Purchased this for my toddler when she turned three(it was a slight different model, colors differ). We used it front facing only, and hasn't been much of a problem.
The cup holder can be easily changed from one side to another, yet it doesn't come loose when being used or bumped by things in transit.
It's easy to feed the lap and shoulder belt through with the flap on the lower back fabric.
The latch system hook is a tad difficult to loosen when attempting to switch vehicles, but that is probably a benefit so it won't loosen when driving.
There's not a lot of side-to-side head restraint, but I'm undecided in the real benefit. When my child, who is now nearly 5, falls asleep her head easily sways left to right. The higher end seats with head rest supports might prevent the situation.
Otherwise, I can see how other reviewers would have a tough time fitting it rear-facing as it does seem to be a little large. However, truthfully told, I've never had a rear facing car seat fit well in any vehicle other than the newer style Dodge/Chrysler minivans. I'm 6'1" and my seat is set high and far back so I typically sat uncomfortable until my child was not in the car.
