Can anybody tell me about the Cosco Scenera convertible carseat? I'm thinking about purchasing another seat that will allow Alexis to rear-face for longer than her current Britax (she's almost eighteen months) and I can order a Scenera online but I don't have the option to check it out in person so any personal experience or advice would be great!

We have one, it is our travel seat. I use it in airplanes because it is narrow and light.
It needs a pool noodle or towel when installed rearfacing and iirc, the limit isn't that high, weight wise.

I definitely wouldn't use it as a primary seat if it can be avoided. I've installed it RF in several different cars, one was a breeze and the others were miserable at best.

We have the pink one in Dan's car, because it was cheap and she doesn't ride in his car often. I was expecting it to be crummy since it was cheap, but it's actually really nice. I thought it was pretty easy to put in. We had to use a rolled towel to get it to the right angle, but we've had to do the same for her infant seat & the more expensive convertible in my car. I have no complaints about it!

@Kemma: I guess it depends on how big your LO is? We considered the Scenera but ultimately went with the Evenflo Sureride 65. It's a little more expensive, but the height and weight limits are much higher so it'll likely last until our LO is ready for a booster. Here's the Scenera specs compared to the Evenflo specs.
