Hi I have a 94 850 wagon, and am wondering about a V70. If you have kids and use the car seats, is a V70 set up with 2 sets of LATCH attachments, or 3? We have 3 car seats in the back of our 850, but it doesnt have LATCH (too old).<p>Our Passat Wagon 2003 has only 2 sets of LATCH, but the Volvo is wider.<p>Thanks!

Two sets of metal LATCH anchors in the rear seats (two outboard positions).<br>Three of the top strap anchors on the back of the rear seats (one for each position).

OK thanks all. I have not found a wagon with 3 sets of LATCH (aka isofix in europe) in the back seat. I had considered a different car, but will prob just stick with the 850.

Using the seat belt is more secure than using LATCH. LATCH has a weight limit but the seat belts do not.<p>If you put the child seat in the middle be sure to NOT USE one LATCH point for either side. This is NO NO, and not how the LATCH system was designed. Use the seat belt by pulling it completely out (to engage the locking mechanism) and then pull the hell out it to cinch down the seat.
