Safest seat in 2000 Odyssey



Safest seat in 2000 Odyssey

Which seat is the safest for a single car seat in a 2000 Odyssey? Middle of magic seat? 2nd row with chair in center. Does it make a difference? I have a cosco Alpha Omega with tether strap. Thanks for the help, and my two year old thanks you too.


All seats in the back are OK

All seats in back are safe if the carseat fits properly there, as long as that position is allowed by the owner's manuals. The differences from one to another are fairly minor.

Moving the 2nd row passenger-side seat to the center is somewhat safer than the others. It is farthest from any point of impact.

The third row center and 2nd row outboard seats are similar in risk. The third row outboards would be slightly less desirable than the others, but still safe choices compared to a front seat.

My two kids are in the second row seats of our Odyssey, both on the outboard positions.

Unless you need to do otherwise, I'd use 2nd row center...

It's just that much farther from from any potential points of impact, and you did say you wanted the saf<strong>est</strong> position.
