I was a little intimidated by all the buttons and latches at first, but after reading the manual I was more at ease. I love that the strap adjustment for when baby grows is SO easy, no more undoing and rethreading straps, just push a button and move up or down and you are good to go. Also the clips for the seat are such a breeze, just push into the clip of the car and it's done! No more adjusting and tightening of straps. I could go on and on about this car seat, it is truly amazing!
