My mother in law purchased this seat back in June 2014. I had heard mixed reviews on it. It was easy to use and easy to install. I just wish the height and weight were higher. My now 3 year old daughter was too tall for it by 2.5 years. I would have given it a five star but the height, weight, and harness straps dropped a star. The harness was forever getting twisted and untwisting it was a trick.
This seat is good for a lightweight travel seat or spare seat. Not not for everyday. Theres no padding and the cover is constantly fall off on the top of the seat.
Works great as a rear- and front-facing car seat. For a newborn, you might want to add a small head cushion, but this one goes much further for larger kids without all of the extra padding. Amazing value, I don't know how they can sell this quality car seat at this price point. Enjoy the ride!
This buckle to extremely hard to undo.
I actually own 3 of these. I have two at home for my kids and i bought one when i visited family in Ny with my first child. I Love how roomy it is. The cup holders are a plus. Both my kids love it and when it's baby #3s turn, i bet she will love it too!
