I just ordered the Cybex Fix + boosters and excitedly waiting for them in the mail. I have never bought carseats/boosters without seeing them in person at a store first, but I came across the Cybex booster online and it seemed awesome, so I took a chance.<br><br>
They are more $ than other boosters I looked at...I hope they are worth it!<br><br>
Wondering if anyone here has tried them?

The Cybex booster is nicely designed and works well. It's similar to Britax Kid Fix which is an Isofix high back booster. Traveling forward facing in an Isofix booster is the safest way for an older child, 4 and up, to travel (except of course for rear facing).<br><br>
There has been some warranty issues with cracked seat etc, support structure is nowhere near as great as for example Britax IMHO.<br><br>
It's a nice forward facing booster but not any safer than a Kid Fix. Due to Isofix connectors it's slightly safer than a regular booster installed with seat belt only.

It's a nice booster, but it looks better for bigger kids. Did you order the booster for your 7yo or your 3yo? I think it would work well for a 7yo, but I would not recommend that booster (or any booster) for a 3yo.

thank you for the replies.<br><br>
Adventuredad- is Kid Fix available in the US?<br><br>
Chickabiddy- I ordered two of them, my oldest DD,shes about to turn 8 actually, will be going into it now and my younger DD that's 3 will be going into it later/soon?. She is 33 lbs and 40 inches now. I was getting a great deal on the seats so decided to just get both at once.<br><br>
I dont know what to do with her because no matter what she will not keep the shoulder straps of her Recaro seat on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It makes me insane to see what she does but there is not a thing I can do about it when we are in motion.<br><br>
When in her sisters booster she sits perfectly.
