Overall this carseat is great! This being our 3rd child, we have bought several carseats from different manufacturers and we have been pleasantly surprised with Maxi-Cosi. We were given the stroller and a carseat from a friend; however, the carseat was entirely too old as it only had a 3 point harness, but we loved the ergonomic stroller, so we opted to find a reasonably priced carseat that fit instead of getting a whole new system. When this arrived (speedily) we were impressed by the style, color and durability. It's quite cushy for our little one!
ConsIts quite heavy without the baby.
I do wish the canopy extended a bit further forward so the sun actually stayed off the baby's face.
The base is also quite heavy, but I believe it's part of its durability.
