    We also have a Mazda3. I would put the 3.5yo FF in the Radian, and the 2.5yo RF in the Avenue. I think those would be the easiest fit. Just be sure that the Avenue is not part of the recall.

    For the CR-V, I would use TFs for both kids, and keep the Boulelvard as a back-up seat for another car if ever needed.
