    Nuna Pipa movement

    Hi, there - First time dad who just installed a Nuna Pipa in our 2013 Cayenne. The base is installed using the LATCH system and appears quite rigid - the seat hardly moves either side to side and front to back. However, when the seat is snapped into the base, I can rock the seat to side to side and that's giving me concern. The seat is well engaged (audible click and it will not pull up from base), but it seems there's play between the teeth and the bars that they engage. Does this sound normal?

    Perfectly normal and common for all rear facing only seats.

    Otherwise as the plastic in the base and seat expanded during changes in tempreature, you wouldn't be able to get them separated.
