Not only does the design and color scheme blend nicely into our vehicle, but the car seat is a great value! It was a very simple install, has great features and our daughter seems very comfortable in it with the soft padding and silky fabric. Also, compared to other brands, this car seat is very roomy for our child, yet the base is narrow and takes up much less space. Two minor things: you have to manually thread the shoulder straps as your child grows in height (very easy) and there are no shoulder strap pads (I purchased separately), but its something I'm definitely willing to do to save more than $150 for the other car seat we were considering! We are very happy with our purchase!
