We bought this convertible car seat right before we went on vacation so our son would have a more comfortable drive, and he definitely did! This seat is very spacious and the print is very appealing. I found the seat fairly easy to install, however it's very difficult to tighten/loosen the strap of the anchors (with seat rear-facing). I'm not sure if that's a faulty part on my seat or just how they are generally made. Thankfully, we wont be taking the seat in and out of the car too much, otherwise this would be a pretty frustrating issue. The Cup holders are also too small for the majority of his sippy-cups, but if we take out the dishwasher safe part, they hold most sizes and he loves that feature. The cup-holders aren't to hard to clean, either. The buckle is very easy with getting him in and out. Also, he really broke the carseat in on our vacation (with eating in his seat throughout the road-trip) that I had to wash the seat cover immediately when we got back, and it was very easy to get the cover off and in the wash (and back on!). I'm very happy with this seat overall, and we can't wait for him to be front-facing so he can enjoy the seat even more.
