LOVE my Chicco Carseats
November 1, 2013
I had a Keyfit 30 infant seat and was sad that Chicco didn't have a convertible seat, as my DD approached the limit not long ago. Finally my hopes were fulfilled, and they came out with this seat. I bought one immediately from another retailer for my 2011 Honda Pilot. It is just as easy to install as the Keyfit base was. It has the same built-in level and has multiple recline positions. The straps have been hard to move at first, when compared to the Keyfit infant seat. However, when it came time for my mother to get a convertible seat for her car, we tried another, less expensive seat/brand, and were seriously disappointed. We ended up returning that seat immediately and buying this one for her 2010 Honda Accord and a third one for my husband's 2003 Pilot. The quality is beyond compare. My DD is secure and comfortable, but the thing that sold me immediately and has made me a die-hard Chicco fan is the fact that they are SO easy to install. If it's not isntalled properly, the child cannot be safe.
Pros:Easy, easy, easy to install. Fits VERY well in a sedan (Honda Accord). We don't even have to move the passenger seat up to accomodate it. We did have to move the seat up in the Pilots, but an adult (5'8") passenger can still fit comfortably in the front seat.
Cons:It is heavy. This is not a seat that you're going to easily move from one car to another. However, what we found was that it was worth the investment in additional seats for other vehicles just because it's such a sturdy and well-made seat.
