Comment:
We bought this car seat almost 4 years ago. We used it first as a rear facing seat, and now my daughter is almost 4. Last week we were in a car wreck on the interstate where a dodge Durango hit us going 100 mph. My car flipped 6+ times. When we finally landed , my car was upside down, and I was stuck in the drivers seat, but most importantly my daughter was strapped in her car seat, unharmed. I fully believe that this safety first car seat helped to save her life. She walked away with only a fractured wrist in what would have been a fAtal crash had she not had such great protection
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We purchased this seat when our daughter outgrew the Safety 1st infant seat. The seat is easy to install with latch system and works great as a forward facing toddler seat. The cover can be removed (with some effort) for washing but is easy to clean with soap and water. The removable cup holder is nice for small cars. This seat has been superseded by the Safety 1st Elite 80 Air and Advance 70 Air.

Comment:
I wish I would've spent the money on the car seat I wanted. This one looks trashed and it's just over a year old. I was hoping this seat would last through at least 2 kids but that definitely won't be the case. I've already been shopping for a new one. During the summer, it gets very hot

Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
