    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable, safe, certified for air travel, comfortable cushion, rear and forward facing
    Cons: Shoulder straps need cover, seat can get hot in the sun

    Summary: There are so many different carseats on the market, I had a hard time choosing one!  However, I knew that I wanted a convertible one even though it meant that I couldn't take my baby out in the infant car seat, making it less ... read more

    Pros: Safe, Cute, Comfortable
    Cons: Semi-Difficult to install

    Summary: I wish I would have bought this car seat first before buying the infant car seat and her outgrowing it 5 months later. I always had the hardest time getting my daughter into her car seat. Going any where was a constant struggle. She cried being ... read more

  • Wish I had gotten this to begin with. Wonderful, compact car seat.

    Aug 1, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, secure and comfortable. 
    Cons: I really don't have any cons.

    Summary: I wish we had gotten this car seat to begin with.  We started with one of the car seats that popped out and transfered to the stroller, or used to carry the baby.  But the car seat was much to heavy for this and we ended up giving it ... read more

    Pros: Safe and affordable
    Cons: Harness height adjustment is not customized to your child

    Summary: Our son recently outgrew his infant seat so we were in the market for a convertible car seat. For our Honda Civic, we purchased the Britax Roundabout. The decision was made primarily on the reputation of Britax as a safe car seat and this was their ... read more

    Pros: Safe; Highly Rated; Easy to Use
    Cons: None Really

    Summary: There are many decent car seats available on the market. Britax manufactures many of them. This is one of Britax's less expensive models, but, by far, the best. It's Consumer Reports (www.consumerreports.org) highest rated convertible car seat with a ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great for compact car, convenient
    Cons: expensive

    Summary: Our first car seat was great, but my daughter outgrew it at around 7 months. We had trouble finding any seat that would fit my car (ford contour) This was basically the only one that would fit in between the seatbelts in the back seat. That being ... read more

    Pros: Safe, cushy ride for junior and stylishly sized for parents
    Cons: None

    Summary: Like many other parents and reviewers, I did a lot of research before buying this car seat. I'd decided on this doing my own detective work, and also my pediatrician recommended this one, unsolicited, on my last appointment prior to the seat when he ... read more

  • Do Not Buy The Britax Roundabout. It's A 60 Dollar Seat In 200 Dollar Clothing.

    May 27, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: least expensive Britax seat, easy to install with vehicle belts, compatible with small cars
    Cons: low harness height and weight limits, puzzle buckle, difficult LATCH clips, nothing special

    Summary: Free .99? How can I complain? If it were at all workable, I would never put my daughter in the car with me. Our feet/stroller would be our only carriage. This is not because I am a fanatical back-to-nature environmentalist; it is because I am ... read more

    Pros: Safe, user-friendly, good fit, plush fabric
    Cons: Plastic seatbelt lock-off versus metal, price

    Summary: I have owned the Britax Roundabout for 1 1/2 years now. After my son outgrew his infant seat at around 5 months we put him in this seat in the rear facing position, fully reclined. We have had nothing but a perfect experience with this seat! The ... read more

  • The super confy car seat

    Mar 19, 2007 by

    Pros: Fits in a small car,5 points restraint, comfortable, quality built and materials
    Cons: Extra covers are expensive but you can get them from Ebay for less.

    Summary: After having a car accident (not my fault) my insurance offered to pay for another car seat to replace the excellent Primo Viaggio I used to have. Now replacing the Viaggio is a tough exercise cause most of the car seats you can buy are as comfortable ... read more

    Pros: Strong safety record; comfortable with soft fabric and nice padding; easy strap adjustment.
    Cons: On the more expensive side of carseats

    Summary: When I did research into carseats, everything I read and everyone I talked to seemed to suggest that if cost was not an impediment for you, there was really only one decision point with respect to what convertible car seat one should buy: should you get ... read more

    Jan 27, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There are other options out there
    Cons: HUGE SAFETY RISK.

    Summary: Please don't buy this car seat. It is a huge safety risk for your child to use it. I bought the BRITAX Roundabout thinking that I was doing the "best" for my child by buying the "best" or so I was told. I bought this seat when my child was a ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tether feature, convertible and soft cloth
    Cons: Price, but well worth it.

    Summary: The Britax brand has always had a reputation of high safety, but normally that means high cost as well. I was a bit hesitant to even research it because I thought they were priced on the higher end of car seats. When I first started to research these ... read more

    Pros: Safe - Consumer Reports Top Choice

  • Awkward anchor connectors and strap

    Apr 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Safe. Small footprint compared to other seats. Good helpline.
    Cons: Anchor straps short. Anchor connectors too large. Doesn't incline enough.

    Summary: While everything seems to indicate that this is the safest car seat available it is not without draw backs. The straps for attaching to automobile anchors are very short. It would be nicer if there was more slack. In our vehicle (the Infiniti FX 45) ... read more
