This is what I have done in the past. I used my points to buy the unit for my 2020 because my 2014 didn't fit. Otherwise, I would have just gone with the Husky again. IMO, the OEM version is FAR too pricey for what you get. If it wasn't free, I wouldn't have bought it.
I prefer the center for the child seat. It IS the safest, but what if you have multiple children? ONE of them will have to be on the outside, or you need to take multiple cars. My daughter is 7 and she sits in the passenger side rear seat on a booster. When she was in a reverse carseat, I put her in the middle seat of my Suburban, but my wife's Enclave has Captains Chairs in the second row, so she always sat on the passenger side. My point is, YES, the center is the safest and preferred, but all things must be considered when placing the seat.
I'd take it back to the dealer. Have you had any water come inside? Sounds like the drain to the A/C may be plugged and not letting the condensation out of the cab. Then it sits and starts to smell. I agree with O_J - Fix the cause, then treat the smell.
We only have one kid, but you're exactly right - She feels comfortable with the shorter front, overall length, etc. She doesn't want a mini-van, but the just make so much damned sense. The Enclave is essentially a pregnant car, as is a Minivan. It's no more truck than an Impala. Plus, the sliding doors on a van are MUCH easier to get kids and their crap in and out of and they ride great for our 2,000 mile round trips from Houston to Illinois and back....
We have an Enclave and while the MPG is NOT as good now 7 years later as it was, it's still ahead of Tahoe territory. And, one of the best things about the car for my wife was that it was nearly the size of the Tahoe, but was front wheel drive, drove like a car, and didn't intimidate her. We're not small people, so the reduction in size of these will push to the Tahoe/Suburban in the future. Or <gasp> a mini-van.
Just installed mine last weekend. Nice unit. However, this doesn't replace a "holster" or some other system for quick access. I will only use mine when my firearm needs to stay in the truck and I have to hand the vehicle to someone else (dealership, tire store, detailer, etc.).
