier for the mrs to get the seat in and out as i didnt want to have to wrap the seat belt over the seat all of the time. but seems like its what im going to have to do because of the location on the clasp.

thanks.
