Do you mean the LATCH connecting belts? If so, the car may not be designed to use LATCH in the middle. It may only be set up for LATCH in the outboard and seatbelt installation in the middle. Most cars are like that. (growl, growl, whine, complain)
I have an 01 Jetta. We use a Marathon, rearfacing in the middle. We have to use the seatbelt install. Supposedly, it's more rigid that way anyway, but I can't vouch for that. We actually use the seatbelt AND the LATCH, but that's just something that works in Jettas.
(The Marathon is the same seat base as the Boulevard.)
With your very safe car, though I don't know it's detailed crash test history, I would, with what I know, opt for a Britax outboard.
If I'm understanding right and you're talking about using LATCH int he middle, I'd try that Boulevard again in the middle, with a seatbelt.
