Exceeded my expectations!
It was a toss up between this car seat and the Britax Marathon, but I couldn't justify paying over 2x the price for another car seat. This car seat is for our spare car. In our primary car we have an Evenflo Titan Dlx, which we have used for 1.5 years and love. But I must say, I really like this Eddie Bauer seat better. I like the fact that it's less bulky than the Evenflo, and I like how easy it was for me to tighten the straps to the latch. I also like how after I've tightened it, it remained very stable with no wiggle room (unlike other car seats I've tried where they've always wiggled in my car). I have this car seat in a mid-size sedan car, and it works great. So happy I bought it! My daughter, who is 2.5, loves it to.
