Most cars have recommendations in the owners manual of which spot is best. Mine is on passenger side, because that was recommended best for my car.

Mine is behind the passenger side. We wanted it in the middle, but my Jetta is not equipped with latch in the center; you have to check your car's manual. :)

Depends on your car. In my old car the safest place was in the middle. In my current car, DS sits behind the passenger seat (there is no middle seat).

Mine too.
Having it in the middle will protect your LO God forbid there is a side impact accident.

My car doesn't have a latch in the middle either so we have it behind the passenger seat.

i have a minivan. Infant seat is on passenger side, toddler is behind the driver. Pre-minivan (and 2nd kid) I had a Rogue, and infant seat was on the passenger side (no LATCH in the center seat).

Re: Where is your infant carseat??

In our minivan (baby is in there 99% of the time), she's behind the driver (captain's seats) and older DD is behind passenger.

In our car, which the baby has been in maybe 2 or 3 times ever, she's behind the driver and older DD is behind the passenger.

ETA: We have Latch in all of the spots I mentioned, thankfully.

Re: Where is your infant carseat??

we had ours behind the passenger seat. Our convertible seat is there now as well. our middle seatbelt clip in our car is broken. and DH has long legs and needs the seat back pretty far so it was best to keep it on the passenger side.

i think it all depends on what is best for your car set up.

when I had one DC, it was in the middle, now that I have two DC, the carriers behind the passenger side and my DS's carseat is behind the driver

ETA: when i had my carseat inspected when i was prgnant with #1, the officer said they tend to go by your car's manual. Mine said the middle was safest, but for some cars it the sides
