Maxi-Cosi Axiss Car Seat, Black Reflection
Brilliant car seat
We love this car seat and purchased a second one when we bought a second car. Easy to use and appears to be comfortable. I'm quite small with an 'independent' toddler and the fact that the seat turns to face you makes getting an uncooperative little traveller into the seat a whole lot easier on my back and sanity!

Great car seat!
I've never written a review but thought this car seat was well deserving of it. The rotating feature is so good for getting my 10 month old in the car. He's getting heavy and makes it so much easier for me and less awkward for him. When it arrived and I sat it on the floor I felt the recline didn't seem great but then tried it in the car and with the shape of seats makes it recline more and it's perfect for when my wee one falls asleep. It is more expensive that other seats but the rotation feature makes it worth it.

My son actually likes sitting in this car seat!
A very practical car seat. We are easily able to transfer it between cars and the ability to turn the seat around means that it is easy for anyone to actually put my son in it, including those with arthritis.

very versatile product
This particular seat is not only highly rated for safety, it also has another feature which many parents could find useful. Whilst it is forward facing during the car journey, to assist in removing the child from the vehicle it has a simple release lever allowing the seat to swivel both left and right so is suitable for either rear passenger seats. This allows the parent to turn the seat towrds them and lift out their child with minimal fuss, especially if they happen to suffer back pain or their little one is a little tempremental.
I have also fitted this to highter sided vehicles, and found it to especially beneficial due to the extra height of the car seat.
However, I would not suggest it would be any benefit to a two/three door car owner as the swivel facility would be wasted, nor for a two car family unless it is intended to permanently fit one seat into each vehicle. This is due to the fact that the seat is not particularly light and the fitting takes a little longer to physically fit into the car when compared to other units.

Works exactly as hoped. Much easier to put child in & take child out of the car. Good build quality & comfy for child. As a parent I have no hesitation recommending this product.

Good in side impact
This car seat proved its worth when a car ran into the side of us at speed. My daughter was kept safe and the seat still turned so I could get her out easily. Day to day I have found it a far better car seat than the alternatives - worth the money.

After searching frantically for the right size car seat for my 1 year old niece, this Maxi-Cosi came along and is absolutely perfect! Bought as a Christmas present, the recipient has no complaints; and neither do I.

Excellent seat - Highly recommended (esp. for people with bad backs)
We wouldn't choose any other car seat ahead of this one. It is extremely easy to use, rotating 90 degrees so that you can put your toddler in without having to stretch across inside the car. This is of particular benefit for my wife and me, as we both suffer with bad backs and our little boy is getting heavy. It is also really good for him, as you can get him in and out without waking him. The shoulder pads also provide much protection and comfort. It also has a reclining function and built-in easy adjusters for the head rest etc.
We considered other seats but would definitely not settle for anything less than this now. It's well worth the additonal price to get something that helps you so much! Excellent seat!
