Yes it is a heavy carseat and I usually leave the fitting to my husband as I find isofix a bit tricky, but this pales in to insignificance when I think of how well the carseat did its job when it was needed most.
The very next day we went out and bought another Maxi Cosi Priorifix, and I would never go with any other now I have seen how well it does its job.
The only real drawback is the weight. You will definitely need a helper to babysit if you need to fit it before use as it is very much a two handed job trying to manouvre the seat and support leg into the vehicle without scratching the paintwork.
If you intend to leave the seat in the car then this is the chair for you (although it may leave a dent in your car seat), and when choosing a seat I always go for safety above convenience and I have no doubt that my Baby is very safe in this chair.
Its not the ideal seat to be moving between cars as it is quite heavy but we have no intention of doing that - we'll consider buying the same seat again for our other car if we need to.
Highly recommended choice.
Even worse was the response from the manufacturers (Dorel UK) who we contacted as soon as we discovered this potentially life-threatening damage. Despite the fact that the seat was no more than a few months out of its two year warranty, they insisted that we courier the seat to their service centre in Norwich (at our expense) and then pay them £50 to look at the seat, a process which we were told could take up to four weeks. Obviously, during this time we would be without a car seat; no car journeys for us for a month.
So by all means buy one, but keep an eye on the straps (under the cover, down the back of the seat), be prepared to spend up to £80 getting it fixed, and don't expect anything approaching decent customer service from the manufacturer should something go wrong.
the car seat is very heavy and the height is substantial, so i cannot imagine using this if you need to frequently switch cars where this seat needs to be installed. a few details are missing compared to Britax model that is comparable in price, including:
- head rest (my son's head does wobble side ways a lot when he sleeps and it's not possible to attach a pillow or pads around his head)
- the possibility to fix the bottom clip out of the way (this may not sound important, but it always raises my blood pressure to get this bit out under the toddler's crotch when struggling to put a wiggly, resisting toddler into the car seat)
nevertheless, we are in general quite happy with our car seat. having used a few different car seats on our trip to australia, we realize that the big plus of this product is that it is very easy to recline the car seat when the baby falls asleep - even from the driver's seat or passenger seat.
for parents wondering when to change to front-facing car seat: our son used to scream and howl during even short car journeys in rear-facing car seat. we decided to change the car seat when he was 9 months old and he became much happier with car journeys instantly. we were afraid that it was too early to change from the group 0 seat, but we realized he was very uncomfortable because he was so long/tall.

nice and easy to use. feels solid.
My only gripes are 1) the foot support bar doesn't stay still. It needs some rubber on it or something for grip. Read more
Can be used for normal seat belts or isofox so good for moving between a variety of cars. The reclining feature is a god send and our little one can sleep very comfortably in it.Published on 23 Jun. 2014 by Oli J

This is a really good quality car seat which clips into the isofix child seat fixings. We feel it will give our grandchildren the full support they need.Published on 22 April 2014 by GadgetBryan
I am yet to install and use the car seat but do feel it could probably benefit from some more paddingPublished on 12 April 2014 by Miss. S. L. Collard
