    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    Make/Model/Year: Subaru Legacy (not sure of year but pre lower anchor)
    Install method: outboard seats are lap/shoulder w/locking clip (due to lateral lift) & lapbelt in the middle. All 3 positions required the belt stalk to be twisted 3 full twists due to long belt stalks
    Configuration of seats: all Rear-facing (RF)
    Seats used: 3 Evenflo Embrace infant seat w/bases
    Checked by a Tech: Yes

    This was a TIGHT fit and honestly I was shocked that it worked. Parents are due in July with triplets but have already said they are getting a minivan in a few weeks.

    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    Just achieved it! Chrysler T&C 2001 model - I got the follow seats across the back bench seat:

    OP - RA f/f
    Middle - Graco Cargo
    OD - RA r/f

    Not checked by tech.
    All installed using seatbelts instead of LATCH.

    Now dreaming of buying a couple of Radians to make the fit even better...

    2002 Honda Odyssey, 3rd row, all seatbelts:

    FF Radian, FF Roundabout, FPSV booster

    I put the booster driver's side outboard to minimize the chance of unbuckling the center seat, but ideal would be the booster center.

    2006 Scion xB - 3 seats across

    I just wanted to post this information so it was out there. I know some other threads speculate that it might be possible to fit three car seats across the back of a 2006 Scion xB. It is indeed possible. We have done it, using 2 Sunshine Kids Radian 65s (outboard LATCH), and one Fisher-Price Safe Voyage Booster (middle shoulder belt). When one Radian is rear-facing, it pushes the front passenger seat up quite snuggly, because it is such a tall seat. But it is possible.

    Don't have to upgrade to some bigger car just yet.

    Re: 2006 Scion xB - 3 seats across

    Good to know, thanks for posting. I'm going to move your post to our "Successful 3 across" thread, where it will no doubt be helpful for other xB owners. I our '08 xB (technically DH's car but he shares it when he works at home) and prefer to drive it instead of my van around town to save on gas.

    1996 Grand Caravan

    Third row bench
    FF SKRadian/RF MA/FF MA

    These were very tight together, but individually tight. I installed two, then took the first one out, got all three, then took the center one out, and then redid it all I am a Tech.

    I have also had Cosco High Rise Backless/FF Radian/ Cosco High Rise

    Difficult to buckle the boosters, but doable

    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    2008 CRV, same model as 2007 CRV

    Snugride without base | FF Safety First Uptown | FF Cosco seat to 40lbs (My friend didn't know the name of it). All with seatbelt installs. Not checked by a tech, but I checked all seats independently. The snugride base fits, but you can't snap the infant seat in, maybe a narrower infant seat would work.

    I can get FF Safety First Uptown center | FF Como driver outboard. The snugride base can fit in the passenger outboard but you can't snap the infant seat in it. I would try a narrower infant seat and this might work.

    I'm going to test a Radian center one of these days at the Right Start. If it works with seatbelt in center position, I think many other seats could fit either side.
