Oh, good catch! I should have realized that with "Walnut" and "Wood" listed beside it.

I never thought about the anchors that way. The way I saw it is that there are four anchors (two for left and two for right), but you can use the middle two to put a car seat in the center. I never tried it, but figured it would work fine. For the time being I've put the seat behind the passenger.
I used to use the middle when I had the rear facing car seat as I felt it was the safest position and I could also more easily reach my child. Now that we're in the front facing, I have it attached on the rear passenger side--so I can more easily see my kid but he can get in an out of the seat more easily than when in the middle. It also makes for more room for passengers that way.

Good to know. We had the infant and toddler seats both rear facing in my wife's EX35. The reason for that was purely safety. We had to put it on the passenger side though as the EX35 has minimal rear room. With those seats rear facing, passenger seat was unusable, so my wife would have to sit behind me.

We're front facing now and behind the passenger, and I've been contemplating moving him into the centre. I think with the GS there will still be enough room for two people at the window, it'll be safer for my son, and a potential fourth passenger won't have to worry about the transmission tunnel.

I'll give it a shot later this week and see how it goes. The only problem is, as you pointed out, getting him in and out of the car. Honestly, I feel safety trumps everything though. I didn't change our car seat from being rear facing until he was 20 months old. And when there are both me and my wife in the car, I may just position it as rear facing and then get one of us to sit in the back and tend to him if he gets fussy.

It's great how priorities change as you get older .

Yeah - the heated steering wheel was a nice surprise (the brochure said it didn't have it). I actually turned it on to make sure it worked today . The salesperson was surprised that it had it too.

Any other surprises?

I was disappointed that we don't get Enform - not sure why I had thought we did.

Oh, and check my post about the side mirrors when you put the car in reverse. Is yours working as expected (tilting down)?
Yea i thought we had enform also, i dont know of you know about the rear sun shade but it sure surprised me. open the armrest saw a button and pressed it and it just came up. Im going to have to check tommorow when i drive to see if they both tilt when im in reverse.

Got PSI & GSTony: In Canada we get no Enform for some reason. The salesperson told me it was a "coverage" issue. That being said - you can address that. By adding coverage . If the cost of supporting/maintaing something like enform is similar to cell service, I can understand - but I thought it was satellite based.

Regardless, high density populations such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, and other major cities should be included - unless I'm missing something.

This link here implies that some aspects of Enform work in Canada if you're a US driver and visiting, but it's limited to Safety Connect.

It's a shame.. and we still lose the sunglass holder!

GSTony: Yeah, power rear sunshade is standard. I knew it was, but when my salesperson was showing me the car on delivery, it surprised him . It's an nice thing for sure!

Sorry - it's a mehran888 custom order. Let me know and I can make a few calls for you...

(kidding - looks like it's a Canada combo, not available in the US)
