    Question Need help with 3 across in Nissan Xterra

    Hi there, I searched the forum for a photo, but haven't had luck. Sorry for any inconvenience answering but we are in a rushed pinch.

    We have a Nissan Xterra and a Chrysler T&C. The T&C broke down and so we are down to only the Xterra, however we can't fit all 3 of our carseats in the back. Need suggestions.

    6 year old who is 47", 45lbs in a Britax Frontier 90
    2.5 year old who is 26 lbs and not sure on her height but she is just about 1.5" below the shell of her Britax Marathon and would like to continue RF
    A 7mo in a Chicco Nextfit

    What is the best way to arrange seats. We are considering buying 2 radians or 2 foonfs for the younger kids. I want to keep the frontier if it will fit. We don't have a buy buy baby in state to try out seats, so need the best advice we can get before we make this purchase.

    Thanks so much!

    Re: Need help with 3 across in Nissan Xterra

    Hi and welcome-

    I found this in the Successful Three Across thread:

    Make/Model/Year: Nissan Xterra, 2001
    Install method: All seat belt
    Configuration of seats: RF driver, FF center, FF passenger
    Seats used: Combi Coccoro, Radian XTSL, Recaro ProSport
    Checked by a Tech: I'm a tech
    Sorry, not all that helpful.

    The Nextfit is kind of a beast, so that one probably wont work. Not sure if a Radian would puzzle next to it?

    You may want to poke around the Three Across thread and get an idea for what seats puzzle well together in tight spaces, then order online from somewhere that has free shipping and free returns.

    Good luck!
