We bought four total (two sets for each of our vehicles). One set is rear facing with the anti-rebound bar (for our 2 year old) and one set is forward facing (for our 5 year old). Couldn't ask for an easier setup- including the rebound bar (not sure why others are saying it's complicated), adjustments are conveniently done and strapping them in is simple too. We love, love, love these car seats. Still have a while until the oldest outgrows his, but when he does we will certainly replace it with a Britax booster.

Thank you for saving my daughter
We are about to move up to the next stage, and thus writing to thank the designers and makers of Britax Advocate for saving my daughter's life. Throughout the car seat's almost 5 years of service with us, it had been in 2 accidents, one of which was rather severe and the mini-van was totaled. My daughter has been saved, both time, thanks largely to the excellent design of the car seat. Buying this car seat is among the best investments we have done. Thank you.
Keep my baby safe in an accident
We were rear-ended at 50mph from a minivan while we were stopped. My 10month old was kept extremely safe and secure. I am so thankful we splurged on this model. We are replacing the accident car seat with the exact same model. I will always continue to buy Britax. Thank you to the talented engineers and safety teams. You saved my babies life and I will be forever grateful.
Easy to Install
We purchased this seat Oct 2015 when our girl was 7 months old. She's still rear facing at 3 years 3 months old, and should be able to continue rear facing for a while as she is around 35 lbs. This seat is easy to install, easy to clean, and overall has been a fantastic seat. We are about to purchase seat #2 for baby #2, and plan on purchasing the same seat. The only complaint we would have is after almost 3 years, it no longer "clicks", but at this point, we feel pretty confident that we are tightening the belts as needed for safety.
This saved his life
I bought this months ago. My son is rear facing at 15 months old. We were just T-Boned on his car seat side by somebody who ran a red light going 55 mph. I thought the worst. When I woke up to look back, he was completely ok. The door was jammed. The airbags went off. And the car seat didn't move. It's a miracle and I owe it all to Britax. The police even said they have never seen anything like it and that whoever installed it did it perfectly (Thanks husband). I must say, the rebound bar was not attached. I found it too difficult to install. But I'm buying this exact car seat again b/c of what it did for my son. THANK YOU BRITAX!!!!!
Love everything about this seat!
We bought this after my daughter grew out of her britax bsafe 35 elite (after loving that seat) and we couldn't be more happy with it! There is no price on safety and comfort and britax knows how to do both! The ease of install with the click tight system puts every other car seat brand to shame, not to mention the comfort level! I will never buy another brand of car seats. Britax's click tight ease of install, comfort, and safety standards make buying their brand a no brainer! Love britax!
Super plush and really secure
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I've been using this seat for a few weeks and so far I'm very pleased with it. The initial installation took me a bit longer than I had expected. Make sure that you pre-tilt the base before you install this in your vehicle, or you'll be sorry. The click tight feature on the harness straps is a really nice feature. It makes it super easy to loosen and tighten each time baby gets in or out. Attaching the car seat belt and securing it is also SUPER easy. You just feed it through and click the seat closed to tighten. No more struggling with the belts.
The ARB (anti-rebound bar) was easy to install but feels a little strange because it doesn't click in or hold securely onto the car seat. It does stay in place once the seat is fully installed but can easily fall out of the slots if you readjust or move the seat.
Overall, I really do like this seat and would recommend it to other parents. To me, the extra security and safety measures are awesome. The accessories are really handy and great for everyday use. I also love the fact that I can continue to use this seat as she grows. Now my baby falls asleep so fast in her new seat and I can't believe this fits so tight and secure in my small compact car. It's a keeper! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I bought this for my grandchild for when she is with us to keep from changing out the seat from car to car. It can be cumbersome to get the seat clicked into my Jeep Grand Cherokee, and getting it to sit perpendicular, I think this is from the way the bottom seat is made in the Jeep; the car seat sits a little sideways. I like the safety features of the seat but I feel that the red handle that allows you to tilt the seat can be very aggravating to use and it has popped off several times trying to get the seat to tilt. Just to clarify that it is with it not being in the car; strapped in. Everything else is good. We also purchased the cup holder, it works good. I know we had to remove the rubber grip from around the mouth of the cup holder because my grandchild could not get her cup out of it. It works good, her cups don't fall out.
Great with 1 Flaw
I have 3 of these chairs and another Marathon. They are incredibly well made and very sturdy. This feels like a very safe and well manufactured product. There is one flaw that I've see in all four chairs: on occasion one of the shoulder straps tightens more than the other. Even after fully extending them to “reset” the straps and then trying to tighten them again, the imbalance remains. Your choice is to have one side super tight or else the child doesn't feel secure. I thought this was only one of my chairs, but the same issue has happened with all four. You have to hold the strap that tights quicker and pull that back while trying to tighten at the same time.
Heavy, hard to install, manual is not easy to understand, doesnt recline as it should, will be returning it
