We picked up the new Civic tonight. I have to get used to such a small car. I felt like my head was going to bump the roof! Dh fits in it though and that's what really matters.
Now what's the problem? It will NOT fit 3 carseats. Not a chance in hell. The slimmest seat on the market is the SK Radian at 17" wide and 2 of those don't leave enough room for even the slimmest of slim carseats/booster seats and definately no room for just a child to sit. (This is going strictly from measurements and not actually trying out the seats. SKR's website says I need 51in of room and I have 50" for 3 across)
Soooo now we have to decide what to do. Do we keep our van as a backup 3rd vehicle or if something happens to my truck, do we just rent a vehicle for the few days it takes to fix it? (I love my Pilot and do not want to get rid of it) Keeping it means an extra $67/mo, maybe less if we take off full coverage for insurance. Or we've discussed selling both vehicles and buying a newer van BUT again, we still don't have a back up vehicle that will fit all 5 of us. ARGH!
