"We bought this specifically to avoid the difficulty associated with fixed forward seats.
Everyone who has put a baby in a car seat in the rain or dark or if you have lower back pain as i do can relate to the fact its not always as simple as it should be.
This prevents the parent having to lean into the car to place child in seat and do the buckle. It has two seating positions ( basically up and down).
I can stand virtually upright (6FT) as i place the child in the seat whilst it is in the up position.
The buckle system took a little getting used to but it now works effortlessly. You have to get in the habit of slackening the straps fully before you lift out the child - this allows you to hook the straps on their hooks ready to receive for the next time. If you don't it means you need two hands free to slacken them before you put the child back in which could involve putting them down which is not ideal in car parks etc .
I would have been happier if this fixed using the isofix system that my previous chair did but i suppose there must be a reason that it does not.
It just uses the seat belt but i must admit once i had sussed out the tightening mechanism it has remained very tight and in position/secure
Overall i would recommend - the baby took to it straight away and likes facing forward - she fell asleep in it on the first journey so no problems with comfort etc
I think putting them in sideways is one less aggravation and if it lessens the chance of me doing my back in then it has to be worth it"

Pros: the fact that the seat twists round
"I love this seat for my 6 month old baby. It's so easy to get her in and out of it and I don't have to twist my back to do it. She seems to love it too and she can look out the car window now whilst I'm driving. Brilliant, would definitely recommend this seat!! Can't think of anything negative to say about it!"

Pros: easy to use and to put the little one in/out, very easy to fit and a clever design
Cons: not a -ve as such slightly pricey ! but worth it.
"Great product and very comfortable to use.
I'd recommend to anyone who looks for quality and ease of use.
Maxi cosi products has the quality and the unique design ( swivel ).
I read in some reviews, its recommended for people with bad back, but I do have a perfect back and still went for this because of the ease of use when handling the little one. I love this product.
