Bought this 2 weeks ago and just got it, IT IS HEAVY but not super bulky. It fits in my 1993 Honda accord just fine with plenty of room for my 1 year old daughter. She loves it and actually took a nap in her car seat for the first time this weekend!! It was the easiest installation I've ever been through with a car seat and its very sturdy. It doesn't wiggle around like her infant one did even when it was properly installed- this bad boy isn't going ANYWHERE!!! I feel like if we were to get into a wreck she would be really protected too- VERY STURDY! there is enough room in the backseat for 2 kids to be back there with her so it didnt take up the whole back seat like I thought it would. THIS PRICE CANT BE BEAT!!!
