We love this car seat. We have had it for over a year and have not had any problems. The car seat is very spacious and is fits nicely in our cars. We have an Accord and a VW CC. We have not had any difficulties in installing the car seat, although getting the straps in the right place takes some work. The harness is very easy to use and we love the fact that we can loosen it with one hand. We also love the four position recline. It is very easy to recline from the front seat. We have used the car seat in the rear and forward facing positions. Overall, it is a great product. We currently own four maxi cosi priori car seats (one for each of our cars and the others for relatives). They have great safety ratings and this website offers the cheapest prices by far!
