This seems like a good price but is forward facing so not very good. Children should rear face until at least 4 years old.
#2
Forward facing doesn't mean it's not very good. Rear facing is supposedly marginally safer, but that doesn't mean that forward facing is unsafe.
#3
I'm no expert, but my understanding is that we would all be better off with rear-facing seats (not possible obviously), and that 15 months rear facing is recommended (which.co.uk), and up to 4 years is preferred where possible. The latter seats costing a lot at the moment.

​Rear facing is many times safer than forward facing. In a rear facing seat the forces from a crash are transmitted through the child's entire back. In forward facing seats the head is thrown forward and can result in very serious injuries or death. Car journeys are by far the most dangerous thing children do but the fact is, if you are careless/unfortunate enough to be involved in a crash your child has a much better chance of survival in a rear facing seat.
if you knew you were going to have a car crash, and there was an 80% chance your child would die, but you could pay £200 and swap the seat to a rear facing one, giving them an 80% chance of survival, would you still try and save the money?

Good luck having a 4 year old rear facing unless you're happy for your kids knees to be in their own face

If you buy the right seat then there's plenty of leg room and they can always cross their legs if necessary. i know a couple of 6 year olds who are still rear facing perfectly happily.​

something wrong with you if you have your kid rear facing at 6 years old. How many years have kids sat forward from a young age and has never effected them but now because somebody tells you it's unsafe you have to listen to them. Health and safety gone mad

You can get rear facing seats for up to 18Kg (3 to 4 year old) for £100 so you are not necessarily saving money, the joie tilt, stages, everystage and steadi and advance are almost always on offer somewhere.
There are car seats that are actually specifically designed to let a child stay rear facing even up to 25kg / approx age 5 or 6 so the child will be comfortable. Including

I know, I mean it's not like all the bangs on the head you experienced "effected" you.

​It won't be long before it becomes a legal requirement to stay rear facing until at least 4 years old.
And there's nothing wrong with me thanks, just keen to keep my children safe. Yes, children have been forward facing for years, but thousands of them have been killed or injured in that time. We spent years driving cars without seatbelts or airbags, but most people appreciate the benefits of having them fitted. The evidence supporting the safety advantages of rear facing is overwhelming. Choose to ignore it if you wish, but you cannot argue with the fact that if you are involved in an accident a child in a front facing seat is more likely to die or have serious spinal injuries. if you're happy to take that chance then good for you.

People just aren't well informed that is not the same as health and safety going mad:
Road accidents account for a large number of deaths and injuries each year in Great Britain. Figures published by the Department for Transport show that in 2011, 2,412 CHILDREN under the age of 16 were killed or seriously injured on the roads.

Shouldn't adults sit rear facing too if it is safer?

I haven't tried to save the money. Our children have the Cybex Sirona and two of them rear face. Our eldest is nearly 3 and front faces because he hated rear facing and he was getting too big to do so. These seats are only comfy for rear facing if your child is happy doing it; otherwise it's an unpleasant experience for everyone.

I'm sure that your example was illustrative, but you can't really be claiming that rear facing increases your survival rate in a crash by 60%, can you?
