UNSAFE! Please don't buy this seat!
January 10, 2023
Let me first say that I wanted to be a Maxi-Cosi fan but this is my first and last Maxi-Cosi car seat purchase. The seat comes with zero packing protection new in box- no bags, paper, or foam, just a box with a loose users manual. OK environmentally friendly perhaps but the product suffers in transit as a result. As others reviewers have mentioned, Pulled threads randomly all over the fabric and the stench of what I can only imagine is something akin to formaldehyde are the first impressions you'll be greeted with. Then it's time for the install...For almost an hour and a half my wife and I struggled to install this seat and still could not get it to securely tighten to the car without sloppy side to side movement. Even the maxi-cosi website tutorials were insufficient in addressing proper installation. There's no way I could put my child in this seat and feel remotely like it's offering adequate protection. I'm astonished this seat hasn't been recalled and pulled from store shelves as its build quality is cheap and all methods of securing the seat in the car leave way too much play for the seat to move around during a potential car accident. I've purchased 3 Chicco car seats prior to this one, all with incredibly thoughtful and reliable safety features that took less then 10 minutes to install and will be returning this seat to purchase another Chicco. For the safety of your children, please don't buy this seat.
