I was recently in a front-end car accident in which the car (2006 Honda Civic) was totaled. My son (4 years old, 44 lbs.) was front-facing in the Marathon CS and sustained no injuries at all. He was up running around after the accident and complained of no pain in the days following. He only had minor seatbelt burn near his neck. It has been a week, and I am still in bed suffering from severe muscle spams and pain/whiplash. I am very pleased with this car seat and how it protected my son in the wreck. It is also very easy to install, easy to remove the covers to wash, fairly light weight. I highly recommend this seat. My son has used it since he outgrew the infant seat around age 1.

I've had these for over a year. After a couple washes the cover fell apart; the seems came undone and the edges all frayed. My girls are tall for their age and I got these because they said they would accommodate 49 inches. Kate is 42 inches and with the seat back all the way up the straps are just slightly above her shoulders. She will never make it to 49 inches and meet the "at or above the shoulder" requirements. When we installed these rear facing we had to put towels under them to meet the proper alignment, we have a Sienna so I'm not sure if that is a problem with our vehicle. Under the seat cover is a half inch thick layer of foam and that is all there is for comfort; that also breaks apart if you have to wash it. I did a lot of research and this is supposed to be a good product. If this is good I'd hate to see the bad. There is a sturdy looking bar along the sides that look like it would give pretty good protection; this perceived protection is why I'm giving it a 2 and not lower. The rest of the impact protection is just compressed Styrofoam. Those flaps on the head rest that look like they might surround the child's head are just for show and don't actually fold to cushion her head when she falls asleep. Every single time I put the girls in them I have to raise the chest buckle, adjust the shoulder pads, and untwist the straps. The Velcro to hold the straps to the edge is a nice concept but it doesn't line up and is worthless.

Ol' Reliable

Comments about Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat G4.1 (Pink Giraffe):

I love this seat! We have another brand in my husband's car and it doesn't even come close to this one. Installation is an absolute BREEZE and caring for the seat is super easy. We've washed the cover in our machine MULTIPLE times and it still looks perfect. Let me tell you, my kid has gotten sick on this seat, had accidents in it and eaten ice cream, slushies and all else while sitting in it. It has no stains, no smell and it's in great condition. My daughter has been in this seat since her first birthday (rear-facing and now forward) and it has never let us down. We've taken long trips and she has never complained about being uncomfortable. I recommend this seat to every single parent I know. Now if only I could find the seat cover and cup holder we used to have.....

Great seat!!

Comments about Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat G4.1 (Pink Giraffe):

We love this seat, the latches are really easy to install and remove. I've remove and put the cover back on numerous times for cleaning and it's very simple and easy to do. It's also a great extended rear facing seat my daughter is 2.5 yo and still has plenty of room to continue rear facing. I love the ease of adjusting the shoulder height. This car seat also fits great with other car seats for puzzling them in my backseat.

Comments about Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat G4.1 (Pink Giraffe):

We've had the car seat about a year now and the only negative thing is the white cording is fraying...other than that it's a wonderful seat.

Comfortable Ride

By Nicole32

Comments about Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat G4.1 (Pink Giraffe):

We love our marathon (except the colour - kiwi). Our daughter has sat very comfortably in it both rear facing and forward facing. The height adjustment is super easy. When we need to move the seat it is lightweight yet durable and the side bar is great for carrying from one vehicle to another. We chose the kiwi colour as it was bright and fun but dirty legs and hands (from dirt and food) quickly stained the seat and easily show. The seat is very sturdy and install is a breeze.

Just had an accident!

Comments about Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat G4.1 (Pink Giraffe):

Have had the Britax Marathon for about 2-3 years and just had an accident. We were rear ended on 95 at approx 60 mph and my 4.5 yr old is totally fine, not a scratch or ache or anything! I am soo thankful that we had a great car seat. It is also easy to transfer from car to car.
