Excerpt: I would probably give this carseat 5 stars if it wasn't for the stupid carseat handle. The buttons that lock and release it it are just awful! They are nearly impossible to work and everytime I get super frustrated! Other then that, the carseat is very nice.
Excerpt: I bought this carrier as part of a travel system with the sit and stand double stroller. I like the colors and design. The base was easy to install, and different checking if it was secure in the seat.
Excerpt: The baby trend flex loc car seat is great! It is NOT heavy and bulky like most Graco car seats. It has a squared handle which makes it much easier to carry around. People complain about the lock being in the front so its against your back seat.
The baby trend flex lock is good for the price but not wonderful

Excerpt: I bought this carseat for my newborn daughter because of its excellent reviews and reasonable price. I do think it was a safe carseat, which is the most important thing when looking for carseats. The other features are extra and come second in my list of priorities as far as carseats go.
Excerpt: I bought this travel system because of the safety features and the colors. I was really picky when I was pregnant about the colors of the Travel system, all of them out in the stores were a blue or green. I wanted something different, and I was so in love with the brown and orange colors.
Excerpt: Although the car seat seems very safe, it is horrible trying to get my 3 month old out of. The handle takes a special touch in order to press both buttons just so, otherwise you're stuck trying to get the baby out without hitting her head on the handle.
Excerpt: This car seat is the absoulute hardest thing to use. In order to put your child in the seat you have to push the big handle back like you do for every car seat, so you would think it wouldn't be that hard but on the Baby Trend Flex lock you have to have pretty strong hands to squezze the handle to...
Some nice features, but impossible to install correctly

Excerpt: I was very excited to get this car seat because it had recieved excellent reviews from Consumer Reports in their crash test ratings. However, the car seat was extremely difficult to install using LATCH. Neither my husband or I get the base to fit tightly in the seat.
