That's a fair point. And would extend to side impact as well.

I also was rear-ended (Aug 29 2013) in my 2001 V70 - thankfully I was the only occupant. Kids in the third row would have been killed. I was hit by a raised up jeep with a winch on front - common in the Northwest. and a menace to passenger cars. Because of the great anti-whiplash design of the seats, I was fine - no pain or injury (surprisingly). But I want to get the word out that the third row is not safe when you live around trucks and SUVs.
