Heavy, but great seat
June 27, 2020
This seat is heavy, but most Britax seats are, due to the steel frames. I liked this seat, but it could use more cushion.

We do love this seat. It’s easy to install in our Dodge Caravan and Mazda 3. I have not been able to get a good install in our F150 super crew which is ok because I just use it in the van.

Great booster
February 19, 2020

Safe Seat
February 12, 2020
We have used this with the 5pt harness feature for the last 2 years for my son (age 8 now, but small for his age). Seat is safe which is the #1 priority. Easy for him to get in and out of. Cupholders are great, they do not detach so no issues with them coming off. Only slight complaint is the headrest makes some noise when he is not in the seat, if you google the issue there are suggestions to helping stop the noise that work very well. Overall very pleased.

Great harness booster
January 23, 2020
My son outgrew his five point harness car seat so we purchased this booster. It came earlier as expected. It’s cute, easy to install, and my son loves it. It’s more spacious and has cup holders. It’s also got exceptional safety ratings. Would def recommend!

The car seat is well made and stands up to tough toddlers! No car seat is easy to uninstall and pull apart for washing, but this one is as easy as it can be. The cupholders are great and I wish our previous Britax seats (for earlier stages) had come with holders like these.

Cheap model
December 9, 2019
We always buy Britax and got this as a Black Friday deal. If it wasn’t so large I would have returned it. It’s not the quality I’ve grown accustomed to with Britax. It seems cheap. The straps are rough and not the smooth, nice straps in the marathon and pavilion seats I have. It’s hard to get a tight fit in the car (and yes my seat belts lock and I followed the instructions exactly). It does “fit” according to the specs in the manual but just not as snug as I’d like. I would not purchase it again. Spend the extra money and get the more expensive one.
ProsDecent price

Great seat for older toddler - school age
September 25, 2019
We bought one of these seats for my son when he was 3 and we’re still using it at 7. He uses it with a seatbelt now. It was time to get a new seat for my big 2.5 year old and the other seats I researched did not compare. They didn’t recline, didn’t have arm rests, no cup holders, or didn’t offer enough padding. This seat has it all. It’s a comfortable ride for both of my kids and will give them room to grow. I also feel the design of the seat will keep my kids safe.

Britax Pioneer - Great Booster
August 23, 2019
The Pioneer is awesome. This seat may not have as many bells and whistles as Frontier or Pinnacle (no click tight) but it’s a great seat for a great price point. Love the built in cup holders, and the fact that it can be used for both harness mode and booster so it will last longer. I like that you can use LATCH to keep the seat in place once child is in booster mode (so the seat doesn’t move around if/when you’re driving without the child in the car) ...also, I don’t like the gray rubber thingies that come on Frontier/Pinnacle straps. Pioneer does NOT have them so that’s a good thing in my opinion.

The last car seat I’ll ever need to buy!
June 28, 2019
I’m very happy with this harnessed booster seat, I bought 2 others before this elsewhere and ended up returning both because I was so unimpressed with the quality and safety. I love that this seat can still be hooked up using the latch system, the way it connects to the back of the seat is also very unique and it’s nice not having to try and squeeze the buckle in the small space under the headrest. I feel like my daughter is very safe in this seat, it’s going to grow with her and color/print is adorable.
ProsBooster seat that attaches to the vehicle using the latch system Grows with child The material is soft and comfortable, doesn?t retain much heat so even if the car is hot from sitting in Florida sunshine the seat doesn?t feel hot to my daughters skin
ConsSmall spot on the top back of the backrest where styrofoam is visible but it?s only noticeable when the seat isn?t installed. Doesn?t affect quality or safety so a non-issue
Best UsesMy daughter is 4, 38 pounds and 44 inches and this seat is perfect for her

Love the seat but falling apart!
May 20, 2019
We have two Pioneer seats for my 4 and 6 year old. We have loved the seats, but the side foam pieces have all broken. I wouldn't say my kids are rough on their seats either. They foam pieces stay under the fabric but whenever I take them apart to clean they are extremely hard to get all the foam pieces in place. Going to have to buy new seats and I'm not sure what to get because I thought for sure these would be our last car seats for my kids!

Great transition booster
April 14, 2019
Previously had the Britax Marathon convertible car seat and wanted to step it up to a booster. My kid is 40lbs and 42 inches tall at almost 5 yo. Things I wanted and got with this booster: Latch connection, harness, cup holders, removable seat cover, and the Britax engineering. I decided to forgo the click tight since I did not plan to ever take this booster out of my car. I wanted to keep the 5pt harness for the safety and my kid could buckle herself in and out the convertible and could easily do the same here.

Britax Pioneer is amazing!
January 22, 2019
I ordered the Britax Pioneer for my 6 year old son because I feel safer knowing he is in a 5-point harness. He is on the small side at 37lbs and 43” tall. I did so much research and ultimatly chose this one. I was skeptical at first because there were quite a bit of negative reviews about the seat not being secure with the lapbelt. I installed the seat with ease and it is very secure. It fits perfectly in my 2015 Honda Odyssey with leather seats. Shipping was also very fast. Do not hesitate to save some cash and get the Pioneer!

Good seat, second time buying it
January 12, 2019
My older child has this same seat in another color. It is very easy to install. We bought the other one several years ago and it is still going strong. It was an easy decision for the second child. It is very heavy compared to say, Graco Nautilus or Argo, but easier to install and tighten and fits for a longer period of time. It is also not quite as wide, which is nice for a person with a narrower car. I prefer Britax car seats and have owned several others.

I wanted to get this seat for the longest time. I've got a tall heavy boy (47 pounds / 46 inches) he was in a Diono but he was so cramped up.
Pros I love the recline option, that keeps his head from slumping forward if he falls asleep. Cup holders are great. Sturdy feel all around.
ConsCon(for some prople): This is a big seat, you can't put another seat next to it (at least not in the Toyota Highlander.)

Not as easy to install as the videos make it sound
September 10, 2018
I spent at least an hour installing this in my car and it's not the first Britax car seat I've had. I strongly suggest you test your instructions on a novice and use pictures of the actual car seats in your instruction book ... not just diagrams. Some of it is just incomplete and it takes forever to sort it out, e.g. the release lever for loosening the straps has to be used in conjunction with the small release button... this is NOT well explained, visuals are NOT adequate.

Best car seat!
September 8, 2018
I had been looking at this car seat and several other seats similar to it. I have always heard good things about this brand but have never owned one. I finally bit the bullet during the sale and bought it for my 2 yr old. I absolutely LOVE it! It is a tad bit heavy but I can deal with that to have a good quality and safe car seat. My son is a little bigger than your average 2 yr old and this seat has so much room. The first time he rode in he could t stop telling me how comfy it was. I won’t have to buy another seat this one will grow with him. Super easy to install also.

It’s better than graco but not as great as clicktight
September 4, 2018
This seat fits our needs but I do not like to move it from car to car. It’s not heavy but getting the chair tight in the seat takes some work. I should have spent a little more and got the click tight version. It’s way easier. I still gave this seat 4 stars because it is a good seat and my daughter loves the cup holders and arm rests.
ProsCup holder and arm rests Not as heavy as convertible seats
ConsIt?s not clicktight but that?s not the chairs fault it?s mine for not buying the correct version

I bought this seat to have in my car for my grandson. I'm familiar with Britax car seats in general, as I had purchased 2 previously for my son and daughter in law that have been in use for a while now, and are great. I actually installed this myself, and unlike other users, found absolutely no issues with the process. Other than the weight of getting it into the house after delivery, and then into the car, it was very easy. And thank goodness for the weight as it is definitely a very sturdy and protective seat. I would highly recommend this to other grandparents and parents

Another top quality seat from Britax
August 17, 2018
Britax quality was quite evident in this seat. The metal frame makes it heavier than some, but the added security is worth it. Overall construction is top notch. The push button latches make hooking to the seat anchors easy. With two grandchildren to transport, this makes Britax seat nbr. 2, and the quality of the first seat is what sold us on buying this seat.
ProsHigh quality construction for maximum security and usable for 9 years.
ConsDirections a little difficult to understand, but a phone call to customer service solved the problem.

We are on Britax car seat #3 (B-safe, marathon, now this). We buy 2 each time so that I have one and my husband has one. Have never had issues. My 4 year old loves his new booster seat. I wanted a booster with the harness for added safety. He’s not yet 40 pounds so we’ll continue using the harness until he’s too big - he’s always had a harness so doesn’t know any different. :) He says it’s very comfortable. It’s super easy to install. We always use the tether. It doesn’t budge. Ordering was easy and shipping was very fast! Highly recommend this site and this booster.

Great harness car seat for tall child
July 13, 2018
My daughter is almost seven, we did not move her to front facing until her fifth birthday. I want to keep her in a 5 point harness for as long as possible. She is 50 inches tall which is the general height limit for a lot of 5 point harness car seats. This seat allows her another 7 inches before she switches to seat belt. I really like it so far, it was easy to install and she says it is comfortable. I love the two cup holders and she seems to have more leg room than her last car seat which was more reclined putting her knees at an angle. The only con I have had is it does tend to make a chirpy squeaking noise when it is empty I assume it is from the foam rubbing the plastic without weight holding it down. Already planning to buy my Mom one so we don't have to shuffle this one. Well worth the money.
ProsTaller 5 point harness use Two cup holders Easy to install Comfortable
ConsSqueaky chirp noise when empty
Best UsesTaller child who still needs 5 point harness

I bought this seat for my then 3yr old to move him forward facing because he was passing down his convertible to baby brother. He instantly loved the seat. It has an easy install, and very easy to use otherwise as well. We have now had the seat for a year, and it is still in the shape it was in when I bought it new. I would definitely recommend this seat to anyone that has a kiddo that is at least 2yrs old and forward facing.

Excellent harness to booster!
July 9, 2018
I bought this seat based on reviews and price point. It was to replace the convertible seat that our daughter was outgrowing. I researched just as I did when buying her earlier safety seats. It arrived quickly and was ready to go right out of the box. I read through the installation instructions and got it set up in my van. It went in pretty easily and tightened up really well. I dis have to adjust my brain for the V style tether but otherwise installation was quick and easy. My daughter was excited to try her new seat and said it is comfortable. She is able to do her own buckles after a little lesson and seems to enjoy the ride. The safety of this seat seems legit as it is heavy and has steel reinforcement. The amount of padding is less than our previous seat but I haven't heard any complaints. We are using it in harness mode.
ProsEasy installation, Feels safe, great safety ratings, stylish, comfortable, nicely sized for van or car use.
ConsNone

Tricky belt path
June 28, 2018
I find the belt path a bit troublesome. For the one I used the LATCH with I had to completely remove the strap attachment to get the LATCH cover part of the seat to sit flat again. I also think the belt path is an issue because it doesn't really sit back in the seat so that the carseat cover doesn't stick out. I (an old CPST) was able to make it work, but I'm afraid a person who knows less about carseats may struggle with this. The belt path needs to recess back into the seat a bit so that cover easily covers it. Overall it is a BRITAX and that is what I'll pay for. I have had many of their seats and I'm always happy with their products. This seat was to replace a Diono Radian rxt.

May 23, 2018
This is a great booster seat for our next step past the regular car seat. I wanted to be sure it had good safety ratings and strong harness system. My kiddo is heavy but thin and muscular so we needed something that would tighten well and keep me confident in his safety. This car seat tightens well without being uncomfortable for him. If he spills it is pretty resistant from stains. We clean up fast with detergent and water or a baby wipe and it's been a-ok. It was easy to install. And is very simple to adjust height. I am very happy with this choice in seat. It feels very comparable to our Click-Tight Frontier at a much better price. I am very happy with this choice.

Its a good car seat but can be better!
April 6, 2018
I got 3 of these boosters seats. I like that is a five point harness booster seat which gives me peca of mind that my kids will be safe in it. My kids like it and love the arm rest and they said is comfortable. The only think that I don't like is how hard is to adjust the straps. They supposilly move with the head rest but its so hard! I read that with the Frontier (a better version of this) is easier to adjust the straps so my advice is that if you have the money get the frontier instead of this as it feels more sturdy.

Would not recommend
March 29, 2018
I bought this car seat for my three year old four months ago. I researched and decided to go with this one over the diono I normally buy. Huge mistake! I despise this car seat. There have been many days that I wanted to sit this car seat out by the trash. It feels cheap, it does not tighten easily, and it a very awkward seat in the back of my van. My three year old often complains of how uncomfortable it is too. I would definitely not recommend this seat

Awesome Seat
March 11, 2018
This harness booster is awesome. It is totally not moving after being installed due to Britaxs great design. I have a rather tall four year old and he is so comfortable now!!! The only problems (which are really not important) is that the seat squeaks when child is not in it and the color is nothing like the picture. My husband chose the reflect color to match his tan and black interior. When we received the seat it is not any shade of brown but an odd silver shiney color. This seat and this brand are the only brand I will use to keep my little safe and recommend to other parents.

So many ways to secure this seat to my backseat to ensure a safe ride for my precious granddaughter. And it passed the approval of her parents with flying colors!
ProsThe seat becomes a booster seat when the child reaches a certain height and weight.
ConsMy particular car seat was purchased in February 2018, but it was manufactured in January 2017. I had already lost over one year of usefulness by the time the seat was delivered. Car seats have expiration dates based on the manufactured date. My daughter in law is a stickler for only using seats that are not expired. I had already gotten rid of another seat that had expired. This one is its replacement.

This fits my 4-year old daughter perfectly. She loves the cupholders and we no longer have to dig for the bottom buckle. We were happy with our convertible before this, but if you have the $, it makes sense to move to this to take your child through the rest of their carseat life :)

Does not install to safety standards in Toyota Sienna
December 21, 2017
I purchased two Pioneer seats for my kids; these were my 3rd and 4th Britax car seats respectively. I read reviews (not from this site, but from other parenting review sites) prior to purchasing this model that said this model is comparable to the Frontier as long as you don't mind taking extra time to ensure proper installation. Given the price difference between the Pioneer and the Frontier, I decided to try this model. With any car seat, I meticulously read the manual so I can ensure proper seat adjustment and installation in our cars. I did the same here. Given my kids' weight, I chose to forego the LATCH installation and instead use the lap shoulder belt. No matter how tight I pulled the belt, no matter how much I pushed the car seat down with my own weight, I could not get the Pioneer to tighten enough to move less than the recommended 1". In fact, the seat was moving more like 6-8" in either direction after attempting to tighten. Thinking it must be user error, I looked up install videos and even called Britax directly. Ultimately, the only advice the service agent was able to give me was to find a local certified car seat technician who *might* be able to help me. If this was the kind of hassle I would have to go through every time I needed to remove/reinstall the Pioneer, no thank you. After almost an hour trying to install this seat - and still not being able to do so safely - I returned both Pioneer models. Not worth the headache or the lack of peace of mind that my seats were not installed safely. I have since purchased the Frontier with ClickTight model (2 of them) and while significantly more expensive, the Frontier installed safely in my van in a matter of minutes.

Very Hard To Install
December 14, 2017
I love Britax and have the Frontier booster. I wanted this for an extra seat. It is really hard to install. I have been installing carseats for my kids for over 6 years and I am very particular about doing it correctly. This seat has a plastic cover over the unused latched that makes it very difficult to route the seat belt correctly. It is very frustrating and I returned it and will just pay extra for the Frontier click tight.

November 28, 2017
This seat is very non-intuitive to the point of frustration. I wanted to throw it away. Your engineers made something way too complex. You don't explain things well enough in the instructions either. Very poor performance from your company. How do you get the bottom connectors through the seat. Not explained at all.

He is 4'0" tall and weighs in at 50 pounds and I don't have a single issue with this carseat. We even have it completely latched down in our car along with using the seat belt on the seat belt path.

I am very satisfied with the quality of Britax and how easily it can be adjusted to child and vehicle. The Armrest are great for adjusting and moving as well as resting your arms and protection.

Great product for the price
August 26, 2017
We've had great luck with other Britax carseats, so when our 4yo outgrew her Boulevard 70 CS, we looked for another Britax. I was a little turned off by the prices of the higher end booster seats, so we decided to try out the Pioneer. We installed using LATCH, since our daughter isn't 45 lbs. yet, and I was disappointed to see that the Pioneer doesn't have two separate straps (one on each side of the car seat) to tighten the seat into place. There's just one big strap that spans the back of the seat, making it harder to get a really secure fit. That's my only knock of this seat. Other than that, seems nice and sturdy, great safety features, and a cute pattern.

We love the quality and look of this seat no my complaints are it's so heavy, but once it's installed it doesn't matter and there are built in cup holders, on both sides, which makenit significantly wider. I'd recommend to havebinenon one side and maybe removable, to allow more room when it's needed (like 3 car seats in the back of a Ford Focus). Other than that, very happy with the purchase and quick shipment.

Great Booster but it could be better
July 27, 2017
High Quality, the metal frame certainly give the booster a solid feel. We purchased one Pinnacle ClickTight and one Pioneer, installation is certainly a bit harder than the more expensive models with ClickTight but certainly manageable. If you are going to move the booster a lot, spend the extra money if you can. We seem to be experiencing an issue with the pull strap as its not pulling evenly on each side, I will update the review once I figure out if its an issue with our specific seat or user error (certainly possible).

We love this big girl carseat/booster!
July 19, 2017
We bought this for our 4 year old daughter, she loves polka dots and purple and I love this brand, so it was an easy choice! We got this carseat for a great price compared to other online retailers and it shipped quickly! I was a little confused on the set up...I had a hard time figuring out the instructions for getting the tether straps out and how to place them under the backrest. It was easy to adjust the shoulder straps and get it installed in the car. When the carseat is empty, it rattles...bad enough I'm going to take it out and figure out what it is. My daughter loves it and seems very comfortable while riding. Her head still falls forward when she falls asleep, but I'm not sure if any booster can prevent that. So far after a few weeks of using this, we are overall happy with our purchase!!
ProsSturdy...seems padded nicely...cup holders hold sippy cups...colors are bold and pretty...easy to adjust straps...it's not real bulky
ConsA little on the heavy side, but not too bad...it rattles when my daughter isn't riding in it...hard to get the tether straps out of the base when first setting it up...doesn't recline much (most boosters don't anyway)

I was a little surprised that it was harder to get a tight installation with the seatbelt than my other Britax seat (Marathon)... but I did not want to shell out the extra money for the Clicktight version, considering I will not be installing this seat very often. I would definitely make the same purchase again. Albee Baby's shipping was super fast, and you cannot find better prices anywhere!

Easy install, Easy transition to booster
June 13, 2017
LOVE this seat! The ease of install along with how easy it is to transition between children. You can simply tuck the harness rather than having to remove the entire harness and crotch buckle to use it in booster mode, then untuck and use it harnessed. Great for new booster riders who might need the harness for sleeping on long trips or for multiple kids. My 9 year old nephew still fits the seat well (booster mode) as does my 3 year old son in the harness. Very satisfied and would highly recommend.

This is one of the best booster seats you can buy. The straps are generously long for a pretty large child. I bought another brand that is nice but those straps do not fit a child over 60 lbs even though it says it will. It is good quality, user friendly, my 5 yr old granddaughter can fasten and unfasten herself. She enjoys the cup holders and comfort too. The slight recline allows for napping without the head falling forward. Highly recommend it.

April 30, 2017
We love this car seat! We are sure that our 5 year old is safe with the 5 point harness and adjustable head support that grows with him. The quality of this seat and all britax seats is easily seen and felt. When he's ready, we can tuck the harness straps and use the seat as a booster. We have one in each vehicle, but this seat is also easily moved if another family members takes my son for a ride in their vehicle.
ProsMy son and buckle the 5 point harness on his own, easily adjustable head support, easily transports from vehicle to vehicle, easily transforms to booster seat, fairly slim and takes up much less room than a convertible seat.
ConsA little heavy at the base. I see this as a positive also as I know my son's seat is secured.

Just what we needed
April 21, 2017
We just got our Pioneer a couple few ago - my daughter loves it! She actually hugged it at preschool dropoff for the first week:) We already loved the Britax brand, having used a Marathon car seat, but I did take advantage of the detailed Albee reviews to read up on Recaro and a couple other brands. So glad I got this one - amazing quality for the price, installation was easy (typical of Britax). I like the built in cup holders on either side, it makes life easier since as a parent/chauffeur you're always handing drinks or snacks back and forth:) A friend had given us a "big kid" booster without the back, and it was clear she was ready for a bigger seat but I wasn't comfortable without the five point harness. We went on day trip to the beach a week after we got it, and it made the long ride a happy one: I felt completely at ease, and my daughter felt like a "big girl:)" Win-win. I wish I had known about this site four years ago!

I knew I wanted Britax and was looking for the best deal I could find. If you can't spring for the Frontier, this is the next best thing. The seat and straps are very comfortable and secure. It was easy to install. The fabric is soft and easy to clean. We took a 6 hour trip right after we got the new seat and my son slept for 3 hours straight, without getting slumped over or bobbing his head. You could tell he was so much more comfortable in this seat than he was in our old Evenflo. I'm very happy with this seat!

My 4 year old was really close to outgrowing her Britax Roundabout in her grandmas car, so we passed one of her other seats to her grandma and got the Pioneer for my husband's car. It's a great seat. I had no problems installing it, she can climb in to the seat much more easily than the forward facing convertible. She loves the color and the cup holders. I think it makes her feel like a big kid. We do also have a Graco Tranzitions and I definitely prefer the Pioneer.

We've used Britax in the past and have been very pleased. Ease of use is great, super easy and snug install and great fit. Tightening the harness is very difficult. I have to pull as hard as I can several times and it hardly moves. I can get him secured properly and rarely have to tighten, but when I do, it is very difficult. The headrest is so squeaky because of the foam. He has not complained but it drives me crazy.

March 23, 2017
We were using the Alpha Omega Elite and my 2 year old is above the 99% in height, being 42" tall already. The Alpha was fitting so tight and she looked so big in it. The Britax Pioneer is perfect. She actually looks small in the seat and she has stated that she likes the way her new bigger car seat feels. Now I can have the piece of mind that she is in a 5 point harness still and not being forced to put her in a regular booster mode with a seat belt. It was very easy to install and it is so much easier to get her in her seat. It was wonderful finding the seat on sale. I also like the fact it has the new latch system where you push a button to latch and release. That was nice.

Not exactly as I expected
January 29, 2017
Decent seat but left some to be desired. The latches are hard to find behind some secret compartment in the seat. Frustrated me for sure. Also it is clumsy to install the harness. I think I did it right but does not have a good feel about it.... belt does not lay flat. Not sure why they got away from harnesses that are attached directly to the seat on either side. I find it hard to make the base seems tight.... This is the first Britax product that I cursed when installing. I have 9 carseats (not all Britax)... this one let me down.

Like most moms, I research the heck out of every decision related to my girls. When my 6 year olds Britax marathon was about to expire, I started looking for a harness to booster because she actually loves the safety factor of the harness (I know, rare but she's my safety first girl). I looked hard at a Graco and ultimately trusted my gut and went with the pioneer and am so glad I did! My daughter loves it and I take comfort knowing it's a brand that is highly regarded and has served my family well since the beginning (for both my 6 and 3 year old).

Great Car Seat, Toddler Loves it
January 23, 2017
My toddler loves this car seat. My only complaints are that it's tough to get the straps pulled tight, and unless you really yank on it, they will be too loose. It's also hard to install in vehicles since it doesn't have the click connectors... not a big deal if you are only using it in one car. If you're moving it between vehicles often, I'd recommend paying the extra money and getting one with the latch connectors.

I love that more because the installation is so easy and it doesn't budge but I didn't want to pay for another one. This is basically the same seat but at a lower price. My son seems to like it just fine.

Great booster seat!
December 14, 2016
I am a huge fan of Britax and this seat certainly does not disappoint! My daughter loves it, especially the cup holders! I got a great cyber Monday deal and paid pretty much half price! I will be buying another when my son is ready for a booster seat!

We bought this as a 3rd car seat & my son loves it so much we're going to purchase a 2nd one. Then the out car seat will just be the 3rd (extra). He can see well, sits up tall, cup holders are great! I feel it is just as safe as his old one which also has the 5 point harness.

Always a good choice.
December 12, 2016
Britax has been my first choice always. Before my first born I had done my research and was exceptionally satisfied with my selected car seat. They are impact tested with higher speed limits than the USA and made with the safety of our little ones in mind. I was pleased to find this car seat to upgrade to at such a reasonable price. Typically Britax has been a bit more pricey than others, but I have no more to say other than it is worth every penny for the safety of our little ones. I would absolutely recommend this car seat along with all of their other ones. Britax will always be my first choice!
ProsBuilt well, five star ratings, little ones love Britax car seats, five point harness, beautiful color, and it's convertible for different weight/heights.
Best UsesDurability, structure, safety, and comfortably to little ones.

Good seat, but not my favorite Britax product
November 7, 2016
I bought this seat because of the price. I have owned SEVERAL Britax car seats and quality has never been an issue. The fact that this one doesn't have the hugs is a major downfall. I actually bought some and put them on bc the straps were so uncomfortable without them. The side head protection also rattles horribly when my son isn't in his seat....my mom has the same seat and it does the same. I feel it's safe but not as safe if I'd have spent a little more ($100) for the next model up. One great thing, though, is the cup holders :)

Bought this car seat several weeks ago and liking it so far. Easily adjusts. The only thing I've found that I don't like, is that the styrofoam rubs somewhere when our son isn't in the seat and the squeaking noise drives us crazy.

Installation
September 11, 2016
Great looking booster seat. Very difficult time installing using the harness and the latches. It appears the harness is a little too short, making it difficult to attach it to the latches in the car. Have other Britax car seats, have put them in and out of cars without difficulty. This one was very difficult due to short harness. Otherwise, it is another great carseat from Britax.

Uncomfortable design
August 28, 2016
I recently bought the Britax Pioneer. In my humble opinion, the crotch belt buckle is very poorly designed. Even with the belt in the forward position, this is extremely difficult to fasten and pinches my grandson whenever I have to fasten him in. I would like the Britax male executives or engineers that designed this to try it on themselves and see if they would like a hard plastic and metal buckle tightly fastened next to their private parts and then drive over a bumpy road. Is this the best you can do?

August 26, 2016
This car seat/booster is perfect for my 5 year old son. He is still using the 5 point harness but will soon graduate to the seat belt booster. After much research I feel he is safest in a high back booster. Definitely recommend all of Britax car seats. Been using them for years.

Easy to install. The seat is comfortable and my son Kris telling me how much he likes his new car seat. Using it as a five point harness now, but will convert to booster when he is bigger. The buckles are easy to snap as well as tighten or loosen. Very pleased with the purchase.

Pay more $ for peace of mind
August 18, 2016
We have always had Britax for our son. First, the Bsafe which clicked in, next the convertible click tight which just clicked in. When purchasing this harness to booster seat for my husbands truck I wanted to save a little bit of money so I went with this lower model. I could not get it to properly instal. It wouldn't stay secure on the seat and would move well past the one inch marks allowed, basically flopping all over the place. Rather than messing with it another day, we just bit the shipping bill and spent the extra money to get the click tight version and it has been great! Def. recommend spending the extra money and going with something you know is properly installed every time.

saved money on this purchase and got a fabulous product. the only thing i wish was different was that it should have come with the anchor strap, instead I have to order that separately or use the cars seatbelt to secure the seat. Overall, great experience purchasing, shipping and great product at a low price.

Fantastic seat
July 16, 2016
I bought this for my 38 pound 6 year old. I still have her in the 5 point harness but will move to a seat belt when she weighs a little more. A complaint I had with other boosters was that the seat was hard and my older child complained about them hurting her bottom. This one is not like that. There is plenty of cushion. This seat is well built and I feel my child is safe in it. Very pretty too!

Not what I expected.

I bought this seat almost 3 months ago. I'm not impressed. It is very squeaky. I was told by a customer service agent to tape the headrest and the foam. No luck. When I pulled the seat portion up to locate the latch straps, it felt very cheap to me. The plastic piece was very difficult to snap back down. The seat was replaced. I'm still having the same issues. I recommend spending the extra money to purchase a Frontier. Overall the seat is comfortable, and safe. I guess you get what you pay for...

I purchased one and and a few months purchased a second seat. My brother is 8 years old but very very small for his age being a premature baby. I like that I can still keep him in a 5-point harness for added safety! These seats are easy to install, very comfortable for him, and my family has been happy with britax since my brothers infant seat was purchased. I also the love the easily adjusted no re-thread harness! And it can converted to a high back booster seat with the seat belt once he's bigger! Very happy!

I purchased 2 of these booster seats and they arrived 3 days later. The seats install relatively easy and the straps tighten easier than my old Britax car seats. They are still a little hard to tighten which is a little frustrating, but nowhere as hard as the old seat. It's a sturdy booster seat that looks sharp. My son loves the built-in cup holders.

Dissapointed
January 1, 2016
We loved our Britax boulevard, so when it was time to buy a new seat we wanted a britax. We are disappointed on the one handle tightening system. It takes a lot of work to get the seat feeling tight. Our previous seat was very easy to install with two straps to pull, one on each side. I am also very disappointed with how hard it is to tighten the restraint straps. We have had the seat for over a year and I kept hoping they would get softer, but no luck. I have to get inside my van to have enough strength to pull my son's straps tight enough to be safe. This seat still has features that I like such as the easy to remove cover and the quick easy adjustable strap, however I wouldn't recommend this seat.

preferred frontier
December 16, 2015
I got this to replace our frontier (about to expire). It strikes me as more cheaply made, especially the straps. They strike me as very slightly less wide and they don't have the harder rubber guard over them like the frontier does. This really bothers me..my main reason for buying britax is the straps were so much more robust than other brands. Its also true it does recline but again, doesn't strike me quite as much as the the frontier.

Good, not great
November 20, 2015
Bought this for my 4 year old due to outgrowing his Roundabout 55. I want him to remain in a harness for as long as possible and this booster provides that. Love the cup holders!! Things that bother me are that this seat does not seem to tighten as well as it should, the adjustable headrest portion rattles constantly if my child is not riding and the tightening strap for the harness is entirely too long. After buying multiple seats (of different brands) for my older child, I vowed to stick with Britax for my younger one. However, this seat has not met my expectations in comparison to previous Britax purchases.

Nice Seat
September 2, 2015
So far so good! We purchased this car seat for my daughter because she was close to outgrowing her Britax Marathon. We liked that it came in pink (daughter was very excited). AlbeeBaby price was by far the best. The seat arrived quickly and the package was in good condition. I cannot speak to the seatbelt installation because my daughter is within the weight limit required for the LATCH installation, although that will change soon. My daughter loves the cup holders and has been able to fall asleep in the seat. It's easy for her to get in and out of. My only complaint is that, like many before me found, it is a little difficult to tighten. I tried a Frontier in a store and it was even worse, I'm not sure why or how Britax can remedy that. For now, we really like this seat and would recommend to others.

Love Britax- Hate Install
August 13, 2015
We Love Britax products but this seat took over an hour to install, because the harness was installed incorrectly by the manufacturer (twisted straps underneath). The directions only state "do not disassemble harness straps", but I had no other option. Once this was figured out and corrected the seat install was very easy and seems extremely sturdy like our other Britax seats have in the past.

I bought one of these boosters for my 4.5 year old and she loves it! She is so much more comfortable in this carseat. We are a Britax family and even though she could still be using the Marathon or Boulevard due to her size, she was feeling cramped. The color is a brilliant coral. Looks very close to the picture shown on the website. We actually just bought a 2nd one and it will be here Friday. I love that she can have the safety of a 5 point harness while being in her "big girl" chair. We bought the blue one for our other car. Can't wait to see it!

We purchased the carseat about a month ago, I am so glad I did. This was my first Britax purchase and I am so happy we went with this. We had another brand that was highly rated and everyday I just wasn't comfortable with my five year old being in it. This seat is a world of difference the weight alone made me feel more secure with it. I found it to be easy to install and had no issues at all. My son loved the straps and the seat overall. I plan to by another in a few months for my other son when he is old enough for it. I will only be buying Britax from now on. The quality is far superior than others.

Just one small flaw
June 24, 2015
We ordered two of these for our 4.5 year old a couple of weeks ago. We were able to install them in each of our cars (a Honda Pilot and a Toyota Avalon) fairly easily. It took my husband maybe 20 minutes to install each one, and he was able to tighten them without issue, which I know was a complaint from some. My daughter absolutely loves her new seat, especially the cup holder and the fact that it's pink. I haven't noticed that it rattles or is noisy when she's not in it (another common complaint I read). The only complaint I have, and I realize it's minor, is that after I buckle her in, I have a hard time tightening the harness. The pull strap used to tighten it is really hard to pull. It takes me quite a bit more effort to tighten the harness than it ever did with our Roundabout or Marathon. I'm hoping it will get a bit easier with more use. Other than that one small thing, the seat has been great!

My daughter has been in Britax car seat since she was born, so when it came time to transition her to a booster seat, I didn't even shop around. I am a loyal Britax fan and that's what we got. She loves her new seat, of course it helps that it's pink :) I feel safe and comfortable having her in it. It is secure and safe. The back metal support to the seat is a big selling point for me. I highly recommend this seat and any Britax seat.

I purchased this seat to step up my older son when his little brother needed the Marathon. I absolutely love the seat and so does my son. It is easy to install (though I prefer the two anchor straps on the Marathon). When I install it, I can easily make it so the seat will not move even 1/2 inch. We move car seats around often, so ease of use is critical to ensure proper installation. This seat meets that need. I also love the style- the arm rests and cup holders make it clear that this is a "big boy" seat. It will last a very long time in booster mode as well. The red color is a nice feature too for my son- it makes him feel extra special that his seat is "cool". We have one car seat that is not a Britax, and four that are. I regret purchasing the one other brand- the Britax are all so much easier to use and I feel more peace of mind using Britax.

Just bought this for my 6 year old. We have always been a Britax family so when it came time to getting her a booster I knew I wanted to continue with this brand. I love that I can still use the 5 point harness with her since she only weighs a little over 40 lbs., but still have the option of using the seatbelt when she gets older. We love the color and she loves the cup holders. My only complaint is that she sometimes still falls asleep in the car and it doesn't support her head like her old car seat did. Overall I am very happy with it and will be getting my 3 year old one when it is her turn to be in a booster too.

Very Comfy, But Extremely hard to install tightly and noisy!
April 29, 2015
Just got this carseat. I had the Britax Boulevard before and loved it. It was easy to install as it had a pull on each lower connector. This only has the one so getting it tight it hard! This is also a very noisy carseat when no one is riding it. My son who is 4 loves it and I know he will be safe! Only wish is that Britax would go back to the 2 lower tightening straps as they were easy!

Great Seat. My son loves it!
April 25, 2015
Moved from a baby seat to this as a booster seat. My son loves it cause he is a "big" boy now and I love it cause it's a great, heavy duty seat. This seat is solid and very well built. All of my car seats are britax.
ProsWell built. Heavy duty. Easy to use.
ConsA little bit of a chore to tear it apart and clean it. But it's worth it because it is such a high quality seat.

this is the worst car seat ever! Very difficult;t to install and use.
April 24, 2015
I bought this as a recommendation from a sales clerk. It was difficult to install and then modify to fit her. This car seat is supposed to be safe but will not if it is unusable. It is going in the trash . What a waste of time and money.

Britax Customer for Years, But Still See I'mprovements Needed
April 7, 2015
We purchased two Pioneer boosters for our two vehicles. We have owned at least six Britax car seats/boosters with all three of our children over the past seven years, so have seen the company make changes. Most of these changes have been for the better (i.e., increased safety, which is most important to us). However, some of the changes have made installation more difficult. With some of our older Britax car seats, it was easy to see where the latches were stored in the seat, and hence easy to remove them. It took us a while to determine where the latches were stored in the Pioneer, and a bit of maneuvering More importantly once the seat was latched in the vehicle, on older model car seats there used to be two straps (one on either side of the car seat) to pull and tighten the seat down. Now, there is one strap, on one side of the seat, that you pull to tighten down the seat. I own a 2011 Toyota Sienna and due to the thickness of the seat pad, the strap ends up being very short, and subsequently very difficult to pull on to tighten the seat. I was very disappointed in this. I don't understand why the company has made it more difficult to correctly install the seat. It seems they did not consider the range of vehicles and seat pad thickness that their car seats would be installed in. Our second Pioneer was installed in our Ford truck much more easily because the seat pad was not as thick, and hence the strap was much longer, thus making it easier to pull to tighten the seat down. The Pioneer in my Sienna is not as tight as the one in our Ford. I believe it is tight enough to the standard, but it took A LOT of elbow grease and sweat by my husband to get it there. Again, it was easier to tighten down the Britax car seats when they had the straps on both sides of the seats. You could pull equally on both sides, now you have to pull on one side, sometimes with a very short strap (the straps should be much longer). Britax needs to research this and strongly consider changes to this feature.

Very nice seat
March 26, 2015
I really was impressed when I first took the seat out if the box. It's very sturdy and quite heavy! You probably would not want this to be a seat you have to move around a lot. LOVE the placement of the TWO cupholders and the fact the you can recline the seat a little is so nice if the child wants to sleep. I wish the arm rests moved up and down to make it easier to get in and out. My less expensive Safety First model has that feature and it is nice. It was a trade off though for the nicer cup holders. All in all a great seat. A little pricey but seems super safe & sturdy. Love the color & fabric too

March 22, 2015
I have been a graco fan for 8 years. But my youngest had a graco Nautilus that we bought 2011. It was amazing served well but it only harness to 40lbs. Which was our problem my son turned 4 40lbs and 36inches tall. When we buckled him in he would cry his strattle you hurt bad. So we looked at a new graco all buckles did the samething. so i did research and found this carseat we tried him in it he had lots of space between him and the buckle between his legs. I was thrilled and never regreated it. I love the fact he can 5 point harness till his ready for a booster or 70 lbs

So far so good
March 18, 2015
I have had the product two weeks. I bought it for my four and a half year old. She got too tall for her old britax car seat but I don't want her in a booster seat and seat belt. I feel she would be safer in the 5 point harness. She seems to be comfortable. It is more difficult to tighten the straps but if I reach behind first and pull there it works fine. I love the independent LATCH system on the old britax car seat and this seat has one strap so it was more difficult to tighten. Still it seems to be a good car seat.

March 18, 2015
My 4 1/2 yr old loves her new car seat. I love the built in cup holders and the main reason I bought this one over another britax booster was the harness this one has. I love knowing she's extra safe with the harness until she's ready for a shoulder belt. Overall we are very happy with the new seat. We love Britax and will use them all the way!

March 16, 2015
My daughter loves this seat and we do too! It's a great transition seat! In our case we have a new little one so we were passing along the seat that will still rear face to the littlest one and opted to get our big girl a seat that will transition into a booster when the times comes. She loves the arm rests and the cup holders.

This is the first booster-like car seat we've bought and we love it! My parents bought a cheaper one and we're so glad that we spent the extra money on this one. We love that it can recline so our child can sleep in it easily without all of the head bobbing. Our child likes it too...the 2 cups holders are great and it's easy for her to get in and out of also. We'd definitely buy this one again.

Another great Britax seat!
January 28, 2015
This is our second Britax car seat. The first was a Pavilion convertible car seat, which I loved, but now that my daughter is going to be a big sister, we decided to move her to a booster. I love that the Pioneer is a harness-2-booster seat. It keeps her secure and it grows with her. It was a little tricky to install with the latches and top anchor, but that could just be my fault--I've never been good at installing these things. (Don't worry! I always have my hubby double check it for me.) The seat is a pretty pink color that my daughter loves. And it seems really comfortable for me. It's easier to get her in and out of this seat than the convertible seat, but I wish the arms collapsed so she could get herself into the seat. The built-in drink holders are convenient. The seat is fairly easy to wipe clean. Overall, I think this is a great buy! Good price for a quality Britax seat!
ProsComfortable, two built-in cup holders, bright color, side impact protection, adjustable headrest, harness-2-booster
ConsArmrests don't collapse for easy entry & exit.

Awesome booster
January 21, 2015
My five year old wanted to move into a booster but is still only a little over 30 pounds. I got this booster so he can use the five point harness but still be in a "big kid" booster. I love that I can get it attached so snugly in using the latch system. So easy to do and feels super secure. He loves the green color and the two cup holders. It was easy to adjust the head piece. Overall, a great booster!

Wonderful but VERY hard to tighten
January 20, 2015
We are die hard Britax customers. The Pioneer is wonderful for my son who is very tall. It will fit him for many year. My only complaint is that it is extremely difficult to fully tighten the straps. We have uninstalled and reinstalled the seat numerous times with the same issue. I have to stand on our bumper and pull with all my strength and still it seems to stay somewhat loose. In addition, the seat fabric ripped 1 week after we installed the seat at the seams. I would probably not use this seat with my other children.

We upgraded from a Graco car seat that we had for 3 years. The Pioneer was a huge upgrade, safer, much easier to install, and the price was comparable to " our Graco. The one complaint I had were that the instructions were not well written. Easy enough just search YouTube for instruction videos, and you will have a them ready to ride in no time!

Have used this seat do over a year, in harness booster and seat belt booster mode. Good seat when the kid is in it, however when it is empty it rattles excessively. This is the second one of these we have had. We took the first one back because it rattled so bad we thought there was something wrong with it. We have even tried putting padding in places to stop the rattling with no luck.

This seat was the upgrade to our old Britax Marathon. The lower profile helps with getting in/out! It has the same lower anchor/upper tether that we are used to, so it is easy to install (but it can be used with the seatbelt, instead). This seat is heavy, so be careful transferring it from car to car.The fabric is nice too, easy for kid to get situated ("stickier" fabrics make it hard for kid to move.) We like how this one reclines slightly... our 4 yr old still falls asleep in the car. Great price on Albee - they are wonderful to work with.

Best Thing I Ever Bought!!
October 5, 2014
This seat was originally purchased as a replacement seat for an Evenflo car seat I had for my 2 year old before we were rear-ended in a car accident. This seat is amazing! My son is pretty tall for a 2yr old (literally about an inch away from being 3ft.) and this seat fits him perfectly. The adjustable back is perfect for a growing boy and when he falls asleep in the car his head doesn't slump down like in most car seats. It support him well, gives him enough room to be snug yet comfy and he loves it! (especially the arm rests and cup holders he uses for his little cars). This is the best car seat we've ever bought (it's the third as he outgrew the other and we had to get rid of the second one). I'm so glad I purchased it. Great investment!

Great Next Step for Our Preschooler
August 19, 2014
Our daughter was outgrowing her Britax Boulevard and as well as we had a new baby in need of the seat. When we began to shop for a booster for our preschooler the Pioneer 70 was the next logical step for her. The seat buckles are similar and the installation was the same as the Boulevard. After having a seat that you do not have to re-thread the shoulder straps when your child grows taller, you'll never go back! This seat, like the Boulevard, only needs one hand to adjust the seat back height.

Bought the pioneer 70 as a replacement after being rear ended on the interstate. The installation was a breeze. The seat feels really solid. Dual cup holders help contain the mess a three year old brings with them. Most importantly when my daughter saw the array of car seats on display at the store she stopped looked over them all and said I like the red one. I was happy she liked a britax. Took the floor model to the car for a test fit went into my 2004 xterra with no problem. Thanks to Britax for keeping my baby safe.

LOVE it and so does my kiddo!
July 28, 2014
I went from the Roundabout 55 to the Pioneer 70. After much comparing (different brands) and price shopping (different brands and prices) I was able to purchase this seat for my kiddo (LOVE Britax and wanted so badly to have this seat)! It is very grown up for a 5-point harness seat and my kiddo is comfortable in it. I am able to adjust the back without having to take the seat out of my car which is a bonus for me, especially when I have moved cars and he is not with me. The ONLY thing I do not like about this seat is the fact that the lower anchors are attached and you tighten from one side (one strap holding both lower anchors). On the Roundabout I was able to tighten the lower anchors individually, making for a tighter fit. This one thing does not break anything positive for me on this seat.

Worth the cost vs competition
June 21, 2014
We have this seat and a highly rated and popular competitor, and while the Pioneer 70 is not perfect, it is well worth the extra cost. The reasons include: Easier installation (quick release LATCH buckles) Tighter, more secure installation Thicker, more comfortable padding Better side protection No rethreading shoulder straps as you child grows. Made in USA (this may vary depending on where you buy it) I did have a bit of trouble installing the LATCH belt as the instructions weren't clear (it goes BEHIND the flap, seat belts go in FRONT of the flap). But once I figured that out installation was very easy to get secure. The head rest seems a bit flimsy and can't be adjusted while installed without loosening the car straps. A small price to pay for not having to rethread the shoulder straps. The recline mechanism is also fussy and hard to use. Once set, you probably won't be adjusting it. Be sure to check the lap belt fit as well, as IIHS testing has shown it may rest too high on the abdomen in some cars. Fits great in my Grand Caravan though. It's important to check that fit on any seat, just something to be aware of. The Pioneer is rather heavy but that's due to the sturdy steel frame. All in all it's a strong, easy to install, comfortable, great fitting seat, just what I have come to expect from Britax.

heavy and big
June 18, 2014
I bought this chair for my 2 year old daughter thinking that I would be so happy with it, but I really don't like it. It is too big and uses a seat and part of the other. It is difficult to clean because it has very small places where dirt just stays there. I am not happy at all. I have a year with it and cannot return it. I prefer to have a Boulevard (which I bought for grandparents and she is perfect in that one. Oh also to sleep is an issue cause it does not recline. It is just not for 2.5 years old.

Great child seat!
June 1, 2014
I bought this for daughters car because she was going to be commuting an hour 4 days a week with my 2 yr old grandson. I wanted to make sure he was safe and comfortable. It was a little pricey for our income but I felt it was neccesity. He had been using a cheap Costco seat that pasted safety rating but it was all plastic with a very thin fabric over it. So uncomfortable. As soon as my grandson saw this seat he was so happy. He felt like a big boy with the arm rests and cup holder. He said it was comfy. It also has a recline which helps when he falls asleep. The padding in this seat is very nice and it washes up extremely easy. It says to hand wash it but after my grandson got sick in it there was no choice. I pretreated it used a toothbrush on stains and put it on delicate cycle. Didn't hurt it at all. I hung it up to air dry. The LATCH system is easy to use as well as the whole installation of the carseat. 1 minor detail is the button the you push to tighten the harness is set back farther than any carseat I've had. Someone with short fingers may have a problem. But its not like your adjusting it everytime so its really no big deal. One last thing is the seat is heavy. Like 22.5 lbs. It is due to extra safety features. Its not a seat that you want to be taking in and out of the car. I know some single parents share a carseat so if thats the situation you might want to think about that first. All in all I would definately recommend this seat to others.

It was a little pricey for our income but I felt it was neccesity. He had been using a cheap Costco seat that pasted safety rating but it was all plastic with a very thin fabric over it. So uncomfortable. As soon as my grandson saw this seat he was so happy. He felt like a big boy with the arm rests and cup holder. He said it was comfy. It also has a recline which helps when he falls asleep. The padding in this seat is very nice and it washes up extremely easy. It says to hand wash it but after my grandson got sick in it there was no choice. I pretreated it used a toothbrush on stains and put it on delicate cycle. Didnt hurt it at all. I hung it up to air dry. The LATCH system is easy to use as well as the whole installation of the carseat. 1 minor detail is the button the you push to tighten the harness is set back farther than any carseat Ive had. Someone with short fingers may have a problem. But its not like your adjusting it everytime so its really no big deal. One last thing is the seat is heavy. Like 22.5 lbs. It is due to extra safety features. Its not a seat that you want to be taking in and out of the car. I know some single parents share a carseat so if thats the situation you might want to think about that first. All in all I would definately recommend this seat to others.

I just bought the pioneer 70 in kiwi for my son who just graduated from his Britax advocate. He absolutely loves it the cup holders are an awesome plus and it leaves a little more room in the back seat! It's so sturdy and well made an excellent quality product from Britax!

I bought other, cheaper brands and models, for our care takers cars who only drive our children irregularly and they are a nightmare. you get what you pay for. My kids never complain in these seats. they wash beautifully and really cradle the children.

Very happy with this product --- easy to install as compared to other brands -- love having two cup holders --- my son got sick in the car seat already and it was easy to clean and re-install! I am very happy with my purchase and have purchased one for my daughter too!

Easy to install, easy to adjust
May 16, 2014
This carseat feels so sturdy! Once I read the instructions and owner's manual and adjusted the straps correctly, I was able to install the seat in less than 5 minutes. I've not had experience with this type of seat before, so I was completely impressed with how easy it was to adjust the harness straps. I'm impressed! Feels like a quality piece of equipment which will keep my child safe.

I've had this for about 5 months. My 3 yr old uses this seat. I like the reclining option, and how easy it is to install.

Great seat

We have two pioneer 70s. They fit my tall skinny daughter really well, as well as fitting in multiple cars with no problem. Easy to install and my kiddo says they are comfy. I like the multiple ways to adjust the seat to fit your child.

The Best of the Best

Extremely heavy, but really sturdy. I had the seat installed at the local police station. He had a little trouble with the directions, but once figured out, was easy. Policeman said this was NASCAR quality.

Love our Pioneer 70!
April 23, 2014
We bought the Pioneer 70 in Gardengate when it first came out. It was my first Britax purchase and I was not disappointed! The padding is excellent and the seat installs so easily in my husband's Civic (like it was made for that car!) My 3.5 year old always complained about her back hurting in her Graco seats (due to the lack of padding) but she loves how comfy her seat is, and she picked the cover too. My only issue is that the cover is a pain to wash! It took forever to take the cover off, hand wash in my bathtub, hang dry, and reassemble, so I've only washed the cover once in almost a year. Other than that the seat is awesome for smaller kids (we didn't need the high limits of the Frontier 90) and I'm glad that I will be able to keep my daughter harnessed for many years!

Solid built and nice height adjustment
April 7, 2014
I bought this to replace my son's convertible seat that he was getting too tall for. He's four and not ready to be in a straight booster yet. This seat has the 5 point harness to the go into a booster. The height adjustment is easy to adjust. It has decent padding and my son likes the cup holders. My husband had no problem installing it. We didn't recline it although there is the option to. Cons: it is a heavier seat. I don't switch vehicles often so not a big deal. It is narrow enough that my 3 kids can fit across my highlander in it. Another com is the release for the strap that you tighten the seat belt. It's hidden in the front. If you had tightened the seatbelts when your child wore just a shirt and then wanted to loosen them a little because of a coat, it's a little inconvenient compared to our previous seat. Overall, we're happy with it.

Don't waste your money
April 2, 2014
I bought this seat about 6 months ago and I just wasted my money. I will have to buy another seat because this is very straight (90 degrees) and when my son falls sleep in the car his head keeps falling. It doesn't recline to hold him properly.

Very Good Seat for my small 4 year old and large 5 year old
March 22, 2014
We have two of these for our two children. Both kids are comfortable in the seats. I like the way that they secure in the four cars they are in often. I am not 100% convinced it is the right seat for a car without the latch system though. One of the grandpas has a corvette and the seat is very secure, but I am not 100% a fan of the installation. That being said, I have little to compare it to in regards to other seats and foresee them all being the similar or worse. The seat feels very strong and well built. Putting my kids into other people's car seat boosters worries me when I compare some of them. I do not have any real complaints or concerns with the seat.
