I've had a couple of seven seaters now, a Seat Alhambra and a Mazda 5, and I won't put my kids in the rear seats for that very reason.
In truth the only reason we got the people carriers is my wife likes the high driving position, so we use them as "high rise" estates and don't need or bother with the 3rd row of seats.
Currently in Emily's dad's garage:
1999 Scenic RXE, now gone as has the Alhambra that replaced it !
