Love this seat - No regrets
We bought this seat in august, and bought another a month later for our other vehicle as we love it. It took about a week of getting used to for both us and out ten month old, but by the end of the week we all loved it. The seat is so solid, I feel like no matter what happened this seat would be indestructible. It is nice looking, it doesn't budge an inch, and my daughter is happy and comfy in it. I was worried she wouldn't sleep well in it on the road (as we travel often), but we have had no issues there. The install took a while to figure out, but once we had it, it was a breeze. Second seat took us only about ten minutes to assemble and install in the other car.
We had been contemplating on this versus the diono, and I am so happy we went with this seat. It fits beautifully in both my mazda cx9 and my husbands buick regal. The diono was way too long rear facing, and for whatever reason, our daughter was not a fan.
I saw one review about difficulties getting the baby out, but my only thought is that they must be missing the release lever (it is kind of hidden), as getting her out is no issue at all.
The only thing i don't love is that the crotch strap is rather short. It is not a deal breaker, but I will be ordering a new one when they release them (which apparently they plan to do).
