    Pathfinder Question

    I currently lease a 2016 Ford Escape, we have just over 1 year left on our lease so we are starting to look at options. We have 1 son who is 2.5 and rides in a Britax Frontier. We are hoping to foster/adopt a 2nd child but we will not (most likely) have more than 2 kids. But I am also looking at scenarios when we could be watching a cousin or friend so I really want the 3rd row. I'm not opposed to vans but am really hoping to stay with a suv. My husband gets a discount on certain brands and Nissan is one of them and I really like the Pathfinder.

    So my question....i know some vehicles have issues/incompatibilities with car seats. Is there anything I should be aware of? Am I right in assuming we most likely wouldn't have any issues fitting up to 3/4 kids in car seats/boosters? At most only 1 would be rear facing most likely....

    I live in a very snowy/hilly state so I really want SUV, something that performs well in snow. Often we are needing to be out before roads are all plowed etc. Thanks!

    Re: Pathfinder Question

    I love our Pathfinder! We have a '15 Pathfinder that we purchased when we used to live in Colorado. It performs very well in the snow, and has a high clearance which was helpful when we were on roads with snow ruts. We've had a Britax Frontier as well as a variety of boosters installed in it with no problems. I haven't had anything except no-back boosters in the 3rd row, so I can't guarantee no issues there with other types of seats due to the fixed headrests in that row.
