I honestly haven't seen many cars, either regular or compact, that will accomodate three forward facing car seats. We used to have a Chev Blazer, and before I had my third child, I babysat another child, and three forward facing carseats in the back of that was next to impossible. Said I NEVER would, but when we were expecting our third child, we also bought the "epitome of suburbia" minivan. Turns out I love it ...who knew? April
