The Touring has the Floor Rails (for the center console) but still does not have the anchor in the roof for the seatbelts.
Only the EX and EX-L offered the Plus-One seat, and I believe it was standard, not an add-on.
They eventually started offering the seat on the Touring, but I'm not sure what year that was, maybe 08 or 09?
I've read some posts here about someone that retro-fitted the seat onto an LX or Touring (don't remember which) and it did not sound like an easy job to me.
For us, the seat was a requirement so I only focused on EX and EX-L when looking for a van.
Well said. My opinion is you should consult your dealer and see if its possible to add one to your vehicle as originally designed. If not, I don't think you should risk injury to a child who likely is not savvy enough to make their own call on safety.homer's van said:You're going to "rig up" an essential safety device like a lap or shoulder belt? Wouldn't an upside down milk crate be easier and just as safe? I guess you could always get the other families in your carpool to sign a disclosure acknowledgment and liability waiver, unless you plan to sacrifice your own offspring to the 8th seat.
