Good car seat for my one year old

  • Excerpt: I have been using the Britax Marathon car seat for my since my daughter turned seven months. The car seat is easy to install when reading the instructions and I was able to do it in about five minutes. My baby is very comfortable in it in my mid-sized SUV. When we wanted to put the Britax in my husband's Prius it would not fit in the middle of the back seat without my daughter's legs being scrunched up so we put it on the seat by the window.

Great product; well worth the price.

  • Excerpt: This is a great carseat. It is narrow enough to fit into my small sedan. It allows for extended rear facing and has one of the higher limits for forward facing. The sides can be a little difficult to lift the baby over, especially with the tether that goes over the top. The no re-thread straps make adjusting so easy.

Best Carseats

  • Excerpt: I own two of these and I've had them for nearly 3 years. They are wonderful. My kids have traveled a lot in them. When my son was younger we drove 8 hours round trip every weekend to visit family and he always seemed comfortable. Since then, I bought another one for my daughter. We recently made a 2400 mile trip to visit family over the holidays and the kids rarely complained about the seats.

  • Excerpt: I have had quite a few car seats with 3 children. Now that I am more established it was possible for me to be able to buy a Britax seat and I wish I had done it sooner. I love the look of the seat. The cover was so cute but practical for a baby. It was also so easy to get the cover off to clean. The best part of having this Britax seat was that I could take the cover off without having to take the whole seat out.

The (Almost) Perfect Carseat!

  • Excerpt: We purchased the Britax Marathon 70 for our then-eighteen-month-old based on reviews we had read. He was just getting to the point he needed to be in a front-facing carseat, and we wanted to make sure we got a good, safe seat.

  • Excerpt: We had two of these and loved them. Love the anti rebound feature with the tether on this seat. Very comfortable, my kids love them. The fabric is very soft and durable. It is vey easy to clean and put back together. Once the cover is off it wipes cleam with a rag for the most part.

A great seat, but not long lasting for most children.

  • Excerpt: This seat is very easy to install. It's very comfortable but lacks leg room, not actually much of a problem but there are seats that offer more leg room. This isn't a good choice for extended rear facing tall children since the shell isn't very tall. The bottom cushion is nice and the seat isn't too heavy.

Expensive but worth every penny

  • Excerpt: When it comes to things in life, there are few things that concern me more than the safety of my children. You just cannot seem to take it for granted. So it is natural to want to protect my children as much as I can when they are in a vehicle. Britax carseats have provided the peace of mind I need when traveling with my children. These car seats definitely cost more than others, but there is no mistaking the security they provide.

Loved this car seat so much we bought a second one!

  • Excerpt: We originally bought this carseat in 2011 when our daughter was ready for it. We loved it so much that we bought a second one in 2012 for our son. The kids a very comfortable in it and it's super easy to buckle, unbuckle, and adjust. Over all we are very happy with these seats and would recommend them to others.

A carseat I can trust!

  • Excerpt: I am beyond happy with this carseat. The reason why we chose this seat was because of the rave reviews and the points in safety it got. We also got it on sale for a great price and we were very happy that we decided on this particular carseat. It is so easy to install! My daughters first carseat was extremely difficult to instal in the car. By the end I would be sweating and exhausted. This carseat is easy to install and does not wiggle around like some other seats do!
