Re: Seating for 5 kids in Nissan Quest

One more thought, I think someone on c-s.org had good luck with a tight three across with a graco size4me, it has a really narrow base and sits higher than the radian so it's easier to buckle a booster next to it. You could pass th radian down to the newbie and get a size4me for the three year old, it might be easier for the 9 year olds to buckle.

Yup. Going with this option. Just need to get the radian in the 3rd row with a seatbelt install. Buckles are ahead of the bight though? Searching for tips before I squash my nearly 38 wk belly into the 3rd row with a 25 lb carseat.......

Re: Seating for 5 kids in Nissan Quest

No go. This seat cannot go into my car with a seatbelt. I don't think any FF seat will work with the horrible seatbelt design.

I was able to use a nautilus in the rear bench of my old quest. It's work, but its doable.

Op, we can help with forward of the bight installs. My radian goes in like butter with a forward of the bight belt now that I know what I'm doing.
