Nice carseat, but weak cover
December 15, 2012
I would rate this carseat an overall 5, except that just this weak the fabric cover has ripped. My 11 month old gets sick often and when trying to pull off the cover, I'll admit I was using force and going quickly to try to get back to crying baby and get rid of the throw up, the corner ripped and now it looks terrible. We just purchased it six weeks ago and I'm disappointed that the fabric looks used/aged and like the tear is going to continue. Also, considering my daughter gets sick a lot, I'm sure the next time we put it off/on the rip will grow. I am wondering if Britax would replace the cover? This carseat was recommended to us and we are super bummed to have to replace the cover already. I would include a picture, but honestly who has time with an 11 month old!
Pros:Pink is not too pink
plush, comfortable feel
not too wide as compared to other carseats
Cons:The cover seems to not be durable based on our experience.
