I bought this car seat about a year ago. I was recently in a terrible accident with my son. We were hit from the side by a tractor trailer. He was able to walk away from the accident with not even a seat belt bruises. After the crash we checked the car and seat didnt move one bit. The seat belt has always been easy to use and after this accident I know it does that job. I am buying the same one.
Bought this to replace the original rear facing car seat to use for a while and transition to a front facing seat. When installed in the rear facing position according to the instructions, the belt tightening knob is pressed so hard against the seat back that you cannot turn it. So now I am back to using my old car seat until my child is big enough to use it as a forward facing seat. Very disappointed in this design.
I’ve bought two of these seats so far and I’ve had nothing but amazing things to say! Yes it’s bulky but with that comes extra protection. My daughter is always comfortable. Her head is relaxed and not slouching even if she falls asleep. Easy to install. Easy to recline and tight and loosen. Highly recommend!
We were involved in a car accident in which we were hit in the rear and the passenger side. The chest clip stayed fastened but THE BUCKLES RELEASED UPON IMPACT. If we had flipped we would have been burying our baby. Never buying this car seat again!
Love how comfy it is without compromising safety. Baby is able to see up and out the window easier. It's pretty slim (are any of them "slim"?) It fits well enough to leave plenty of leg room in front... we have a 2010 Ford focus. Like the click knobs to tighten. Cup holders are kind of a joke... just strange, but on the up side, easy to clean.
We love this seat! We got it for our first daughter. It’s so great we got it for her sister too. The tightening knobs and shoulder straps are great for getting a just-right fit! It’s easy to clean, installation is easy. It’s great rear and forward facing. For being a more budget-friendly option, I don’t feel like we compromised on safety at all. I know my girls are safe when we strap them in every day
My great grandson is more comfortable in this model. It is easier to get him in and out of the car seat.
