This is a fantastic, durable, well made car seat. It is very solid and does not budge when installed properly. It is very large though and may not fit in a small car but it's large size is great for holding children in a 5 pt harness until they reach the 80 lb mark. The seat cover comes off very easily to be washed, and installation is easy especially with the latch system that it comes with. I did buy a different, lighter weight spare car seat so when we are in a different car we can use that one as the regent is very heavy and not easy to move from one car to another. The straps also don't tangle like others I've had, it has the flexible plastic guides to keep the straps laying flat. There are shoulder pads and a pad for the crotch area as well to make this a comfortable ride, my daughter also has no problem falling asleep in it, highly recommended!
