About - UPPAbaby Mesa

The UPPAbaby Mesa is part of the car seat test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, infant car seat models like the Mesa are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Crash protection:
Evaluation of a seat’s potential for providing an additional margin of safety in simulated 35mph frontal crashes when compared to the performance of similar models. Evaluation is based on injury criteria measured on standardized child-size dummies, head contact with the back of a simulated front seat, and the car seat’s ability to remain intact during the course of testing.

Ease of use:
Includes the clarity of instructions, installing the seat, adjusting harness positions, placing a child in the seat, securing the harness, and removing the child.

Fit to vehicle LATCH:
A rating of how easy it is to securely and correctly install each seat using the LATCH system in a variety of vehicles and how well the seats fit each vehicle once installed.

Comment:
Really easy to install if you have bolts in your car, which all new cars have. Takes 1 minute to put in and take out. Leveling indicator lets you know that you placed it in correctly so you can't go wrong or worry that you put it in wrong. Makes you feel confident. Excellent quality material easy to clean. We ripped the cover our fault and called up customer service to buy a replacement piece, they just sent us one. Truly stand behind their products. We have traveled around the world so far over 100,000 miles with the car seat and it is airplane safe and easy to use with airplane seatbelt. Only thing is if you are on a tight seat placement it will not allow the person in front of you to lean back their seat.
How long have you owned it:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Difficult to use!

Comment:
The Mesa is very difficult to use and I regret registering for this carseat. It's hard to tighten the harness and the base does not stay put. I have to constantly readjust the base. Bottom line - don't buy this!
