    My 05 wagon has the special attachment points in the rear seat for a child seat. Is that good enough?

    I have a car seat with a 2yr old boy in the middle (more room for his legs) and usually have a baby cradle in the passenger side (more room for my legs - driver)

    I went through this with my wife.. she is right but you can fit it in.... just the seat needs to be forward and upright to allow a baby capsule... I wouldnt want to go on a cross country trip longer then maybe 3-4 hours sitting on the passenger side but I am 6ft1in and wife is 5ft3in.. so she fits ok I dont...


    Hope that helps a little...

    ps if you have an SUV then get the Subaru cause you can always take the SUV when needed... ha ha haa

    Go here http://www.safercar.gov/ and search. Pay particular attention to the rollover rating of any SUV. Personally, I'd rather drive a smaller vehicle and always stay on the wheels.

    We have a WRX wagon and an STi with baby seats in the back of both. When we had to have the seat reversed, one was a little cramped only because the tensioner was pressed up against the rear seat back, so tightening his belt was difficult. In the wagon, with the reversed baby seat, I was able to ride in the passenger seat in front of him fairly comfortably (6'2"). Now that he's able to face forward, there is plenty of room for him.

    I had a pic I was going to post, but it's not on this computer.

    That's a great question. It has nothing to do with a BOV. There are three separate LATCH points in the backseat, so it's baby seat ready.

    Since you asked such a pertenent question, I think dsel was trying to ward you away from ever asking the hands down most rediculous question ever, which is anything to do with BOVs. I think the consensus is that you'd be better off sitting on a mike with a PA system broadcasting your own whoosh than ever installing a BOV.

    there's plenty of room for a car seat in the back and have someone sit in the pass seat.
    I have a 4 year old daughter. plenty of leg room for her.

    +1 It is actually quite refreshing to have a thread about someone who will be using the car to transport people and not just race Honda Civics.
