Mom and dad just moved to the area, and they are hoping to carry grandkids (3 total currently) and a compliment of adults (up to 4) places when they visit. We're trying to find a vehicle that closes in on the following:
Can safely house 3 car seats for infants to toddlers - latch connectors, top tethers/etc, only lapbelts when absolutely necessary.
At least 1-2 seats rear facing.
Side curtain airbags for the 3rd row.
Can safely house 4 adults.
Is not a full sized SUV, Minivan, Van
We've looked at the Highlander, the X5, Pilot (currently largest vehicle on the list), Volvo XC90.
We're interested in folks experience if they've ever had to stick adults or car seats in the third row of seating and if they have specific recommendations beyond go bigger or take a second vehicle (we live 15 minutes away, we may do the 2 modest sized vehicle thing).
