We actually have the Cosco seats, one baby and one toddler seat, and they have been good, are relatively cheap, and have good safety ratings.
Always check your owners manual for the proper anchor points. In my case I quickly discovered the '08 Forester only recommends the passenger or drivers side rear positions. .....I was wrong. There are only two pairs of latch points at those positions. If there was a center latch position there would be an additional pair of anchor points (a total of 6). My Challenger has 6 so I am able to install the car seat in the middle as designed.
