Unsafe - DON'T BUY
This seat was fine for the first few months we used it. Then the buckles stopped clicking in properly. Baby Bunting won't replace as they said it was up to me to clean the buckles as sand and dirt can stop them working. My 2007 Honda is filled with sand and dirt and those buckles are just fine. Not only that but the buckle doesn't release separately like it does on other brands. We have cleaned the buckle but it still doesn't click in properly first time. This seat is dangerous and I am appalled that Baby Bunting won't refund it. DO NOT BUY.

Didn't really like this car seat at all. Bought it originally because it had high safety ratings for rear facing. However when I put my child in rear facing I noticed her head flopped down when asleep. I believe this is dangerous as it could impact/obstruct her airway and was not happy but thought maybe it was because I installed it incorrectly. Went and had it professionally installed only to have a towel wedged underneath. Didn't do much. After a few months I had to adjust the headrest to accommodate for my growing child only to discover it w...as faulty! One side of the headrest didn't click in properly and kept shifting whenever there was even the slightest pressure applied! This was completely unsafe and when I researched this online I discovered that others had also experienced this exact same issue! I contacted the manufacturer and the seat got sent off to be assessed. They deemed it faulty and offered a replacement but my trust in the seat had been utterly diminished. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a recall for this car seat... Please don't buy!

Best choice made
Easy to use
Comfortable for all my kids
In an amazing condition 4 years and still going
It's very secure for my boys to use while sleeping especially on a road trip I have 4 car seats from the same brand and I love it
Purchased in April 2015 at Baby kingdoms for $250.00.
This was amazing when I first got it. But this was a different story once bub hit 1 year the straps slide and move
Straps are really bad once bub is mobile and moving around. as for comfort the padding is great. Seat design is good aesthetics wise but not practicality. It’s pretty easy to instal so no issues there.

Baby loves it. He enjoys more the car ride because of this lovely car seat. It's very comfortable plus it has a spot for the baby bottle when the baby starts growing. I definitely recommend it.
Purchased in December 2018 at Walmart for $299.00.
It's a heavy comfortable car seat and the kids like it. But it has not bottle stander. It's easy to install and clean. The kid can sleep nicely at this seat.

Use your money elsewhere.
Hate this car seat. Straps always get twisted, my babe is always so uncomfortable and sweaty, he even got his had stuck down in between the fabric and plastic. Do not recommend at all you are better off spending money on a higher quality seat.

The main reason I bought this seat is because of the great safety rating in rear facing (4.7 out of 5). I also needed a seat for my son who is about to grow out of his capsule. I was originally thinking of getting a 0-8 car seat but was told that kids will not make it to 8 years in those seats and you will have to get another seat anyway. Plus those seats only allow up to around 12 mths in rear facing whereas These allow longer (up to 30 months) in rear facing which is safest for babies.
The isofix compatibility is really good because it ensu...
Perfect from birth
I bought this once my bub grew out of his capsule, best car seat! It’s so simple to install, either with isopod or regular belt method- we have both cars, so needed both. Beautiful vibrant colours, material is wonderful and plush. Bub seems extremely comfortable and very happy in this car seat.
We had this car seat professionally installed and it sits firm in the car. It is well padded and cosy for our little baby who quickly out grew the maxi cosy carrier. Seems relatively easy to clean (however we did scotch guard prior to using). Our bubby falls asleep quickly in her seat and looks very comfortable.
Easy to install and use
Both my partner and I have this seat in Grey installed in our vehicles. I really like how easy it is to machine wash and how comfortable my child obviously is in it. It looks great and we bought both car seats at different times on sale for $329.00. I did quite a bit of research and we are very happy with this purchase. We also decided to buy the Safety 1st Stroller which has been amazing as well.
Bub is comfortable with the seat. Easy to clean and you can remove the insert if bub is too big already. bub is safe and secured. Not compromising safety with the quality. Reasonable price. Highly recommend this to family and friends. I have this professioanally installed to ensure that it was installed correctly
Excellent car seat for the value
This seat is pretty amazing for the value, with the isofix its so much easier to install then a standard seat, our baby always manages to fall asleep when in it so muct be prerry comftable, all the covers come off to clean easily, we love it so much were buying another one for our second car
We purchased ours on special at baby bunting recently for my 4 month old as he outgrew his capsuel. I love their 4-8 year booster seat my daughter uses so decided to go with this brand for my son. It is 0-4 so easy to use. Very comfty and the safety features are great!
November 29th 2017 Update: Good car seat
Purchased recently and happy with it. We originally were after another brand but they had no stock so we chose this one and my daughter's boster seat is this brand so i knew they were good .
Easy to install. Easy to use. Great safety features. I do feel it should lay back a bit more specially for newborns but luckily our little guy was able to suppprt his head when we purchased.
An amazing car seat
The Safety 1st Summit AP is truly fabulous. We have twins so we are able to compare against other products and this out ways any other seat. It is super comfy, our little one loves it. She falls asleep peacefully. So easy to install takes no time and has multiple positions you can switch to as they get older. Will last her until she is 4 yrs old which is value for money. Also has padded cushioning around the shoulders so the belts don't dig in and breathable fabric. Very easy to clean in case they spill. We have nothing to fault on this seat.
Questions & Answers
I have bought the safety first car seat 6 months ago and the strap is fraying around the clip making it unsafe. Can I return the seat?
Bought my sons seat just over a year ago and noticed that the straps are starting to fray around the bottom where stitched and also on the strap holding the buckle. Has anyone else’s started doing this
Can you use this in a car without isofix?
Yes, It is compatible for both isofix and regular
