daughter really likes it
June 12, 2012
My 9month old recently made a switch to this convertible car seat and she likes this whole lot better than the infant car seat. She used to cry all the time when we were in the car until she passed out from exhaustion, but now she's pretty comfortable and happy. This particular car seat's fabric has a velvety feel, but doesn't get dirty easily. It's really soft and even in hot weather, it seems to maintain somewhat of a normal temperature so when my daughter gets in the car, she's not surprised by the overwhelming heat from the seat. One thing I find hard to do is buckling, but after a while, you do get used to it. My daughter is still a little small for this convertible car seat since her head angles into an awkward position when she sleeps and if your baby is under 1, you may want to consider the headrest that comes with the other britax models. Otherwise, very happy with the purchase.

An excellent car seat

This is a solidly made product which will allow for safe passage of an infant. It is easy to install and is well tolerated by a little girl who does not like riding in the car. We are very pleased.

We love our daughters new car seat. She rides so much better in it and I am at ease knowing she is in one of the safest car seats on the market. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking or debating. This is the most important item you will buy your child, safety is what is important and Britax is the best!

This is my 2nd marathon car seat and I love all the new improvements in this seat!! My baby always looks so comfortable in this seat! The material on the "Allison" pattern is very soft and cozy! Most of all it's a very well rated car seat for safety. I would recommend this car seat, you will not be disappointed.

Great Car Seat!

This is our first forward-facing seat, after upgrading from the Graco Snugride 32. Our girls always hated the Graco, but they are comfy in this seat, and are finally able to sleep in it. Secures very easily too. We don't own a car, so I have to quickly install it in our rentals. Very easy after reading the instructions and some frustrating first efforts,
  • Very comfortable for the kids, and easy to install. Cool pink, too!
  • Heavy, but about what I would expect.
very different than classic marathon!

I love it and hate it. I love that I don't have to adjust straps manually and is as simple as pulling the lever for different levels needed... but it is so hard to do it while the child is sitting in it...(my 1yr old) the recline is ok. does not really recline once is installed you have to set it prior to installing it in the car... love the sides of the chair.. my child feels more protected and their head does not move around as much as the classic...
  • sides of the chair are higher
  • the lever is stiff sometimes to set to a different level while child is seating in the chair...

Both me and my daughter love this seat to pieces!! She is always so comfortable and snug in it. I'm definitely buying it again for my next daughter due in July. It has done an amazing job of keeping my baby safe. I was involved in a major car accident that ended up totaling my car and this car seat definitely saved my daughters life. She came out of it all without even so much as a sore muscle because of how sturdy this seat is. Despite the severity of the accident the seat didn't sustain any damage either! Not even so much as a ripped seam or torn strap! It's worth the extra money to spend knowing what my daughter went through and how she came out of it. I couldn't ask for more out of a car seat.

So far so good!

I just received this and installed it this morning. I have to say I already love it! The ease of adjusting the shoulder straps without having to re-thread them is GOLDEN in my book! The LATCH system made the installation quick and painless!!!! The colors are adorable and are exactly as pictured online. The only disappointment is the fabric and wash instructions. The fabric feels like a synthetic velvet and I'm a bit worried about that in the Arizona heat (although anything would be better than the Graco Snugride 32 Bombay fabric, my poor daughter was sweating mid-summer with the A/C blasting!). I'm also a bit concerned about washing. It states to only hand wash. I would have rather had a cover that was machine washable but we'll make do! The safety was my main concern and the reputation of Britax can't be beat!
  • Easy installation
  • Easy adjustments
  • Fabric and fabric care
