I think that this is a great car seat. It is easy to use and very user friendly. The anti rebound bar is a nice feature to have, and makes me feel that it is safer than other car seats. I love that it has built in lock offs. Another nice feature is the really plush infant padding. I used this carseat from birth with my second daughter. I don't like to use infant carriers, so when I was looking for a seat that would fit a newborn, this one definitely fit the bill. We used it with our newborn for sometime, and now we use it forward facing for my older daughter who is three in my husband's car. Its actually easier to install forward facing than it is to install rearfacing. It is a great carseat that will last a long time for multiple ages. I really do recommend it. Ease of Installation Built in lock offs make it so easy! Child's Comfort Nice plush seat. Support and Safety The antirebound bar is a great safety feature. Durability Has held up well the last 3 years.
