Carseat that will fit in a Dodge Magnum?

My sister drives a Dodge Magnum. The seats are really slanted and hard to get a carseat to fit in well. The female part of the seatbelt is also long. I tried an Evenflo SureRide carseat in her car yesterday, and the seatbelt ended up all wonky. It didn't fit well at all. The SureRide was a baby shower gift, so we are returning it today. I installed my Britax Decathlon in her car and it fit perfectly. She can't really spend over $200. I suggested a Roundabout, because you can find those for 150ish. But I wonder if he'll grow out of it too quickly. Her baby is 6 months today, and weighs 22lbs. He's a moose.
 
Any other suggestions for a seat for her Magnum? Thanks :-)

If you could fit Roundabout in it then you'd be able to fit Marathon too.. The retail price is high but I'm sure you can get a good deal on it around this time.
The FF weight limit on Marathon is way higher than Roundabout.. (70 as compared to 55lbs). MA has all the features of RA, plus Harness ultra guard system and removable cushion..

Here's a comparison between the two to help you understand better:

Another cheaper option would be True Fit Coonvertible..This one's got good weight/height range too... but honestly, I'm not sure how well it would fit in your Dodge..

However, I'm adding the site links of these seats, in case you want to check them out:

You might want to take a look at this Car Seat Finder to find something that fits your budget and is also the perfect size for your car.

All the best with the search!:)
