We purchased this car seat for a second car, we already have the Mickey Mouse covered one in a Beetle, it's a great product that's easy to assemble. However the instructions could be better. Once your child gets older the back can be removed and it becomes a booster seat, so unless it gets trashed it should last you until the child no longer needs additional seating. We've fitted this in our 2008 Mondeo Estate and there's still room for two average size people to sit in the back. Overall though the quality is good and we look forward to many safe miles of motoring.
