I love love love this car seat! I feel that my little toddler is completely safe. She is also very comfortable in this seat. It has definitely come in handy on long trips when comfort matters! The only inconvenient thing is that this seat is like a piece of furniture. It is very difficult to move and also time consuming. With that said, it doesn't bother me at all because I feel that it's size is only adding to my daughters safety. We bought a second seat for our other vehicle because we switch out cars often and it was getting to be a bit of a pain to switch out.
