Product Description

The Marathon Convertible Car Seat is an excellent choice for getting your family where they need to go safely and comfortably.

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.

Comments about Britax Child Safety 1011449 1011449 Britax Marathon (G4.1) Convertible Car Seat Onyx:

Just purchased this seat for my 15 month old who grew out of his infant seat (Graco ClickConnect35 - great seat!). Installation was difficult, and even now the seat tips to one side. Will bring it to the police department for a second look. Overall it seems comfortable for him, but there is not a lot of room in the rear-facing mode. He's not tall but if wouldn't be a good fit for a baby that is.

Great seat!!

By Kayla1234

from Iowa, United States

Comments about Britax Child Safety 1011449 1011449 Britax Marathon (G4.1) Convertible Car Seat Onyx:

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.

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

from Cole Harbour, NS, Canada

Comments about Britax Child Safety 1011449 1011449 Britax Marathon (G4.1) Convertible Car Seat Onyx:

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.

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.

    Comments about Britax Child Safety 1011449 1011449 Britax Marathon (G4.1) Convertible Car Seat Onyx:

    The following is a review of my recent experience with Britax. I purchased the seat from Babies R Us, but the issue is with the company that made the car seat.

    I recently contacted Britax because my daughter's car seat cover started ripping on the seam shortly after we purchased it in 2014. I never got around to contacting Britax because it first it wasn't that bad, and life got busy. Over time the hole great and I decided it was time to contact the professionals to ask for help.

    Their response was that they wouldn't replace the cover despite the fact that it started ripping shortly after purchase because I'm outside of the one year warrenty.

    I have stood behind Britax for years because of the quality that I received from the first 4 seats that I purchased, (this one was my 5th) I would still be using them if they hadn't expired, and they still looked like new when I retired them.

    Every time a new parent has asked me which seats to purchase I have ALWAYS recommended the Britax product. However, having to buy a new $70 cover even with the discount they offered is seriously a slap in the face after I have spent so much money on their products and encouraged others to buy them as well.

    I will no longer recommend the Britax brand to others because they don't stand behind what they make. A cover to a seat should last more then a year, and this one didn't even last that long. Shame on me for not contacting the company sooner, but shame on them for not standing behind their product.

    The cover flops all over the place, doesn't stay on the product, and it is ripping at the seams. When it all comes down to it, it probably isn't even safe.

      1st Convertible car seat success!

      By Mommy In Motion

      from Rochester, MN, United States

      Comments about Britax Child Safety 1011449 1011449 Britax Marathon (G4.1) Convertible Car Seat Onyx:

      This was our first convertible car seat for our first daughter. We got it for her when she was around 20 months. She needed to stay rear facing for a little longer because she was not 20#s at the time we purchased it. It worked really well and our daughter was very excited and pleased with her new seat! It was so easy to install and to switch back and forth to either of our vehicles when needed. This car seat is everything it said it would be and more! We just recently purchased 2 of the Boulevard seats for both our daughters since we do more traveling now (we moved and have more traveling to do now) and this seat will be our spare for grandparents. A person can't go wrong with a Britax car seat....we never plan to use anything but these seats! Thanks Britax!!! :)
