Great newborn carseat

published

My 1st born son and now my 2nd son both seem to love sitting in this carseat. I love the anti twist straps and how easy it is to adjust the height of the straps.
I dislike how the tightening strap works, it seems to go up in "clicks" and can take a while to get the right tightness. But overall a great carseat.

Purchased in August 2017 at Baby Train Physical store for A$470.00.

Kept my baby safe

published

I am amazed by my Maxi Cosi capsule. We had an accident and it had to withstand a large amount of pressure. It kept my baby safe. Forever great full!

Secure and safe.

published

Secure and safe car seat with optimal padding. Have been using this since my baby was a newborn and she always seemed very cosy and comfortable in this. Unfortunately, the straps are a bit fiddly and take some practice to master.

Average seat

published

When babe was rearward facing the seat was very good, comfortable, sturdy. When baby was ready to face front ways the seat wasn't as practical. As he grew, the seat was less comfortable for him and less roomy as he was a chubba bubba. The seat belt is a pain to strap on, having to twist it to get into the lock. The good thing is it is easy to remove and reinstall though it is hard to put baby in and out of the seat. Baby is 1years old now and we have had to buy a new seat as it hasnt served its purpose.

Great seat

published

I bought this car seat for my little hatchback as a second seat. Turns out this this is the only car seat that my son likes sit in. My son is a big boy and so it felt a little bit tight when we first got it but once I realise that you could remove the newborn padding he fits much better.

Didn’t meet my expectations!

published

I bought this car seat for our first baby . Our budget was between $500 to $700 and we paid $650 which was within our budget. It looks really good and safe . Good colour combination and softness feels great but it is not specious for a medium size baby . It’s bit narrow so it’s uncomfortable for baby over 6 months ( for skinny baby it’s may be okay) . My son was so uncomfortable that I had to purchase a second car seat. One more thing happened with us , the harness was stuck and it doesn’t work! It is still under warranty but fixing the harness does not solve our problem because the seat itself is not enough specious for my son so we didn’t bother to take it to the store.

Solid seat

published

Our baby seems comfortable currently using the newborn setup. The angle on the straps make placing and removing our baby in a little awkward though I can’t imagine any other seats being very different. We never remove the seat and cannot see that we would need to do so. We did not buy a capsule for this reason.

Comfy but hard to take the baby out

published

My baby is very comfy in the car seat and he usually would fall asleep. However, it is not very easy to fasten the seat belt and unfasten the seat belt, it can be quite frustrating. It feels quite safe and the material is comfortable and I would still recommend it

Head Space Way Too Small!

published

For a newborn, this seat was fantastic. We did alot of research and really liked the safety features. However, when our son was 6 months old, his head became very snug in the headrest and progressively got tighter and tighter. We had to return the seats as he was hysterical and raising the headrest would make it less safe. Definitely would not have made it close to 4 years!

Great purchase

published

Pretty easy to install, bub looks comfortable in it. There is a newborn insert that can be removed once baby is bigger. The car seat is pretty slim as well, so if we were to ever have 3 car seats in the back, it would fit. It is a bit on the exxy $$ end, but there is alot of padding and we haven't looked back so thumbs up!

Looks great, fit small car! Baby is happy to be in it, fit so snuggly.

published

The new Maxi Cosi Moda comes in different colours and we found the black one to be most stylish. Baby fits nicely in the car seat since he was 2 days old. It comes with an infant insert and can fit child up to 4 years old.
Padded lining can be removed and cleaned easily. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Love it

published

Love this car seat, my baby look comfortable on it since I have changed. The cover can be took off for cleaning easily. It looks safe with air bags beside head position and it’s stable on the car seat. My boy now can get into and sit on it himself.

Snuggly seat for bubs

published

I got the Maxi Cosi Moda instead of the britax as it's a few cm shorter so that It would give more room in the passenger seat when the car seat is in rear facing mode. Also the Moda has the honeycomb sides which makes it seem more side cushioned.
When I put my newborn in the seat, she seemed very cushioned in and comfortable. Tho in the summer months the cushioning can get quite hot.
Overall good comfy safe car seat.

Happy with our purchase

published

We are very happy with our Maxi-Cosi Moda. We chose this seat after using a Maxi-Cosi capsule that we were happy with with. It is great quality and seemed one of the safest on the market. It is very padded and comfortable for our little one. The head support section is easy to change when needed. We had our installed professionally so unsure how easy it is to do yourself. The best feature is the little tabs to hold the straps when getting baby in and out, keeping the straps out of the way. Padding on the straps also button off for easy cleaning.

Questions & Answers

Monique W.

Monique W.asked

Hi we purchased this carseat in 2017 for our first daughter and I used it for her from newborn until about 1.5years when i changed to a Diono rear facing as i was finding it too difficult to lift her over the anchor straps to put her in and out. I have bought it out again to use for our 1 year old who recently swapped from the capsual to the carseat. I put up with it with our 1st as we had spent so much money on it but it fits terribly in our car (Toyota Prado 2011) even when i try to tighten it like crazy it still wobbles about and the strap is so hard to tighten/near impossible its like it just doesn't work properly or nothing like tightening our diono which tightened easily and i know the kids are secure once i have tightened it. We actually bought two of these car seats in 2017 preparing for the birth of our first daughter one for us and one for the grandparents thinking they were the best available but it fits terribly in their car as well ( Ford Falcon) and it is very difficult to tighten the strap on the one they have as well. Are we doing something wrong? Is there are way to make it sit more securely in our cars so the carseat doesn't move about or does it just not fit well in these particular cars? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I had mine professionally fitted and the put some rolled up towels under it and now it's heaps more secure then with my first bubs. Also if you reach around the back and pull the straps down from behind the seat then pull the tightening strap its heaps easier to tighten. Hope this helps
