Poor Poor Poor,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britax Prince Forward Facing Group 1 Car Seat (Black Thunder) (Baby Product)
This car seat was an utter disappointment!!
I can't believe it has got such a good rating! It goes to prove that user reviews can be misleading....
This was meant to be a replacement for a Britax Eclipse seat I have had for some time now, but it is worse than the eclipse which I had bought years ago!!
What I hate about this seat
1. It is not compact as it is made out to be, infact it is quite bulky...
2. The quality of the padding seemed poor, it kept creaking and crackling even while I was taking it out of the box!! Don't know how it will cope in a crash!
3. No isofix!!!
4. I've saved the worst for last... The reclining mechanism sucks!!!!! Really, it is impossible to recline it once it is firmly installed in the car! You can't budge it unless you pull the base forward, which is impossible once you have a child in the seat.
Sent back promptly and awaiting a refund.
