Summary: I absolutley love my axiss! Although not suitable for all cars, its has been perfect in the 3 ive had in the time ive had the car seat! The swivel action is great in car parks, helps with less dinks in other car doors! Great selection of covers, and you can easliy get replacements through maxi cosi.
Pros: Feel confident with the brand that my chils is as safe as he can be.
Cons: Takes a while to get all the covers on and off for washing.
Brilliant seat, easy for us and comfy for little one!

Summary: An extremely comfy seat for little one, she looks like she's sat in an arm chair. Easy to use and brilliant features. If you shop around you can get a really good deal, as we bought a colour that was being discontinued we paid less than £100.
Pros: Easy enough to fit, sturdy seat (slightly weighty but makes it feel safer to me), brilliant recline settings for sleep and of course the awesome twist seat, great for my husband's bad back. The straps are very padded and don't get lost easily like on the first size seat we had. Also the seat heig...
Cons: You have to put little one in perfectly central which can be difficult when seat twisted in recline position otherwise the straps tighten a bit unevenly, but nothing that can't be easily sorted! Other than that (which was my fault) there aren't really any cons.
Summary: we looked at lots of car seats and decided that spending a little more meant saving alot of back pain and fidgeting around when it's pouring with rain, also, due to the swivel positioning I am not awkwardly trying to put my daughter into the car bumping her head on the way in!
Pros: it swivels 90 degrees, well padded, made by a well known and trusted brand, the shoulder straps again are well padded and have rubber grips on the underside to prevent slipping...and therefore reduces the risk of wiggly escape tricks, there is a green pop up button at the top which indicates that...
Cons: on our particular model one strap seems to be a little looser than the other - emailed maxi cosi and no response (yet). not sure if anyone else has experienced this? others have mentioned that this really is a one car seat once fitted - it's large and heavy and not easily transferable between car...
Great seat once in the car, easy to fasten children in - highly recommended

Summary: Having got a Britax Explora in one car and this in the other I prefer to drive in the car with the maxi-cosi Axsiss. My son is very comforatble in it and has never complained about having to sit in it.
Pros: Love it. The harness has nice padding and is easy to click together and fasten. The fact there are bits on either side of the seat to hold the harness back so its easy to put the child in without having to scramble underneath and behind them to pull the straps out. The fact is turns to face you i...
Cons: Too heavy to change between cars and fiddly to install, but once its in its in! Quite pricey for a car seat, so shop around as can vary from £220 - £180.
Summary: Great seat if you have a bad back as you are not twisting yourself into the car to fasten the child in. Also good for wriggly children who don't like being fastened in. Cost is high but is a good seat and worth the money in my opinion. Well padded, comfy, deep seat
Pros: Obviously the fact that the seat swivels is going to be its main sellling point and it does this easily, just flick the lever on the side of the seat and turn the seat towards you, once the child is in turn it back and you hear a click and there is also an indicator on the top of the seat that ch...
Cons: Very heavy, but ok if you intend to fit it in one car and leave it there. Can be complicated to fit and get the seat belt through all the guides, but again ok if you are leaving it in one car. Not the cheapest of seats.
Excerpt: I could not live without this seat! After having an op on my back I couldn't twist to get my LO in and out of seat. That was until this fab seat came on sale.The seat sits upright & reclines for sleepy times my LO is snug secure & looks extremely comfy sitting in it.
Summary: I am pretty happy with this car seat. I have both pros and cons below - Pro - The ability to move the seat to face you while putting the baby in is saving my back! I know it is safe!! It looks nice & was pretty easy to install into our Ford Fiesta Con - Its BIG!!
