    LATCH on Ford Fiesta

    The vehicle is a 2011 Ford Fiesta. Does anyone know if the LATCH for outboard can be used in the center position? Does that make sense?

    Yes, Ford allows borrowing in this vehicle, as long as the restraint allows installation withnon-standard distance for the anchors. Spacing is 15" (standard is 11").

    Re: LATCH on Ford Fiesta

    The 2011 LATCH manual indicates Evenflo does not allow borrowing to do a center LATCH installation. Evenflo allows LATCH installs only with dedicated sets of LATCH with the standard 11 inch spacing between lower anchors.

    Re: LATCH on Ford Fiesta

    Evenflo rep Dave Sander said in a webinar last week that that is going to change. It's now anything over 11", and it IS retroactive. He said that will be reflected in the 2013 LATCH manual, but it is ok now.
