    Will a Marathon fit in a Nissan Frontier? was Re: I wanted to like the Frontier..

    We are looking to buy a Frontier with 4 doors. Can a Britax Marathon seat fit in the back seat? Just curious! Thanks

    Hi, I moved your post to a new thread because I think you're asking about a 4-door Nissan Frontier, and the thread you originally posted to is about a Britax carseat called the Frontier, two different things with the same model name.

    Nissan has an online child restraint fit guide for various Nissan models at http://www.nissanusa.com/snugkids/ It might give you some leads on seats that are compatible in the Frontier. Unfortunately, I don't see the Britax Marathon listed in the guide for the Frontier Crew Cab or King Cab versions. You could also try out any carseat(s) you might already own in the Frontier when you test drive the vehicle to see if you can achieve a successful installation.

    My dad drives a 4 door Nissan Frontier crew cab. It has a full size back seat. The Marathon fits great both RF and FF. For rear-facing, if you need the 45* recline (for a young infant/newborn), it would likely need to go in the middle to give the front legroom. We started putting my little one in that truck at about a year, so her seat was fairly upright and can go behind either the driver or passenger.
    Hope that helps! sorry I don't have any pictures.
