Yep side impact. It was done because of Consumer Reports inaccurate test of the same seats.

I know- it just is scary!!!! These seats move all around and then almost fall over on their sides! It is shocking to see and think that could be your baby in that seat!!!!!

Re: Crash Test Footage of Top Selling Infant Seats

I know! Thats why I'm not really a fan of infant seats. Too many steps. First the base, and thats gotta be installed right, then the carrier has to be snapped into the base and be in there correctly. Plus I don't really like 'rebound' or 'cocooning' as they call it, where it flips upwards, even though it is 100% safe and actually helps, it just doesn't LOOK pretty.
