This car seat is dependable and the one I have, I've had for 2yr
As for the car seat, I have gone through 2 pregnancies and the first one was in it til recently because my baby, well lets just say he's a big boy for his age (23lbs/1yrs old) and he's only 5lbs less than my daughter. I switched her into another car seat that my other daughter used to use. Bottom line, its been through at least 3 babies and still together. Nothing has ever broke or ripped since I've had it. It is very easy to clean and to take apart. But at the same time, its easy to put back together as long as you remember where each part goes. Sometimes people forget and it can be a little frustrating, especially when you have the baby in the car seat ready to go and he/she is moving around in loose belts or their twisted. That does happen unfortunately. I would recommend this product to my family and friends. I already did actually. They are happy that I told them about it and it was at a good price at the same time.
