Whats a good 'car' that will fit 3 car seats?


I am expectting number 3 (unexpectedly) and I have a 5 year old in a booster and a 15 month in a car seat, and there is no room for another seat in our car.

Any suggestions? Nothing expensive, nothing fancy.... something practical.

  • We easily fit 3 in the middle row in our Expedition. We have a 4 and a 2 year old and often have my cousins daughter who is 4 ride with us. They are  all three in forward facing 5-point harness car seats.

  • I have a 2005 ford taurus with my 4 year old carseat, my 7 year old and my 15 year old, we fit in great, but you may feel more comfortable with a minivan.

  • I have a Nissan Titan and I have a booster for a boy I babysit, a graco nautilus for my 5 year old, and a rear facing evenflo triumph advance for my 20mth old. They all fit fine. I used to have a ford explorer and it was really great as well with all those carseats.
