  • I purchased a volvo v70 wagon last year purposely for the third row seat. We both hate minivans and suv's just use to much gas.

    After finally being able to score a entire third row seat kit I figured it might be helpful to finally give back something helpful to this Thread: How To: Third Row Seat Install: v70/xc70 . Volvo V70 T SE AWD.

    She does not like that the 3rd row seat in the XC70 faces backwards and has no space serviced by Red Bank Volvo, NJ & Volvo Westport, CT.

    And given that my brother was injured by flying glass from several feet away, I cringe every time I think about our getting faces full of broken glass. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask below or PM me. I am surprised that the dealers have time for routine service However, my question is - how big have people been who get in the 3rd row seat?

    Ask The Best And Brightest: Three-Row Wagons? - The Truth About Cars

    Lovin' my sweetheart, pregnant with 1 EDD Feb. The 3rd row seat in a Volvo wagon or likely any station wagon is NOT safe even in a "minor" accident. Our Volvo V70 was rear-ended last weekend and I am terrified to think of what would have happened if my kids had been in the 3rd row. The SUV that hit us was high enough that it completely cleared our bumper and pushed a good 18" into the passenger compartment where the legs of a child would be. I call this a "minor" accident because no one was injured and no one's airbags even deployed.

    The Tiguan hardly even came in contact with the steel frame of the VW, it just nosed through the hatchback which is made of fiberglass and offers zero protection and into the backseat. We drive a Volvo There is no way the Hatchback on our car is fiberglass, when the struts are broken, that door is super heavy.

    Our kids ride in the rear facing seat when they hit the right weight, 50lbs. They're really excited about it initially, but its actually pretty lonely. My youngest is really a skinny minny, so it'll be a while for her, she weighs just over 40lbs and rides in a Radian. I will admit, that picture was alarming, but I know the original Volvo's are far safer than Ford's version.

    A 50 lb 8 year old is going to need a booster to position the belt correctly, and you cannot use a booster in a rear facing seat. As it was stated up thread, these are booster seats, they're built in, just like the fold down one in the middle of the back seat. Interesting, I have never had an opportunity to play with one of these before! Would it be too much to trouble you for a picture?

    Even a stock photo if you have access to one. I've done dozens of Volvos, very popular out here and I've never seen it. Whatever the old pre-Ford Volvo hatch is made of, it wasn't designed to take even a medium-sized SUV in the rear. The main and sometimes only thing between a rear-facing child and the grille of an SUV is glass. This is true in many cars, but might not obvious to those of us who purchase Volvos because they're "the safest car you can buy. Was seriously considering buying a Volvo but after this pic Paying more gas for an SUV is worth my childrens lives.

    There are many aerospace engineers not car buffs, car salesmen, or mechanics who advocate aft facing airline seats because test data overwhelmingly indicate that the body can sustain MUCH greater impact forces when being pushed into the seat versus out of it.

    Thats why many army air transports orient the seat backwards. The ONLY reason we don't ride that way in commercial vehicles is consumer preference and convenience If the alternative is back row seating in a minivan or SUV, something nobody seems to question, I wonder how my kids would be affected by that same crash in our Honda Oddysey vs. True, the Volvo puts their feet closer to an oncoming vehicle, but the minivan puts their heads, necks, spines and organs considerably closer.

    Get a tape measure and compare the two. The rear seating in our van "feels" more normal but is 1 closer to the impact zone and 2 seems much more likely to injure the occupants in a frontal offset or nearly any other kind of accident since the kids would be projected forward and their necks whipped forward at say 50MPH vs.

    Keep in mind that fragile babies and infants are mandated to ride rear facing for these same reasons. Just because the seat is in the "way-back" doesn't by definition make it any closer to harm than the 18" or so distance in the typical minivan or SUV. It looks scary because were not used to it but it seems to me no more dangerous than pretty much every single minivan or 3 row SUV you pass.
