Like most consumers, I read many many reviews before deciding on this product...
I loved all the features that it had to offered for a forward facing car seat; especially the tilt feature, since the biggest problem with forward facing is your child falling asleep and doing the head-bob-thing. HOWEVER, the matter of tilting is pulling the base outwards... not so much for tilting the back of the seat. When my son, who just so happens to be right on that fine line of being able to actually ride in the seat (he's not quit the recommended height as the label describes) is buckled in and it is in the "reclined" position, he is still sitting straight up and his legs and feet are at a 45 degree angle. He doesn't seem to care, but it looks horribly uncomfortable. One thing I really like about the car seat is the straps that do not have to be re-threaded once the child gets taller. You only have to follow the instructions on the movable headrest and wa-la! Scary thing though, I stated earlier that my son is actually a bit short of the recommend height of this car seat and I actually had to move the straps up one already...It states a minimum of 34"and only has three length settings... My son was only 29.5" at his last appointment a week after I bought this seat! For the design of it, it is really sturdy, light, and will fit well in a SUV or larger cabin vehicle. For the comfort and padding for the seat, I feel it is just enough cushion, but some areas (ie arm rest) could be a bit softer. If you read a few of the other reviews you will notice many saying it is heavy and to buy two since it is a great buy, because it is such a hassle to put it in the car... I did not have that experience, but a bit of advice... if you feel that you have any complications putting in a car seat, it is ALWAYS best to stop by your local Fire/Police/Highway Patrol Dept and they will provide a helping hand to ensure the safety of your child!! So in conclusion, this seat may work for you and again it may not.
