We are looking into purchasing a suburban and need 3 forward facing car seats to fit across the 3rd row. Any ideas?
You can not safely install 3 forward facing car seats in the 3rd row of the suburban (or yukon, denali, escalade, etc – all the same car) – as there is not enough space AND there is only one tether and EVERY forward facing car seats should be tethered (as the tether decreases how far the child’s head moves forward by 6-8 inches).
If we were to go with a minivan, would we be able to fit 3 forward facing car seats in the back row? Or do you know of any vehicle that this might work? If so, do you suggest any of the “go-to” car seats I saw on the site? We are looking for a vehicle that can last us a long time, have plenty of cargo space, can tow a trailer and fits 5 kids (4 forward facing, one of those will be in a booster soon and 1 rear facing). Thanks so much for your help.
You can fit 5 kids in a Honda Odyssey (2011 and newer)
