Acceptable but has faults

Britax Disliker, kiddicare.com
4 July 2012
  • Summary: This car seat has been the recommendation from the manufacturer of our car. But it needs the tether and this makes adjusting the seat into its different positions very complicated, so we always have it on the same setting. It needs brutal force to change from upright into more comfortable sleeping position. I also badly hurt my thumb on the buckle, but that might have been operator error, although it shouldn't happen.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy to install, Safe, Sturdy
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Difficult to Set Up

I don't know

  • Summary: I could still use the sleeve of the chair as we are at the end of winter. The cover is for summer so as soon as I can use to be more accurate in my opinion

This car seat does not recline far enough

  • Excerpt: The isofix seems very sturdy and secure, the straps are well padded and fit nicely around our son. The bad thing is when our son falls asleep his head is bobbing up and down! Full recline is virtually 85 degrees, the recline on the other big make is much better,I should have exchanged it for that.

Mixed opinions on the Britax Duo Plus

  • Excerpt: Me and my partner bought this for our 23 Month Old to replace an older style Britax Renaissance car seat which doesn't have Isofix. Firstly it is MUCH lighter and with a smaller footprint than the Renaissance, which is a massive plus for us as we frequently have to change the seat between cars.

  • Summary: Does its job, ridiculous that it isn't supplied with the seat! Annoying if you need it, but can't be helped! definitely makes the seat feel more secure though.

Very expensive for what it is.

  • Summary: Very expensive for what it is, but supposedly necessary for my vehicle, and of course you don't want to take risks with safety. Couldn't find it discounted anywhere.

Unavoidable rip off.

  • Summary: This is a small bit of foam that must cost about 10p to make. It fits in the Duo car seat as specified and is compulsory for BMWs and a few other makes of car (otherwise Britax claim the seat is not safe). If thats the case they should supply it with the seat but of course as a parent you have to shell out for it. I got mine from Halfords which was a bit cheaper but still over priced.
