I did a lot of research before purchasing this seat.
For weeks actually. I also subscribed to consumer reports to see what they had to say. It was tied for first place with the Britax Roundabout. They both received an 81/100.
It is a very big and kind of heavy seat. Our car is an older model without the LATCH system, so installation was time consuming, but not the seats fault. It fits wonderfully in Grandma's minivan that does have the LATCH system, and only takes a minute or two to install.
Once properly in place in the center back seat, rear facing, it seems to be very safe and sturdy. We also like that our son will be in a five point harness until he's 50 lbs. Most seats only have five point up to 40 lbs.
The seat is very soft and comfortable. The pads pull up for seat belt or LATCH threading, which is wonderful, no guessing if it's in the right place, or getting your hands stuck.
I have family members who have spent the over $300 for the Britax models, and ours seems to be just as safe, sturdy and seure as theirs. MAKE sure you read all installation instructions first. It looks easy, but there is an extra step to be sure LATCH is properly installed......SAFETY first!!
