Re: New car fit- Fusion or Accord

I have a 2 door civic and put my newborn's seat behind mine (driver side) and duuuuuuuude, I was in the windshield!!! I have to switch sides before we go anywhere else. But, I digress. I would choose the Accord. I am a total Honda lover. Our civic is 11 years old has 270,000 miles and still going strong! I am a Ford fan also (our other vehicle is an F-150 I LOVE. But, if I had to choose between the two makers, it would be Honda all the way.

ETA: Sorry I don't have Feedback for seat positioning. I reread you initial post.

no advice, I'm just amazed that you can make this work! I thought I was squeezed for room in my Fit with one RFing seat...

You should see it!! I laugh watching us go anywhere!! You should see people's looks as we are walking towards the car with a carrying infant car seat & a toddler. And just as they think we are going to the car next to it, I hit the unlock & the lights flash! Ha!!

I'm a TOTAL Honda lover! This is my 4th one & my 3rd civic. BUT, due to financial strains, we had to get outside financing & are more limited with where we can buy & our amount. My hubby also works at a dealership, so we are able to get a better deal- used or new. They do have a civic that they just took in, just waiting to hear back for some numbers.

I went & drove a Kia Soul today too... I wish it had a bigger 'trunk' area!!

Oh & the infant seat is behind the driver... And the RFing toddler is behind the passenger- it's still a joke!!

DH drives an 04 Accord. We have in there RF Radian, FF Radian, Maestro, and have done RF FF RF Radians, and RF Radian, FF Radian, RF Classic Marathon.

Oh, and RF Marathon, FF Radian, Onboard 35.

I've also had RF TrueFit Premier in there, but not 3 across.
