Great job! I'm glad you were able to make it work!I just successfully installed 3 across in a 2001 Subaru Legacy.
1. Passenger side on LATCH Graco snugride RF
2. Middle on seatbelt- three belt stalk twists-Radian FF
3. Drivers side - Britax Marathon-on LATCH- FF
This was not checked by a tech, but all three are rock solid, and surprisingly very little sideways tilt on outboard seats.
My daughter 4 yo, 30 pounds is in the Radian, son 2 year old is in the Britax, and baby to be, sometime very soon,will be in the graco. I was surprised at how easy the install was, even being 9 months pregnant.
Thanks for all the information on this site. It definitely helped me to make the decision to buy the Radian and try the install, instead of buying a new car!
Yes Debbie they were pretty easy to buckle. I needed to see if they would fit in my mom's car since she's taking care of my kids while I take my CPST course next month. Now I know she can get them to and from school safely.That's awesome! I wouldn't have guessed that would work. :thumbsup:
It even looks like the PWs are fairly easy to buckle.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Great to know! I have two MAs installed in our 2007 Civic, one RFing and one FFing. I never thought you would be able to fit anything in between them. Good to know once both seats are FFing. We do have a Radian to squeeze in there. I am assuming that they all had to be installed with seatbelt, rather than the outboard MAs being installed with LATCH...2007 Honda Civic 4 door

Yes, I put the seatbelt through the belt path, make the seatbelt VERY loose, move the carseat out of the way, buckle, push the carseat back into place, then put weight in the seat and tighten the seatbelt.After looking at many of these pictures, it seems that it must be possible to fit 3 forward facing seats in my 2002 CRV, but I just don't understand HOW you're doing it... As I posted pictures in another thread, the seat belt buckles in the center of the back seat are VERY close together. The base will cover one of them for sure.

Are you guys scooching the seats in front of the seat belt buckles to fit the seat in?
