    Just do NOT get the second row bench seat. You need captains chairs and have the two RF seats there. The FF & seatbelt would have to climb / crawl to the third row. There is only one TT in the third row.

    There isn't enough room to RF a seat in the third row, as far as I can tell. I tried a BLVD, Scenera & KF30 with no luck.

    I bought a used 06 AWD w/ entertainment package and under 50K miles on it for $11K!
    I third the Freestyle. Haven't owned one but I wanted one the last two car purchases. I had my heart set on a 09 Taurus X Limited AWD but ended up with the Flex.
    *DD N 5 Years 46 inches/44 lbs FF in a Marathon/Parkway SG/Turbo Booster/ and Harnessed Nautilus
    *DS H 7 Years 49 inches/51 lbs in a Monterey and Turbo Booster
    and a Harmony and Radian as back up seats
