As i live overseas and my bro would be schlepping it, i did extensive research before making a decision. I looked at every parameter and read hundreds of reviews. The price was also a factor to consider. I just got this seat 1month ago and I LOVE IT. Was super easy to install, doesnt move at all when u shake it. Easy to get the baby in and out. The seat is nice and wide and plenty of room in the front of it, so i can see she will use it for many years to come. There r 3 levels of strap adjustment for the in between the legs, so if yo baby is on the tall side like mine, u will have no problems at all. As i read reviews from a while ago, i was concerned with straps and tightening. Let me tell u, the straps r super easy to connect and to tighten, the little notch--NOT the rolling ball as in some- for release (to loosen them) is very easy as well. Soft pads for neck and in between legs r very useful and pleasant (previous seat didnt have it and baby would get shafts). When i read about ppl being all hyped about cup holder, i laughed and thought it silly. BUT now that i have it, sheesh-what a nice little addition. The baby likes playing with 2 "secret" compartments-cute addition (if the space allowed for the design of it-why not). The material seems durable and pleasant, hope she wont sweat in the summer as climate in Israel is hot and very hot:) Overall, i very highly recommend it. If anything will happen, God forbid, hope the service will be good, but u can never predict stuff like that. Only one wish for the designers of it-if it was front AND back facing-it would have made it perfect. Yes, i prefer having her next to me, facing back(facing me actually:)) and not being able to do it with this seat is the only drawback for me.
