    Kia Sedona & Car Seat

    A relative is going to be giving us a Kia Sedona. It is either a 2004or 2005. The last time I rode in it, I realized that the 2nd row folds forward so people can get to the 3rd row. If the second row folds forward then I assume I can't put my ff carseat in that row, and putting the car seat in the 3rd row doesn't seem practical if i need to give or get something from my child while I am driving. If anyone can help me or give me ideas let me know. Thanks!

    The second row is a bench, not captain's chairs?

    I'd say put the carseat in the second row anyway, if that's how the vehicle will be used most often. Will you be hauling people that need the third row very often?

    It's fine to have it in the 2nd row. Just move it when you need to access the third row.
