I wanted to like this car seat so badly! It's sleek and safe and all around comfy. I was between this and the Britax one 4 life. I ultimately decided on the Britax for a few reasons... I originally ordered this one for the app technology of temperature, etc. but received the wrong one which was ironic... Normally, I would've contacted Amazon said I received the wrong one, waited for the replacement and sent the wrong one back. But after installing it and realizing it that it was the wrong one, I noticed features I hated! The buckle and clip are sooooo annoying... very annoying. I would've needed one of those little gadgets to help me out. The magnet meant to hold the clips is so far and so weak that it might as well not help me at all. It's a very wide car seat comparable to others. The strap release button was easier than the Britax but I'm more likely to need the buckle button... obviously.
