Jane Grand review£240.00
This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE 44/04 to be sold as suitable for children from 9kg to 36kg. But in our own tests, which are conducted at higher speeds and forces than the standard requires, in Group 1 mode the Isofix connectors broke loose during frontal impact crash testing.
The results of this test are so poor the test score is automatically downgraded to 0% and this child car seat is classed as a Don't Buy. Jane has told us it identified and fixed the fault but, until we can be assured that no car seats with this fault remain on sale, we'll continue to score it as a 0% Don't Buy.
