Eh: front-back space. (Not a problem for us, plus the angle adjuster mitigates this.) Low sides. (Advantages, to be sure, but sometimes I want something a little MORE.) Difficult to remove cover. (Only "eh" instead of "hate" because I've only had to remove a Radian cover once! If I was doing it more than once a year it would probably be in the 'hate' category.)
Agree! Sent my son on a trip to IL's for a week, he took his HBB because there was no way they would figure out a radian. Kq from cs.o stayed with them after her accident last year, they have no idea how to install seats and don't care to learn. I figured my kid was safer in a properly used HBB than an improperly used radian.
