Almost as expected
I should start by saying that we used a Keyfit for our last 2 babies and have 2 Britax convertible seats purchased in 2007. All of our car seats are expired and baby number 3 is on the way so I ordered a new Keyfit and figured I would give this a try for our 14 month old. I love that the seat seems very sturdy and safe and like that it has many recline options. I don't like that it takes me 3 times longer to load my 14 month old in this seat vs the Britax. With baby number 3 on the way I don't have time for this. The straps are difficult to pull tighten down. It does not have velcrow to secure the straps on the outside of the seat when loading in and out so they are constantly stuck under him. In general the straps seem shorter than in other seats and not long enough to flop over the edges. It is also a really deep seat which I'm assuming adds safety but it makes it harder to get a sleeping baby out because I have to dig under him and lift further. There is nothing wrong with this seat it's just not as user friendly as others. I think it will ge easier to use once my son is bigger but for now I'm making my husband use it while I find an alternative.

LOVE my Chicco Carseats
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.
ProsEasy, 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.
ConsIt 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.

Love it! Fits the car, fits the baby, easy install
In the great debate over safety versus ease of use, this car seat has done the best so far and achieves both. I originally got a Recaro convertible but that did not fit in my car well (Audi A4) and it now resides in my husband's car (4Runner). I really like our Chicco Keyfit for the infant seat but this one feels so much more secure and safe. The versatility with the recline has made if the easiest install of a seat in my car yet. I haven't tried forward facing, but know that there are enough options that it will work. The second pull on the latch strap is a great development. If I had to move this from car to car every day or on occasion, it's much easier than other's I have tried.

This is the second Nextfit seat I have purchased in the last 2 years (one for son/one for daughter). Correct installation is quick and easy and the seat has one of the highest safety ratings.

Great choice when graduating from the Chicco Keyfit 30
We purchased this carseat when our daughter outgrew the Chicco Keyfit 30 and have been incredibly happy! It's not small, however she absolutely loves her 'cockpit' as it's been lovingly deemed. Installing was quite easy, as was switching her from rear-facing to front-facing when she was 2 years old. She is of average weight and stature, and it seems like this carseat will still fit her for quite some time (she is almost 3 now). The construction is incredibly solid and it looks as new as when we first purchased. We're now expecting twins and will be purchasing these again when they are ready!

Kids enjoy riding in it
I've had this seat for a couple years now. Bought 2 (1 for each car) because the price was great. My daughter enjoys riding it the seat as much as can be expected. She would rather be running around outside and not stuck in the car. But she doesn't complain on short rides. The removable cup holder works great too. She can reach her sippy cup and when the cars full, I can remove it.
ProsWell padded good side protection easy to spot clean Easy to switch between cars
ConsHeavy Hard to clean fully for large spills

Quality seat but doesn't work well rear-facing
This carseat is a breeze to install, the fabric is heavy-duty, and I love how secure the seat gets. Right now I'm using the carseat in the rear-facing position. It is next to impossible to get the harness tightened from that angle. The seat is in the way, so you have to pull up on the strap instead of down and it's really hard to do. I went back to using her Chicco infant carrier as a carseat until I use this forward facing. I'm really disappointed.

Best car seat for our baby girl!
I love this car seat!! my daughter is currently 4 months and we decided to buy this convertible car seat instead of the typical infant car seat due to our previous experience with our son. We had spend a good amount of money on a infant car seat when I was pregnant with my son, just to switch to a convertible car seat by the time he was 6 months because he was getting to big for his seat. So this time, we decided to go straight to the convertible car seat. I did my homework and picked this one for my daughter. My daughter fit perfectly when she was a newborn, she would fall back to sleep as soon as you strap her in, and will not wake up during the ride. I feel more calm knowing she's is in a more secure in this car sear than a infant seat. It is heavy however I do not mind that at all!

It's easy to wash and reassemble when kids have accidents. It's easy to install. My child who always complains of a sore butt finds this seat the most comfortable of all the ones we've owned.

ConsOnly rear faces to 40 lbs

Great seat overall
Love almost everything about this seat. I would even buy it again. My biggest complaint about the seat is that the zip feature makes it super easy to take out and wash, however the white plastic piping that runs around the seats edge is supposed to look like leather. Mine looks horrible after 2 years of washing it (not very often). It looks very worn. The white has worn off and is not very attractive anymore. The seat itself has a few stains, but other than that has stayed pretty stain free. I would recommend this seat on its ease of use rather than how it looks after 2 years. Had a Graco with my oldest son and it looks great still, however is not even close to being the caliber of seat this one is!

Great car seat
Not quite as nice as the NextFit Zip, but a great option for your second vehicle where you don't need all the features of the Zip. Same car seat as the Zip but the fabric and finish isn't quite as luxurious. Super easy to install, as well. You can be confident that your kid will be safe in this one!

Highly recommended
I've been using this car seat for a year, ever since my son was a newborn. It was the car seat we brought him home in from the hospital at 8 lbs. He's now 30 lbs and 31" at a year old and still rear-facing. Overall, the seats been amazing. The bubble level-indicators are great in ensuring the seat is properly level for your vehicle and the LATCH or seat belt installation options mean it can be installed in so many different vehicles. I was in a small accident where I was rear-ended and pushed into the vehicle in front of me so a double-impact accident. My son was in his car seat at the time and slept through the accident. I've never once felt my son was unsafe in his seat as it's very well-padded and, more importantly, very sturdy. Plenty of people thought I was crazy for opting out of an infant seat, but I never second-guessed my decision with the NextFit Zip. I've also washed it a couple of times since having it and it's a little tricky to get on and off the seat and the headrest cannot be washed, but being able to wash most of the material is a definite plus. When it comes time to purchase another seat for my second child, I will be purchasing another NextFit Zip, no questions asked.

Comfortable and safe
My 4 year old is so happy with the comfort and color of this car seat! She told me she likes how if she falls askeep, her head doesn't roll all over. I agree because it's so sad to see a child in a car seat slumped over as it looks so uncomfortable! Very easy for my daughter to climb in and me tighten the straps.

Love the seat
We have had this car seat for just over 2 years now and love it. Its heavy and holds my son in snug. He's very tall but we were able to extend rearfacing with no issues and he never seemed uncomfortable. My only complaints are it's a bit hard for me to tighten as easily as my husband, its difficult to use the latch system when transferring vehicles and the neck straps rub on my son's neck. These may be issues that have been addressed by now. Overall we love it and will be using it with our next one with a new cover.

The perfect car seat
This car seat is amazing. It fits so snug in your car. I bought 2 other car seats before buying a Chicco. I won't ever buy any brand ever again. The latch system gets the car seat so tight, that it won't even budge. That is so important to me. I recommend this car seat to any one and everyone.

Love this car seat
Our 3 year old and 15 month old both use the nextfits. We have 2 of these care seats in both my car and my husbands car. While they are pricey you can't beat their safety. They are easy to install and use. We are very happy with them! The only downside is that it is a little tough to get the cover off to wash (which is why they developed the nextfit zip version!) but it is doable. We've only had 2 incidents where we have had to remove the cover in 3 years, so it it hasn't been a big deal. No problems with any other aspect of the car seat. Our 3 year old boy is 30 lbs now so I expect to be able to use this for quite a while for him.
ProsEasy to install, safe, comfy.
ConsChallenging to remove cover to wash and put back on.... but we have managed. I make my husband do that part and I wash it on gentle cycle and air dry.

Very disappointed!
I've had this carseat for a year and must say I'm very disappointed. I wanted to love this seat but cannot. I also own the chicco infant and that is a fabulous seat. The harness/straps on the chicco convertable are so difficult to properly tighten, especially if you suffer from arthritis. If you can't snuggly secure you're child in the seat, it negates all the supposed safety benefits. The bottom plastic buckle is oddly placed and digs into the inner thigh of my son when he is wearing shorts. The sides are high and bucket-like seat, deep, so it is also difficult to get him in when it is rear facing. My son always appears uncomfortable and awkward when in the seat. I really wanted to love this seat but it has been one of my worst and expensive baby purchases. I am astounded by the number of positive reviews this seat continues to get. I'd say the only good thing is that it is a sturdily built, albeit, heavy car seat.

For Fit and Finish Chicco definitely fits the bill
I've purchased a convertible child seat from another manufacturer and you can definitely tell that the difference is night and day. Plenty of thought went into the design and creation of the Chicco NextFit. Fitting the child seat into your vehicle can be a tricky thing. NOT with this seat as it clearly has points to make sure that it is set optimally for your child safety. For example to aid in the installation of your child seat they have designed tensioners so you can make sure the seat is securely latched to your vehicle and wont flop around sending your child flying. My friend highly recommend this seat and I will be the first to admit he was dead right when he said what a great car seat The Chicco NextFit is. If you can only afford one car seat for your new born straight to booster please choose this one. YOU WON'T BE LET DOWN.
ProsBesides the high quality material I have to to say the overall design. I had a big bulky car seat previously that we use in my wife's car for my daughter and while it fits okay in my SUV it's horrendous as it completely blocks the view of my blind spot so I cannot see if there is a vehicle there or not. NOT with the chicco NextFit. I can tell you this seat is 100 times better.
ConsNone that I can see.

Easy to install. Perfect!
I was nervous about this carseat purchase. We purchased a Britax online without trying it in my car and it was a bad fit (it ended up in my husband's car). We had used the Chicco key and fit and my reaction to it was "eh." But I love this carseat. It feels really sturdy! I really like all of the reclining options- it gives you a lot of room to achieve a great fit! Right out of the box, I installed it myself in under 5 minutes! My daughter seems really comfortable. It would be heavy to lug around. But it fits our needs for sure!

Overall happy
I have owned this car seat for a year. I have several other Chico products (Stroller, double stroller, keyfit, high chair, & more). Overall, I LOVE every Chicco product I have ever owned. I highly recommend any product they sell. I am a huge Chicco car seat advocate. I have been a car seat technician and love everything about the ease of the installation, safety features etc. it's always the one I recommend to family and friends. I am hoping they come out with a combination seat! The reason I gave this car seat a 4 is recently I have had my first big diasspointment with this product. We have both the nextfit and nextfit zip. I love the ease of the zip feature. My disappointment is that there is no way to fully remove the straps. My toddler recently caught a stomach bug that came out of no where. Of course we were out and had to drive home with her puking every 5 minutes. Since the straps are not removable I am not able to get it completely cleaned. This is disappointing because I now have to choose to buy a new seat or have to always smelling like vomit. I know a friend that had the same issue. It's very frustrating when you spend so much money that it's something that can't always be cleaned. It's a toddler car sways and with toddlers these thing she are bound to happen. Like I said overall awesome products but this did make my perfect rating drop some.
