2: How good are child seats without isofix mounts? Will they be able to handle daily in town commutes which involves mild braking.
3: Found LuvLap child seats on amazon for group 0 and 1 with decent reviews. The description shows it as certified per European Standard. Below is the link. Any member has used this one?

With the ceremony coming up fast, will appreciate some quick help
While others can answer 1 and 3, my response for 2: Any child seat is good. I have been using one without ISOFIX for the past 6 years and have been no trouble whatsoever, and I have been involved in panic braking situations. So, dont worry on that account. Its great that you have chosen to gift a car seat to the kid

No complaints from her as she slept the 45 mins drive to the hospital, with her mom by her side.


I have been using the below mentioned seat since my kid was of 2 weeks, and she is very comfortable in it.
Plus it also doubles up as a carry cot.
Till the infants neck becomes steady, I believe this is a better option rather than the one you have shortlisted (I went through the same conundrum before getting a car seat, but finally bought the one below)

Toyhouse car seats arrived yesterday but I returned it. Because the product they sent to me did not have isofix attachment. It was clearly mismatch from the pictures present in Amazon website vs what was delivered.

Went to Nexa dealership today but the accessories person had gone for leave. Will check again on Monday.

Default Re: "Child Seat" for Babies & Kids

Need help on getting car seat belt extenders.

Got an infant rear facing car seat from MeeMee which will need the longer portion of the seat belt to go through the back while the lap belt will secure from the front.

while trying to fit in Spark, the seat belt seem coming short. looking for good seat belt extenders which I can buy online ( I am at Trivandrum, kerala and the options in shops are literally nill). Wondering if someone can guide me to any good option for extenders ( from the look of it, I believe that I will need an extender at the bolt side rather than the usually available extender at latch side)

Thanks in advance

Regards,
George V

Guys did anyone of you get the seat? I am planning to buy one for my daughter as she has over grown her infant seat.

That's when I saw this seat being discussed here. Unfortunately the Nexa showroom does not have one in stock to see or feel.

How's the seat?

Yes I had purchased a child seat(6k worth) for a friend, and will try to get you the pics before this weekend. I got it from a MGP store. You can check it at normal Maruti dealerships also. Atleast the ones in my city have a seat in display.

Unfortunately I'm still waiting. NEXA is least interested in sourcing the seat. They keep telling me it's not in stock even with the company.

Same issue with my Celerio Workshop Manual, Alto Parts Catalogue and Alto Workshop Manual. MGP dealer keeps saying it's not been dispatched.

I was frustrated by Nexa's response and decided to Buy one from Amazon from Non-Amazon Fulfilled seller, AmazinglyFab. Placed the order about 7 days back. Yet to receive the product. The model is Evenflo Maestro. The seller's website shows it's in transit and not yet custom cleared.

The car seat ordered from Amazon finally arrived today. Had booked it through AmazinglyFab seller for 13,430 Rs. The seller provided a tracking id through which I was tracking the status. They also provided the local courier tracking id once It got custom cleared. There were some anxious moments as it remained in "to be custom cleared" state for around 10 days. I had to drop an email to seller to which they were very prompt to reply. I would say the experience to be not bad. The packaging was just ok.

The seats are looking good and seem to have good enough cushioning. The cup holders are detachable. It has the latch system which should fix in my car's isofix attachment.

I am yet to install the seats in my car. Will share those pics later.

Is this amount including customs, delivery charge etc. Amazon mentions 16000 product cost + 21000 delivery charge. Would be good to know if you only had to pay 13430 overall

Yes. The amount includes everything. You have to choose the seller. I choose Amazingly Fab as they had better reviews than others. Also not that it will not be Amazon fulfilled. So Amazon may not take responsibility in case something goes wrong. Little risk in that way but it was worth taking. Because none of the products available in India had isofix in this range.

How old is your child? My son turns one in a few days and has out grown the infant seat we currently have. The minimum age recommended by the manufacturer (as per amazon product details) is 12 months so I'm hoping this will be OK for a one year old.

My kid is little over two years old. The seat fits him perfectly. There are 4 hieght setting for harness and my kid fitting in 3rd from bottom. So I guess one year old kid will fit as well. Please note that this does not have recline. Minimum weight criteria is 9 kg.

My evenflo maestro was delivered yesterday. It took 2 weeks from ordering to delivery. The seat looks and feels good and durable. The cost was INR12,850. The LATCH system can be hooked up to my ISOFIX and it seems to be more stable (or more "planted") than the usual seat belt system.
