Late looking at this. However, I have personal experience with this. My daughter gave birth in the spring. I took her somewhere one day and put the car seat in the back. The passenger seat had to go all the way forward and also needed to have the rake changed on the seat back to a more upright position. Note that this was the car seat alone and not with the base it came with, as that would have made the front seat unusable. Also note that I put the top down to put the seat in and take it out. I have no idea how you do it in a coupe. Also, this was a one time thing, not a daily event. It will get old very fast, not to mention all the other gear you will be carting around with you. From personal experience having raised three kids, I would swallow your pride and run to the nearest Chrysler/Dodge dealership and buy one of their vans before they pull the plug on them. You will not regret having the functionality and extra space. I would shy away from an SUV, unless youíre going big. The smaller ones donít have enough room. We have a Rogue now and I would say it would be too small for this duty.
