Comfortable but of Questionable Safety

Summary: I purchased this car seat without having done a lot of research. I have since found out that the "Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute" listed this seat as one of 13 that they don't recommend as it doesn't "put children in the best position to be protected in a crash." Had I better researched this seat beforehand, I would not have purchased it.
Summary: This car seat is easy to take in and out of the car. Needs to have a piece of padding around the latch that comes between the legs. We have pinched little legs once or twice because this is lacking.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) We had read some good reviews and some unfavorable reviews about this item, but we really like it. It took a little bit to install it, but now it is very easy to use. It is a great deal for the money and was rated highly by consumer reports.
Summary: We were in a car accident and the insurance company made us get rid of the seat that was in our car during the accident. Our daughter was at that in between stage where she is not quite ready for a booster but too big for alot child/toddler seats so this was our compromise. Sofar it has been great. It is black/gray and looks good in our car as well as being eaay to buckle and install.
Summary: I bought this booster for my son when he grew out of the rear facing travel system. I looked a literally 50 car seats, read reviews, even consulted consumer report (which gave it the highest safety rating). We have been using it now for almost a year and it is great! The covers on the shoulder straps easily slip off and with the seat cover are very washable (colors are still true - no fading; stains are easy to remove with a little shout or whatever you use).
Summary: I absolutly love this car seat. It is big and comfy and my little girl loves sittin in it it seems. the seat cover is WONDERFUL for spills which was the only hesitation i has about buyin one online- i could not see the fabric and i wanted one that was easy to clean. But it turned out perfectly. The reclining feature is by far one of my favorites. I can just reach rite back while driving and recline her if she falls asleep.
Summary: Seat is easy to install, and my 2.5 year old loves it. He switched over to it easily. The buckles do slip down, but it's not too terribly difficult to get them back up ... a bit annoying but that's alright. Another annoying thing is the cup holder ... great feature, but it's only on the left side of the car seat. If you put the car seat on the left side of the car, then the cup holder is pushed up against the door frame and totally unusable.
