HI....I try and find info from Consumer Reports, as they have done testing on them and rated them according to how they perform.  i'm not a subscriber though and can only access the infact info.  If you or someone you know is a subscriber, I would recommend looking at their listings.  On person did say that they had tested only 4 or 5 though. 



I'm currently looking at getting the Sunshine Kids XT carseat.  We are going to have three kids in a car, and this carseat is narrow because it has a steel core (not just plastic) and good side impact protection.



As for strollers, we had the Quinny and it was great for joggine, corners are a bit hard to make fast though.  We currently use a Phil and Ted Sport as it holds two children.  My husband and I both prefer it to the Quinny as it's much easier to manuevre.  The Quinny had shock absorbing springs, and the Phil and Ted doesn't though.  The Quinny is bulkier...P&T leave much more space in my car trunk.  Quinny's handle reaches higher than P&T.



Hope that helps!

We have a graco brand that has worked great for us. Has the 5 point harness which is easy to use. My sister also likes this brand. Hope that helps you.
