Impossible to install
January 26, 2024
I got this for my 3rd child after a Keyfit 30 with my first 2. I could not get the base to install securely with the load leg. I tried so many different ways and even had a CPST help. Just wouldn’t work in my car, so beware. I also wasn’t impressed with the ease of use. I sold it and bought a Keyfit35 which I loved.

Over all a solid product. Purchase another maxi for my
Second child. Fabric holds up and is nice. Easy detachment of cover allows for a quick painless wash or clean. Light weight considering and lasts surprisingly long.

We have loved this seat! The base is super easy to install. It gets great safety ratings.

We have also gotten a lot of compliments on the purple color. It's very pretty, and it feels luxurious and plush.

Love this car seat! It’s so light and comfy, my ex-micro-preemie fits in it great. I had the older model of this one for my first, and this one has a better shad e. I use this car seat with the Maxi-Taxi, it’s been a lifesaver.

Good carseat
June 28, 2021
I like the style, fabric, and cushioning. I like how the fabrics wash up with easy removal and replacement.
I don't have experience with other brands to compare, but it seemed heavy. And when my little one was very small (8-10lbs) she seemed to hunch over sitting in the car seat. She grew into it and she seems to sit much more comfortably now. Overall we are happy with the maxi-cosi product and will be continuing with the brand for our big-girl seat.

Good quality but little too small
May 16, 2021
This maxi car seat is pretty good but it is pretty small. My son is only 5 months right now and is about 20 pounds and it is tight. I believe the description says that it fit up to 30 pounds. The quality is pretty good.

Some big hang ups for the price
April 17, 2021
The overall comfort for my infant seems fine - I like the amount of cushion It offers. But there are several [rather large] issues I have with It for the amount I paid.
First, more times than not I will hear the car seat fully click into place AFTER I've already started driving. I always feel confident I've got It locked in only to find out it's not which is scary.
Second, most times It takes two hands for me to get the car seat unlocked from the base. It gets stuck way too often.
Lastly, I got the pure Cosi fabric - I've only used the car seat for 6 months and the fabric is already ragged and snagged all over. My child is not mobile enough for the car seat to look warn.

Canopy need improvement!!
April 5, 2021
I’m a maxi cosi fan. We have three toddler car seats and an infant car seat that I used with all three babies. Got in a car accident and insurance had us buy a new infant car seat so I got this one. I was very excited for the upgraded canopy. But the canopy broke within 1.5 months! My old infant car seat lasted me with two babies and 6 months into the third baby and this one couldn’t do even pull off 2 months.. the canopy would not open and close easy and finally at the bottom when it connects the plastic twisted and broke off completely.. also, the material isn’t great. Catches on everything and started to look older than my very old maxi cosi infant car seat. Besides all that it was so expensive! The canopy needs improvement!

cheaply made and many issues, not worth the money
December 28, 2020
This car seat is not worth the money - it has a junky feel about it. The straps are nearly always stuck and impossible to adjust, your kid will be screaming by the time you are able to work it out.

The latch process that allows you to take the car seat out of the car is also mushy, routinely gets snagged, and doesn't ever fully 'click' in like other car seats, leaving you wondering if it's on there. That function has nearly stopped working completely on ours - meaning we can no longer take it out of the car.

Overall this is an cheaply made car seat that is not worth the high price tag - the kid's grandparents have a Grecco car seat that was less than half the price that does not have these problems.

We haven't used this yet because baby isn't here but shipping was fast. No damage to the box or contents. We noticed the "new item" smell but let it air out for a day and the smell is completely gone. Many mom friends have recommended Maxi Cosi and I'm glad I was able to find it for such a good price here.

Improvements Needed
September 21, 2020
I have been using this seat for over 2 months.
Positives: It has some great safety features. Stability leg, air cushions in the headrest, nicely padded shoulder strap covers.
The seat padding also seems VERY comfortable for baby.

Negatives: The seating Position is too upright for a newborn.
The car seat is a struggle to get in the base. My wife has a chicco and that seats itself into the base with a very audible click. It takes almost no effort to lock into the base as it guides itself into the correct position. The maxi cosi, by comparison can be VERY difficult to get the seat aligned with the base. You actually have to tilt the seat in a more upright position to lock it in the base. There is no way to tell if you are close to being in the right position. It is very frustrating and makes an already too upright position worse. This is no longer an issue when baby had head control.

This could be an excellent car seat with some improvements. In its current state, there are much better options, especially for the price.

Light and comfortable!
September 6, 2020
For an infant car seat, it is light weight and comfy enough that big sister tried it out and doesn’t want to leave it alone! I haven’t used it with baby yet as she will be here in a month but I washed all the padding and it was very easy to take off and put back on! The canopy is a little flimsy, but I knew that, as I had looked at it in a store prior to purchasing. And to be honest, most of the canopies on the other brands aren’t much better. I live in the heat so self wicking fabric is a must! Love maxi cosi products!

Too small

While this infant seat is super soft and looks comfy for my baby it's just not wide enough. My baby is an average size 6 month old and is squeezing her shoulders in. Unfortunately, we have to buy another seat now.

handle gets stuck
June 7, 2020
super cute and enough padding for baby. i love the color way and it’s really light. a few downfalls are that when you bring the handle up or down, it gets stuck on the canopy. i think it’s because there’s a grip part on the handle so it sticks on the canopy so it makes it a little difficult but nothing too crazy. also, the canopy is pretty flimsy when you try to pull all the way so sometimes it’ll be sturdy but sometimes it won’t be. you have to do it a specific way to get it to stay sturdy. other than those two things i love the base with the extra arm and how far the canopy goes once extended.
  • lightweight, stylish, enough cushion, durable, washable, buckle stays up
  • handle gets stuck on canopy, flimsy canopy
Too small
March 15, 2020
I own 2 Pria max for my toddlers. Absolutely love those. Owned a Nuna for them as babies. Decided to stick with the Maxi Cosi for my newest baby. She was born a preemie and is now just over 2 months and her shoulders barely fit in this car seat already. Very disappointed as I will probably have to be purchasing another infant seat that will fit her very soon! Shoulder width is just too small.

Wanted to love this...
March 4, 2020
I wanted to love this! I have 2 of the pria 85 max car seats for my toddlers and they have been amazing! This car seat however doesn't seem to be nearly as cushioned.. it squeaks when I carry it from the styrofoam. The canopy does not stay and pops loose. Not nearly as sturdy as I was expecting after loving the other ones we have...

Nothing special
February 28, 2020
The Canopy is so hard to open and close. You need 2 hads to do it becaude the wire used to hold it up is flimsy and u have to move both ends at the bottom to make it stay. They couldnt even bother to have the marital colored inside the canopy. The matrial is cheap. The extra safty bar that comes with the base is usless. Does not stay properly. Baby sits way to upfront in the set would not recommend for new born. And yes there is plent of room for baby to grow but it narrows to the top so as ur baby grows the shoulders get tighter and tighter . Very uncomfortable for child.

Moves too much when installed
November 29, 2019
When you use the supplied latches to clip into the car seats, you can't tighten the latch belt tight enough to keep the base unit from moving right to left (more than the recommended one inch). We are new first time parents and want to eliminate anything that can lead us to worrying--and sadly this feels unsafe. We've asked several people and we've been told it is installed properly, it just slides too much right to left between the two latches. We are going to the police station tomorrow and if they say it is unsafe, we will return for a full refund.

A fabulous car seat for our preemie
October 26, 2019
I have loved this car seat for our baby from the time she came home from the hospital at just five pounds and on. It's incredibly supportive and easy to adjust as she grows. The infant insert kept her secure and comfortable, even at her smallest. We've found it easy to install in multiple cars, but it did have to be on a side seat in our SUV, as the support leg was too long for the floor in the middle seat. I love how light the car seat is, and the handle makes it easy to tote around in various positions. We have a car seat ready for the next stage, but I plan to keep our baby in the Mico Max Plus until she reaches the max height & weight.

Great Product

Lightweight and functional. Overall a useful car seat!
Just ok.
June 9, 2019
Just ok. The base comes loose from the seatbelt often and I have to constantly reinstall it I even got it installed by certified specialists at the hospital and it is constantly coming loose which scares me. Also, I was unable to buy an additional base for my husbands car and I did not know this until after we already took the product out of the box and threw the box box away. I think they are available now, but back in Feb/ March I couldn't purchase one which was very inconvenient for our situation.

I like the cooling fabric, but the infant insert covers it up and my newborn gets very hot and screams. I am sure that would happen with any car seat though.

I like that it is light weight and has the pop up buckle feature so you don't have to go digging under your baby for the buckle.

great car seat and stroller system
June 2, 2019
We love this car seat! We are first time parents and felt very overwhelmed when we started looking into car seats and strollers. The Maxi Cosi Plus was suggested to us by a family friend and decided to look into the options. We found the car seat easy to install as well as easy to understand the directions for the stroller and additional seat. The stroller frame and wheels are durable for city sidewalks as well as gravel and grass (No getting stuck!) Not only do we love it but more importantly, so does our baby girl! We would definitely recommend this car seat and travel system to any parents!

Sleek safe car seat
January 20, 2019
I was very pleased to receive the Maxi-Cosi Mico Max Plus Infant Car Seat from weeSpring Parent Panel. I love its safety features, especially the stability leg and side impact support. It also looks much classier than many other car seats and I appreciate how easy it is to install/remove the padding. I also like the extendable hood, although it only extends it a couple of inches. It easily snapped into my Maxi-Cosi stroller. Also, although the base is quite heavy, the seat itself is lighter than others at the same price point - something I definitely appreciate with how much I end up carrying this around! The only downside is the base is quite large so may not fit as well in a smaller vehicle.

Safe, Clean but a bit Tight
January 19, 2019
As a parent of a 5 month old boy and 2 older girls, car seat safety is priority. I was given the Maxi-Cosi Mico Max Plus Infant Car Seat to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. The car seat looks nice, has a great canopy that extends very far to protect the baby. Installation of the car seat was easy, there was no movement side to side, although it seemed to have a lot of movement up and down. We were very excited about this new car seat and when we went to use it for the first time, my son was too big for it. He isn't huge but he's a pretty big boy. His shoulders were too snug and he was uncomfortable. At 5 months, he was 17.5 pounds and 27.5 inches. Unfortunately, we were not able to use the car seat! Had we got the car seat when our son was an infant, we would have loved it!

Casy to use and install
January 15, 2019
I received this from the weeSpring Parent Panel.This is an extremely attractive car seat that's clearly well made with a lot of soft padding that creates a comfortable and stable seat for our infant. One of our favorite features is the ergonomics of the handle for carrying-it makes it very easy and comfortable to carry the car seat in and out of the car. It also clips in and out of its base in the car and in and out of the stroller very quickly and easily. The extra long sun canopy is great, too.

Safe and a perfect fit
January 15, 2019
The safety ratings for this car seat is amazing and that was the most important thing to me above looks and whatever else but this car seat has it all. The installation was very smooth and easy. I love that it has the stability leg for the extra protection. The fabric is soft and luxurious for baby's sensitive skin, and it is breathable. The handle is easy to carry and I love that it's curved in design so I can see by baby better. It's not heavy like the other similar car seats. They managed to pack safety in but still be on the lighter side. The large shade is fantastic. I also have the Lila stroller system and it clicks so easily that traveling is a breeze. Thank you weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this brilliant car seat.
