Is this site accurate?

It seems to promise 3-across successes that other sites (like car-seat.org) suggest are very difficult or impossible. I also don't see RF/FF configurations explained. Is it giving false hope?

You would have to contact the website owner to ask how they obtain their information. In looking at some of the reviews, they don't seem to be "hands-on" at all.

I would not trust that site. I've seen some innacurate info there, although it does seem overall well intentioned. I have major doubts about some of the 3 across suggestions. It seems many of the recommendations are simply based on total width and not actual installs.

He doesn't seem to understand that carseats can be (and frequently are) outgrown by height, and that you might, depending on the child, get longer RF time out of a seat with a lower weight limit but a taller height.

I think it belongs to a CSO member named "CarSafetyGuy". I checked his site when looking for 3 across and found that the configurations he showed were took on different forums or blog, namely the " Successful 3 across" thread on here...

Yes, he was a member here for a while when he created his website- he appears to have data-mined our three-across thread and other resources without even the courtesy of a link back to us.
