    A 99 Oddy won't work for me right???

    I've been in the market for a 2001 or newer Odyssey and haven't been able to find one. My Dad works for a car dealer so I'll be getting a deal when we find one. So today he found a 99, but from what I can understand from what I read, it's not going to work for us because of the tether anchor situation.
    Our kids/seats are as follows (in my Durango that we'd be selling):
    Faith - hbb - third row
    Griffin - hbb - third row
    Rayn - Radian or Apex - second row captains chair
    Riley - TF - second row Captains chair. (Forward facing contrary to my siggy pic. He's 35lbs now)

    I want something that I can get three across in the back row with eventually, because we plan on having another baby in the next year or two so we'd have Faith/Rayn (in the Radian)/Griffin in the third row, and then Riley and new baby in captain's chairs.

    We're in CANADA so I need to be able to tether at least in the centre of the third row and under BOTH of the 2nd row captain's chairs. Is this doable??? I need to give him an answer today. Please help!

    This site may be of help to you regarding the Top Tether locations for the Odyssey. http://www.car-safety.org/odyssey.html

    "1999: 2x 8mm threaded weld nuts in lower rear trim panel for 2nd or 3rd row use. "

    You will not have latch.

    I have a 1999 Odyssey. It will not work for you. The captains seats use the same tether anchors as the rear outboard seats (in the cargo area), and you have to fold down the third row, plus have ridiculously long tethers to do so. When my DD is FFing, we will tether to a third row seatbelt since we don't need those seating positions for passengers.
