Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Britax for Safety Rating We bought this car seat back in 2013. We decided not to do an infant and just go straight for the convertible. Our daughter still uses this car seat and we love it. Cleaning it can be a pain sometimes and it is on the heavier side, but we picked this brand because it was one of the top rated safety car seats. The pros out weigh the 2 cons. Our daughter is now 25 lbs and 20 months old. She still sits comfortably in rear-facing. I'm going to keep her rear facing as long as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice carseat ! This was my 1st Britax product . I bought this for my 14 month old who is now about to turn 4 . I could easily keep using this product because my daughter is well within the height and weight . But of course I am ready to move onto a high back booster . If price is an issue and you have your heart set on Britax do not hesitate you will not be disappointed . I ordered this online without seeing it face to face and I can say this Roundabout it great . My child has never complained or been uncomfortable . I am back on Britax site looking for my next purchase . I gave it 4 out of 5 stars only because it is heavy and if you have to move it a lot it may be an issue . My husband rarely drops off or picks up our daughter and I bought a cheap very plastic and hardly any foam car seat just for his car for the rare Daddy trip . The Roundabout never leaves the Mom car .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Other Than Adjuster Strap We received this seat as a baby shower gift with our first child. We liked that it was made in the USA. It's a nice cover and seems fairly comfortable on long trips. Not too many issues with heads tipping forward too much if the kids fall asleep. It installs easily. I've appreciated the velcro on the straps and seat so the straps can be moved back and stay out of the way when taking the kids out and putting them in. I've had to do a lot of digging for the middle buckle though.When we started using it rear-facing with our first child, we had some issues with the adjuster strap fraying right away. It seemed like it was rubbing on the lever that releases it. She switched to forward facing shortly after though and we didn't have any more issues with that. We had trouble tightening it down sometimes because the metal piece that attaches the adjuster to the belt straps would catch on the seat belt holding the seat down. Our second child has just moved into this seat rear-facing and we are having a ton of trouble with the adjuster strap again. We have to leave it tightened and squeeze him out of the seat because it gets all jammed up under the release lever.We've liked the seat, but the adjuster strap issue is causing me to reconsider keeping it for much longer, especially when it costs more for the shipping than for the actual replacement adjuster strap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed in the new versuon I have a Marathon from 08 and it has Esperanto latch connectors. My new one has one strap and it makes it so hard to connect and get tight. I'm super disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Convertible Car Seat for Smaller toddlers We purchased two of these for both our cars. Our son is on the small side,so we figured that before he reached the 50 lbs limit, he may be ready for a booster style seat, so there wasn't a need to get one of the larger, higher weight limit seats. Our son is still rear facing, but we'll switch him in the next couple months. We have had no issues at all with this seat for the last year.
