Excerpt: My husband and I did a TON of research on car seats when our 8 month old was already out-growing her infant carrier! We needed a seat that would rear-face and forward-face and we didn't want to have to buy another seat for a while so we wanted a seat with a high weight limit.The Maxi-Cosi won out...
Excerpt: The Maxi Cosi car seat is a great convertible seat. When our daughter moved from facing backward to the front, she was in another brands seat. She cried all the time and could not get comfortable.
Excerpt: After using the Maxi Cosi infant seat we decided to use the same brand for our next car seat. One of the main reasons that we chose this seat was that it is designed to be compact. A lot of the larger car seats wouldn't fit in our backseat.
Excerpt: We love this Maxi Cosi carseat. My daughter was in this seat from about 9 months and is still in the seat at 2 and a half. THis car seat is by far the easiest convertable carseat to install that we have had.

Summary: I would recommend this seat for the budget but i would recommend the tobi instead if people have a slightly bigger budget as its worth the extra money.
Pros: Its a good looking car seat and is quiet sturdy. The padding around the seat and the straps make it seem quiet comfortable. Also the fabric that is used is good quality
Cons: Unlike the Maxi Cosy Tobi this one seems to sit awkward in my car. Also i have found it awkward undoing the straps as you need to push the button with one hand and pull the straps with the other (hard work with an impatiant toddler!) I also do not like the way its secured into the car, i think th...
Summary: We're quite disappointed in this car seat, mainly because of the difficulty of cleaning. Also, our daughter is beginning to kick the back of our seats (!!) and this seat makes her far forward enough to be able to do so with ease.
Pros: It's really comfy, great recline, and looks good. Fairly easy to fit.
Cons: If your child gets travel sick, it's a nightmare to get the covers off and on again. Really heavy to lift between cars.
Summary: Really great safety features such as plenty of padding (side impact protection and head protection) and padded shoulder straps which adjust to 3 positions. Fully reclining seat - with 5 different positions and its really easy to adjust - one hand mechanism.
Pros: Easy to install, great looking, light and great safety features!
Cons: It can only be used with a 3 point seatbealt so you can't really use it with a lap belt. Other than that - no other weaknesses!
