Maybe I should of thought about a lighter color when I bought the cowmooflage print but couldn’t resist. Stains terribly, I’ve had this seat a few years and it looks so dirty even after washing it. Word to the wise, get something dark in color, very disappointing since the seat is in great shape other wise but is pushing me to buy another seat because I can’t stand to look at how dirty it has become.
Bought this for my son when he turned one. Less than a year later the recline handle came off. I can’t seem to get it back on and can’t adjust the seat. This car seat has just been a pain since I got it... the cover never stays in right and always gets in the way as well. If anyone can help me out, that would be great.

A must buy!!! We just purchased a second one for the other car. Our son is 4 months old and had reflux issues and would do nothing but scream when we put him in his other car seat. We purchased the first one when he was 2 months old and the crying stopped instantly, making driving enjoyable again. It is a very well built and safe car seat. Definitely worth the extra money over other brands.
Our 8-month old loves it! She's much more comfortable than she was in her Brixtax infant carseat. It doesn't take over the back seat, which was important for us since we have a 5-year old in a Britax Pioneer.
Love this seat!! Great for taller kiddos and for parents who want to extend rear-facing their child past the age of two. Definitely will take most kids from rear facing to forward facing, and last all the way until they are ready for a booster seat. The whole point of the click-tight feature is an easy installation to use WITH the seat belt. Definitely a great option for grandparents or people who don’t want to fiddle with a complicated install. However per one review on here, if you’re looking to use the LATCH system I suggest you choose a different car seat without the click-tight feature because with this seat that is partially what you are paying for. Seat belt installations are just as good as LATCH installations when done properly. Always read the manuals because on some seats they have weight limitations for how long you can use the LATCH system and you’d have to switch to seat belt install anyways.
Britax is going cheap. First thing, the concept of this car seat is good and sound, and the seat it self is solidly constructed. It is ultimately a safe seat. Here's the catch...They are getting cheap on the little things. This is disturbing as it is usually a slippery slope that companies take for the sake of profit over quality and value. 1) The latch parts are the older style latches that I can find on any cheap car seat from anywhere. They are MUCH more difficult to attach and release from my vehicles, and I do that a couple of times a week. They are not the bayonet style latches with the button on the end that are infinitely easier to use. I swapped the latches out with an older bayonet style latch and the seat is so much easier to install. Britax's excuse is that the seat is intended to be used with your car's seat belt. Here's why that is a cop-out. The belt is going to be warped after being woven through the seat and properly installed for weeks and months at a time. A frugal buyer of your used car is going to notice this immediately. If and when you are in an accident, even a minor one that doesn't total your car that seat belt MUST be replaced, along with your car seat. After market installations, even by a dealer, are never as good as the factory. The latch system was created to avoid the use of belts on car seats. Britax is looking to save a buck on parts, that is the bottom line. 2) The covers on my older Britax seats have loops in various places in order to keep the cover in place, facilitate easy cleaning and generally maintain a nice, clean appearance for the life of the seat. Those loops are gone with this seat and the cover slides and falls off DAILY. This is annoying. I do not want to spend Britax money on a Graco level product. Unfortunately, this is the way they are going. When I spoke to their engineer (yep, I got a hold of him) he basically stated that this was the design the company wanted. Sadly, I can no longer recommend Britax and will be concerned about the quality of their future products.
