Quite dissatisfied with this model which was meant to be used for rear-facing occupants for as long as possible. Has switched to Axkid Minikid 2 which is a much better model. Max-way has a really durable solution for straining the underanchoring bands making it almost hopeless to strap the chair firmly. The angled headrest in the back edge I thought would stop the head falling forward but on the contrary the head falls forward very easily in this chair when the baby falls asleep which looks both uncomfortable and dangerous. The positive is low price and decent long use time (better than Hi-way II anyway) for taller children but it's still a bit short in the back so you have to switch to forward facing too soon which is less safe. After all, this removes the point of using belted chairs up to 25kg if you still have to change the chair because too short in the back.
For us, it was self-evident to choose a rear-facing car seat when it came time to change from the baby shelter. We read tests, both on safety and ease of use and came to the conclusion that the Max-Way was a really good option because it was considered roomy without taking much space in the car, and can be used right up to 25kg. Also, it was PLUS approved, which was one of our criteria. We've really been happy with the car seat, and think it lives up to its good reputation. The only thing we have to remark on was the incline, which is adjustable yet was not enough in our one car. The same problem we didn't have with a car seat of another brand with isofixes. When our baby fell asleep, the head fell forward, which is not optimal. However, there is a wedge to buy as an accessory to get a little more slope in seats where it is needed, so it can be arranged but can be good to know.
