Safety turns easy, now from birth


The Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus is a baby and toddler car seat which offers state-of-the-art safety performance and the convenience of the 360° swivelling seat, from birth to approx. 4 years.

The AxissFix Plus combines top safety performance, by complying with the latest i-Size car seat regulation (R129), and a 360° rotation to offer you the best ease of use ever! The ISOFIX system enables very easy and safe installation, and the seat offers rear-facing travel up to approx. 2years (87cm) for enhanced head & neck protection. Additionally, the AxissFix Plus can be used from birth (45cm) thanks to the cosy enveloping inlay and grows with the baby up to approx. 4 years (105cm). It will take only a few seconds to secure your babay/toddler as a result of the front-on access, and the switch from rearward to forward-facing can be achieved with a simple rotation of the seat.

Found it easy to install and my little one is safe and secure. The fact that I can turn the seat to face me while putting her in is fantastic and I now linger have to twist my lower back trying to get her in! Tried other similar products in the store and this was by far the easiest and I think the most comfortable! Another friend highly recommended this too.

There is a minimal difference between seating up and laying position.

Wonderful seat, until...

By 

from Nottingham

Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

I have the AxissFix. It's a wonderful seat. Really easy to fit, totally secure with the Isofix and Top tether (if your car supports it). Fully adjustable and easily reclinable. Easy to get children in and out of it without wrenching your back.

HOWEVER... When your child hits is strong enough, and figures out they can press the grey strap release button on the front of the seat (right in front of them) you are in for a world of pain! My toddler is a boy of 2 years and 4 months and has now figured this out. He hates having the straps on, and no matter how tight will pull the straps, he can now press the button and lean forward to release the straps enough to get his arms out of the shoulder straps! On long motorway/A-road journeys, this is a nightmare - especially if the seat is fitted behind the driver and there isn't another adult in the car to notice!

Maxi-Cosi's response is not ideal. They have told me to distract the toddler by singing to him! There is no fix for this! They do not recognise it as a problem!

Really pleased with the AxissFix Plus

By 

from Cambridgeshire

Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

Iv had this car seat for my toddler for about a year now. It has helped me to be able to get him in and out of the car a lot easier than a car seat that doesn't swivel. It's easy to install and move from car to car. I'm very happy with this product. We do occasionally have the issue of when he falls asleep his head comes forwards, I just gently push his head back and that's where he stays. It's easy to get him out when he is asleep, I don't tend to wake him up when trying to get him out of his seat unlike other car seats I have had.

Excellent car seat, does what it says!

By 

from Sheffield

Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

We have a 7 seater car with floor storage and as such as unable to use a carseat with a leg on the isofix base. We opted for the maxicosi AxissFix as it was important to me to be able to keep our son rearward facing for as long as possible.

As a small baby (up to the age of 10 months approx) we used a baby carrier carseat on a Isofix base which also fitted to our travel system and then switch to the Axissfix once he became too heavy for this. My son is now 2 years and 5 months old and we are just turning his Axissfix to forward facing as he is now over 87 cm. (hence me being on the website for instructions and seeing the other reviews) My son now measures 90cm and I am hoping to get another year out of the maxicosi before we swap up to a 123 seat.

The swivel action on the seat has been excellent in terms of getting an extremely mobile and objectionable toddler strapped in safely and also encouraging him to develop independence climbing in and out of the car himself. The adjustable headrest and tilt have ensured his comfort on longer journeys which we make often and allowed him to sleep safely. We have had no issues with his head flopping although I understand that with much smaller babies this is more of an issue.

Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

My son is 2 and 1/2 and have had this seat for over a year now, and its great. He's comfy, plenty of room, the swivel to get him in and out is great for my with a wriggly toddler. Did have an issue after a few months where the locking mechanism on the straps broke, but the seat was replaced straight away with no issues at all.

  • Swivel

Cons

  • Too small

Best Uses

    Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

    I bought this for my son as he quickly out grew his Maxi cosi pebble and this seemed the safest and easiest next option growing with him until he was 4.

    He is 21 months and has out gown the straps which slide over his shoulders making this unusable and unsafe. For the cost this is absolutely rediculous! I would not recommend this car seat to anyone looking for something to last beyond two years!

    Good features, but potential risk to baby from head flopping

    By 

    from Bristol

    Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

    I bought the car seat when my second son was 4 months old, as it was the only isofix car seat that would fit in my car. I have been a loyal Maxi-Cosi customer since my firstborn and after much research thought this swivel car seat would be great in easing my back problems when lifting my baby. However, as with other reviewers I was so disappointed to see that the seat just didn't recline enough when in the rear facing position and as expected my son's head flopped forward when he was asleep. I was so worried, I contacted Maxi-Cosi and provided photos to demonstrate what the problem was, but they were not helpful at all. There was nothing they could do.
    Unlike other parents, I have not returned the car seat but carried on using it and my son has got used to it a little bit and doesn't flop as much now. Given his age, I know he can breathe and would change his position if he became 'choked'. When my firstborn was 9 months old he changed to a forward facing Pearl and his head also flopped forward, so I'd been through the panic before. We reclined the Pearl every time he slept and intend to do the same with the AxissFix once we change to forward facing, this helps with the head flopping a lot! I don't know if this is a problem with all car seats or not, I can only say that I've had problems on both the Pearl and AxissFix. It is worrying and certainly more so when they are so little. This needs to be addressed by Maxi-Cosi if they are selling car seats for newborns upwards where the baby's head flops forward. At a very young age, when they cannot control their neck/head, this could cause a suffocation risk. I assume Maxi-Cosi has done their research on this?
    All in all the car seat has some great features, but this single issue of the baby's head flopping forward in the rear facing position means that I have some serious concerns with it and would not happily recommend it to my friends.

    Disappointed

    By 

    from Sussex

    Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

    My 7 month old loves the car seat when she is awake, but her head flops forward as soon as she sleeps! So dangerous! I purchased because of the recline positions but it does not recline enough. I'm trying to return to where we bought it but didn't put it in car straight away so had it for s few weeks before we put it in car. It's really dangerous for my little one. I'm now stuck with what to do. Would not recommend.

    Terrible

    By 

    from Aberdeen

    Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

    Like the other reviews, I regret buying this top of the range seat. Our 4 month old's head is constantly falling forward with the minimal amount of vehicle acceleration ( too large for the insert). The recline at its maximum is insufficient to overcome the countering effect of the back seat inclination. I am trying to get Mothercare to take this seat back and exchange for an alternative. Very disappointing as the seat is otherwise great.

    Awful!

    By 

    from Stoke

    Comments about Maxi-Cosi AxissFix Plus:

    I bought this thinking it was one of the safest and easiest to use.  Seems fine when my daughter is awake but when asleep her head flops forward, very unsafe. I would not recommend and very disappointed. Trying to return but not getting very far.
