1. Does the 8th seat hold a regular child car seat?
The 8th seat does have LATCH anchors, so yes it technically does hold a seat. Having said that, the 8th seat is pretty narrow, so if it were me, I'd double check by taking the child seat to the dealership and making sure it fits properly.
2. If I decide not to get the 8th seat when I purchase, can I go back at any time if I change my mind and buy the 8th seat separately to add in? This assumes it was an available option in the first place. I'm just not sure if they have to make any modifications to the vehicle when that option is selected.
The 8th seat changes the carpeting, floor hardware to attach the seat, and adds the seat belt harware to the ceiling. I was told that the 8th seat was not something that could be added later, and based on what I see in my vehicle, I believe that's accurate.
