      Comments about Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat - Dress Blue:

      Since my daughter was getting too big for our infant car seat, we needed to get a convertible seat for my wife's car, a Toyota Corolla. We needed something on the smaller side, but with conveniences such as a no re-thread harness and easy latch system.

      The two finalists in our search were the Pria 70 and Chicco's Nextfit. We were at Baby's R Us and were able to check out the Nextfit. I liked the simple latch system, but the straps were just terrible. They just didn't extend very far out, so I knew we would have trouble getting our daughter in and out of it once she got bigger. Also, there were a lot of reviews that complained about the strap cushions and chest clips.

      So we ordered the Pria 70. It's very plush, it fit well in my wife's Corolla. The only complaint that I have about the Pria 70 is for the harness straps. When you pull on them to give you slack, it gets caught behind the seat. I took a look behind the seat, and saw that the Y-buckle gets snagged and it takes another good tug to successfully pull the straps out to a convenient length. My wife is having a hard time with it, even though I told her she could pull the Y-buckle behind the seat first, giving sufficient room to clear the section where it would get caught on, and then she could pull on the front straps with relative ease. She was not impressed.

      By comparison, the convertible seat in my car is a Recaro Pro-Ride. It doesn't have an issue with the Y-buckle catching on the back of the car seat because there's a plastic plate that prevents it from doing so. We couldn't get the Recaro for my wife's car because it was too big and would block her view in rear-facing mode.

      Like I said, everything is great about the Pria 70. But Maxi-Cosi needs to address two things in order to make it awesome:

      1. A plate on the back of the chair that prevents the Y-buckle from getting caught and snagging the seat belt.
      2. Small pockets on the sides of the car seat to store the chest buckles. Oftentimes, as you're putting your child in, both of your hands are occupied and you're leaning over at an awkward angle. It just doesn't help when you do all you can to get your kid in the seat, and then you have to pull the seat belts out from behind them. The Recaro has chest buckle pockets and they keep the straps out of the way when you put your child in the seat.

      As a higher-end manufacturer, Maxi-Cosi can afford to step it up.

        I just bought this for my 14 month old and it is awesome! We still use the padding and head inserts and she is so comfy...she loves it too! The fabric wipes cleans very well also. I find it easy to install. And, when I put her in it is perfect height and snaps easy. I LOVE it. Not one thing I don't like about it. I also love how it is not as bulky as her old Britax but yet I feel it is even more safe. The color is so cute!

          I bought this car seat because I needed a better fit in my vehicle. My 3 month old was already 12lbs and didn't like riding in the car as much as was normal with our other children. I'm pleased with the fit. She seems better cushioned and doesn't fuss when I put her in. Our other car seat has a buckle recall now so I'm glad I purchased this.

            Comments about Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat - Walnut Brown:

            I did ALOT of research before graduating our daughter from her infant seat, to this one. Most important things on the list were comfort and safety. I am over the moon with this purchase! It is a fantastic seat which I recommend to ALL parents. It is ultra comfortable with an excellent shape that snuggles the child comfortably. Safety appears to be top notch too. She loves the fact that this chair sits alot higher in the car than her infact seat, so she can now see out the windows. It is a big chair - but this is comparing it to her infact seat - but you have to consider that this seat will be used until she no longer requires the car seat. I have a Murano, and it fits in fine. If you're looking to buy a seat - get this one!! you will love it!

              Comments about Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat - Mineral Grey:

              I had originally been skeptical of this carseat - but after using it for a few days, I am warming up to the seat.

              I still don't think it was the easiest carseat to install, but after taking it back out and fiddling with it I feel more confident with it.

              As for the comfort, my son falls asleep everytime we go for a drive... so it must be okay in his book. The "head rest" is quite large and sometimes difficult to navigate around the seat with them in your way, but appreciate the safety they provide.

              Think it's a good seat but do have concerns about the fabric staining/washing up/etc...

                  Comments about Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat - Walnut Brown:

                  Our son is a big guy! He quickly outgrew his infant car seat so we moved on to his convertible car seat. Our original convertible car seat was very vertical in the rear facing position and caused him to lean much further forward than his infant seat. When he would fall asleep, his little head would flop over... I hated worrying about his head being like that while in the car.

                  After a little on line research, we purchased this car seat and we LOVE it. It looks fantastic, fits much better into our cars (a Tesla Model S and a VW Tiguan) and our son seems much happier. Not only does it just take up less space but because it sits a bit high, there is even more space for people sitting in the back, with easier access to buckling the seat belts. It leans back much more in the rear facing position so when our son falls asleep in the seat he is nice and comfy, no head flopping. He just seems overall much happier.

                  I wish there were half star options, I feel taking a whole star off for one small reason is way too much. The only con I have with the seat is that the air cushions (which are great for safety and I wouldn't trade them for anything) obscure any view out the windows. This is really such a "whatever" overall, but I guess it would be the only con. Our son likes being able to look out the windows, but safety trumps that! Also, once he is forward facing, I am sure this won't be a problem.

                  I also like that the "drink holder" is actually part of the seat and not an attachment. A bottle or even some toys can be placed in it to keep my hands (or if there is someone riding with him in the back) free while we ride along without being knocked off by a rambunctious 10 month old.

                  A final plus I like is its high weight allotment for rear facing, 40 lbs. Our son has been in the "greater than 98th percentile" for both weight, height and head circumference since birth. I want to keep him rear facing as long as possible and this car seat will accommodate the maintenance of his safety. This is our third car seat and this one is a keeper.

                  I was debating between this seat & the graco all-in-one & after reading reviews and watching videos I choose the Pria 70! I absolutely love the seat & it fits perfectly in my Mercedes C-class. My daughter is so comfortable in it and no longer screams at the top of her lungs. She's 10 months old & the seat is so padded & comfy! Also I had red in some reviews that installation was tough. I did it myself & used the latch installation & it's very secure. Also we got the pink color & I absolutely love it. The color you see in the picture is exactly what comes out the box

                    This carseat is perfect! We originally purchased a Britax carseat for our 4 month old baby girl, but now having used this one, I wish we would have just started with this one! It is sooo comfy and soft, I've never seen my baby girl so happy in a carseat before. Her other carseat was so restricting and she could barely move in it, but this one allows her to move her arms better and is more upright so she can see out better. No more screaming everytime we get in the car!! Worth every penny, LOVE this carseat!!

                    We ordered this car seat after extensive research. It was a bit pricier than a couple of others but we think it was really worth it. First of all it is user friendly to install. The instruction booklet is very clear with lots of illustrations. We were able to install and use quickly. The seat itself is super padded and seems comfortable. Our daughter made the transition from her baby seat to this with out a problem. The only draw back is the fabric shows everything. Even water seems to leave a little bit of a mark. On the plus side it washes up very easily in the washing machine...good as new! I guess one other small drawback is it seems pretty heavy, kind of bulky to move about. We have taken it on two plane trips and bought a special bag to put it in. You will need that otherwise it is just too clunky and heavy to try to carry.

                      We received this as a gift to replace a Britax B-Safe infant carrier. I had read decent reviews and decided that we would try it out. It was purchased for a Chevy Trailblazer SUV. First thing, this seat has GOT to be comfy for my daughter. It is SO plush! The cupholder is "sticky" so I anticipate things/cups staying put when in it. The surrounding head airbags make me feel as if this will really keep her safe in an accident. After about a 3 hour car ride, my daughter wasn't her usual sweaty self. And I was able to get my passenger seat all the way back, even with it reclined to Stage 3.

                      Installation was SO easy. I first had to remove and rethread the latch system, which was simple after removing the cover partly from the bottom on up. I installed this myself in my husband's SUV in less than 10 minutes. On a side note, when tightening the latch system strap, pull the belt IN towards the center of the seat. That way was the only way for me to get it tight enough.

                      If you're on the fence about this, GO FOR IT! It is so worth it with the side "airbags" and the plushness of the fabric. You won't regret it!
