Accessing 3rd row seating?

I've been thinking about getting an Ex, but I can't find an answer to one of my questions. How do you get into the third row seating? Does the second row slide or tumble or what?

I didn't think it would be that hard to find an answer, but I've been googling for quite some time now with no luck.

In the second row, the passenger seat has a lever that allows 2/3 of the second row to slide forward.
Easy Peasy

Do you mean the passenger side 1/3 slides forward?

Based on the pictures I've seen, the 2/3 part of the 2nd row seat is on the driver side. Is that correct? And, if so, is it the 2/3 portion, or the 1/3 portion that slides forward?

Thanks.

I'm trying to figure out where I would put our child car seats / boosters before I go much farther in my search for an Ex. I didn't think about it that much until today.

And, what's up with Ford not putting the LATCH system in the seats?! What a pain to have to use the shoulder belts. We bought all of our car seats specifically for ease of use with the LATCH system. Oh well. I guess I'm back to the old fashioned way like when I had my Mustang.

I have two kids. When family is in town, I put both seats side by side in the second row. When just the wife and I, I put one behind the driver, one behind the passenger.

We have a BMW with latch system, and our last Audi also had latch. I was a little disappointed that the Ex didn't have it.
But once I got used to using the belts and anchors it was no big deal.
I can take the seats out of the Bimmer and have them(properly installed) in the Ex. in less than 5 minutes.

Oh, and FYI, if you get one without a DVD system....

Installing an aftermarket headrest system is easy to do. They are great for the kids on long road trips during the holidays.

Right now we only have two kids, so like you said, not that big of a deal. But, we're getting ready to add a third kid into the mix. I'm trying to decide if I would just put all of the kids (2 car seats and one booster) in the second row for my normal daily configuration just to make it more convenient. Or, it might be better to put the one in the booster in the back.

If I put all three in the second row, I'm just wondering if that would be a disaster having them all in that close of proximity to each other. I can just about imagine how that would go...
