My husband and I were desperate to find a seat that would fit in the back of his Porsche 911.  This is not a car that we driver frequently, more like a weekend joy ride we take sometimes...but my 3.5 year old son is obsessed with it!  He was so sad when we could not bring him along on our little drives because no seat would fit in the back.  Finally we read about this seat, and lo and behold, it fit!  He loves it!  He's a big 3 - 40 pounds and 42 inches..so I don't know that all 3 year olds would benefit.  But if your child is large enough for the specifications, don't hesitate to buy this seat.  It is totally comfortable and very sporty looking.  Everywhere we take the Porsche, people ask us where we found such a cool seat.  It is a godsend for a family that is looking a safe seat to put in the back of a little sports car for occasional family fun drives!

We have a Britax Marathon and love it.  We thought the next logical step would be the Britax Parkway Booster Car Seat.  We were not nearly as pleased with it.  I like the side cushions it offers, and it does seem safer than a lot of car seats. You know there is a but coming, right?  The styrofoam, which is an essential part of the car seat, has broken on both sides with very little cause.  I have been most disappointed.  Our Britax Marathon has styrofoam as well, but has not broken at all in four years.  The Britax Parkway Booster Car Seat had broken on both sides within six months. I pay more for Britax, because I expect more from Britax.  I did not receive more here.  The Britax Parkway Booster Car Seat does not feel as safe now that we have taped it back together.  I thought maybe it was just me, but I happened to see another one just like ours the other day at a consignment shop and it was broken in exactly the same place. I would look else where for a booster seat.

    We purchased this for our second car. We have only used Britax for our carseats and my son LOVES this. So comfortable, easy to take the back off when/if needed, and easy to move and adjust. Would recommend!

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    This improvement was ordered, when the son of my younger brother was a little. I have it. For nine months, and I was very happy with it, but he began to tear the page My nephew was about the size or weight limit of the booster seat, but layers on both sides began to tear and shows a piece of cloth and styrofoam. I called the company and they offered it free to substitute including shipping. Hem in the back seat with the outside hand sewn and use it for a few days until the replacement to arrive and have no problems there. I think it's my fault be amplified through all the plant but other than that, it is not to be causing problems. I had a seat parts and have no problem out of it. The back of the rocket will not get a little high for my taste. I do not like that this improvement also comes with a cup holder. Were the cup holders are a must for me when choosing seats because my SUV is not as cup holders for rear seats. I always need an extra cup holder for a cup or bottle. The seat is easy to buckle and my nephew can loop the same if the seat is used. I always check, but it's nice to have a friendly design, is very suitable for children. Easy to install, it is easy to install, but the back is a little high. Rest of the child, I have no complaints. Support and safety in the first place have my seat for the attack, but the company has free replacement seat. Customer Service. And ease of use is very easy to use, but it did not take a few minutes to install the first time because of the altitude. I like the design of the titleholder Double Cup championship. Only my fault with this office is how high the backrest. I could easily with a seat that is 6 inches shorter. Sustainability was the first time for me that I sewed. The company replaced the seat though! I only question is whether the second seat keeps waiting.

    Good booster seat

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    The seat is well padded and my 6 yr old, 45 lb child is comfortable in it. It is easy to install and feels like it is made out of quality materials. The seat is narrow enough that we can fit 3 kids in car seats across in our vehicle. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

    Great for those that are too big for car seats.

    By 

    from Liberty, KY

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    As grand parents we like to have a variety of car seats around for when we're taking care of our grand children and traveling with them in the car. We bought this brand for its price point as well as layout or design. It was exactly what we needed as a car booster seat for those children who had outgrown their car seats. It works very well and keeps the little ones safely snugged into their seats.

    Ease of Installation
    It's even easier to install that most baby car seats! It just straps and hooks in using your own car's seat belt system. Very easy to move from car to car when needed.

    Child's Comfort
    No real complaints yet, other than being belted in and confined for safety. Children have good arm movement on their sides. Their heads are buffered well and even with the side padding, they can still turn their heads and see adequately so that they don't get bored.

    Support and Safety
    We like the padding and design. We like the extra padding and side panels to buffer the children's heads in case of an accident.

    Design
    Their backs are comfortably supported. We like that there are no cumbersome arm rests to get in the way, and that the children have free range movement with their arms. Helps them not to feel so confined while strapped in.

    Durability
    Lots of different grand kids are using it in our care, and it's lasting well. Easy to wipe clean, too.

    This booster is a little bulky and it ripped on the side.

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    I ordered this booster when my nephew was a bit younger. I used it for about nine months and was very happy with it but it began to rip on the side. My nephew was no where near the height or weight limit for the booster seat but the seams on both sides started to tear and pieces of cloth and Styrofoam were exposed. I actually called the company and they offered to replace it for free including the shipping.

    I hand stitched the seat back with an outside hem and used it for a couple more days until the replacement arrived and haven't had any issues since. I think my particular booster must have had a thread defect from the factory but other than that, it's not caused any issues. I got my replacement seat and haven't had any trouble out of it.

    The back of the booster does go up a bit high for my liking. I do love that this booster also comes with cup holder. Cup holders have became a must for me when choosing seats because my SUV doesn't have backseat cup holders. I always need an extra cup holder for a sip cup or bottle.

    The seat is easy to buckle and my nephew can buckle himself in when he uses the seat. I always double check but it's nice that it has a very kid friendly design.

    Ease of Installation
    It's easy to install but the back goes up a bit high.

    Child's Comfort
    I haven't had any complaints.

    Support and Safety
    My first seat had a blow out but the company actually replaced the seat for free. Great customer service.

    Ease of Use
    It's very easy to use, but it did take a few minutes to install the first time because of the height.

    Design
    I love the dual cup holders. My only fault with this seat is how high the back of the seat is. I could easily use a seat that is 6 inches shorter.

    Durability
    My first seat had a blow out that I stitched up. The company replaced the seat though! I am just waiting to see if my second seat holds up.

    Safety and ease all in one

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    Not only is this booster seat easy to install it is also light which makes getting it from car to car a breeze when grandma takes my five year old for the night or a special fast food run. The high back that lets the seat belt loop through the guide gives me the comfort and added security that I need to feel like my child is safe. I also like how easy it is to remove the seat cover for washing and how easy this booster seat was to put together. Out of the box to in the van was less then five minutes.

    Ease of Installation
    Very easy installation all you need to do is guide the shoulder strap through the latch and then it works like a normal seat belt.

    Child's Comfort
    I have not heard him complain about it and it seems to be easy for him to fall asleep in so I am going to say it is very comfortable.

    Support and Safety
    The high back makes it very easy to loop the seat belt though the guide at the top of the booster seat and it gives the proper support for the back. It also is the proper support for the legs too.

    Ease of Use
    Very easy to use especially since it is just like using a normal seat belt and it keeps the shoulder strap at a lower level which is very comfortable.

    Design
    The design is perfect and it offers a good look for my van.

    Durability
    This is a very durable product. we have taken it out and moved it to many different cars airplanes and even on a boat and we have never had an issue with it holding up.

    Easy to use

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    Easy to use and you can put it in the car buckle your child up and go without the hassle of the convertible seats it's very durable

    Ease of Installation
    All you have to do is wrap the lap belt over your child and buckle it in there's no putting the seat belt through the back and pulling to make sure it's safe and sound

    Child's Comfort
    After a while there comes the wear and tear the cushion wears out so you would have to buy another one

    Support and Safety
    Support is there only because of the seat belt and in some cases they have booster seats with the straps

    Ease of Use
    You can let your child climb in and strap the lap belt around them as you would yourself nothing really to it and there are cup holders for when you and the family go out to eat you don't have to reach back there to hand them their cup anymore

    Design
    I give the design a nine because it's basic but yet can handle any spill with the material

    Durability
    It's comfortable for my daughter to fall asleep in and I don't have to worry about her neck hanging down

    Every ride is safe with the Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat.

    By 

    from Fort Worth, Texas

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    Overall I give this Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat a 9. My husband and I purchased this booster seat for my daughter when she transitioned from her infant car seat to a booster seat. Right off top this booster seat was the one that kept our attention the longest. it was a bit pricey but it had all of the features we were looking for and it just seemed to be the perfect Booster Car Seat for us. We looked at a few booster seats but still kept coming back to the Bitrax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat. Some of the features that stood out for my husband and I were the padded arm rest, the cup holders, and the high cushiony back that the booster car seat had. The down side to this booster car seat was the fact that it is wide in width and takes a nice chunk of space in our backseat. Luckily we only have one child and didn't have to worry to much with how much space was left in the backseat after installing the booster car seat. The installation of this booster seat was so simple. It was easily moved from car to car as needed and it is light weight so it's easy for me to carry. Although I love the high cushioned back on this booster seat it's not very comfortable when the child falls asleep during a car ride. It doesn't have a lot of head support, but these small details outweigh the benefits of this Bitrax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat.

    Britax Booster

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    This booster has been good to our family. My daughter can ride safely in the car, however I don't recommend it for long trips if your child sleeps in the car.

    Ease of Installation
    There really is not anything too complicated about installing this car seat. It goes across the top and over the child like a regular seat belt in the car would.

    Child's Comfort
    The seat is perfect for short trips. For instance going to run errands nearby or taking the kids to school. I would not recommend it for trips where you will be traveling long distance. If your kid falls asleep he or she will flop all over the place and can not sleep while in this seat. My daughter has banged her head numerous times after falling asleep because the two supports on the side do not hold her head.

    Ease of Use
    This car seat is very versatile if you will be switching cars. On days I take my daughter to school and my husband or someone else will pick her up there is no hassle to take the seat out of one car and transfer it to another.

    Design
    It has a very simple design that mimics sitting in a regular seat in the car.

    Durability
    We have had this seat for quite some time and it has been very durable so far.

    Amazing

    Comments about Britax Parkway SG Booster Car Seat:

    I love this booster seat! It made me feel more comfortable transitioning from the 5 point harness to a booster. You still get great side impact protection, and the belt attachment keeps your child safe from sliding under the seat belt in an accident. It's also slimmer than other boosters I've seen and light weight. This booster seat can also accommodate tall children which is a plus!

    Child's Comfort
    My daughter never complains about her seat and falls asleep in it easily.
