Very satisfied, only one minor complain
March 1, 2015
This seat is excellent. I've used a number of car seats provided by car rental companies while traveling (various brands), which were flimsy, did not mount to the vehicle securely, and left me feeling less that confident about my child's safety. The Britax Marathon (and Roundabout, FYI), is ROCK SOLID. The mounting system allows nearly zero movement of the seat when tightened down properly, and the metal frame of the seat provides excellent structural support. I would (and have) recommended Britax to our friends/family. I do have one very minor complaint: on the Marathon, there is a white stitched border on the seat cover separating the gray from the black-colored fabric (this is easy to see in the product picture). For some reason, this stitching unravels easily with use of the seat, and "sheds" all over the car. This is certainly worse in areas where our child's shoes rub against the material. Not a reason to ding the review rating, just thought it was worth mentioning.
