I love the britax line of car seats! car seat is worth every penny! by any other brand because you get what you pay 4! I have two of the same car seats and my boys absolutely love them! he called them they're King seats! they are kind of big and bulky but I don't mind it because I have a minivan and my child safety and comfort comes first so it's definitely worth it! I use these car seats on a everyday basis and I love how easy it is to get my boys in and out of their seats very easily!

As good as I had hoped
March 8, 2014
After reading other reviews and checking out other makers, I felt confident that I had chosen the safest and sturdiest carseat. Once it arrived, I was extremely impressed. As a first time buyer of a carseat, thank you.......for all the information and reviews that made this decision possible.

Great carseat overall
March 5, 2014
This is a great car seat, probably one of the best. And the price here can't be beat! That being said, I was a little disappointed that there wasn't any packing material inside the box to keep the car seat from banging around during shipping. However I looked at this car seat at babies r us and the box and lack of packing material was the same, i guess this is just how they come. The manufacturing date was late 2013, the car seat was clean, all original tags were attached and it was wrapped in plastic. If you can make it through the successful installation of the car seat with your spouse, consider your marriage to be rock solid. This is likely one of the largest car seats on the market and we installed in (rear facing) into the back seat of a 2008 Honda Civic with success and just slightly less leg room in the front seat.

Comfortable and Safe

The added plastic shoulder strap retainer made it much more difficult to adjust the straps. I have an older model that doesn't have them and it is much easier to adjust.

Safest seat
May 14, 2013
I am buying this carseat after owning a britax advocate 70. My 4 mo old was in the seat when we were in a car accident. He was safe and sound! This seat is big but if your car will accommodate it, I think this is the safest seat out there. We had ours in a '99 Honda Civic and now in a 1210 Honda Crv. I had both seats professionally inspected regarding installation. It's big but its worth it!
  • Safety, price, durability
Best Uses
  • '99 Honda Civic, middle backseat, rear facing
  • '10 Honda CRV middle backseat, rear facing
  • Not the smallest seat on the market, probably won't fit all cars

Wonderful Seat
May 9, 2013
This is an incredible car seat. It is easy to install properly. It is easy to adjust as your baby grows. It is easy to buckle you baby. It is comfortable for the baby. It is durable and holds up well. You can feel from the construction how safe the seat is. We bought 3 advocates for my daughter when she was 10-months (my car, my husbands car and the nannys car). It was a kick in the gut to shell out the money for three of these seats, but it has been well worth the peace of mind and the ease of use. We are now buying 3 more for my son. The only possible con with this seat is it may not fit or be difficult to use in a small car. When we bought these seats I had a Ford Focus. It fit, but was hard to use when rear facing. It would have been easier to use front facing, but we replaced my car with a Ford Edge and I have no issues with space at all. I strongly suggest measuring your car if it is on the smaller side. Off the subject of the seat, but possibly useful, we have had good experiences shopping with Albee Baby.
  • May be large for a compact car

Love the seat....not the harness system (mainly versa tether)
March 9, 2013
I have always loved Britax and bought this one with new features thinking it would be better than my previous ones....I was wrong. The versa tether system I feel was not a good is difficult to use. I don't like that I have to pull out on the clip which in turn pulls the straps thru the tether because it is difficult to pull and I feel it doesnt pull out as far as my old britax seats. And when putting in a child you have to try...and I mean get those rubbery things pulled down so that the clip will be in the position it is supposed to be (at armpit level) and this is not easy! I know you're not supposed to wear bulky coats when in car seats but we live in indiana and thats not a good thing...however my grandsons coat isnt really bulky but even that I feel like I am trying to squish him into these straps...then try to pull down the rubbery grips...and its just a not fun process. However if no coat, it all works like a breeze! I don't know how this seat will possibly work when he''s bigger due to the straps not having enough "slack" to pull out :( very disappointed
  • nice seat
  • harness system with versa tether

The Mercedes of car seats!

We checked all stores and websites sales and this was the best deal in the US! We are very pleased and know that our precious little son will be safe and sound in our car....

Purchased this for my son at 6 months old and he is now 2 1/2 and still fits comfortably in it! It's very sturdy and safe! I'm purchasing one now for my other 7 month old son! Great seat worth every dollar. You can't put a price in your child's safety!
  • It's sturdy and very well built. And I like knowing my child is safe!

This is a very nice car seat. It reclines and has a lot of cushion. I have a 98 GMC Jimmy and placed the seat in the middle, back, rear facing. It is so big that I can't see my baby through the rear view mirror even with a baby mirror on the back seat facing her. The seat is just too tall. Also, there is not much room for her legs. She is 28 inches tall and she has to keep her legs slightly bent. I imagine this car seat works much better front facing.
  • Maximum weight limit, safety
  • Insufficient rear facing leg room, pretty large

Very easy to install though rear facing def hard to put my baby in the carseat cause he is a big baby and heavy, but that would be with any carseat forward facing is easier but right now rear facing is the safest for my baby and I love this carseat very comfy and safe for my baby!
  • It is larger on the sides but it doesn't bother me that much
  • I love knowing my baby is safe if an accident occurs
