Do you have any links (besides the transportation highway one that only has one safety rating and lots of ratings regarding style) to websites with actual safety ratings for car seats?

THANKS!!!

try that one. They also have a link to what models will fit into what cars. As far as i know right now for infant car seats the highest rated is the chicco keyfit. Second is the graco. they are both wonderful seats. In the long run you will have more options with the graco since the chicco does not fit into most stroller adaptors. I had a hard time buying a double stroller since i have a chicco car seat.. it was a real PITA!!

And I agree with her.

Also, try car-seats.org, it's a wonderful forum.
