I've used this seat rear facing and forward facing with LATCH. Used in several different vehicles (Pt Cruiser, Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Corolla, VW Jetta)

Don't have any pics in-car of forward facing though. Listing likes/dislikes in categories so hopefully its easier to read.

Forward facing with 2.5 year old
Likes:
  • easy to install rock solid
  • harness height is easy to adjust. Has an easy-to-remove cover over the back of the seat where the harness straps are
  • very easy to loosen/tighten with child in seat
  • compact, yet still offers good room to grow
Dislikes:
  • 40lb weight limit
Rear facing with newborn
Likes:
  • easy to loosen/tighten with child in seat
  • infant insert cradles perfectly - no head movement/flopping
  • infant insert stays in place, yet is easy to remove when needed
  • adjusting harness strap height can be done without uninstalling
  • loops on the side of the seat hold the harness out of the way and make getting a squirmy baby in much easier

Dislikes:
  • tricky to install well RF. Have to use a pool noodle/towel
  • you have to puzzle together the clip before you can buckle it. Hard to do with a small child because there isn't much room between the chest clip and the buckle
  • a little tricky to be sure the straps are snug enough, that's getting easier with use though.

General
Likes:
  • Lots of fun colors
  • very compact, fits easily in small cars, even rear facing
  • cover is machine washable
  • good storage options for the latch if not in use
  • Latch is easy to reroute for FF or RF
  • excess strap snaps together so it doesn't get in the way or lost
  • easy access to the latch path to make sure its not twisted and to help with install
  • all three of my children *could* use it (4.5, 2.5, newborn). Oldest child is at the maximum for fitting.
Dislikes:
  • tricky RF install
  • material of the cover might snag easily
  • puzzle clip
Pics:
straps are right at her shoulders


2.5 year old was measured at 36" yesterday, she was probably around 34-35" when this pic was taken


baby was roughly 8.5lbs and 21" at the time of photo

Little add-on comment after 3.5 months of use. Now that I have it down, I can get a rock solid RF install in seconds and buckling/tightening the straps on her is super fast. Just took some practice

Thanks for the update. The NHTSA Ease-of-Use rating for the Combi Coccoro (http://www.nhtsa.gov/nhtsa_eou/info.jsp?type=all) is 3 out of 5 stars (average) for both RF & FF. So, like you imply, "practice makes perfect".
