Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Installation with LATCH is excellent Excellent labels and instructions Harness adjustment does not require rethreading Adjustable crotch strap
The Inertia has some great features; I loved the simple lower anchor installation, anti-rebound bar, huge canopy, and no re-thread harness.
My infant is so comfortable, and thanks to the seat's reclining feature, her head never falls forward. I can drive without worrying about her safety! I also love the seat's rigid LATCH system. It makes installing and uninstalling bases a breeze -- something that has always caused a great deal of frustration in past experiences. It's affordable, as is the baby trend jogging stroller, with which this car seat is compatible.

What reviewers didn't like

Installation with vehicle seat belts is poor Has removable parts that are needed for installation with a seat belt Can be installed with too much recline, relying on mechanical features to move the seat upright during a crash
I had some dislikes as well: the confusing seat belt installation and adapter, puzzle buckle, and thin straps that are prone to twisting.
I could not figure out how to get the recline to work on the chair. Turns out the bar with the recline button isn't working.
