    ***Happy update in post 8


    My hopes to fit 2 RF seats side by side in my new '12 Civic were crushed this evening. Well they would fit but Dustin wouldn't have any shoulder room next to them. I ended up with the seats outboard and he will go in the center. DaniCPST is sending me a Clek Oto and I'm crossing my fingers it will fit in the center. If not it isn't the end of the world since he 5 steps there. I just prefer him in a booster. Poor kid will have to climb over a seat to get in and he's TALL.

    Re: My 3 across is a no go :(

    I tried a FF radian in the spot we had the FR85 and it was a no go, the darn thing kept unbuckling. My DS is going to have to sit center and climb over the 3wo RF in my car too. I'm going to try see if he can climb under/ around the CA if I put it on pass side with front seat push forward.

    I'm giving this another try tonight. I will be trying different configurations with RNs, a Myride and a CCO. Wish me luck!

    I hope the Oto works! I was just getting on to let you know it came back to me for non sufficent postage. Grr. So I'll be getting it back out either this weekend or the early part of this coming week.

    I did it! I got the RN and CCO side by side! The CCO puzzles perfectly! And I can *almost* get a Literider to fit! The Oto will be absolutely perfect.

    About a 1.5" gap behind the LR so it's a no go.

    I'm jealous. I'm certain the '12 has to be wider than my '06. I'm glad you're getting it to work, though!
