Hi. We do have a mondeo 2008 but have always had it in our Suzuki. So if it fits the Suzuki I don't see why it wouldn't fit the mondeo. The baby store would probably have a model you could try in your car

What is the major difference between maxi guard and maxi guard pro except bamboo fabric?

the extra side protection and arm rests on the Pro. Worth the extra money just for the fabric let alone the extra safety

We have the Maxi guard Pro which we purchased in July 2016. Our daughter is 2 years, 3 months and is in a forward facing position. we fasten her in the seat firm but not constricting and every time she is in the seat she manages to wriggle her arms out of the fastening (houdini). how can we prevent this from happening as it is not safe for her to travel in this way?

Oh no! Kiddies can be such little contortionists can't they. You are rightly concerned, it is definitely not safe for her to travel this way. To be honest, I've heard of a few mothers who complain of the exact same thing with harness seat belts - their children wriggle free of the straps. It's not a brand or model specific complaint, it seems to happen in different seats, the common denominator being the harness belt system. I personally haven't experienced this with my children so I feel at a loss to be able to offer you any meaningful feedback. I will say however that I do consciously harness my children in very tightly. In fact, I've been chastised by other family members who think I'm compromising the comfort of my children, but my children don't complain so I ignore the critics. I make sure there is enough room to slide my hand flat under the belt along my child's chest, but not enough room to be able to make a fist. This makes for a very firm fit, but like I said my children don't mind and so far they haven't wriggled free. The only other thing that I can think to mention is to be sure the straps feed into the seat above the child's shoulders. If the straps are at the same level of the child's shoulders, or below, the child might be able to slide the straps off (no matter how tight they are) and wriggle free. You're probably already doing both of these things, and in that case I simply wish you all the best in being able to find a way to keep her secure and safe.

Have you tried putting a houdini strap in? Its an extra attachment that fits onto the harness. Most baby shops stock them and its a universal strap

I was amazed to see that this seat can do 6 months to 8 years! My second thought was to see how its installed to see if usability had improved. I have a Britax SFS Meridian SICT and usability isn't great, but I've pretty much mastered its installation now.

I then saw that it only has a forward facing option. *How is this safe?* Kids spines don't fully develop until round the 3-4 year mark, and while there isn't a seat out there that can rear-face that long, it was the main reason I chose the Meridian because I can get about 3 years rear-facing out of it. The risk of internal decapitation (the best case scenario for a serious crash while forward-facing) is just too great! Rear-facing they most likely walk away with little to no injuries.

Great question (I was thinking the same thing... was really disappointing to read that it was forward facing only much later on as had read all the great reviews & was ready to purchase for when my bub turns 6 months!!) & disappointing to see Britax haven't answered it!!

The classifications according to the law/standards categorise seats as 0to6m, 0to4, 6mto4, 6mto8 and 4to8. You're right that these type of seats are not really suitable for any child below about 2 (and most 6m olds will not reach the entry markers) but the companies have to label them according to the pre-defined categories (which reflect the fact that the law allows forward facing from 6 months). If would be better if the law changed to require rf until at least 2.

Hi, I looked at other brands of car seats on the market but I chose the britax Maxi pro for the safety, breathable bamboo fabric, adjustable head rest and straps, no need to take car seat out to adjust straps, my child can stay in the seat longer up to 8 years, plus the extras like the cup holders that fold away and arm rests.

Hello, I recently purchased the Maxi Lite but I am concerned with the side protection and the CREP review with similar models. I then found the Maxi Guard Pro online. If you remove the cushions with a bigger children does the seat still provide the additional SCIT protection? (Is it in the cushions or the shell?) Also are the internal diameters rhe same for the 2 seats (having trouble with finding dimensions)! Thankyou For your help (I want my 16kg 2 year old to be super safe)

Hi Jacqui,
Thank you for your enquiry.
The Maxi Guard PRO car seat is approved by the Australian Standards as an entire product therefore, you cannot remove cushions etc. as this is not how the seat was approved.
Maxi Lite and Maxi Guard PRO are two completely different seats - Maxi Guard PRO is a harnessed forward facing car seat whereas, our Maxi Lite is a convertible booster seat.
If you'd like further information about our Maxi Guard PRO visit: https://www.britax.com.au/car-seats/britax-safe-n-sound-maxi-guard-pro/ or alternatively call our friendly Customer Service Team on 1300 303 330.

I'm currently using a Hi-Liner SG for my 6 year old but am considering moving him to the new Maxi Guard Pro... is the adjustable height of the Maxi Guard Pro significantly shorter than that of the Hi-Liner?

Hi, as far as I'm aware both the Hi-Liner and Maxi Guard Pro have the same exit markers- 51cm. So you should get the same amount of time in both seats, however the Maxi Guard Pro will provide extra safety due to the harness. My 7.5 year old has at least 2 years if not more left in her maxi guard pro if that helps.

Hi britax rep, just wondering why all reviews and questions seem to be by first time reviewers and very much like your having a conversation with yourself? The "everyday" female names, stock photos and wording is very obvious. This is a great seat. I own it. I'm just embarrassed for you, to see this bizarre form of marketing. Britax seats are well known to be of a high standard, you don't have to go to such desperate measures. I expect this to be deleted, its ok as i know you will see it first.

Hi Kylie,

Thanks for sending this question through to me.

Maxi Guard PRO is not capable of rear-facing it is a Harnessed Forward Facing Car Seat only.

I would recommend a Convertible Car Seat (suitable for newborn to 4 years (approx.) or an Infant Carrier (suitable for newborn to 12 months of age approx.)

Our most advanced convertible car seat is our Platinum PRO: http://britax.com.au/car-seats/britax-safe-n-sound-platinum-pro-sict/ This is very similar to the Maxi Guard PRO with all the bells and whistles.

If they would like other options, they should also check out the Millenia: http://britax.com.au/car-seats/britax-safe-n-sound-millenia-sict/ or Slimm-line: http://britax.com.au/car-seats/britax-safe-n-sound-slimm-line-ahr/

In terms of an infant carrier our Unity's are the only ones in Australia to last up to 12 months of age (approx.) View more here: http://britax.com.au/car-seats/safe-n-sound-unity-infant-carrier-isofix-compatible/

This is what the marketing coordinator sent me in regards to this question hope it helps Cam

Hi Tammy, thanks for your question. The seat would need to be removed to adjust the recline as the vehicle seat belt holds the seat in place along with the tether strap. Kind regards, the Britax Team.
