I ordered a Maxi-Cosi car seat from Amazon the other day and it arrived today. I'm a bit uncomfortable about it: it wasn't in a manufacturer's box (just in a plastic bag inside a big cardboard box) and although it has all the tags on it, there's no user manual or anything.
Could anyone else who has bought one new confirm what yours came with? I'd at very least expect a manual (how else am I supposed to know how to properly install it?) and a warranty card or something.
Right now I'm leaning towards returning it. And not looking forward to that hassle. Am I being unreasonable?
Hahahaha! I bought a maxi-cosi for ds2 over 5 years ago. It's out of the loft ready and waiting for dc4 to arrive. I've just had a look at it - I didn't even know it had a secret compartment, and lo and behold, pristine instructions
I was lucky, the secret compartment in mine wouldn't shut properly, and it took a few months to find the secret sunshade.
What I didn't find out until I'd finished using it with my second child is that the handle could be pushed backwards for use as a seat when out and about at toddler groups and the like to stop it being rocked. I had no idea at all.
