Pros: feels very safe - steel frame, narrow, fold up seat for storage
Cons: heavy...very heavy
I bought this seat after much research. I love that my daughter can stay rear facing in it up to 40 pounds, love the heavy quality feeling of it, its sturdy build, the narrowness of it as I have a compact car. It feels like the quality item it is. What I do not like is the weight of it when i travel with it, or but the main thing I dont like is that it doesnt fit properly in my compact car rear facing - not enough space between head rest and top back of seat. Once I turn her forward facing it will fit....have had to buy another for the interim.
