Excerpt: excellent idea but if only....<br />it had isofix not just seatbelt fixings.<br />the buckle wasn't fiddly, it doesn't fully unclip every time and you don't know until you're trying to close it again that it hasn't. it is also very stiff and not the easiest buckle to release, good for stopping the child but not you.<br /><br />overall and good seat and I have to say that the pros of having the swivel out weigh the cons above.
Pros: Comfortable, Safe, Sturdy
Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Adjust, Difficult to Set Up, Hard to Install, Heavy
Excerpt: Swivel feature is fantastic for getting a wriggly little monster in and out. It is set to swivel left or right before you install but you can quite easily get to the switch to change this when it is in situ so can be accessed from either side of the car when in the middle. <br />Recline function is really easy to use with one hand.<br />Harness holders to keep this out the way when getting child in or out are really useful.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Adjust, Easy to install, Safe, Sturdy, Stylish
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! I don't really think that there are many seats out there that have unique and specific selling points and they are all much of a muchness..
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 it has correctly clicked into the forward facing position, it has a several recline positions (although I only use one), there is a button underneath the seat which you switc...
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 cars. Yes, it's also a tad on the pricey side, but shop around, plus it should be lasting until baby is about 3.5 (ish)
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 is wonderful. No tantrums yet but can see it will make life easier. Having a recline function to for when sleeping is on the agenda is a bonus and easy to lift up.
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: 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. Not the easiest to fit into the car but once it's in it seems safe and comfy. It has two positions: fully upright and reclined.
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. My only complaint is with the straps, the undersides are thick rubber which when felt next to bare skin, can't be pleasant.
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. I'm glad I went for this seat tho as its just so much easier getting my son in and out with the swivel feature. They just need to make one suitable for my 4 year old now!
... 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. Turning the seat round to forward facing does not automatically lock it in place. Hoping the mechanisms for turning the seat last the distance.
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. its very comfortable for him to sleep in as his head rarely falls forward in it unlike other similar car seats.
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... and the stripes are way better than Toby (I have a Toby as spare) - they are comfortable and unless I tighten him sufficiently he can get out while with Toby he does it every time.
