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.
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 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 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!
Summary: It is a great car seat and seems very comfortable. Only negative is the arms are quite high and wide and so as it is forward facing, you can not easily see the child when you are in the back of the car with them. We normally play in the car and interact so that has been quite different.
Summary: I Love this Seat almost as much as my son does! This seat not only looks nice but through Amazon was such a bargain compared to the high street! Delivered next day (by 7am) It has great safety reviews and the fact it rotates really takes the strain of twisting and bending to get them in and out of...
Excerpt: I bought this in the sale and am really pleased with the product. The first one that I received, I had to send back as the straps were not tightening enough. Customer service were excellent and prompt. The second one is much better.
Excerpt: We bought this car seat for the swivel base and were not disappointed. It is very easy to get the child into or out of the car seat without disturbing them too much (especially if they are asleep when you take them out).
