  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Britax is one of my favorite companies; affordable and excellent quality. This car seat is incredible. Has lots of higher-end features, cleans up well and is easy to install! Dec 17, 2018

  • This is a great car seat for grandparents. The seat is very solid but lacks a lot of features so it is easy to figure out. I wish it had a no-rethread harness. It has served the grandparents well. Jul 11, 2018

  • We had these in my parents vehicle, but once I had to add a third seat we realized they were too bulky to fit and had to swap them out. Otherwise you can't do wrong here. My kids loved them Jun 23, 2018

  • We love our britax boulevard, but price was too steep when we needed a 2nd seat. This is a definitely an economy model. Cheap fabric & a little more difficult to adjust. Basic, but still a good buy Jun 06, 2018

  • Top notch safety, convenient features, and easy to use at a price I can swallow. Love the easy installation latches, rubber non-slip bottom, Velcro to hold buckles back, and sits up high. Recommend! Apr 07, 2018

    Fits nicely front-to-back in our small car, but the straps frequently get twisted in the buckle slots. We ended up putting this in our second car as a backup because the straps get twisted so easily. Feb 10, 2018

    Comfort for child, easy to install and affordable. Oct 24, 2017

  • Bought an older version of this seat 3.5 years ago and my 4 yr old son still loves it. The latch connectors are a breeze and the seat is very comfy. Only caveat is that the cover isn't machine washable Apr 24, 2017

    I drive a Mazda3 so i needed something fairly small without giving up safety. This is perfect for our little car. easy to strap and unstrap, and love that the straps velcro to the sides to stay open. Aug 16, 2016

  • I love that it has the option to use the anchor strap even while rear-facing. It's also pretty doable to remove the cover to wash it. It's a little bit of a hassle to adjust the shoulder straps. Jul 22, 2015

    I love the steel frame around it (and so did my husband!) Great car seat and fit in our Ford Focus with plenty of room for the driver. Feb 04, 2015

  • Super easy to install and it reclines so that it's comfy for my son. Just like the Britax infant seat, I notice the straps get tangled easily. Not super helpful when you're in a hurry! Oct 31, 2014

  • have 2 of them Oct 01, 2014

    We chose this model because it's cheaper than other Britax seats but had great features. It is so easy to install and switch between cars. It is very safe and sturdy. Jul 29, 2014

  • It seems to be a bit hot but I'm guessing that's an issue with all carseats. We got green to try and avoid the issue, but the little guy still comes out all sweaty. Jul 28, 2014

  • Eh. It's fine, no frills, a basic boring car seat! I do like the velco to keep the straps out of the way when buckling and unbuckling. May 14, 2014

  • Have had this since my boy was a newborn. Very happy with it. May 13, 2014

  • It's not bad. Simple to install. Only thing is that it sits semi upright so when my 'lil one is sleeping he's upright. Belts have a velcro to hold in place to put your child in without sitting on them May 12, 2014

  • Never had any problems, a very sturdy carseat!! Apr 04, 2014

  • This seat fits well backwards facing in our mid size sedan. We used this after our daughter outgrew her bucket seat at 1 year. Mar 01, 2014

  • Love that she's in a Britax, wish I'd just spent the money for the Boulevard or Advocate or Marathon. Feb 04, 2014

  • Buckles are really hard to release (although I suppose that is intentional). Overall, though, it's a great car seat and my son seems comfortable in it. Jan 29, 2014

  • We have a Marathon too, and wish we'd spend the extra money to get another one as our backup. The straps need to be manually adjusted on this one - just not as nice! Dec 24, 2013

  • by far our favorite car seat! This one is easy to pull out of one vehicle and install in another one. It has an easy release latch system which truly is easy! It's also a convertible car seat and it works great forward or rear facing! Nov 29, 2013

  • easy to use and safe Nov 02, 2013

  • Doesnt have a ton of bells and whistles, but it is comfy and does it's job well. Oct 24, 2013
