    3 across in a rental car

    I think I know the answer to this but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas. I need to rent a vehicle and was trying to keep the price down by possibly renting a full size car which would be an Impala or Dodge Avenger. I know the Impala is about 3 inches wider but they won't guarantee me a certain model. I have 3 children:
    DD, 5 yrs, 39 lbs, FF in a Pioneer
    DS, 4 yrs, 40 lbs, FF in a Pioneer
    DD, 2 yrs, 26.5 lbs, RF in a RA ( I have both the 55 and previous gen that is not yet expired)

    Will these seats work together in either the Impala or Avenger. I might be able to make it work with purchasing one seat less than $100 but more than and the cost would not be advantageous over renting a van.

    Thanks for your help.

    Are you flying also? How much driving will you be doing with the rental?

    No, not flying. Just driving from FL to AL which should be an 8-10 hr trip. The van I thought I could rent is not available. So now not sure what to do.
