    Britax Marathon 70 fits rearfacing center 2004 Acura TSX

    Just wanted to share this info that the Britax Marathon 70 fits rear facing in the center of a 2004 Acura TSX . This was my then 13 month old rear facing center seat of the Acura TSX. We had it this way for quite a while, then was forward facing center and now sits passenger side forward at 3 years.

    Also have a 2011 Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL that fit center rear facing in a 2007 Acura MDX however the front seats were not reclined much.

    Hi, your Marathon in the photo appears to be installed using the lower LATCH anchors in the center in your TSX. If so, that's not an allowable install in the center in the TSX, only a seatbelt installation is permissable in the center in that vehicle. There are two designated sets of lower LATCH anchors outboard (passenger side and driver's side) in the TSX for outboard LATCH installs only, and Acura/Honda doesn't allow borrowing of the innermost lower LATCH anchors from each side to do a lower LATCH anchor install in the center.
