Love Britax
We have owned numerous Britax car seats over the past 8ish years and they certainly do not disappoint. We own a Chevy Traverse and this seat fits perfectly in it. It's not obnoxiously large when installed in the vehicle and has a sturdy (metal) frame.
ProsPerfect size with room to grow
ConsBe careful installing not to tangle the latch belt when tightening - it will take you a while to untangle it if you do ;)

Great Seat!
We got this as a second car seat for my sister to use. It's better priced than the clicktight and not as easy to install, but still the latch system works great. If you're not planning on moving the seat in and out of the car then I would definitely get this seat. Cover is easy to remove and wash.

Great Car seat!
We bought this car seat as a second to the exact one we already have just a different cover. I like this one better because it seems to breath better. My daughter has not been sweating on her back like she was before.

Love Britax
I bought this seat for our second son. I've been a Britax customer for 5 years now. I love the updated model since the 2012 version. I found this seat on sale and Albeebaby shipped it out very quickly! I received it within 4 days! I totally recommend Britax and Albeebaby to anyone.

Spacious, comfortable, easy to buckle
I bought this seat after using a maxi cost mico car seat. My child was born just above 7 pounds and pretty long baby and the rear facing small cozy car seat felt very small for her (she was 50th percentile weight, 98th hight). We used it till she was 7 months old and then (thank god!) replaced it for the Britax Marathon, first rear facing and later on forward facing. We felt an immediate change in her comfort and behavior during car rides. In retrospective, I should have switched earlier. We liked it so much we bought a second one for my mother inlay's cat. Highly recommended. We had a toyota Rav4 and now Toyota Auris (smaller car) and we have only 1 seat installed. Not sure how it fits in a smaller car or with an additional seat next to it.
Consa bit wide maybe??

Good car seat but hard with a small car
I haven't had this long so it's hard to say completely yet. The car seat is nice, well put together, and nice covering and straps. However, it is hard to install with a small car .I have a Mazda sedan if that gives you an idea. I had to put it behind the passenger seat, take the head rest off to achieve appropriate recline with rear facing for my 1 year old, it doesn't hang off the edge of the seat and the width of it doesn't seem to take up too much room, but who ever sits in the passenger seat will have to scoot too close to the dash. Yesterday my son fell asleep on the drive in it, and his little head looked really uncomfortable but I suppose it's the way with a convertible car seat vs the infant seats. It is safe though and that's what matters most. I researched for a good month or 2 before I chose. And Britax is up there with the best crash test ratings.
ProsComfortable Good safety measures

Great car seat
This is a good car seat. It took a couple tries for my husband to get it in properly. It was not reclining enough on the center seat of my Honda CR-V so we moved it to behind the driver so it would be easier for me to get her in and out. Once she's forward facing we'll put her back in the center. I also don't like the pad she has to sit on until 22 lbs, my 15 month old is a peanut and it doesn't seem like she's positioned properly while strapped in, but I haven't used a convertible car seat in years so I know designs have changed. I love how easy it is to adjust the shoulder strap height, no more removing straps and rethreading. I also like the safety pad for the crotch strap and chest clip guard that keeps it from sliding up and down too much.

Great Seat!
We installed the seat over a week fits great in the back of our pathfinder. And actually provides more leg room than the baby seat we had previously. It took a little while to get the seat set where the line was level...but after figuring it out we have been good to go! And it securely fastens to the seat with the anchor locks. Which are so great!! Love the look and feel (not super soft...but feels like maybe it holds up to stains better!).

Better than expected!
We love our new Marathon and you can't beat the prices from Albee baby. We were looking for a second car option carseat but didn't want to spend quite at much as our Britax Boulevard that we got for our main vehicle. I couldn't be happier with the Marathon. Our 15 month, 35in, 29 lb boy loves it. It has a lot of room for him to be comfortable, piece-of-cake installation and he never gets sweaty like he did in his original B-Safe 35 elite infant carrier.

Great Car Seat
I love this car seat! I already have 2 of the same in different patterns for my oldest child. It's very easy to install, easy to clean, and most importantly keeps my child safe. My children are in the 99% for height and this seat is comfortable for them (ages 3 and 11 months) and they are both very slender. I highly recommend this seat.

Having had a cheaper car seat, you get what you pay for with the Marathon
This carseat is easy to install, comfortable for my 40 lb 3 year old son, and it reclines the slightest bit for him so he can be comfortable while front facing. I highly recommend.
ProsEasy to clean fabric, comfortable neoprene-like fabric for the straps and crotch strap
ConsMcCoy fabric is slightly rough to the touch, but elegant and classy looking

I purchased this for my 10 month old son as he was outgrowing his infant car seat. It was very simple to install.

This is a great car seat, but the button you press to lengthen the chest straps is a little hidden.

The seat was delivered quickly.

This is our first Britax and we absolutely love it. It's easy to move in and out of the car (s) and easy to recline, buckle, and clean. It's padded and comfortable for our baby and is reinforced with a steel frame, so that makes me feel like our baby is even safer. The price point was also excellent for families on a budget.

Love the marathon. I really was thinking of getting something more towards a booster and giving our old one to the baby but love how safe and secure this is for my kids. We previously had the onyx fabric but felt it was worth getting this pattern at a lower cost. The fabric is a little course but overall it is such a great sturdy seat. So glad I got this again.

I'm in love with this car seat! My son is only 5 months old, but he's never been a fan on the infant seat. He's small for his age, but he always seemed squished. This seat gives him the room he craves, but it's still safe for him (14lbs) to be in! He also loves being up a little higher so he can see out the window more now. It was easy to install with the LATCH system, too. And even at its size, it's FAA compliant!

Britax Is the Best!
Fast Shipping! We ordered two of these car seats, one for our baby transitioning out of the infant carrier, and the other for our three year old. We installed one rear facing and the other forward facing in our GMC Sierra with ease. They tighten down with no movement very easily using the latch system. The straps adjust easily and it is easy to make adjustments to the shoulder height. The fabric is durable. Both kids are comfortable and safe!

This item was ordered for a friend's daughter who is having her first child. Safety was the most essential requirement. After a thorough review, this car seat was chosen. It is impressive because, in addition to safety, the car seat is constructed without the use of toxins. We're all crazy for the kiwi (bright green) color as well. We're also happy the car seat arrived so quickly. Customer Service was extremely helpful and courteous in providing us with the delivery date, as we had misplaced the order confirmation information.

So far I love this car seat. It is a nice size and my baby seems to like it better than the infant carrier seat. I will keep you posted on how well she does with it. I love the fabric. It's easy to keep clean. It's also very soft! I love the Velcro that holds the straps out of the way to put the baby in but still keeps them handy so you aren't digging for the straps under the baby. That is by far my favorite "small" thing about this seat!

Easy loading!
My daughter and son-in-law purchased a chicco keyfit 30 and needed an additional car seat for their second car. Since they were not crazy about the Chicco, we explored different options and decided that I would give them this one as a Christmas gift-- to be opened early. They did have some trouble adjusting the straps so that they would fit properly, but eventually figured it out. They like it so much more than the Chicco. The design is much more open and easier to maneuver my grand daughter into and out of it and she does not feel quite as confined. Personally, I prefer the Diono that I use, but this one was a steal at the price. Very happy with the purchase.

We bought one for our daughter when she was 2 months old, she hated her carrier carsea . But as soon as we got her britax in car rides became so pleasant. So when we found out we were expecting baby #2 we decided to have a Britax on hand. The price on this sight was the best we have seen for this style. We love this style because it cleans off so easy, and will not show dirt or stains easily, considering kids can be messy. Our item shipped fast and we received it without any problrms.

I bought 2, which brings my total of Britax Marathon's to 4. The Jet set color was a great bargain and I love the seat. I saw no reason to get another model when we had the second child. I think they easy to use and provide great protection. I see no reason to spend more money on the other brands. They fit perfectly in both hour vehicles and one of them is a Ram 1500 Quad cab with a shortened passenger compartment.

This has the features I need
I like this design better than than the one that feeds under the seat then clicks, because numerous times I find it handy to unlatch and carry sleeping baby and car seat in for continued nap. Also this seat is light enough to do that with. I like the quality of the buckle mechanism. I tried another brand and returned it. I do not miss the cup holder feature. This stream lined design is much easier for getting baby in and out. I am the grandma and have only used this seat in forward facing position so far.

This car seat has been even better than expected. I knew it would be a great seat, but my daughter is so much more comfortable in this seat than the infant seat. Another plus is the size.

We have an older marathon and were impressed with the updates on this model. We love the back belt adjuster that you can adjust for height by a simple click and pull instead of taking belts in and out of the back of the car seat. The new seat base is nice because you can set the seat on the ground without it toppling over. Our baby is 19 lbs, 3 months old and the infant seat rest works great. Finally, installation is quick and simple especially if you have a latch system in your vehicle. You can't beat Albee baby's prices or the fact that britax has the same price on this seat that they did roughly 10 years ago.

Great car seat
The directions for installing the car seat were actually quite easy to follow and the seat seems to be well-made overall. We have a Prius, and it fits just fine in the back seat, with the only issue being that because the rear Prius doors are lower profile, there's not much clearance for getting the little one in and out. (We installed it rear-facing -- our daughter is under 22 pounds.) But we've had it installed for just over a week and I'm already used to it and finding that easier. The car seat was delivered in two days, too! We originally chose this car seat because Britax has an excellent safety reputation and seems to do a better job overall not using untested fire retardant chemicals, but it's also just a great car seat. I can imagine it will hold up well for a number of years.

Great car seat. Very sturdy, and is comfortable for my 6 month old son. No real complaints, except the straps are a bit of a pain to tighten.

Best convertible car seat
My kids love this car seat. Considering we had to go through two different infant seats until we found one they wouldn't cry in - the Britax marathon was an immediate like by both! They are happy, comfy, and safe when we drive anywhere now!

Fast shipping, great priced. This is a great car seat and I would definitely buy from here again!
This car seat has excellent safety ratings. It was easy to install and I love that I don't have to take the seat out every time I need to adjust the straps.

Big britax fan!
I first experienced a britax seat w my first child, now 8. I bought him the britax frontier. Quality...through and through. When my new baby, now 5 months old went to his 4 month well visit he weighed 19lbs2oz. The time had come to find a convertible car seat. Right away I leaned toward britax. I have a Saturn ion. My car is small, mostly plastic...and I drive 70 miles of round trips a couple times a week on a highway and into the city of buffalo, N.Y.. crazy, disrespectful drivers. So I knew I needed some serious side impact protection and a steel frame. High weight limit for my big baby boy, as I hope to rear face him til he's 2! His daddy mentioned he'd love a green seat. Then I came across the britax marathon in kiwi! Love it. Installed easy. Easy to use. I wasn't big on the infant positioning pad or the huge belt protectors on the neck straps. I ended up getting thinner ones and not using the pad. All in it. Glad a spent a little extra for the britax!!

Easy to adjust
The Marathon is a great carseat. Having all the safety features we want and the ease of adjustment makes us very happy. Tightening of straps took a little getting used to for our rear facing 19 month old because we are not used to the grey pieces by the chest clip, but it just took a few times of working with it to get it down. It feels very sturdy and yet feels comfortable for our child. We are very happy with this purchase.

Great car seat
This car seat is extremely well made, as well as attractive. It fits behind the driver seat of our Subaru Forester (rear-facing) without my husband having to sacrifice leg room when he drives. We love the adjustable head rest/shoulder strap feature. The seat includes a cushion for babies 22 pounds and less; however, I wouldn't put very small babies in this seat. The provided padding still leaves lots of room for heads to flop around in. We used an infant car seat until the baby outgrew it.
Prossafe, sturdy, easy to use, high quality
Constoo roomy for newborns
Best Usesconvertible car seat, rear-facing, front-facing

Love this!
The pattern is super cute. It's slightly easier to buckle our little one into this seat than it was for our oldest in her Marathon. The easy photos on the side are very helpful as well! Baby girl used to scream every time we would buckle her into the old Marathon seat. She's super happy these days, and super safe! Love it.
ProsEase of use. Easy to install and uninstall. Cute!
