Question 2005 Dodge Durango, 3 car seats in the middle



Good morning,

We currently have an infant in her rear facing car seat, and found out we will be having twins in April. We are looking for an SUV that will fit 3 car seats in that middle row (i'm sure this question is a common one). I have found a deal on a 2005 Dodge Durango, would that middle seat allow for 3 car seats? If so, which would be the best to get, thank you for your help!

If they wouldn't fit, what are the top vehicle recommendations for the middle seat to fit 3 rear facing car seats?

Thank you!!

Looks completely possible in photos! Positives: looks fairly wide and flat, adjustable and removable head restraints, and lap-shoulder belts in all seats. Possible negatives: Plastic pieces covering seat hinges could interfere with some seats, so try before you buy or buy with a good return policy. I don't know where the top tethers are, which is something to consider if you are planning to have this vehicle when the kids are forward-facing. Someone else can probably find this information for you more easily. Do you have friends with child seats you might be able to try with yours in the car before you buy it?
