Pros: -- Slits for seatbelt buckles -- Very large platform to accommodate wide car seats -- Easily cleaned with a towel; resists day-to-day dirt well -- Stays put once placed -- Slots for trinkets/ items that hang over the bench -- Thick enough that with a lot of pressure to secure the seat, the seat is still protected well from gouging.
Cons: -- Stitching where my child's feet touch began tearing after only 8 months.
All in all, given the purpose of this thing I probably wouldn't rebuy since it doesn't last very long. There are others on the market that aren't stitched that may serve the same purpose and last longer, particularly since this costs more than most.
I’ve reached out to Lusso to see what will be done. Will update accordingly based on their response, or lack thereof.
UPDATE (March 3rd, 2018):
Received an e-mail response from the co-owner less than 12 hours later. Promptly sent a replacement no questions asked, and it appears the product I received was a defect. Wow. Talk about wonderful customer service; you've kept me a shopper for life that is a breath of fresh air nowadays. In light of this, rating amended!
