This is a great car seat I purchased this for my son when he outgrew his infant carseat. It was very easy to install in the car with the latch system! And it feels very secure in the car. It fits great in a small car as well as my large SUV. I have no trouble taking it in and out of the car although it is very bulky and heavy - but not that big of an innconvience. The only things I do not like about this particular car seat is the fact that it does take up so much room in the car with the drink holder installed as well as the arm rests down! Also it is almost impossible to wash when it gets dirty (and this happens quite alot!). You practically have to take the car seat apart to get in orfer to wash the fabric- which is totally 100 percent machine washable! It has a great 5 point safety harness, and has the front adjustable harness which it great for winter when your child is wearing bulky jackets... This is the 3-1 model so it does accomodate infants to older toddlers! Great value for the money!!
