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: 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!!
Summary: This is a brilliant car seat, exactly what we needed! We have a small car and by spinning the seat 'round to face the door, it's very easy to get our 18 months old daughter in and out of the car. The only downside is the fixed shoulder pads, which are huge and seem out of proportion.
Summary: Decided to go for this seat due to the swivel action and my, does it make life easier! Nicely padded and tilts just enough to make sleeping more comfortable. Handy hooks to hold straps out of the way.
Summary: Love the seat but can't rate full marks. When tightening arm straps it doesn't pull the ones around the waist fully so you do have to feed them through to the arm straps otherwise it isn't secure. The shoulder pads are rather large for my 1 year old and tend to get in the way.
... does not recline as far as I would have liked. Babys head seems to lean forward when sleeping

Summary: Fab car seat but does not recline as far as I would have liked. Babys head seems to lean forward when sleeping. Could have done with another 1 or 2 furtherreclining movements. You also need to remember to lock the seat in place once your child is fastened in.
Summary: I like this car seat a lot as it really helps with my back which is quite sore since having my baby. I started using it when he was about 8 months as he is a big baby and was growing out of his group 0 seat. He loves it and at the moment i alwasys use the recline feature.
Summary: I bought this Axiss over the Toby for the rotation aspect and I couldn't be happier. it's so much easier to seat my son facing me rather than manipulating to fit him (and he is growing) from the front...
Summary: I purchased this for my 8 month old, but have yet to use it. The seat is very heavy,so not so great if you are planning to move it from one car to another frequently. It looks and feels safe and sturdy, and I am looking forward to not twisting my back!
