I researched and researched a great car seat for my 14m old daughter as she had outgrown her safe and sound capsule. I didn't specifically have brand loyalty, but the britax roundabout kept coming out as the highest rated and best priced car seat, with high safety rating. I live in NZ and the national recommendations are to keep a child rare facing until 2y. Unfortunately in NZ very few car seats are able to stay rare facing for that long. Britax roundabout does and as I was traveling to America I was able to pick one up for a third of the price as any NZ bought car seat. Installation was the only down side and the only reason for why I gave a 4 rather then 5 star rating. As I don't have isolatch in my car, I use the seat belt for installation and found that I couldn't latch in the seat belt by myself and had to get my husband to do it. Though as we only have one car we don't have to take it in and out all that often so it shouldn't really be a problem. I imagine with isolatch it would be very easy to instal. The other down side is that when you have to alter the straps (ie when your child gets bigger) the yoke is very low down and quite difficult to get to. On a positive note, my daughter is extremely comfortable, and has fallen asleep every time we get in the car now. She seems relaxed and hasn't cried once in the car since moving into the larger seat. I am very pleased to have the side impact protection and the addition straps for extra anchorage. The seat is well padded and the material is non offensive. We also have a very very small car (Diahatsu Charade) and it fits very well and still allows us to put the other 2/3 of the back seat down if needed (which we do need to do frequently to squeeze in the stroller). On a practical note; I did consider buying a car seat initially which was from birth and converted into a booster, but decided against it. We are hoping to have 2 children about 3 years apart. This means then that when our second child is born they can use the capsule for the first year, after that year my daughter will be about 4 and more then likely have outgrown the roundabout car seat and require a booster only. Further down the track as my daughter is out of the booster it will still be ok for the second child. The great thing about the Britax range is their reasonable life length allowing for this "staging" of car seats. Overall my husband and I are very happy with our purchase. The only thing I don't understand is why cant you buy the britax roundabout model in NZ?

I like britax products and their quality, however, I'm disappointed with this seat. Though is says it can rear face up to 40lbs my 25lb 32in daughter is already feeling the squeeze. Compared to my other seat (chicco) it seems shorter in the leg room area. Also, no matter how much we tighten the install feels loose to me even with the latch system. Our britax infant bucket was nice and snug, but this installs loose. I also have issues tightening the straps, I try to follow the "pinch test" so that she's nice and snug but I pull really hard and she still feels loose in it, I've rethreaded it in hopes to correct it to no avail. My baby is on the lean side but she's not tiny at all. Anyway, I'm sad to say we weren't happy with this and will get a second chicco nextfit instead.

Good Car Seat

By Lisa636

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

We bought the Roundabout 4.1 convertible car seat a few months ago, and we've been happy with it after we made some adjustments and an additional purchase from Britax. It would be nice if the car seat reclined further, so we didn't have to use a towel or pool noodle to level it in the rear-facing position. Also, including the rebound bar or a longer safety tether would have been nice since we have an Outback, and the tether it came with is not long enough. We purchased these additional items though, and we've been very happy with the car seat ever since.

Easily Adjusts between Grandchildren

By lamerex4

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

I purchased this car seat to use when my grandchildren visit. They are 3 years and 1 year. The harnesses adjust very easily and installation into my vehicle was a snap. I was pleased to read after I ordered it, that Britax rates lowest on toxic fumes emissions. I hope I never have to find out how it holds up in a collision but I trust it will perform as it should.

Feel Safe on the Road

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

I have had my Roundabout 55 for 4 years, my daughter is a few inches shy of max shoulder height and I will be purchasing another britax product. I feel like it is a safe carseat.

So glad we went with Britax!

By GeraldnKelly2001

from Chocowinity, NC, United States

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

We purchased (2) Roundabouts, (1) Onyx and (1) Silverlight for both of our vehicles. We've only been using them for about three weeks, but we LOVE them! Simple to install, adjust, and our little angel loves them too! We spent a couple of months researching and by far we felt that Britax gave us the best options for the money. Can't go wrong with this one in our opinion.

Best of the Best

By Mommy808

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

Bought this when my baby was 2 years old and was used until she was 6 1/2. Having the Britax name, I felt confident at all times that my child was in the best of "hands" and protected as well as can be. Got my money's worth and it still looks new...to be passed on.

Great

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

For the price, it's a great seat. A little tedious to install. Frustrated by the tether for rear facing. Daughter enjoys it and seems comfortable.

Best Bang for the Buck!

By allishay

from North Carolina

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

We just bought a boulevard and were needing a seat for a second vehicle. After much debate and ready the reviews, we opted for the Roundabout. It is the same frame and basic design as the boulevard but the straps have to be threaded and the extra head restraint/cushion isn't there. I would highly recommend this seat to anyone and am considering buying another one already for the grandparents to use!

Solid and safe

By fozzie

from Pasadena, CA

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

The seat is well designed, with just enough customization (height, recline, etc.) to be practical. My favorite aspect is how well it can be used with the various other Britax products, especially for air travel.

Nice Looking, but painful for my son!

By diluvsjgj

Comments about Britax Roundabout G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

I do like the look of the car seat, but the buckle digs into our sons thighs leaving marks! Even with the "soft pad" you place by the buckle.
