After doing extensive research and reading reviews, I decided to purchase this car seat for my baby. I was aware that sometimes the straps get twisted and are difficult to tighten, but I was willing to overlook those minor inconveniences. One of the main reasons that I chose this specific seat is because it very well in a compact sedan. As my husband needs plenty of leg space in the front seat, I felt like this would be a good fit for us. I like that it has a removable cover. I like that it is one of the leaders in safety. I like that it is absolutely adorable. I like that it is easily adjustable as she grows. I like that it doesn't take up much space even when rear facing. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because of the twisty strap issues. Also, my child is in the 90th percentile for head circumference and it is pretty snug for her because of the generous airbag support. She is still comfortable, but cannot wear a winter hat while in the car seat. I did find a little trick to help keep the straps from getting twisted. Simply stick them between the cushion and the seat when unbuckling the baby to remove them. When putting the child back into the seat, everything is ready to go and no straps are twisted.
