This has been a very good car seat for us. First - this is not a car seat that you move from car to car. It is heavy and bulky. It stays put, until I get the rare urge to clean under it. never would I take this carseat on a plane with me, it would never fit and it weighs more than my kids. With that being said, my kids like this seat a lot. They are very comfortable in it and prefer this seat to a cheaper seat that we have in our second car. I wish the cup holder was a little wider to hold wider sippy cups but we make due. I feel that my children are very safe in this seat and would recommend it.
