Three in Pontiac Grand Am


New member
I searched the forum, but I couldn't find anything about 3 across in a Grand Am.

My DH has a 2003 Grand Am and currently we have an Evenflo Maestro for my 4 yr. old DS and a Britax Roundabout for my 2 yr. old DD (FF as of today, she outgrew it RF).

I need to somehow squeeze and infant seat in the car as well (but I have some time, I'm not due until Aug.). We have a Graco Step 1 SafeSeat that we used for DD, but I know it's a bigger seat and I'm willing to get something smaller. I'm willing to replace any of the seats (DD will definitely need a new one soon as she grows out of the Roundabout).

I bought a Radian XTSL and tried installing it, but I couldn't get a good install RF. The Maestro and Radian are both so wide at the top, I don't see how I can have them side by side. I don't want the infant seat in the middle if I can help it because I think it will be difficult for my DH to put it in the car, reaching across another seat.

Do you have any suggestions of three seats that will fit in this car?

I did get at least one three-across to work. I believe it was 2 FFing, one infant seat. Let me search.

The Radian installs quite nicely, once you twist down the female buckle stalk.

Thank you so much, I don't know why I didn't find that thread when I searched.
I'm going to go back out right now and try to re-install the Radian RF for my DD, I've been sitting here just feeling sick about her FF!
And I guess I better look for a deal on another Radian for DS.
