    Radian in Pontiac Torrent?

    Anyone tried this? I need them RF in the vehicle - tips, suggestions welcome. I didn't see this car listed in the Radian Successful INstall thread (unless I overlooked it).

    We have to take our vehicle in tomorrow for repair and will have the Torrent as a 2-day replacement.

    Re: Radian in Pontiac Torrent?

    Well, we have the loaner car.

    It is a 5 passenger vehicle (Torrent) with THREE LATCH positions in the back seat (never seen that before!) and THREE TETHER ANCHOR locations! Very cool!

    Radian installed well RF outboard with LATCH. Was impossible to install RF with seatbelt because the seatbelt pulled the carseat waaay close to the door and caused the Radian's RF boot/foot thingy to pop off the seat so that it was sitting in the air space between seat and door. Make sense? So it was installed with LATCH - easy breezy.

    Installed the other Radian FF in the center, with LATCH and tether. Again, super simple.

    SS1 outboard with LATCH - very easy as well, though would have preferred to install w/seatbelt but the seatbelt mechanism was stuck and I couldn't get it to pull out.

    Eager to get our own van back though because I prefer keeping dd RF. Couldn't get both Radians RF in the Torrent.
