      What vehicals come with a built in booster seat? We have some friends with a caravan that has built in booster seats in the middle row. I know Volvo had something similar in some of there cars (can't remember which ones) but what other vehicals have them?

      Those are the only ones I can think of. A completely overrated feature IMO.

      These are a whopping 15 bucks.

      But are they easier and more convenient to use when the seat in question is sometimes used by a small child needing the infant or booster seat, but sometimes by an adult or larger child?

      It's not about the feature, it's about the BENEFIT!

      It is my understanding (double check with the manufacturer) that these are STRICTLY boosters for bigger kids, they are NOT infant seats and I wonder about their compatibility with an infant seat. An infant eat is it's own special thing with specific mounting.

      That one I showed you just plop on the seat, the kids sits in it, you put the belt around him under the handles. It's about the quickest, easiest thing every and you just go from car to car with it.

      It depends on how old/big your child is.

      It goes from rearward facing infant seat to forward facing infant seat to forward facing car seat to forward facing booster seat.

      There are height/weight/age requirements for each one.

      I think the caravan one works with 25-55lb children
