Super comfy car seat

My little guy really likes the comfort of this car seat. I love how safe it feels and seems to be in the car. Very secure and trust it for sure!
Difficult To Tighten
By Kylie

on October 12, 2021
Verified Buyer
My baby is wiggly and the crotch strap is too low so it's super difficult to get her buckles safely and it takes a long time. I wouldn't buy this seat again. My kids do seem cozy in it rear facing (3, 1) and the seat itself isn't too difficult to install. I just wish the straps were easier to tighten.

Gets the job done - not my favorite
By Rebecca

I needed an extra car seat for our nanny. I ended up giving her our Nuna, and keeping this one in my husbands car since he drives her less than myself and the nanny. It gets the job done, but its not as comfortable as the Nuna and my daughter complains every time she's in it. It looks nice, but she's able to remove the cupholders and then the cover just hangs off it. I wouldn't buy again, but do not see any real issue with the car seat. The price was great!

The straps hurt my child, it digs into her thighs, they are always tangled, the buckle is so hard to unbuckle the child and my child always tells me she hates her car seat and it hurts. I would never purchase maxi cosi again

This car seat is great , my granddaughter loves it. She is now able to sit up like a big girl and see outside as we drive. She is very curious so she loves that. When she does get tired the recline feature is amazing and lays her all the way back to nap. The installing of the seat is a little complicated weather itís rear facing or forward facing.
Pros
  • Recliner
Cons
  • Installing and re- installing

Bought this for my son and he loves it the cushions are excellent. I like how with the adjustment of the back automatically adjusts the belt without having to take the seat apart to loop it higher or lower. The cushions are amazing and well padded for a baby and for toddler. The 2 cup holders are a plus. Thinking of buying another one.
Luxury Car Seat
By Paige M.

I really like the car seat. I was happy to find such a nice car seat for so cheap. I was skeptical at first but itís perfect! My only issue is that the buckle is pretty hard to latch and unlatch. I have found my rhythm now so it doesnít bother me anymore but that might deter people from likening this seat. My husband doesnít like it as much though. He canít understand why itís so hard to latch. I personally feel like my baby is a little safer because of it lol
Pros
  • Safe and big
Cons
  • Hard to latch

Not great for infant- better for toddler
By Elizabeth
from Nashville, TN
on April 22, 2021
Verified Buyer
I purchased this seat when my 3 month old son got to heavy to lift in and out of the car in infant carrier car seat (17 lbs). With the infant inserts, he just didnít fit right and appeared uncomfortable. The straps cut into his chunky legs. I swapped him and big brother (who also has a maxi cosi convertible seat- euro Max). My toddler (2 year old) fits better plus he enjoys the cup holders. He also sits up higher and can see out the window which he enjoys.
Install was simple when following directions!using the latch system. It is a larger car seat so fits better behind passenger seat in Toyota Tacoma when rear facing.
I probably would not purchase again for an infant but seems suitable for toddler and I like the growth it offers in one seat, so hopefully it will exceed expectations as we grow.

Preferred Over Diono
By Stephanie
from San Antonio, Texas
on March 31, 2021
Verified Buyer
I was tired of rethreading my Diono every time my baby had a growth spurt so I hit the market again for another seat. My baby seems more comfortable in this one and sleeps while in it. I live the built in cup holders for future use, my toddlers also have Diono and the clip on cup holder is always falling off. It is a padded seat bit still gives great support. The height expansion is mind blowing. I love I can collapse it for precious seat space RF but later can make the entire seated height grow with my baby. I'm replacing all my other seats with this!
Pros
  • Grows with baby
  • Rear facing space saver
  • Narrow
  • Comfortable
  • Easy height adjustment / no rethread
  • Neck cushions are a great size, not bulky against a newborn and still big enough for a toddler
  • Proper installation is a breeze
Best Uses
  • Rear facing
  • Forward facing
  • One car, it's heavy to move back and forth BUT the installation is a breeze
Cons
  • I have zero complaints about this seat

Easy to disassemble and clean. We loved this seat so much that we went and bought a second one once our daughter was born. The only thing that kinda stinks is that the cupholders do come out really easy to the point that they sometimes come out when you take the kid out of the seat too.

Very nice quality. I like the adjustments you can make to seat back height and the recline. It fits nicely behind the passenger in my 2017 Escape which was much harder to do with my other car seat. Relatively easy to install and seems comfortable for my 15 month old.
Pros
  • Adjustability
  • Easy to Install
  • Nice Materials
Best Uses
  • Mid-size cars that have trouble fitting longer seats like Diono
Cons
  • Width

My wife and I are first time parents, so some of this stuff is touch and go. We had a carseat for my wife's car already, but since our baby girl outgrew her baby seat I was on the hunt for a seat for mine. I started searching around and found albeebaby, and maxi cosi seats. I was impressed with the features and pricing and decided to give it a shot. My girl wasn't happy in the infant seat at all, by all means hated the seat... fast-forward a few months i install this seat. 5 minutes in this seat typically she's asleep, and if not asleep content

I highly recommend this seat.
Pros
  • elegant, comfortable, safe, stylish.
Cons
  • tricky adjustment and set up.

I fell in love with this car seat as soon as I took it out of the box! It is a bit heavy to be transferring it from car to car, but I feel thatís a good thing because it means itís safer and feels very sturdy and high quality. I got it in the color emerald tide and itís so much prettier in person! I did a lot of research before purchasing and read many reviews stating that it was very hard to tighten the straps, but I didnít find it to be difficult, installation was also fairly easy. Overall happy with my purchase. I was worried baby wouldnít adjust to the car seat change since she loved her Nuna Pipa, but baby seems to be very comfortable in it!

Itís heavier than the pria I already have for my other kid. But otherwise my little one likes it. Sheís even starting to take naps in the car again. She is low tone and this has more cushion than her last car seat, making it more comfortable for her. The fabric is nice and easy to clean I just wish it was more breathable in this Florida heat.

This car seat is perfect! We wanted something that would last longevity but also as our extra car seat/to be prepared for baby number two! Our daughter loves this seat - she snuggles in and is chill the whole time. The buckle is easy to manage, the strap release works smooth as butter! My only complaint is the straps get twisted easily but, because they get twisted EASILY, it is just as easy to straighten them back out. Iíd for sure by this seat again!
Pros
  • Comfortable, easy to use
Cons
  • Straps twist easily

This carseat is padded amazingly for comfort of your little one. I imagine it's like sitting in a padded recliner. Everytime my little one gets in it she falls asleep and that's saying something, as she hates car rides. This car seat has made a huge impact on her ability to ride comfortably when we have to go out. This carseat is just amazing.

I purchased this for my 2 year old. He seems to love it. The comfort and safety is our top concerns when buying a car seat and we have always loved maxi cosi for both of those reasons. We donít have issues with his head falling and he doesnít complain about getting in his seat with it. It is a great fit and he will be in this seat for many years to come with the different options. To make it even better purchasing and shipping with Albee baby is always easy and quick. I recommend maxi cosi to everyone looking for a new car seat especially if you travel often for the comfort.

Nice comfy & safe seat a little tough to install on leather seat
By MichiganMommy14
from Michigan
on July 15, 2019
Verified Buyer
I really love all the safety features but it was tough to get it installed with the less than 1 inch of movement on my leather seats in my dodge caravan. I had to recline the bucket seat some to get the blue ball to be in the right zone for rear facing. Took a lot longer than installing my Britax in comparison the base on the britax has grips on bottom that help it not to slide. Overall after several tries and breaks I got it nice and tight and hopefully never have to remove it and re-install! Nice seat, little tricky install
Pros
  • Safe
  • Comfortable
  • Cushiony and padded
Cons
  • Tough to get a tight install using seatbelt on leather seat
Difficult install
By Bsachel
from Buffalo, NY

I received this car seat as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel, but I promise this review is not biased by that. I was very intrigued by this seat's claims to be the only seat I'll ever need to buy again. Since my twins are only 9 months old, we've obviously only used it rear-facing, so that remains to be seen. Here are some pros and cons I actually can give an opinion on...
Pros: so comfy! Love all the padding! Quick navigation quite in the manual makes it really easy to see when you can change modes of install, etc. My babies had only been in their infant carriers before this and they really liked the switch!
Cons: difficult install. Hard to see the recline indicator, and you have to remove the cover to install which is an annoying extra step, esp bc this seat is pretty bulky.
I think this seat is worth it if you have the patience to carefully install correctly...if that will frustrate you too much, I'd suggest choosing a different seat.

Most frustrating car seat
By P R.
from Los Angeles, CA
on May 27, 2019
The first Magellan we received was defective. Customer service was great we were immediately sent a replacement however it was difficult to install and is difficult to tighten/loosen the chest straps. Chest straps will be loose while straps around legs are super tight. Extremely difficult to press red crotch button to release buckles. I have to ask my husband to unbuckle our son as I am not strong enough and even he still struggles with it. I just purchased a britax click tight for our other car and it is so much easier to use and is very securely installed with no movement at all. The police officer couldn't even get the Magellan to move less than 6 inches once installed and they are the professionals. So dissapointed considering the price point.

Straps never tighten enough
By J K.
from Downers Grove, IL 60515
on May 26, 2019
My wife and I bought the Magellan Max due to the totes ease of use magnetic chest clip and the level of comfort that it appeared to offer our daughter.
First cane installation rear-facing which I recommend never to do on a busy day. You need at least an hour for first time installation because 1. You must first try to secure seat with the cars seatbelt. Despite numerous attempts and doing all I could to get it to tighten enough to not move more than an inch, this was not possible. The seat belt method does not secure the car seat enough in both my wife's Nissan Altima and my Audi Q7. 2. Next, the clip method that comes with the car seat was the only method that secured the car seat enough that it did not move. I worry though because this is only up to 35lbs... after that what are we supposed to do?

Adjusting the car seat is relatively easy to recline froward and back, and raising the head rest. Super simple and easy. The biggest down side to this car seat is the straps. They never tighten enough and to get them to the tightening point takes all my strength and effort but even that is not enough. The straps seem to fold over and bunch up, get caught, and never really hold their shape. I worry that due to the loose fitting straps that this car seat is not safe for my child. Also, the magnetic clip can be tricky at times. I worry in an emergency would I be able to get my child unclipped fast enough. Recommend having a tool of sorts in the car (multi tool, knife, or scissors) just in case we are ever faced with a scenario.

Overall,
Installation without seat belt worries me due to weight limits of the included buckle system. Seat belt will never secure this facing forward or back due to design of car seat. Straps tightening/ loosening is a pain... Positives: easy to recline and adjust head rest. Comfy padding.
