My only complaint about the design of the second row capts chairs (and I would think the bench would have the same issues, but not sure) is that the headrests are fixed. They can't be removed or adjusted and larger front-facing child seats tend to butt up against the headrest leaving a gap between the childseat and a back rest of the 2nd row seat. Reclining the seat fully helps some, but not completely. Still, it doesn't seem "unsafe", the LATCH system is still holding the chair very securely. It's just not an optimal design.
