I don't know what's happened to the maxi riders but I think they've changed something in the way they make them because the older ones still score really well. Have a look at when yours was made Pouts, it might be ok. From memory the crep website lists maxis bought before a certain time in addition to more recent ones, and they score differently. Ours are old and they still have a good safety rating.
In fact my just turned 7 year old is STILL in her maxi rider, with the 5 point harness and all . I don't want to take her out of a seat altogether but I also don't want to now spend a lot of money on a booster seat that she won't use for long so I'm not sure what to do!. She still fits in the maxi but a lot of her friends are not using seats at all so of course she wants to be like them but it ain't happening....

If its for 4 years or older- try the hipod Boston. Rates as one of the 2 safest, ds looked comfy when we tested it out. It's also on sale at target at the moment ($60 off) so about $80. We have purchased a H harness for it as its safer again. That was $70.

This is also a good read re H Harnesses http://infasecure.com.au/safety-info...ory-harnesses/
When DD outgrows her inbuilt harness, we'll be using a booster seat with the lap sash seatbelt

Another fan of the Hi Liner SG for 4+ yo. You do need to roll up a towel behind it (is in the manual how to do this) to tilt it enough for sleeping or if the car seats are very vertical. Also bought it because it's one of the few with anti-sub clip.
