ShaggyDaddy -- could you share the brand of car seats you have back there and the ages of your children? Because you must have the thin car seats people keep mentioning.
we sold our civic a few years ago, but it was when i did childcare. we had an alpha omega (without the bas), a cosco touriva (i think), and either a narrow booster or a graco snugride (we fit both at different times). the civic was a 2003 (and the seats were about that same age). we had to play with the set-up alot, cause with some seats next to eachother the doors wouldn't even shut, but with some it was so simple to install. i think the general formula was one rear facing between two foward facing, or one foward facing between two rear facing. of course, it's possible that the 2003 civic had more room across than yours.
we also fit the ao, the snugride, and the touriva in my mil's elantra.
