Great first car seat for the price
Low Price
Unintuitive Clips
Best Uses
I've used this since my daughter was born a little over 12 weeks ago. The car seat can be difficult to remove from the car at first. I had a hard time pushing the lever and getting the car seat to actually come out of the holder. I learned the front of the seat must be pulled up before the back of the car seat, but that took some figuring out and frustration on my part. Figuring out how to loosen the straps was a challenge, but very easy to use once I found the button. Even with those drawbacks, I would buy this seat again. It's easily cleaned and after figuring out the buttons, is easy to use. And I'm definitely glad it's on the lighter side.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Light Weight
Perceived Workmanship
Right size
Made in China
Some Unintuitive Controls
Best Uses
Only able to carry kid up to 22 lbs may seem like a Con, but it makes the product more handily sized and weight less. something the buyer should take into considerations.<br /><br />It's not perfect as some of the controls are not as easy to operate as they can be. but it costs less than average, so it's somewhat understandable.
