Can you bolt an extra seat in an SUV to put children in the cargo space of an SUV?

Julia Phelps, an injury prevention health educator and the Safe Kids Cape Fear coordinator at the New Hanover County Health Department, said modifying a car in this way is not something she would recommend.

“If a modification like that is done to the vehicle by the person that owns the vehicle, that is not a seating position that will have been crash tested or anything like that. That would be something that if they were really wanting to do, I would have them consult the vehicle manufacturer to see if that is something they allow or an option they have for their vehicles specifically. That would be the only way I would say that would be OK to do.”
