    3 Across in Rental Car in BRAZIL SOLVED!

    Just wanted to update all of you who helped me figure out what to do with our rental car problem in Brazil.

    http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=275157

    The rental agency Localiza offered us a Renault Duster for just slightly more than the Fiesta. We were able to FF Sureride RF Radian and FF Sureride relatively easily. The Duster is similar to an Outback or Mazda CX5. It doesn't have locking seat belts but I was able to use a locking clip with the Surerides and the lap belt in the center with the Radian. None of them are tethered. I tried really hard to find a usable tether point and couldn't but the seat belt installs are really solid. I realize this is not ideal but it's definitely better than using a bubblebum and vest with our 4 year-olds.

    Thank you all for your help. I'm so happy we were able to keep everyone harnessed and not break the bank!

    Thank you! We are in Brazil! It's been a great adventure so far. Loading and unloading the kids from the car has gotten A LOT of surprised stares. I'm pretty sure we're the only ones around with three kids under 5 or at least the only ones who leave the house.
