Hi there, I recently received this car seat as a gift. What a wonderful surprise! I was thinking of keeping my son in the previous car seat for a while longer. But he was becoming taller than the top part of the previous car seat. He loves the cup holders. He tells everyone that he met that he has cup holders now. He puts toys and cups in there. And I think this seat has some type of temperature regulation. :-) He does not complain about the cold in the morning anymore. It breaks my heart when he complains about the cold because there is not much I can do until the car warms up in the morning. But thanks to this Evenflo car seat, no more heartaches! Also, it is very easy to install. It took me 3 minutes to install. Previously, I have to rely on my husband to install. Or, I am out of luck. But now, I can install it myself. I had a Britax car seat before - the most expensive one in their line. It was so hard to install. I still could not figure it out. One time it took me 30 minutes before I finally gave up. This Evenflo car seat is very intuitive and no need assembly, unlike the first seat I had from Graco.
