I am not trying to argue with you but if it was that much of a safety issue why would they put a LATCH anchor for the center position on the rear? I have to see but I believe I have LATCH anchors in the seat for the center as well.
I'm not trying to argue either but I'm concerned about the childs safety. Check the owners manual again.
The anchors (aka Top Tether) behind the seats are different than LATCH (aka ISOFIX) loops in the front of the seat. The Top Tether anchors can be used with LATCH or non-LATCH seats. http://www.car-safety.org/latch.html http://www.car-safety.org/latchfaq.html
5Q. Why aren't LATCH lower anchors provided for the rear center seat?
A. Two pairs of LATCH lower anchors are required in the back seat of vehicles manufactured after September 1, 2002, and those anchors are required to be a specified distance apart for safety protection in a crash. Because of this required spacing between the lower anchorages, most vehicles do not have a rear seat that is wide enough to accommodate anchorages in the center seating position and in an adjacent outboard position. While lower anchorages are typically installed at outboard seating positions, most vehicles that have a center rear seating position without lower anchors also provide a top tether for additional safety benefit.
6Q. Can I use the two inboard lower anchors (of the outboard LATCH seating positions) to install my child seat in the rear center seating position?
A. No, unless both the child restraint manufacturer's instructions and the vehicle owner's manual specifically state that this is acceptable. A child restraint can be installed using the rear-center seat belt and, if forward-facing, the top tether anchor.
