I personally wouldn't get one ever. I don't trust the brand at all. (google cosco and Chicago Tribune for why)

Not quite sure I follow what you're asking. I would get a seat that would last RF AND be a good choice for FF.

Britax seats will be on sale in a couple of weeks and I'd consider a marathon. When you consider that after the AO you'd need to buy ANOTHER seat, the marathon is a good choice price-wise.

RFing it's fine if you take off the base and use pool noodles instead. If you're only using it rfing, a better seat would be the Safety 1st Uptown personally.

If you want a seat you'll know you have to upgrade, rather than spend over 100 on the AO, why not get the $40 Scenera and put the rest of the money towards a higher weight harnessing seat that you'll most likely need to get by the time your child is 2-3 years old.
