After shopping around and reading the mostly rave reviews here, we settled on this model of carseat for our almost one year old boy, who is the size of the average 2 year old. The fit is great, the ease of installation and buckling him in is fine, but I was a little disappointed with the recline position, which may or may not be due to the actual seat in my car...(in the rear-facing position) the seat didn't recline enough for him to lean back comfortably, so when he fell asleep, his head would flop forward and all around while driving. I bought an expensive neck pillow for toddlers, which only worsened the situation. So, I positioned a pillow and some blankets under the seat to provide more incline and strapped it down very tightly. I may have compromised safety for the sake of comfort. Additionally, after only about 2 weeks of owning it, this seat hase been recalled due to the buckle not unbuckling. I have only had this seat a couple of weeks and I have noticed sometimes only one of the two straps will come unbuckled when I push the release button, but pushing it again works. Apparently I now have to order and install a replacement buckle from Evenflo... But, overall, I would say it's a good seat for the money. Others of the same quality and features cost anywhere from 50-100$ more.
