Hope that helps

ditto...sorry for the late response, it has been working out just fine, but it is a pain to buckle with them being so recessed and the seats/boosters cover the buckle openings in the seat.

thanks, my kids are in 5 pt harnesses or infant seats right now so I wont have to deal with the reaching other than installing the seats.. but glad to see there has been success installing 3... how bout the fixed head rests? i worry those will interfere with my forward facing seats.. i guess reclining the seat might help?

Re: Rear Seat question

Fwiw.. I have 3 full carseats across my '12. Graco infant base/carrier passenger side, graco nautilous 3n1(wide 20" at base) in center, and sunshine kids radian 65(narrow 14" at base, 17" at widest point at back) behind driver. Latch install on outboard seats and inner seat with belt slightly offset from center to make room or carrier clicking in and out. All seats are individually tight. Figured I would post so other people like me dot have to have second thoughts on a wk2 and 3 car seats fitting. Plus the room for the kids legs is amazing compared to my Tacoma doublecab! And the wifey doesn't have to sit on the dashboard with the rear facing infant seat.

>and inner seat with belt slightly offset from center to make room .......

So you are using the regular seat belt that's originally designed for the middle seat. It would be nice if you have pictures of the setup to show us.

Re: Rear Seat question

I will snap a pic later but ya just using te seat belt and the center seat is just off center toward the radian. It's probably not more than an inch off center. I had to do this in my Tacoma too but they are all installed with seatbelts in that. Found in car seat forums using belts over latch buys u more 3 across room.. Will get pics as soon as I can(currently out numbered 3-1 with kids 3.5 and under hahah

Re: Rear Seat question

The other potential issue with putting the infant car seat in the center position is - will the buttom cushion in the center position be flat enough to not causing the infant car seat to wobble?

Re: Rear Seat question

We have had an infant seat in the middle using the latch ( yes it fits and is ok to do so) and have had no problems whatsoever.

Re: Rear Seat question





The rear shot shows the center slightly off center. Shot from front doesn't show it as well. Figured I would put this out there cause I had a heck of a time finding anything online about 3 across other than the one car set check that did a booster, convertible, and infant. I prefer to keep my kids 5 point harnessed as long as I can. Plus they don't have to reach between seats for seatbelts.
