Amazing, Sturdy, Safe and Easy to use Car Seat!
December 30, 2012
When my son outgrew his infant car seat, we purchased the True Fit Recline in Abstract O's. We've been using the car seat for almost 2 years and love it! When my daughter was born we were given a Britax Chaperone. By the time she was 6 months old, it was getting too snug, so we started looking for a convertible car seat. Although we really liked the True Fit, I wanted to try something different. So, I started researching car seats and trying them in our vehicle. My top 2 choices were the Graco MyRide and the Britax Pavillion. When we tried the MyRide in our car, I was shocked at how flimsy the plastic was. And, no matter how tight my husband pulled the belts (we tried installing it with the car's belt and the latch system), it rocked back and forth. The Pavillion had a great install and we both really liked it, but at the last minute my husband decided he really didn't want us paying $200+ on a car seat. So, we went with what we knew and loved from the beginning! We bought the True Fit in th eButterfly print for our little princess and for the first time in her life, she didn't cry when we put her in her seat! Because my son was 1 year old when we got his seat, we never had to figure out the 45 degree recline, but with my daughter I didn't want her head falling forward, so we rolled a towel under her seat to get a perfect recline. The padding is great and makes the interior size of the seat more fitting for a petite baby. People have complained about the front harness adjuster when rear-facing, but it has never been a problem for us. We always make sure the belt is out when we install the seat and with the looped harness, we hardly ever have to loosen the straps. It is VERY easy to install and takes 2 minutes top for us to completely install it. We remove and reinstall our seats almost every day due to our work schedule. The lock offs are easy to use. The straps have just recently started trying to fold in the buckles on my son's seat, but they don't completely twist/fold and when we notice it, it takes only a few seconds to fix it. The plastic is very sturdy and strong. We have used our seats in an airplane, and although they are big, they do fit with the arm rest up. They also fit on our GoGo Babyz Travelmate.The seat is big, however it will last your child until they are at least 4-5 years old. My son is 2 1/2 years old, 32 lbs. If we chose to he could still fit rear facing and comfortably. Sometimes we put his in rear facing if my husband or I are just taking 1 child, so if at the last minute we choose to take our daughter out we can quickly lower the harness height (by pulling 2 tabs out and down) and go. If you are looking for a safe, easy to use seat and you have a spacious back seat, this is definitely an excellent buy!
Easy to Use Easy and Quick Installation Easy to use Lock offs Easy to Clean 65 lbs weight limit and tall shell Hard, sturdy plastic Made well
Won't rear face in smaller cars Wish it had a higher weight limit for use without the head rest Not made in USA

Love this car seat
June 5, 2012
I bought this same seat in black for my son, he's still in it at 3 years old and I liked it so much I wanted the same one for my new daughter only in pink. It's easy to use and comfortable.
Easy to clean. Easy to adjust straps. My kids never complain about being uncomfortable.
Every so often the belt buck piece somehow twists around the seat belt so it's facing the wrong direction. Not a big deal but its kind of a pain to try to flip it back around because the slot isn't very wide.

True Fit a tight fit
June 2, 2012
After much research into a good convertible car seat, other than the Britax, I chose this one. After reading it fits " compact " places better, I thought it would be perfect for the back seat of our Ford F150 truck. Too bad it needs to be rear facing because it wouldn't fit. It was pretty simple to install but I did have a hard time snugging it up. The orange piece of webbing gets in the way on the LATCH strap. No matter which way I tried, it would end up too close to the lock off & then I couldn't get it to lock off. The lock offs were confusing but clearly marked for illiterate people like me. The strap covers are nice & the pillow insert & buckle cover is awesome, especially for summer weather & clothing. The height adjuster is very easy to do. After reading the instructions like 3 times, I figured out how to release the harness when it gets too snug. The down side of that is when the seat's at the proper angle & snug enough to not move more than an inch at the belt path, you really can't get to the release button or pull the strap to tighten it. The inside of the seat is huge & my 17 month old at 24# & 33 1/2 in. Tall, still has lots of room. It's like a lazy boy for kids! I didn't care for the recline "foot", it was confusing to me but works when installed properly. We had to wash the seat cover the other day & that was so easy to get it off & back on. Hand wash only, but it was dry in no time. The seams on the fabric seem to be weak as they appear to be coming apart already but we'll see how it holds up & exercise the warranty coverage if need be.
Size is perfect for my long & lean baby Easy to adjust when not rear facing Lock offs & lots of instructions on it so you get it right 65# weight limit Nice fabric pattern & padding Easier to install forward facing than rear
Way too big for smaller back seats Tethering system for LATCH strap awkward to snug up Harness straps seem to twist a lot & very easily The whole headrest thing is misleading

This car seat was very easy to set up and install in our minivan. There is so much padding, that I am sure she is comfortable on our long trips that we take and it is very cute! Overall great buy and would recommend it to anyone with a young child as it converts as the baby gets older.

Love that we can ERF our 2.5 yr old in this seat
April 21, 2012
We were looking for a seat with a tall shell and this one just happens to have the second tallest shell on the market. I love this seat and the fact that we can keep our 2.5 yr old daughter rear facing in it and that she will remain rear facing until she gets within an inch of the shell or hits the 35lb rf weight limit. right now she's only 27 lbs so i'm guessing that she'll be 3.5-4 before we need to forward face her! The only thing I would change about this seat would be to increase the rear facing weight limit to 40 lbs and to raise the harness adjuster, it's in an inconvenient place where i have to stick my hand between the vehicle seat and car seat to adjust it but I would rather do this than forward face my child =)

Great Seat!

Very happy with the easy of us of this seat. Easy to install, uninstall, clean, adjust, etc.! Daughter fits in it wonderfully. Purchased one for our son as well (her twin) in a different pattern. Originally bought safety first AlphaOmega elite from a wholesale club and HATED IT!!!!!! Spend the extra $$ for your sanity and your baby's safety!

BEST car seat
March 15, 2012
We went through several carseat trying to find one we loved for our son and when we stumbled upon The First Years True Fit carseat for him we were in love and I knew that as soon as my daughter outgrew her infant carrier this is the seat we would be buying.
Easily removable cover for washing. Never have to rethread harness (when adjusting straps or when removing cover). Seems to sit a little more reclined than most forward facing position so child can sleep confortably without head falling forward. Very wide and comfy seat with removable pads so works well with baby up to 65lbs.
A little difficult to snap the cover back down when installing rear-facing.
