I am trying to decide whether or not to order these. I know I don't want the versatility package, as the third row seat is of no use to us.<P>We already have a "collection" of booster seats, including a pair of Recaro's and two Britax's. The Volvo dealers around here say they don't have any cars with integrated booster sheets available to show, so I can't compare them with our "portable" ones.<P>I look forward to reading anything people have to offer regarding Volvo's integrated booster seats. I would also appreciate links to sites with good photos of them. Thanks!

I have them in my 2002 V70 T5 and have found them to be quite useful. My eight year-old, who is big for his age and quite stubborn would greatly object to sitting in a traditional booster seat (because "he's not a baby"), but I've had no problem in getting him to use the built in version. It makes the seat belt fit him correctly and allows him a better view of whats going on outside the car. They're easy to use -- he opens and closes it himself. And now I won't need to buy one when my two year-old outgrows her car seat.<P>This link is to an article about an award Volvo won for them and has a picture.<BR> <A HREF="http://ca.autos.yahoo.com/011107/11/ker9.html" TARGET=_blank>http://ca.autos.yahoo.com/011107/11/ker9.html</A> <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Chipshot:<BR><B>I am trying to decide whether or not to order these.

We have two V70's... one with the versatility package and the other with just the integrated booster seats. We wouldn't have bought the cars without them... and in both cases had the dealer swap out booster seats from another car (with matching interior). We <B>swear</B> by them.<P>Not only does my wife and I appreciate not having to swap out/lug around yet another piece of extra child equipment when adults want to use that area or when we need to fold the seats down to haul large items, etc.<P>More importantly, our older son is proud to sit in his "big boy booster seat" (as he calls it). And his little brother can't wait to join him as soon as he grows out of his baby seat (which is very soon).<P>Seriously. I emphatically recommend them. Give your old booster seats to your in-laws or sell them on eBay or something. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by daimoni (edited 09-11-2002).]

Re: (daimoni)

I surprised my wife with an '02 V70 XC for her 30th birthday. She was a little unsure the XC would meeting our family's changing needs as the children got older, but was sold when I showed her the integrated boosters and the third row seating!<p>Our children are just 2-1/2 years and 7 months old, so we have not put them to use yet. But we do look forward to the day when we can discard their child seats.<br>
