Overall I'm happy
October 17, 2014
I just bought this for my son for my car. I wanted a seat that would be relatively easy to install so I wouldn't have to decide if I really wanted to take the seat out for a night out with friends, etc. Overall I'm happy with the seat. Even though the click tight mechanism is easy, there is a slight learning curve. Once you do it a couple time though and learn the tricks, it's pretty easy to install. However, it is a fairly heavy seat. Definitely heavier than our G4 Boulevard, so I'm not sure it would be the best seat for a grandparent or caregiver that can't lift heavy objects easily.
ProsEasy seat to get a great install once you get the hang of it, the sides aren't too high so I can easily lift my son in and out, the straps are nice and don't get too twisty
ConsThere is a bit of learning curve. It took me a couple tries to realize that I have to unlatch the seatbelt to be able to turn the click tight button to release the seat. I also had to learn that I can't lock the seat belt tight before closing the seat or the seat won't shut.
Best UsesEveryday use, caregiver seat (assuming they can lift it)
