Child Seats in Renault Grand Scenic.

I am waiting for the next response from Renault UK after Renault France make a decision how they are going to resolve the problem at the end of January. I will update the forum then. We did try stage 3 seats in an S Max recently and they worked perfectly. From a personal perspective we will never buy another Renault and our sister-in-law who has a standard scenic is of the same opinion.
Well, I am grateful for the comments even if they are contradictory. Apsande apparently has no problems with the baby seat issue and Pauldv does. I think we need a little more input on this, is there anyone with a Grand Scenic who has had to fit baby / kiddy seats and would like to comment, please do? It will be of great value to all owners now, and prospective owners in choosing a vehicle that is suitable for their needs.
