Won awards, but serious flaws.
on 18 July 2015
Bought this car seat as it had great reviews, and was only one of a handful in this price range with isofix.
However, after installing it for a long journey, it became quickly apparent that it has more than a couple of serious failings.
Two small flaws - the material is a dirt magnet, already looking worse after one day than the old car seat did after a year. The speakers are next to useless, especially when combined with a device which is already noise limited.
The big flaw - the seat does not recline at all, and the head rest is not adjustable in any meaningful way (it pumps up/deflates, but still remains in the same place). As such, as soon as my little one falls asleep, she slumps forwards. Without a five point harness, this means that her head and torso slump forwards, out of the side protection zone, and into a dangerous position. If the seat didn't look such a mess after a week of outings, I would probably return it.
