Re: Help! I may have a serious problem with my FJ!!
Is it as ideal as a Honda Oddyssey? Of course not. Is it doable? Sure.
I deal with 2 kids + car seats in the FJ. FJC is the kids daily, and sees 20K miles a year. We actually replaced a van. Got tired of the van. The ONLY and biggest problem with FJ + kids, that I have personally faced, is the door situation. If you are in a tight spot and both front and rear doors are open, you get "trapped" inside with the car seat. To alleviate that, I just park further away from people. It helps with the DADBOD situation.
TO ME, the amazing positives of the FJ, outweighs the inconvenience of the door situation.
Good luck with the baby and your decisions.
