What are the safety concerns for a 3 year old in the back seat of the Element with no side posts and no way to put the car seat in the middle?

Safety The Honda Element comes standard with antilock disc brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, front side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. The 2011 Honda Element has not been rated using the government's new, more strenuous crash-testing procedures. Its 2010 ratings (which aren't comparable to 2011 tests) were a perfect five stars for frontal- and side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the Element a highest-possible score of "Good" in its frontal-offset and side-impact collision tests. (Plagiarized right from Edmonds.) I have no worries about my 3yr old!!! Previous models got 5stars.
