I had one of these installed and someone looking at their damn smartphone rear ended me going over 50mph while I was stopped at a red light and my 2 month old baby came out without a scratch while in this product. She had no distress and no bruises. In fact after the noise settled she was smiling and giggling. The seat and base itself also suffered no damage, I hated having to throw the car seat (and the base) away but you’re supposed to after a collision. Her insurance happily paid for this replacement.
Me on the other hand I now have to have hip surgery from the accident.
This was a replacement for another snug ride 35 that stopped unlocking from the base after 1 year of use. The locking belt on the base has gotten less quality as they used to come with a locking seatbelt style attachment. Now they are just a metal hook that connects to your vehicle seat rings
I PURCHASED THIS CAR SEAT AFTER HOURS OF SEARCHING FOR ON THAT IS THE RIGHT SIZE FOR HER CAR. MY DAUGHTER IS HAVING HER THIRD BABY . THIS IS ONLY ONE OF 3 THAT WE COULD FIND THAT WOULD FIT HER CAR. IT HAS ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES. I ALSO BOUGHT THE STROLLER ACCESSORY. WITH THE STRICK CAR SEAT LAWS, YOU HAVE TO PUT A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO THIS PURCHASE. NOW ALL THREE BABIES ARE SAFE AND CAN SET IN THE 3RD ROW. AFTER HOURS OF RESEARCH THIS IS THE ONE.
