Have you tried cleaning the buckle out and see if maybe its a build up of gunk in there? You can use a pipe cleaner to clean it out and rense it out using warm water. Maybe that could help. How much room does he have in his current seat? How much growing room does your dd have in her Marathon. Is it a girlie seat? How long do you want to keep her in a 5pt harness? Do you like her Nautilus? If so I would buy your son a Nautilus for your car. You could pass seats down when your dd is older if its not a girlie seat. If she outgrows the 5pt harness at 6 you could pass that seat down in the least used car and buy her a booster only seat. Its just a thought. Dawn

Myself, I plan on getting my son a Britax Frontier 85 when he out grows his First Years True Fit or when his younger sibling outgrows the Scenera I plan on using for him/her and I move baby into the TF to keep them RFing. My DS is 2yr 3months and is 33-34lbs and 37-38 inches tall (he won't stand or lie still to get an accurate measure, lol). So I know in order to keep him harnessed to 6 or maybe 7 I'm gonna need a very tall seat. JMO.
