Best and Worst Child Booster Seats

November 24, 2016

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently evaluated 53 new models of child booster seats, and found that almost all of them performed well, with the exception of Costco's Easy Elite and Highback 2-in-1 DX.

Booster seats are for children ages 4 and older who no longer fit in child-safety seats, but are still too small for three-point seat belts. Some children need booster seats until at 12 or even higher. Children using booster seats are 45% less likley to be injured in a crash.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
