Hi, I have a 1998 Honda Civic, a 5-yr old in a booster seat, and a baby on the way (Oct 30th, 2006!) My husband and I want to use the latch on the infant car seat, but since our car was made before 2002, it does not come equipped with a latch support in the back. We are considering adding a hole and using the adaptor our Honda dealer sold us, but are not certain it would meet all safety regulations. We also need to know the safest placement of both booster seat and infant car seat in our civic. There is so little room back there. Could you please help? Thank you, Rebecca
