I am having trouble securely installing a rear facing car seat in my father-in-laws '08 Scion XB.

I have towels rolled up under the 'front' of the child seat. Even with this, the child seat tilts to the back of the car. The 'rear' of the child seat is coming up off the bench car seat. We are going on a road trip and I need help.

We have never had a problem with our own cars, but for some reason his car hates me.

I have a 2009 Scion xB ... the owner's manual had a diagram how to properly install child seats ... see if his does.

If not, you may call a local "women's clinic" and ask if they have someone who gives advice on installing child seats - or knows of someone that does. I know the local clinics in my area do.

I checked the manual yesterday. I am putting it in just like they show.
I have put the same car seat in three other vehicles and have not had any issues with any of them.

You should never use anything to prop the seat. Take it to a police station,fire station, or even some babies r us will have someone to show you the correct way to instal a seat. Just call before

Yes you should, when it means keeping the seat level. Check any installation guide, they tell you to use either a pool noodle or a tightly rolled up towel. It's to keep the seat in a level position. The towel is at the rear of the car's bench seat, in order to keep the front of the child safety seat from pointing downward. If we didn't do this then my child's head would be close to the rear of the bench seat. Not happening.
