Re: can i just tell you all how excited i am that...

Can I just say I LOVE Subarus? I wish we could afford one and I'm so glad you'll be able to make it work. It would be such a pity to have to get rid of it! We're going to need a new car for the newbie. I MIGHT be able to fit three in back if I put both the boys in boosters and got a bucket for the middle, but it won't work forever. We have a Ford Focus. We bought it the day we got engaged and it's the only car we've had in our marriage. Wish we'd been a little more forward thinking when we bought it though.

I am so in love with my Forester. We briefly considered moving up to a van this summer but decided it was cheaper to buy a Thule topper for camping than a whole new car.

You should be able to fit 3 across. I remember reading somewhere (maybe carseat.org ?) that they were able to get 3 across in a Focus. I used that to my advantage with DH in finding seats that fit in the Fusion. FWIW, our seat is 57" across, but with only 54" I could use; Z's booster wouldn't curve with the back of the seat and couldn't fit in the middle. And forget trying to fit a 5pt harness for him. I have his booster and 2 RFing convertibles that fit. Hopefully you'll find a good combo too!

Maybe I should measure our Subaru and see what will/could fit... won't DH just LOVE that.

We would have had plenty of room to work with in our forester if it wasn't for the darn contoured seats! There's a huge bump on either side by the door that takes up several inches on each side. If they would just change that it would be way better.

Yeah. The Subaru does contour a LOT more than the Ford. It makes the Ford look like it's flat! Even my mom said that! (She had a 1990 Legacy with the three of us).
