I received this about a month ago. I really like that it is easy to buckle the harness! Much easier than our Graco Nautilus, which I have to fight with and really push together to get buckled. I like the dual cupholders with the extra cutout spaces (good for small cars, etc). I actually switched my son to this carseat from a Marathon because cupholders were becoming a necessity. My son seems to like riding in it. The fabric has a sheen to it that I think will be easier to wipe clean. This is a nice-looking, heavy, sturdy carseat, and the other carseats I own are the Britax Marathon, Frontier 85 and the Graco Nautilus. No trouble at all to install using the latch system in the car. I would buy this carseat any day over the Nautilus, and this one is made in USA. I think it is a great value.
Pros:the harness buckle
lots of safety features
sturdy harness straps
Cons:heavy, but I won't ever be switching it out of the car.
