My wife and I are expecting twins in Oct. We have been searching for car seats in area stores. When reading the owners manual I came across info on Isofix fastners. I know that the U.S. is slow to put out the Isofix car seats probaly not until the year 2002. I was wondering if anybody knows about the Volvo isofix car seats if availble or any company that makes the isofix car seat?

2001 Volvos come with the ISOFIX attachments but Volvo has had a delay in introducing it's own ISOFIX seat. Fisher Price makes one that you can use.

The Volvo seats were recalled just a week or two after they were introduced. Haven't heard of a reissue date yet.

Britax will be coming out with their Flagship "Roundabout" convertible seat with ISOFIX soon. But then, they've been promising it for a year now. The Fisher Price is the only one I know of that's on the maret now.

Good luck, and let us know what you find.

thank you for your posts. i found out from my dealer to install the isofix it costs $208.00 for both back seats. there is another car seat that uses this system called cosco triad which is less expensive that is sold at k-mart.

FYI:
Britax is now shipping their Isofix seat. They call it the "Expressway Isofit" ("http://www.childseat.com/whats_new/whatsnew.cfm") so you might want to check it out.

Congrats on your twins, man. I've got a 4.5 year old and a 3 year old. They play with the center console the whole time...by the way--my son's name is erik...

The Expressway is only forward-facing, unfortunately, so it can't be used for the first year. Why they chose to do that one first is beyond me. I just shelled out $225 for the Roundabout Advantage with NO ISOFIX. I'm bummed. I have to cars with ISOFIX in the seats, and nothing to use them with.

cynberg, Thanks for the kind congrats. the twins are two girls!!! I have out numbered myself


We plan to go with the roundabout britax(x2)car seats. If it makes you feel better Darell we have to shell out $400.00 for car seats!!! assuming that we do not get them as shower gifts.

Eric -

Seriously consider the Advantage (it is the Roundabout's high end). All the same features of the Roundabout with the great advantages of a harness/headrest adjuster knob on the side of the seat, a better teather system, a recline mode on the base, and plusher seating. Lots of great upgrades for about $25 extra. Just be sure to look into it before plunking down the cash.

My daughter is 9 months old, and she'll be in this seat for the next couple of years, so an extra $25 is insignificant.
