    Easy third row access?

    I'm looking for a car where I can keep all three car seats buckled into the second tow, yet still have access to the third row. Any suggestions? I've only been able to find the Pathfinder.

    Re: Easy third row access?

    What car seats do you currently have? Are you able/willing to trade out any seats?

    I know that the IMMI Go (formerly Safety 1st Go Hybrid) can stay installed while you move the seat of some minivans.

    The Santa Fe might work. With the way the second-row seats move out of the way, certain seats can stay installed while you move them. Here's a link to CarseatBlog's review of the Santa Fe, which I think includes video of the seats moving: http://carseatblog.com/27693/youve-g...ndai-santa-fe/

    The Santa Fe with 2nd row bench has overlapping belts center/driver side which is not recommended for car seat installs and would restrict 3 across ability.

    How much do they overlap? I've only used the one with captain's chairs.
