I'm so glad I bought this car seat! It was so easy to install and it is very comfortable for my 2 year old daughter. I was a little hesitant about purchasing this due to some negative reviews on not being able to tighten or putting it together but no. It was easy to tighten and install!  see moreof Itskhammy's review

    We tried another seat before this one and had to take it back. This one is so much nicer and easier to install. Its not as easy as our infant seat was, but much better than other convertibles we've tried, so I'd probably put it in the middle as far as ease of installation goes. I'm sure if you got a...  see moreof Chelsea's review

      I love this car seat! This is actually the 3rd one that I have purchased - 1 for my car, 1 for my fiance's truck and 1 for the grandparents. It is not super small or lightweight but it will fit in the back of a Ford Focus (rear facing). It is very easy to use and install. I love the height adjus...  see moreof jdoty89's review

        I loved this seat. My son is now 20 months, I've had it since he was 10 months. I have had no issues. The price was great, and it's easy to use. I have no issues whatsoever adjusting the straps.  see moreof KPrin's review

          We bought this seat for my moms car for when she watches our son. This is IMPOSSIBLE to tighten. I have to literally sit in the seat and still can't tighten it. Using the latch system AND seatbelt together. Even had my mom try to tighten it while I sit in the seat. It's next to impossible to loosen ...  see moreof Katbug's review

            I bought this carseat and could not install correctly. I couldn't tighter the seat and when i would go over a bump or turn a corner the carseat would move. Maybe it would fit better in a different car. I tried rolling a towel underneath it and still would be too loose. I returned it and got an Evenf...  see moreof Macke's review

              I purchased this seat for my son to use in my husband's car. I absolutely hate this seat. It was next to impossible to tighten even with the latch system. We ended up taking it to the police station to have it installed and even they had problems. Now we can't remove the car seat from the car becaus...  see moreof erin's review

                verified purchaser
                I bought this seat while pregnant because you should be able to use a convertible seat for an infant 5+lbs. Problem is, because of that newborn insert you can't adjust the straps down to "at or below the shoulders" of an infant. The shoulders sit at about 2" above my daughters shoulders at their low...  see moreof Sedenfi's review
