Hi Flea. Having had 5 kids in car seats, i will answer respectively for each one:
1.) N Y N N N -- the problem w #2 was that my seat was recalled but i was never notified, despite immediate registration. Found out about it reading Consumer Reports 6 months later.
2.) Y Y N N N
3.) N N N N N
4.) Y Y Y Y Y
5.) Have never been in a wreck with a car seat in the car
6.) Y Y Y Y Y
7.) YN N N N
8.) The first car seat had an overhead bar that swung in front from behind. One of the knobs on the sides holding it in the hole snapped.
9.) N N N Y Y Wipe-Washable synthethetic materials made my last two babies really hot in warm weather. They weren't breathable.
10.) They were more so in the past (year 2000). I feel it is better now.
11.) We live within an uncomfortably tight budget, yes, and always have
12.) No accidents
13.)---
14.)Y N Y N N
15.)Autism Spectrum Disorder with Dysgraphia
16.) Y Y Y Y Y
17.) The sides, where the seat belts are firmly wrapped around the seats
18.)2000 to present, 5 car seats of all age
groups
19.) What? If i understand correctly, yes and no. It is very difficult to fit three car seats in the back of a car--the bases cover the seat belt buckles. My children are all petite but bigger kids might need the room, and plus more car seat means more between the child and the wreckage.
20.) i have had Graco, Evenflo, the Alpha Omega, and Safety First. Latter was best car seat but had synthetic material heat issue.
