  • I loved this seat at first but after a year of use, the magnetic chest clip is breaking open while my daughter is in the seat. Terrifying to think what might happen in an accident Sep 24, 2020

  • We love our Pria 85 for our 3 yr old! Very soft and easy to clean. Sep 24, 2020

  • I love maxi cosi. Got this when my daughter turned one. The most comfortable seat out there. Very good quality car seat. Aug 14, 2020

  • I love how comfortable this seat is for my child! We have had this seat for about 3 years, and consider this our 'good' carseat. My oldest says its more comfortable than her two other seats. Apr 06, 2020

  • Really happy with this purchase, but the slope is funny and when she falls asleep her head keeps falling forward. Feb 06, 2020

  • comfortable for my kid, easy to wash. Jan 02, 2020

    Best car seat we have bought. It is suoer comfortable and neither of our boys complain on long drives. When rear facing it allows for a better head positioning than other car seats. Dec 20, 2019

  • This is the most comfortable car seat of the 3 brands we own! I love that it is washable! I do not like that it doesn't have a steel frame & the straps are so hard to tighten! They have GREAT service! Dec 17, 2019

  • Couldn’t be happier with this seat! We’ve used this seat for about 18 months now, & I have NO complaints. Easy install, comfy for my rider, sleek design, & so sturdy & safe. The best. Dec 17, 2019

  • The straps are so difficult to adjust and its a pain to instal. I am not a fan of this carseat at all. Dec 09, 2019

  • This is the only seat my 3 month old will ride in. Oct 04, 2019

  • We have two of these, we love them so much! After much research we were confident in their safety features and their ability to meet our needs long term. We’ve been happy ever since! Sep 30, 2019

    I'm totally in love with this carseat. It's super comfy and easy to clean. My toddler has used it since she was 5 months old and it has grown with her. She also gets good head support for naps. Sep 26, 2019

  • Rear facing has a nice tilt. Feels sturdy but roomy for baby to move around. Love that it will last a long time and the cover is easily removed for washing. Fits my Nissan Versa Hatchback w/o issue. Sep 10, 2019

    This is the ferrari of car seats! Love the luxurious feel and look of the fabric. Super soft, plush and cozy for our little one. Grows with the baby for years to come! Easy to install too! Aug 27, 2019

  • Another great Maxi Cosi seat. Super comfortable, and my older kid didn’t max out the harness height until after 5yrs. He wouldn’t never made it to 85lbs, though. Aug 26, 2019

  • We were given this Maxi Cosi Pria 3-in-1 convertible car seat to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel and it’s our new favorite car seat! Aug 24, 2019

  • I've had this carseat for about a year now and I'm so glad we purchased it! My daughter is so cozy in it. I love that the seat is washable, which came in handy after she threw up in it! It's sturdy! Aug 22, 2019

    this is a great car seat. Our LO sits very comfortably in it. Very easy to remove cover to wash. Love the harness features. Cons: harness can be finicky, only 1 cup holder. Aug 21, 2019

  • I have this in a maroon red. It’s okay. Very soft and cushiony. Hard to maneuver. Hard to get child in and out. Hard to get it tight and installed correctly Aug 04, 2019

  • We borrowed this when we were out of town and my daughter who hates car seat like this. It must’ve been comfortable and to her liking. The buckles were easy to use and car seat easy to install. Jul 31, 2019

  • Easy to get my LO in and out of. Installing into the car was a breeze. As is adjusting the height of the seat. Straps automatically adjust when you adjust headrest height. Jul 10, 2019

  • Easy installation. Adjusts well to child. Long lasting. Jun 28, 2019

  • This seat is awkward to use rear facing for a toddler. Over time, the straps became difficult to adjust. It eventually got so bad that I had to replace the seat. I went with a different brand. May 21, 2019

  • Like this seat but find it hard to tighten the straps after baby is in the seat! Like how it has seat belt holders, how easy it is to clean and how comfy this chair looks May 08, 2019

  • We just switched our little to this seat at 5 months. She loves being able to see out of window (was getting fussy in infant seat). Reclines nicely, sturdy, and easy to remove seating to clean! Apr 21, 2019

  • I wish I had done more research. I don't love how the chest piece clips together, tightening the straps is a challenge. Apr 18, 2019

  • Hate this. Seat is easy enough to install however I never feel that it is in "right". The straps ALWAYS get twisted and I cannot get my son tight enough. My husband has to tighten him every time. Apr 17, 2019

  • I have two of these and while they seem to be quite safe and fairly easy to install, tightening the straps is very difficult. Facing backwards or forwards - pulling the tightening belt is HARD. Apr 15, 2019

  • Baby is so secure and comfortable she relaxes when she sees she is getting in and instantly falls asleep on long rides. Apr 12, 2019

  • Comfortable and easy to use! Bought another for my other son! We love Maxi cosi!! Apr 09, 2019

  • This seat is perfect for our family. It looks comfortable. I also feel like my son is safe in it which was my top priority. The straps can get stuck and hard to pull sometimes but otherwise I love it Apr 05, 2019

  • We love this car seat! Easy to install, sturdy and grows with baby. Only con is it gets so hot so quickly. Baby sweats in it so breathability is low. Mar 25, 2019

  • I spent entirely too much time researching car seats. I narrowed it down to this, the Nuna rava or the Britax boulevard. I ultimately chose this one and happy with the decision! Mar 13, 2019

  • In love!! My baby absolutley hated car rides. When I got this, she was so comfortable, she just fell asleep. I wish I got this sooner. It's worth the money to keep your sanity intact during car rides. Mar 07, 2019

  • Pros: The night black has a bold look to it. The size is huge and spacious for the toddler to sit in. Cons: There are only two levels of reclining. It looks bulky. Feb 25, 2019

    Much more cushion compared to other car seats. My children end up taking a few naps in the car throughout the week, and I'm glad that they are comfortable. Feb 20, 2019

  • This car seat is very comfortable for my baby, however it is not easy to install. Not recommended for smaller vehicles as it takes up a lot of space for the passengers in front. Jan 12, 2019

  • I absolutely loved this car seat! I bought it as a next stage after the baby carrier I had (evenflo) & it has exceeded my expectations! It’s very safe + comfy. My baby LOVES it & looks so modern Jan 08, 2019
