I feel as though Car seats are like insurance policies. This car seat is sturdy yet comfortable for our growing toddler. Installation is a breeze if you read your manual and do it accurately. Iím super at ease with my baby in this seat knowing the extra protection will keep her safe. I love this color purple too. Fabric is great quality too. Fantastic purchase. Iím glad we took the time to research and made this selection.

Frustrating Car Seat
September 15, 2020
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.
ProsLooks very luxurious
ConsShoulder straps not comfortable Impossible to tighten Straps not comfortable Fabric starting to pill after only about 2 months of use

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!
ProsSoft Easy to adjust The magnet slider is so easy to use High safety rating Years of use

Beautiful comfortable seat, tricky install
September 11, 2020
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
September 7, 2020
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! :)
ProsAmazingly easy magnetic chest clip! Easy height adjustment. Beautiful fabrics!
ConsUncomfortable 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)
Best UsesOlder child.

I love the magnetic closure! By far my favorite feature I was hesitant after reading some other reviews but I'm so glad we spent a little more and got this one! Once you figure it out I'll never go back to carseat without it! Only complaint is the cupholders are a little small but other than that it washes really well and has held up super well!

Crotch Belt Too Small
August 29, 2020
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.
ProsBeautiful design and fabrics.
ConsCrotch 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.
ProsClips 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.
ConsThe 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!

It's quite big so it needs large space to be assembled in car. but it's okay because I usually sit next to my baby on the back seat. Magnetic chest harness is super easy to use! you should try this model if your baby moves alot!

Love Maxi-Cosi carseats
June 23, 2020
This carseat is giant beast. I have a large van, so I have no problem fitting it in my vehicle. This is my second Maxi-Cosi. I used to swear by Britax, but my experiences with Maxi-Cosi has me sold. The magnetic clasp is a dream come true. Even my 5 year old can not escape it, but I can unlatch it in seconds. I have 6 children, and gave up the infant car seat by number 2. If you are looking for an all in one seat, this is it. Bonus, easy off wash and dry cover!
ProsWashable fabric, sturdy, magnetic latch
ConsSmall buckle between legs

This is the second Maxi Cosi Magellan Max that Iíve purchased through Albee Baby for my sons and I love it. The Car seat is beautiful, well built and has great safety ratings. My husband and I both feel safe putting our children in them. Albee baby always has the best price and when you sign up you get a 20% off coupon code. Shipping was quick as I received the item within a week of purchasing. When I contacted Customer service, they returned my email regarding the tracking the very next day. I highly recommend checking Albee Baby first for your needs when looking to purchase these types of items.
ProsBeautiful & well built with quality materials.
ConsA bit heavy.

Great car seat
June 13, 2020
Car seat is great has a snug fit for my granddaughter and fits my car well. I will say I donít think it would fit in a small car but would in a midsize car - I have a max cosi pria 85 that we bought for my daughters car and itís about the same size as this one. Watch the YouTube video for installation and it will go smoothly
ProsVery Cush and snug
ConsCan be a pain to install - look up the YouTube video for help.

Great car seat at a great price
May 7, 2020
I did a ton of research on convertible car seats and I landed on this one and the Nuna Exec. The specs were so close but the Magellan was half the price, if not more. We bought this because we will be moving from a bucket seat to this type very soon. I will say that installing any car seat is tough. You want everything perfect and correct. The level and indicators on this car seat make it easy to install. I referred to the manual for belt positioning and infant insert options. The features on this car seat is great. The magnetic clip and EZ in and out was a huge selling point. It is tough to tighten when rear facing. I think with practice it will get better. Overall we are very happy with the modern look and features this convertible car seat has to offer. I would recommend this to any family needing something from newborn to 10 years old!

I originally bought this seat because of the magnetic chest clip. I love the chest clip and the pop up straps. This makes life so much easier. It was difficult to get tightened down during install. The crotch buckle is very short. It is also kind of difficult to tighten the straps but not impossible. It has multiple recline positions and fits in my Nissan Pathfinder perfectly. It has its pros and cons but overall itís a great seat. I also have the Maxi Cosi Pria 3-in-1 in my Nissan Altima. It was a much easier install and the straps are easier to tighten. But it doesnít have as many recline positions or the magnetic chest clip. But if you donít care about those extra features itís a great seat.
ProsMultiple recline positions Soft fabric Magnetic chest clip Pop up straps
ConsHard to install Short crotch buckle

The only car seat my child doesn't scream non-stop in.... But I don't think it's safe for her
December 27, 2019
My eight month old absolutely hates car seats. First we tried her older sister's Britax and she didn't like that much better than her uppababy Mesa infant car seat. her car screaming was getting to the point of making herself throw up every time we put her in the car. we wanted a safe but comfortable car seats with multiple reclining positions. this car seat is definitely the most comfortable of any I've felt and I really like the look of it.

based on the reviews, we knew this was going to be a beast to install but it looked like it would be comfortable and we liked all of the positioning options. We figured that there had to be a setting that she didn't hate too terribly badly. to our surprise, installing this in the car wasn't nearly as difficult as people made it out to be. The positions of the latch clips were obnoxious but not terrible considering you won't have to do it frequently. Once installed, we realized that in order to adjust the buckle we needed to take it back out. Make sure you make all adjustments to the crotch buckle and height adjustments before you install the carseat.

Our daughter actually doesn't mind this car seat... However... And this is a big however... We can't get these straps tight enough. I am literally not sure how this car seat hasn't been recalled. I'm a pretty strong woman and my husband is a heavy lifting Marine. The strap issue isn't a strength issue it is a design flaw. The straps keep her restrained but she can get her arm underneath it and in some funky positions so I know they are not tight enough. I can pinch the straps and I also know you're not supposed to be able to do that. the straps will not get any tighter and she is a 20-pound chunky monkey so I wouldn't recommend this car seat for anyone with a child smaller than mine. There are so many strapped comments on different sites about this car seat and the reviewers are not exaggerating! This car seat needs to be recalled and with some minor adjustments to the latch holding area and the strap tightening issue, this could be the best car seat on the market.
ProsComfortable, stylish, cup holders
ConsThe straps won't tighten enough, these straps become twisted easily, the crotch buckle is hard to get to because it's not long enough, not the easiest to install, the latch clips are difficult to get to
Best Usesto put it in a car and never remove it but only for a child about 25 lb or over because I can't get the straps tight enough on my 20 lb baby

Super comfortable and really nice
June 12, 2019
All the inserts would have been great for a newborn but I had an infant car seat and didn't use any of the inserts. I have two of these for my twins and they love them. They are really comfortable, super adjustable and should last me until I don't need any additional seats in the car. The color and material is really quality, it's kind of a heathered black with a solid grey. The magnetic buckle takes a little bit of time to get good at but once you do, it works great. It was really easy to install and the material is machine washable so it's great.

Love this car seat! Way easier to get kiddo in and out! Way better than our graco extend2fit convertible seat. The popped up straps is amazing!!
Only thing I dislike is that the release latch is a little hard to get to for my short fingers and that when the straps are tightened, the chest buckle lifts the straps off her body so they do not lay flat against her.

Great Car Seat!
November 7, 2018
This is the second Maxi-Cosi carseat I've purchased. The quality of this brand is great. They are always supportive with major comfort. My daughter loves her seat. My only complaint is how they hide the latch system inside the seat. It was a pain to get to. And to change the buckle so that my daughter has more room in between her legs was a major pain to do. It took me at least 20 minutes to do it. Other than making the adjustment to her seat in the beginning everything else was simple. Also so if you have a small car this isn't the carseat for you. The way it seats it takes up a lot of room. The seat it self is very big. I call it the lazy boy of car seats. But I don't mind how big it is and I know my daughter is safe and comfortable. Also I love how easy it is to get her in and out of the seat. No more fishing for straps behind her. And the magnetic closure is easy enough for her to do it. But not easily opened by her little hands.
ProsGreat quality Super comfortable Easy in and out Looks great
ConsAdjusting is a pain Very bulky Not for small cars

October 16, 2018
Love this car seat, it feels quite premium. Fabric is super nice quality. I feel like it works better for my 3 year old vs my 1 year old because the sides are lower, and it makes it easy for him to climb in and out of. The straps are nice and sturdy and don't get tangled up like my Graco one does. Installation was a bit tricky but overall, this is a very good car seat.

Worse car seat I ever had to deal it - HATE IT
October 5, 2018
This is by far the worst car seat I have ever had to deal with. It's very expensive and it looks great. Yeah, it just looks great and that's it. The harness is horrendous. It works great as long as there is not a kid in the seat. As soon as the kid is there you can't properly adjust the harness because it gets so hard to pull it and it doesn't matter how much you try to pull to adjust, it still feels loser than the safety standards recommend (you're not supposed to be able to grip the harness). I got this as a replacement for a defective Pria 70 we had. I paid an upgrade fee and got the Magellan Max instead. Big fat mistake. I hate the car seat and was told by customer service that I could not return it without having to pay a restocking fee and shipping fees. I would basically lose money by doing that so I kept it but I hate it. Have I said that enough times yet? I got sick and tired of trying to tighten the harness every time my kid is in the seat, so now I just keep it in the position I need it to be and squeeze my son in without having to adjust it every single time cuz it's too much of a pain.

The extended shoulder straps make getting my daughter in and out of the seat a breeze! The removable/washable cup holders are great as well. Not to mention the beautiful appearance and longevity of the seat, this is truly a winner! Highly reccomend!

Not Comfortable for mom or baby
August 16, 2018
I am so disappointed with this car seat! I purchased it for the ease of use of the buckle system and the stiff shoulder straps so I wouldn't have to mess with losing the straps. So I'm just gonna lay it out there:

1. Installation: its actually extremely easy, after you spend over an hour trying to figure it out with the instructions (completely unclear)... There is no youtube videos from the company either on how to properly do it. Anyways, I figured it out and I hope its correct because there is not video to confirm. The instruction manual is all over the place too...

2. The magnetic chest strap was made to make a one handed unclipping easier but depending on how you press-slide it up, it will either unclip easy or not budge. At times it opens easily and at other times it won't open (I spent 5 minutes trying to figure it out one time and it still didn't open for me). Fro women with long nails, DO NOT BUY! Y will be very disappointed. I wish I got the regular chest strap because this is not working for me.

3. Stiff shoulder straps were made so you wouldn't have to mess with finding the straps. But guess what... the clips that are attached to the harness which clip into the 5 point drop down and you still have to fish for them (this is more annoying than fishing for the straps). They could have included slots where you could stick the clips. I find this car seat so annoying!

4. Baby and mom comfort: The leg straps get soooo tight and the horizontal chest straps are still so loose , my DD cries when we tighten her down in this seat and no matter how tight we get the straps, the chest straps are loose and the leg straps are ridiculously tight (like cutting off her circulation). The straps are also extremely hard to tighten down for mom.

Overall, I do not recommend this stroller due to lack of ease-of-use and I don't have peace-of-mind when putting my child in the seat because I don't feel like she's tight in the seat (like they teach you at the hospital and ALL instruction videos). I am so frustrated with this.

What everyone wants in a car seat easy to install and use!
July 16, 2018
This car seat is great! It is easy to install and once installed I can adjust for my child's growth without taking the car seat out. Also the back cover helps to make the straps all move smoothly whether tightening or loosening. It is definitely engineered with the parent in mind with the shoulder straps and crotch strap that stay out to the side so I am no longer digging underneath my son for straps. I couldn't be happier with this car seat and will be using it for many years since it can adjust to a booster so easily!
