  • 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 love all the special features of this carseat and it's so safe and comfortable for my daughter. They've thought of everything with this seat! Aug 18, 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 so comfortable for my one year old twins. It has three options to recline. My favorite thing is how easy it is to clean without taking the whole thing out. Only con is how bulky it is Sep 01, 2018

  • So comfortable for our daughter. Easy to clean. Neutral color options. We always feel like they are extremely safe in maxi Cosi! Jul 31, 2018

  • Love it. Soft, breathable material...did I mention washable. Jul 25, 2018

  • such a great convertible car seat! She loves and has never complained about being in the car. Jul 03, 2018

  • My son who is not a great sleeper has always slept happily in this seat. Apr 24, 2018

  • Wish we had skipped the infant style seat and started with this! Fits from birth through 45 lbs. Love the strap holders on the sides. A color to match every car interior too! Apr 06, 2018

  • My son is very comfortable in it. The material is perfect for him especially since he is always hot and we live in the desert. Easy to install and has a lot more leg room than our other car seat Mar 03, 2018

    We have the Pria 85 in Ribble knit and love it! comfortable and a great color! Used it on a plane, too! Feb 21, 2018

  • I don't "regret" I feel like it's a safe seat and I like the style of it - but it is complicated to install rear-facing. I do like that the cover is completely removable and machine washable. Feb 20, 2018
