    Radian, Scenera, Scenera

    Would these 3 work in a typical car? Or are 2 Scenera's too wide?

    They would both be RF, and the Radian is usually FF, but could be put RF if necessary.
    Do they always need pool noodles to install?

    Re: Radian, Scenera, Scenera

    That would work in most cars I'll say. I could get that combo in a 05 Rav 4 and that is a pretty small back seat. So I'll lay money that it would fit just about anywhere.

    Sceneras don't ALWAYS need a noodle but a lot of times they do. Thye install easy however.

    I'd think about doing (RF Scenera) (FFing Radian) (RFing Scenera) if you can. The middle child can crawl under the RFing seat or they can climb over the other seat.

    And also try the install without LATCH. The lower ancors tend to be moved towards the center of the car so when you try using LATCH for 3 across it pulls the 2 outsides seats in a little too much. Using the seatbelt will give you a couple of extra inches.

    Re: Radian, Scenera, Scenera

    Won't work in a Corolla. BUT, Radian, Scenera, Uptown/Avenue WILL. When the Scenera and the Uptown/Avenue are next to each other, they puzzle REALLY well, especially if one is slightly more upright. The Sceneras have a piece at the foot that won't sit next to each other in my car though. But I could get 2 Sceneras outboard with a Radian in the middle. I have to use a noodle to get a 30 degree recline with either of these seats when used outboard. I can get 30 without a noodle in the middle but need a noodle for 45.
