VW Jetta, RF and FF

Hi there!

I have a 4 year old who is 45" and has shoulder height of 16.5". She is about to outgrow her Britax convertable in shoulder height and we wanted to purchase a Britax Frontier 85.
We have a baby on the way and have the kiddo's old Graco Snugride infant seat (not expired!).
I wanted to but DD in the center in the Frontier and DS behind the passenger in the Graco. I have a VW Jetta and the closest Babies R Us is over 150 miles away, so it's not an option for me to go play with seats there.

Wal Mart and Target don't have the Britax in the stores. We tried the Nautalis for DD but the crotch strap was too close to her crotch, so that isn't going to work for us.

Does anyone else have a VW that has tried this combo? I know its a stretch, but I thought I would check before I bought one....

Thanks!

I have a Jetta! I didn't do your exact combo though as the Frontier and Snugride were switched. I had the Snugride in the center and the Frontier behind the driver. I tried the Snugride behind the passenger but it made it where I had to have the passenger seat all the way up and made it to where no one could be comfortable up front.

oh thank you! Just as long as I know they fit side by side!
We have a Dodge Ram we use when the family is all together so I don't have to worry about pesky passengers
