We have switched to this safety seat for about a year and a half, which not only meets the requirements of lying down as a baby, but also meets the requirements of sitting. And very easy to disassemble for cleaning

I absolutely loved this car seat

But my one year old can now end the chest strap and pop it open so he then tries to work his legs out of his seat and we have to pull over and get him situated again. It's just not safe for us to keep him in here I wish I knew what other seats are highly recommended. I even tried looking on here to get the chest piece replaced but I can't seem to find anything.

I love that this car seat is so versatile! We use this as a second car seat currently in my fianc?ís car as we primarily travel in mine while he is still using an infant car seat. I love that we were able to use this since birth and it will continue to grow with our son. This will be our primary car seat once he outgrows the infant carrier. We most likely will purchase a second!

Love it but....
By Jersey M.

So we changed to the maxi cosi from the cybex. Our son is a big guy and had outgrown the Cybex which we absolutely loved, but it wasn't washable so it was a nightmare. We love the maxi cosi but i've had to do
a number of claims for ours because the harness strap doesn't full
extend in or out so it's super uncomfortable for our son. But we were told that it does, well
lies it doesn't it gets to
about 5" in and that's it,
it won't budge!! Kids are all built differently soo making it comfortable for our son is just not possible. Also the chest strap my son is able to bend it and it pops open, how is this even possible!!! His grandmother can't get it open but he does??? Our problem is that this seat is the only one on the market that has the weight max we need for him! So we're stuck!!

Plush car seat!
By 1st M.

Overall I love it. The look and the softness is wonderful. I am a very petite gal and was able to easily install into my compact SUV. Though I cheated and watched a few videos on YouTube. It was is a bit heavy, but I wasn't expecting it to be lightweight either. I was able to carry it from my house to my car. It does take up some of the space of the middle seat, not recommended for smaller vehicles if someone needs to sit in the middle. The quick magnetic chest clip that springs up is what sold me over the Britax or Graco. My lil girl (10 months and 19 pounds) is crafty and I do not want her unbuckling herself. The crotch buckle is short, so clipping her into the seat at night even with the overhead light was bit challenging. So I pulled the buckle out of the cover which made it a tad easier (see photo). Unclipping the crotch buckle is a bit hard too. Sometimes it pops right out and other times I really have to push hard, which kind of defeats the point of the quick unclipping of the chest clip feature. Overall she and I are happy with the Magellan Max.

SAFE, Heavy-duty, Quality, and COMFORTABLE seat!
By Sierra J.
from Biloxi, MS
on February 7, 2021
After my son turned 6 months, he had already grew out of his Britax infant seat because of how narrow the seat was and how chunky of a baby he was. I researched for a LONG time about different convertible car seats that way I wouldn't have to buy another car seat for him (unless the seat experiences a car accident of course). This seat is by far the best quality and SAFE car seat I could find. And THE FEATURES! The straps and buckle that automatically spring open are the best! No more hassling with trying to get straps out from under the baby! It also is so much more CONVERTIBLE than any other seat I could find. There are so many different height settings for the headrest and side pieces, and the recline keeps the baby at the correct position. Now, one thing about this seat: it's HEAVY, which is a con when taking it in and out of the car, but I would rather have a heavy seat if my child was in it and got in a car accident. I don't see the weight of this seat as a con, but more of a necessary evil. You can feel the quality of the seat both through its structure, design, and fabrics/padding. My son is so comfortable in this seat and sleeps so well in it! The extra head piece that comes with it keeps his head from falling to the side too far, and the recline keeps his head from falling forward. Now, cleaning this seat is a CHORE. Taking the fabrics off and putting them back on is complicated. I definitely recommend watching the video to help! It's very time consuming, so plan to spend a couple hours just taking it apart and putting it back together. The fabrics are machine washable and dryable, though I don't dry them to keep them lasting longer. Cleaning the plastic of the seat is also difficult because of all the nooks and hard-to-reach places on the seat. I definitely recommend using a toothbrush to get in them. The cup holders are removable and are dish washer safe too! Overall, this seat is safe for my child and will last the 10 years that it takes to expire!

Buckle is so short, but great seat
By Mary

Great seat, my 1 year finally stopped crying in the car seat. He hated it and it was torture driving anywhere with him. We had him try out a few at the store and he liked this one but not spending the 450$ itís worth in all black. This sale price made it feel better about buying it. The straps and chest clip make is sooo easy to use. The only thing thatís hard is the crotch buckle. Itís pretty short even in you move it to the next slot. You have to buckle pretty close to their thighs and that makes it hard.
  • Comfy, reclines, easy to install, easy chest clip
  • Buckle is really short too close to crotch

Hard to tighten

I am not thrilled with this car seat. It comes with tons of pillows and is adjustable etc but itís impossible to tighten enough to make it safe. Iíve removed all the extra cushions trying to reduce the amount of friction and itís still hard. My biggest complaint about our older sons car seat was that it was hard to tighten so I tried a new brand. Disappointed. It looks nice but safety is most important.
  • Adjustable. Comfortable. Looks nice.
  • Very hard to tighten.

Our son is so happy and comfortable in this car seat! He was nearing the size restrictions in his infant seat and it was time for a ďglow-upĒ. We LOVE that we can wash the cover, because...toddlers! The safety ratings make us feel secure in our decision on how to best protect the most important person in our life. The quick clip harness is so easy to use and the loosening and tightening strap moves with ease.

  • - Comfortable
  • - Easy to wash
  • - Easy to adjust harness
  • - Difficult to install - mostly because of how manual is written. Read manual before even attempting to bring it to your car!
  • The directions for installation are a bit confusing. We eventually got it figured out after walking away to sit down and fully read the entire book, before squishing ourselves back into the backseat of our car.
  • Honestly, the instruction manual feels like this:
  • Step 1: bake the cake
  • Step 2: pour the batter in the pan
  • Step 3: grease the pan
  • Step 4: add the flour, sugar, eggs to a bowl and mix

We have another Maxi-Cosi (Pria 85) and this is definitely an upgrade. Easier to get in and out and materials seems better. Happy with the purchase.
  • Sturdy and easy in and out
  • Latch storage and different ways of installation
  • Fabric material feels comfortable and can be removed/washed.
  • Should last a long time with a higher maximum weight/height allowance
Best Uses
  • Daily use as primary or secondary car seat.
  • Weight: You would not want to travel with this seat
  • Price: Probably the most expensive Maxi-Cosi model?

Frustrating Car Seat
By Libby
from WI
on September 15, 2020
Verified Buyer
I wanted to love this car seat and initially thought that we just didn't have the fit quite right and it would be get better over time as we got used to it. I thought for sure, considering the price, this would be a super nice car seat.
The installation is fine, sort of annoying that you have to take you the cup holder and remove the seat cushion, but not a big deal. Once its installed, you're fine, it isn't meant to be taken in and out of the car.

The issue is that it is impossible to get the straps secured correctly. No matter how hard you pull, tighten, adjust, etc., the chest strap is not secure enough. The leg straps, however, get so tight they leave indentation marks on his legs.
I've watched all the Youtube videos and read everything I could find online about trying to get the fit right and I'm so disappointed. We purchased this right before the pandemic started, so we didn't install it right away since we were home all the time. Now that we're using, I'm passed the return window and stuck with a very expensive car seat that isn't safe.
  • Looks very luxurious
  • Shoulder straps not comfortable
  • Impossible to tighten
  • Straps not comfortable

After much searching, we decided on this carseat for our 5 month old. BEST CARSEAT EVER. I adjusted and installed it myself and it was soo user friendly. Its soft, its plush, the baby is so cozy he always falls asleep in the car. ( Previously leaving in the car was dreadful, he would cry after about 10mins of driving, i was so nervous to take him out) Now we just go on rides for the fun of it! He's safe, secure, and comfy so Mommy is happy!

Beautiful comfortable seat, tricky install
By Stephanie

Fits great in my Honda Pilot. Beautiful seat and my son is comfortable in it. Maxi Cosi has wonderful customer service to walk through installation via video call. A little tricky getting the harness tight around the hips, but becoming easier.

Tip- to tighten the tether pull a little bit at a time straight out, not up or towards the baby, and continue to pull excess slack from the chest to get the most secure fit and secure the Velcro after you do the final pinch test.
*Almost* a Great Seat
By Deborah

on September 7, 2020
Verified Buyer
I was pretty disappointed in the design of this seat because we have owned other Maxi Cosi seats in the past that were easy to use. The install for this seat is silly in that you have to pull the fabric *off the bottom of the seat* in order to install it rear-facing. (They have fixed this issue in their latest version by installing a zipper in the bottom of the seat.) The main reason we returned this seat, however, is that our tall 9 month-old seemed very uncomfortable when buckled in properly, with rough, non-skid padding on the underside of the shoulder straps. Even after adjusting the height and depth, she was still quite uncomfortable, and screamed to get out. (By contrast, she loves her Cybex Aton infant seat. Never complains, just smiles when we put her in.) This seat may work fine for an older child, and I must say the magnetic chest clip is FABULOUS! More companies should incorporate this feature in the future! :)
  • Amazingly easy magnetic chest clip!
  • Easy height adjustment.
  • Beautiful fabrics!
Best Uses
  • Older child.
  • Uncomfortable shoulder straps.
  • Difficult install.
  • Overall awkward seating and strapping position?like they are strapped *onto* the seat instead of into it.
  • Heavy!! (but this prob makes it safer)

Crotch Belt Too Small
By Allie G.
from Connecticut
on August 29, 2020
Verified Buyer
This would be a 5 star seat if not for the poor design of the crotch buckle. It is far too short. I wish I had seen reviews warning about this before a huge purchase. The buckle is so short the the straps over the childís legs dig in leaving red marks from even a short ride. Itís definitely not the size of the child thatís the issue either, as he is only 20lbs. I have reached out to customer service through Maci Cosi about this issue and have yet to hear back. Based on other reviews I have seen, it seems like there is not much to be done. I guess we have wasted a big amount of money. Purchased the Nuba RAVA instead, absolutely love it.
  • Beautiful design and fabrics.
  • Crotch buckle too small so makes straps cut into child?s legs.

This car seat is awesome! We had a Maxi Cosi Magellan and wanted a second and accidentally ordered the Max. We loved the Magellan (hence ordering another), but this one makes all of the things more plush and easier. Also, after dealing with customer service, I will never buy from another site. Albeebaby is fantastic.
  • Clips are easy.
  • Cushions wash well.
  • Many different pillow positions and options.
  • The chest clip on this is so fast!
  • It looks great in our car.
  • The bottom clip can be sticky if you?re not used to using it. My mom has trouble.
  • If there was a magnet or something to hold the straps back, this would be perfect!
