  • It's fairly easy to install and will last for many years it sounds like Jul 22, 2019

  • I had this for my 3 year old it was great the first months then it just started falling apart not worth the money at all Jun 28, 2019

    This is not my top choice car seat. Installing is easy. However, adjusting the straps properly every time we use is difficult compared to other car seats. I also find it harder to clean. May 18, 2019

    So difficult to install! I can’t even get it into my car safely May 12, 2019

  • This is one of the safest carseats out in retail. Looks nice, feels nice and comfortable. A little bulky Apr 27, 2019

    I got this car seat specifically because its rollover tested and is used in our Jeep Wrangler. It's a bit big rear facing but totally worth it to know my daughter is extra safe. Apr 16, 2019

  • I love this seat! My 2 yr old currently uses this & I’m trying hard to find another for my baby. It’s very easy to install in our car & I love knowing it’s very safe for my son. Comes in great colors! Mar 14, 2019

  • I purchased this for my son when he was about 10 months for a road trip from CA to TX. My husband and I both did not like how he fit in the seat. Also very bulky in Mazda CX-5 Feb 20, 2019

  • So we had gotten this car seat and then returned it because it was a too big and bulky for us in the car. However, it was easy to install and little one had no issues with it when we had it Jan 08, 2019

  • Great quality seat. It took a bit to set up for rear-facing. I love that there are cushions on the harness and below buckle Oct 23, 2018

  • It's seems comfy, fits both vehicles (forester+96' grand cherokee,) and has removable cupholders!!!! Cover is easy to remove for wash. Fabric wipes easy. It is bulky though, so not good for small cars Oct 15, 2018

  • Pros: padding, harness pads Cons: infinite slide harness straps mean you have to adjust the height everytime, difficult to get level and requires rolled towel, HUGE (My other seat is a graco 4 ever) Sep 16, 2018

  • Besides it being one of the safest I have researched before I purchased, it was easy to manuever when rear or front facing, and easily cleaned Sep 09, 2018

    Even though I have yet to use this, I am very glad that I bought it based on other reviews that I read. It has so many safety features and can fit Your child from infant up to toddler stage. Aug 22, 2018

  • Easy to install. Comfortable and very safe. Aug 17, 2018

  • I absolutely love this car seat. I have total peace of mind with it. It keeps my daughter cool in the vegas summer and is easy to use. It is a bit large for small vehicles, but possible. Jul 13, 2018

  • Its a little bulky, and the seat latch belt is short-hard to fit in a Jeep. But this carseat keeps my child from sweating in the Florida heat Jul 10, 2018

  • the headrest for the rollover part keeps breaking it made of styrofoa. I had to get a replacement twice the company did replace it for free. Jun 23, 2018

  • It is a very large seat compared to others. Its for starting at 5 lbs but the side to side head support is not there, even with the added support piece. Latch is hard to tighten down enough. Jun 10, 2018

  • Got this car seat for my for my 11 month old 4 days ago and she loves it so far! She has tons of room and it seems like she’s more comfortable in it than she was with her other one. She’s very tall! Jun 04, 2018

  • It’s bulky so I wouldn’t recommend it for small cars but I LOVE this car seat. My 5 year old is so comfortable in it for long road trips. We are getting ready to purchase 1 for our daughter too May 05, 2018

  • Huge and heavy, but super adjustible Apr 07, 2018

  • Q: How does the fabric feel on the car seat? Do you feel that it will help when its hot out?

    asked by heather s. - Jan 22, 2016

  • The fabric is soft! And living in South Florida I feel that it stays cool when it's hot out and keeps baby cool as well :)

    Brittany H. - Jan 22, 2016

  • Q: is the fabric padding easily removable and washable?

    asked by Heather C. - Jan 14, 2016

  • I haven't had a problem removing it in a jiffy. It washes up well, too.

    Patti P. - Oct 04, 2016

  • Q: Does it have Seatbelt lock offs?

    asked by Christina S. - Dec 30, 2015

  • For some reason I cannot get to the questions to answer it. But it does not come with a seatbelt lock. And according the the manual you don't need it unless your car is older than 1996. Sorry it took so long to respond! Crystal Sent from my iPhone
