    2007 Matrix

    We are considering buying a 2007 Toyota Matrix. I have 2 children in car seats. 1 fwd facing, 1 rear facing and an 11 yer old (on the small size) can I safely put all 3 in the back seat?

    Hi! There don't seem to be belt overlap issues. With the right seats you could probably do it. It might be very tight and you might need to get different car seats depending what you have. What seats are your children in?
