First gripe about my van


New member
We have an '05 Chevy Uplander and I just realized that the only place I can put a car seat back there is in the middle. Only the middle seat has the top tether. What totally bums me out is that every seat we have or have tried is super tall and it blocks my view out the back window. So sad. :(

Do you mean there is only one tether? Or that only the middle row has tethers?

According to the LATCH manual, you should have TAs on both of the outboard seats if it's a 5 pass model, and if it's a 3 row model, there should be one TA in the center of the 3rd row, as well as 2 TAs "on lower back of seat in center". I'm not 100% sure on what they mean by that, but I'll guess that the 2 TAs are for the outboard seats. Check your vehicle manual to be sure.

Hope that helps!
