3 car seats????
Can you fit 3 car seats in the second row? I have a 4 yr old (only needs booster, a 1yr old and my wife is expecting our 3rd (due in May :) ).

I was soooo set on getting the GC, but with another child obn the way I am worried (as is my wife) that there will not be enough room back there for all three and/or it will be a pain in the rear to get them all in.

Anyone out there have 3 car seats that can post some observations/pics?

If it doesn't make sense, I'll have to buy the 11 Explorer :(

i dont know first hand but i cant imagine an explorer having more room to manage than the new GC.

i have a friend who has two car seats back in his 2010 GC with the looks of enough room for a third in the middle- although its not a 2011 model year, the new WK2 still has more room than any older one- id say.

either way gl-

Only reason I said Explorer, is because it has a third row seat.

It will be tight. I have a car seat on one side, and a booster on the other in my '11 overland.

You can put a car seat on both sides with the booster in the middle.. but it will for sure be a tight squeeze.

i hear ya but the third row seat is over rated id say...

since were on the third row seat- are children (car seat age-wise) allowed to be seated back there. i thought children of that age must be car seated in the middle only...?

i alwasy thought, car seat is a NO - NO in the front and WAY WAY back. but i dont know for sure though-

I rented a 2011 GC the other day and we had two car seats in it. IMO you could put 3, BUT there is no way I would want to do that ever day. It would be very very crowded.

I have done it with 1 regular car seat and 2 boosters ( reg in the middle) but it is very tight.

FWIW....the New Dodge Durango is based on the same platform.....and will have the third row seats. It's going to be out very soon. I'd say its gonna go toe to toe with the explorer (and win).
