your kinda out of luck, the only crxs with 3 seats were made in california, and they are rare. you best bet is to buy a new car than to try to install a 3rd seat it could take custom fabrication and in my oppinion never be truly safe for a child. that would also be more expensive than buying another car, find your local honda buffs and ask them what they know, or ask them if they have a car for trade or sale

Like Fusion said, the rear seats in CRX's are very rare. However, when I started to shop around for my first car, I almost bought a CRX, and I did some serious research on this very topic. They were only sold in Japan, not Cali, with the rear seat. If I had several hundred dollars to put toward the seat alone, I could have gotten the rear seat shipped in, and installed. (And had a VERY baller JDM mod.) Only two of my local speed shops knew where to get the seat. But, even if I had spent the money, the seat would've been only big enough to fit a baby carrier. (As it sounds like you need.) You really can't use it comfortably for anyone older than about 8-9.I did find one person on the net who had a CRX outfitted with a seat, got photos, and came to the conclusion that it was neither logistically nor logically doable for myself.If you want to do it, though, contact as many speed shops as you can find in your area, and one or two might not think you're crazy, and they'll try to help you out. It's a great idea, but you might want to consider getting a used Civic, or some other options.BTW, the rear seat issue was what moved me away from the CRX to a '95 Civic EX coupe, my current (and almost as fun) car. I absolutely loved the CRX, but needed the rear seat for my younger siblings.If you do it, show it off at some car shows- they'll love it.I just did about 5 more mins of research (OK- I was interested, too) and found that the reason the rear seat didn't come to the U.S. was because it couldn't pass the crash test. So you should take safety into consideration, too. Most people don't feel that it would be safe to put someone back there.
