A little wide but overall great value
By MGill2118
from Grandville, MI
on July 9, 2021
I was lucky enough to be able to test the Symphony All-in-one car seat through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and it came at just the right time as we have been playing musical car seats between cars. My 4-year-old is content with the seat she currently uses, so we use it with my squirmy 2-year-old son. I mention squirmy because, I have found with other car seats it has been a struggle to get him to sit still long enough to get the belts tightened and pulled up through the shoulder however, this car seat is a game-changer. It tightens from the bottom, which at first confused me, but has easily become my favorite feature and it makes tightening straps fast and easy. I also love that it has the "freeflow" feature as cars can often get hot during MI summers and after long rides, he seems comfortable and sans a sweaty back which tended to happen in his last car seat. There are a few worries I have about the seat, one is that the crotch buckle doesn't have different notches to move it closer or further out/in although it fits my son fine, I could see it being an issue for a smaller child. Lastly, it looks nice and seems comfortable but it does run on the wide side in my van it works great, but if you have a smaller car I could see it taking up a large amount of space. Overall I think it's a great value for the quality you are getting!

* Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me withthis convertible car seat. This car seat came in right on time. My two year old son would fall asleep on his other cars seat and his head will not be still,this car seat gives him a great support. The cooling fabric is perfect for this current humid weather. He doesn't complain that he os hot. I had some trouble figuring out the harness, easy to pull up and down. My favorite features are the fabric and the reclining positions.

At first look this car...
By MrsCamieT
from Houston, TX
on July 9, 2021
At first look this car seat looked a little bulky but in fact it is not. It's on the lighter side, was easy to install however o did have a hard time tightening the anchor but my husband got it just fine.
My son is still rear facing and he fit extremely well he's tall for his age. I like that the cup holders have an elastic side so that different sized cups can fit but my son also puts his snacks in there so he couldn't do that.
I like how the straps pull from the bottom I don't have to worry about them scratching my sons neck. I don't like how the buckle at the bottom sits pretty high and it cuts into my sons stomach.
I really like this car seat and the fabric how comfortable my son is on short and long trips.

A good 3 in 1 carseat!
By ComfortableCarSeat
from undisclosed
on July 8, 2021
My daughter is 15 months old, so I only tried the seat rear facing. It was your average install using the latch system (meaning never super easy but also not crazy hard). Overall this is a good value for what you are getting - a safe convertible car seat with some extra features! It's going to take up about the same amount of space as other seats in the same class (it's not slim and probably won't fit in the middle of two other seats).
The cooling fabric is a new feature for us, we haven't tried any seats with this yet and I was a little bit not believing it would work, but it definitely did. I'm always worried the cool air isn't getting to my daughter since the seat is rear facing and there aren't any vents over her head, but the fabric definitely helped keep her from sweating (we just had a heat wave in NY).

I have two favorite features - 1 is that it clearly shows on the straps where the buckle should go and 2 - is how easy it is to adjust the shoulder straps - like nothing I've ever seen before in a carseat! It also says on the buckle where it should go.

The harness was super easy to adjust - another great feature because it pulls from by the legs and not the shoulders. I've always found that it was hard to get the straps to the right tightness and this seems to work so much better!
The cup holders are already installed and do not come out (which is great) AND the one side stretches for larger cups!

Although the seat feels lighter than other convertible ones, I don't love that the plastic feels "cheaper" than other seats we have. I don't know how else to explain it other than that. I don't feel unsafe using it, it just feels cheaper, but it could just be a lighter weight plastic they are using.

The directions are pretty straightforward and the seat has a nice spot in the back where you can store them which is a bonus!

Comfortable & Secure
By MamaGutz
from Lawndale, CA
on July 7, 2021
I was lucky enough to test this product out in the newborn stage, toddler rear-facing, and child booster seat and all three kiddos loved it. My seven year old thought it was comfortable enough albeit too clunky. My 2.5 month old fit right in though I felt like she was way too small in it. However, my 2 year old is absolutely loving her new car seat. She's still rear facing but you can tell she's much more comfortable sitting in it. We just took a two hour trip and when we took her out of the chair she wasn't sweating like she normally would have been. The fabric is definitely more cooling than other car seats we've tried which is a huge win for us, especially in the summer. It was easy enough to attach to my car with the LATCH system and it surprisingly was pretty lightweight. My toddler had an accident in the car seat and we were quickly able to remove the fabric, throw it in the wash, and easily reattach it to the seat. This car seat is a major win in our family.

So Far I Love It
By CathyJ
from Oberlin, OH
on July 7, 2021
When I first got this car seat I was a little concerned. For starters you can see small bits of styrofoam at the lower corners and the boasts of "rollover tested" had me questioning just how safe it was in other crashes. Thankfully, we haven't had any accidents while using this seat so I can't say anything to that, but it does review well safety test wise so I feel absolutely comfortable putting my kids in it. If you don't read any further, the best part of this car seat is that it tightens at the bottom. Over three years of pulling on my kids shoulders and finally straps that tighten at their legs instead. Not their crotch, the back of their legs near their hips. This one feature has made me love this car seat as much as any other seat I've used. Lately we've had some 80-90 degree days and nobody is comfortable in the car. The AC helps a ton and we all manage just fine on longer trips, but I imagine being strapped into a car seat in somewhat like having a blanket wrapped around you. So far, my almost four year old has not complained once about how hot he is in the car in this seat. Might be a fluke, but I will take this as a win for the car seat. He is more than happy to tell me when he has a complaint about anything. The headrest is very easy to adjust as it's just a pull handle at the top of the seat. I both love and don't love that the shoulder strap adjustment isn't linked to the same handle. It's great that they are separate and I can actually pick which is closest for him, but I do love just making one quick adjustment. The reality is though I adjust it every couple of months, not every few days and I prefer the closeness to the convenience. I haven't yet had to clean the fabric and hope I can keep that up so I don't know how easy it is or isn't to get off. He loves the cup holders because they have a fixed side and an elastic strap side so his cups go in easily and stay put. This car seat wasn't on the top of my list, but it's worth taking a second look and maybe putting it on yours. I'm so thankful that I was able to test this through the Stellar Product Testing Panel because I had no idea such a great choice was out there. The only reason I knock a few points off this seat is it is wide. It's amazing for comfort and now that I'm not beckoned to sit in the back seat with the kids I don't mind, but if I had tried to fit two of these car seats and myself in the back seat I'd have been pretty squished. If you have a wide car, definitely check it out.

Some great features, but one major flaw
By Mamaof2
from Cumming, GA
on July 7, 2021
Right out of the box I found the Symphony All-In-One Convertible Car Seat attractive and simple to navigate. One of my favorite features of the Symphony seat is the FreeFlow cooling fabric and extra padding that make the seat comfortable yet cool, even in the humid and hot temperatures of the South. I have another Evenflo seat with the same fabric and I have loved it. I also loved some unique features of the harnessing system. There are visual reminders on the harness to position the shoulder straps at shoulder level and the chest clip at armpit level; it's always nice to have these important safety reminders to ensure a good fit every ride. The Symphony harness also loosens and tightens at the hip attachment point instead of at the shoulders like other car seats I have used before. I really liked this feature and found it easier to adjust the harness to get a good fit at the shoulders and hips.

My biggest complaint about this seat is the inability to adjust the crotch buckle. Without a crotch buckle adjustment available I felt like I couldn't get a good and safe fit for my toddler. The crotch buckle sat about 2-3 inches in front of his body, allowing him to slide down and not have proper positioning in the seat. I have a toddler and an infant, so I love the versatility of an all-in-one seat that can grow with my children and can be adjusted to fit either child, however, I do not feel like this seat provides safe harnessing for either of my children. I'm grateful to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me withthis convertible car seat to test.

Looks good but a little awkward
By TaliA
from West Fargo, ND
on July 7, 2021
I was given this convertible car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and I was not disappointed. My older two kids (5 and 3.5 year olds) were even arguing over who gets to use it (we eventually settled on installing in my husband's car so they both get a chance to use it). Overall, I love the look of this car seat, it's comfortable for my child and, most importantly, safe - so it definitely checks all the main boxes. I love that you don't have to re-thread the straps as your child grows, but rather just pull them up. I also like that feature because it's easier to have different kids sit in the seat without having to do too much work to change for height differences. However, I would have liked there to have been neck guards on the straps for comfort, as we all know that if you put your own on, it usually voids the car seat warranty - so I feel like this should always be included.
I also liked the cup holders - instead of being a hard plastic cup holder all the way around, instead they have an elastic band on the outside - I appreciate this for when you're trying to make multiple seats fit in one row, and also makes it easier to clean (I don't know about you, but my kids always put animal crackers and crumbs and toys, and I always dread cleaning their cup holders as you never know what you're going to find - at least with the elastic band that stuff will fall out on the floor to vacuum more easily).
Overall this is a nice looking car seat that's easy to use, looks great and is comfortable for the kids.

A Florida mom's dream come true
By AnnieandG
from Pensacola, FL
on July 6, 2021
Living in Florida, this car seat is truly dream come true! Our car gets so hot, especially in the summers and I was amazed that the seat fabric always felt cool to the touch. All other car seats I've used I had to cool the car before being able to place my daughter in the seat. She is 15 months and still rear facing so doesn't get as good of airflow. Again the breathable fabric has made a huge difference in keeping her cool while driving. I love that the car seat will last her through the booster stage so we can keep benefiting from cool, comfortable rides. She was already out of the infant stage when we got it but not sure I would have wanted to use it for a newborn. It feels like it wouldn't be snug enough even with the infant insert but that's just eyeballing it. One downside to the seat is the instruction manual isn't terribly clear. In fact, some of the pictures looked like they maybe updated the car seat but kept the pictures of the previous model. He did figure it out but they ought to fix that. Overall a great car seat, especially if your little one gets hot while driving! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending this convertible car seat for me to review!

Wonderful seat!
By WillisFam
from Marshfield, MO
on July 6, 2021
While we personally used this only as a forward facing seat, we LOVE it! Our little frequently falls asleep while riding and never wakes up sweaty. The seat is also very roomy and fabric is still plush! The only con is that it is pretty wide from side to side, so may not work with multiples in a compact car space. We were able to review this seat for the product free as part of the stellar product testing panel.

Great carseat
By Lizzy42
from Mount Airy, MD
on July 6, 2021
So I had my 2 girls both try this car seat rear facing (18 months and 4 years). Just like other car seats, it's a little wide, but both kids seemed comfortable in it and fit well. It was nice and easy to adjust between the two of their heights, and the seatbelt slid so that you didn't have to reconfigure the straps! One cool feature I really liked was that there are patches on the shoulder straps that tell you where they should be on your child, which I think helps make sure parents are positioning them correctly! Never have seen that before. Part of what helped this is that the straps don't extend from the shoulder piece, they extend from the side legs so once you have it set to the right place, it's easier to get it back each ride. The fabric was nice and cool, it's summer so a great time to test that. Getting in the hot car the seat was not hot to touch and my daughter did not mention heat on the seat at all. She also wasn't sweating when I took her out. Overall I think this a great safe car seat and would recommend it! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Great car seat
By Mintykicks
from Oakland, CA
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat as part of the stellar product testing panel. I ended up using this car seat in the forward facing position for my almost 3 year old. I did not like that for rear facing it only had one recline position. My son loves the car seat in forward facing, he always asks, "do I get To ride in my new cars eat?". It was easy to install. It took time to get used to adjusting the straps, as you have to pull out from the crotch buckle instead of the chest clip area to loosen the straps. Otherwise, it was easy to transition him to this car seat. I love the cup holders as they have an elastic strap to stretch to fit any size water bottle or sippy cup.

Wow! Safety and Comfort all in one!
By Mellody
from Kansas City, MO
on July 6, 2021
I received this at seat from the stellar product testing panel in exchange for my honest review of this car seat, here was my experience: I have a small for his age, three year old son and have been looking for a comfortable, safe and quality car seat for him. I have tried other car seats in the past but the Symphony All in One is just what I have been looking for! This car seat is definitely high quality and sturdy but it is also super comfortable for my little with nice padding without making him too hot in the 90 degree summer heat! I also love the the cup holders! This car seat was easy to install and feels very secure which is the MOST important thing for me! I love that my son will be able to use this car seat until he is 110lb as it converts as your child grows. This is a great price for such a quality car seat that you can use for literally years! You will definitely not regret getting this for your little one!

Mom of four approved!
By Momoffour
from Bremen, KS
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat as part of the Stellar Product testing panel. We have a Honda Odyssey and 4 car seats/boosters to fit. This seat was easy to install, fairly narrow and easy to fit next to another car seat not rear and forward facing. I tested it in all modes (rear, forward, booster) and I didn't have a single kid complain. The breathability of the fabric was great and the fact that you can adjust the harness height with just one hand and no re-threading is fabulous. Overall, this is a great seat and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a long lasting, multi-kid/mode car seat.

Good value for quality convertible car seat
By Ebaker115
from Woodstock, GA
on July 6, 2021
With three little girls, my husband and I are always on the lookout for safe, affordable, car seats. The fabric on this car seat is dreamy and definitely helps keep my little ones cool. I also love how the car seat includes a bottom and lower back cushion. I know sitting in these constricting car seats must be tough, so the extra comfort is definitely a plus. The installation was not ideal. I'm pretty sure the manual that arrived with the car seat was for another model, as a lot of things didn't add up. The harness straps are easily adjustable, once you get the hang of it. Unfortunately, this wasn't spelled out in the manual, so it was confusing trying to figure out the first time. I would recommend this car seat, as long as you're aware that the installation process isn't the most streamlined. The fabric is great and I know it will transition with my kids for years to come. A great value buy! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Not slim but a cooler ride
By texasmama5
from Mapleton, UT
on July 6, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat. This car seat comes with several features, it's well built, good quality, and seems to be a good value for the features included. My favorite feature was the easy to adjust harness and headrest. I have three children of various heights who all need to be in a five point harness and this carseat made it easy to switch the harness height and headrest height to ensure a proper fit for each child. Just a quick tug on the harness and it slides to the right position and the headrest has an easy to move handle. Other features we liked were the dual cup holders, the cooling fabric, and the ease of switching the recline position. The cooling fabric did seem to help compared to other car seats we have in our car. The biggest complaints about this car seat included the hassle it is to switch from the LATCH system to the seat belt installation for front facing. We switch car seats often to grandparents' cars, etc and this car seat is a bit more complicated on the install. The other complaint is that it's fairly wide. Since we have three in car seats, we need slim car seats to fit three across. Because our other two car seats are narrow, this one fits but three across of this car seat would not fit. However, if a cooler ride is top priority, this is a great option.

By bmh8051
from Lorain, OH
on July 6, 2021
I received this car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My first impression taking this car seat out of the box was that it was a nice looking car seat. It was wider in the seat than our previous seat, and the fabric was mesh like and layered so I could see how it would keep my child cool. It also felt solid enough for me to feel like my child would be secure and safe. Once I got to trying to adjust the seat for my child though, I was less impressed. The seat only has 3 recline positions, so he was layed back a little further than I had him In Our seat with 5 settings. I also had to read and reread the instructions to figure out how to adjust the head rest and shoulder straps. They adjust separately from one another, while our previous seat had a 1 step adjustment. The latch system belt didn't feel super attached to the inside of the seat, it just came out and went in a different set of holes for front vs rear facing and was held in by a plastic loop. The latches themselves were just the metal hooks instead of the plastic ones with the buttons, which I find inconvenient in my car because they were hard to unlatch as my hooks are set pretty deep into my seats.

Cool car seat hard setup
By Whitney
from Daphne, AL
on July 5, 2021
I received this convertible car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. Upon first glance I really liked the aesthetic of the car seat. One of the features I was most excited about was the Freeflow- cooling mesh fabric, which did feel comfortable and cool to the touch. Living in the south during the summer you want anything that can help keep your baby a little cooler. I, honestly, have noticed a difference in how he isn't getting as hot as he was in his previous car seat. However, to even get to that point we had to go through the installation. In my opinion, the installation was a nightmare. Mine has the Secure Right lower anchor connector, instead of the Quick Connector anchor that I'm used to, and this connector took both my husband and I forever to attach to our vehicle. We do not need to take the car seat in and out of our vehicle a lot, but when we need to it is definitely going to be a pain. The five point harness is really easy to use and the shoulder straps look very comfortable on him and do not seem to rub into him like some have. Overall it is a nice car seat. It does what it says it is suppose to do! I just wish it was easier to install.

Features I haven't seen anywhere else!
By ahardison
from Fuquay Varina, NC
on July 3, 2021
This is the only car seat I have ever seen that came completely put together right out of the box (cup holders and everything)! That was awesome. While checking it out before install, I noticed some really cool features I also hadn't seen anywhere else. The harness straps have sewn on reminders of where things should sit for a safe fit (shoulder level). I also love that when loosening the straps, they loosen from the bottom instead of near the shoulders! If you've ever tried to tighten straps with a child sitting in the seat, you know that it can be super tough to get shoulder straps to tighten at the top, but when they tighten from the lap area, there was less that got in the way! The headrest adjuster was really simple to use as well.
I was excited to try this car seat because of the cooling fabric that is advertised. We live in the south, where summers are brutal. My kids are very hot natured and no matter how much I blast the AC, are usually sweaty on their back after a ride in the car. I can honestly say that my toddler was not sweaty after a 30 minute ride in this seat on a 90 degree day! Not sure if it was a coincidence or due to the fabric, but I'm excited to keep using it!
Only downsides to this car seat for me were the colors (black and red, we tend to use more neutral or muted colors) and the placement of the manual. At first I thought it didn't come with one, but it is tucked into a compartment on the back of the actual seat! Kind of clever for storage, but I could see where it could be easily missed!
We are so thankful to have received this car seat as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and are excited to see how this car seat grows with our kids!

Comfortable Ride
By KelseyL
from undisclosed
on July 3, 2021
The manual for this car seat was very clear. I could easily read through the features and set up the car seat safely. I like the lower anchors options as the seat belt option always makes me nervous it will accidentally get undo. It also has a nice weight and height requirement for keeping your child rear facing longer if that is your goal. My daughter was very comfortable in this seat and the cooling fabric is nice in these hot summers! I would recommend you have a larger vehicle or you are only trying to sit one car seat in the row because I did find it to be a little wide and bigger then other options out there. That being said my daughter seemed to like the seat design being as it was. The shoulder straps are a little tricky to get adjusted since you have to pull both out at the same time but I was able to get a good fit once I played around with it. Overall I would recommend this seat for anyone with a spacious car or someone who is in a hot climate for the cooling fabric. Thanks to Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

We have owned this seat for 2 plus years. No only is it easy to install, safe for our daughter, and can be used through many stages, it also is completely washable. I have cleaned vomit out of it on multiple occasions and it always comes out good as new. Let's be real, parenting involves a lot of vomit.

This is a very easy to use and seems to he safe and comfortable for kids. I used this for my son and got a lot of use out of it. The only thing I would change is I would make it easier to take off washable parts. You just feel safer washing thing especially in the summertime

Safe, Happy, Comfortable Kids!!
By PaigeK
from Paw Paw, WV
on May 26, 2021
This is one of the best car seats I've ever purchased!! I know that my child is secure and safe in this one. It is also very roomy and comfortable for them, and grows with them. I love how you can recline it back so they can rest a lot easier and better. Also the headrest part adjusts to keep their head safe and comfortable as well. It has little slots on the side to hold the strap pieces making it easier to get them in and out. The only downfall I didn't really like was the cup holders, unfortunately the cups will not sit well in them and kept falling out. Also I want to mention it is a little heavy to lift, personally I don't mind it but I know some may. But other than that I absolutely love this car seat and the fact that it keeps my child not only safe but comfortable and happy as well. This is my favorite brand of car seats and we have owned quite a few! I most definitely recommend!!

Hard to clean
By AndreaM
from undisclosed
on May 26, 2021
We love the car seat. Its great for safety, size, functionality, and the length of use. What we dont love is when its time to clean it. Its an ordeal. You have to unscrew the cupholders to even remove the covers. Then what about getting to anything that has fallen down into the bottom cracks of the seat (small snacks like cheerios, goodfish, french fries, etc.). Its bearly impossible without completely disassembling the whole seat. Even using a hose to spray it out hasnt done the job. This would be one thing I wish was different.

Car seat Review
We absolutely love this seat! The ratchet style straps to hold down the seat are so easy to use. No more sitting on the seat to get it strapped down tight enough, just connect it and tighten it down and you're on your way!
Converting the seat from rear-facing to forward facing is as simple as pulling the ratchet straps through the different holes and adjusting the reclining position of the seat. Not as complicated as many of the seats we have had. It's not something we have to do often, but it's nice that it's not a hassle to do it.
We also really like the independent adjustments for the shoulder straps and the headrest. They ensure a perfect fit for the child. I was a little confused at first, but as soon as I found out how to adjust the shoulders, I was extremely impressed.
I was concerned about the elastic bands on the cup holders at first, but they do a great job of holding the cups in, and they're so much easier to clean! All of the fabric portions of the seat can be removed easily for cleaning, and with a 2 year old, that's a wonderful feature! We have had 5 or 6 different convertible seats in the last 4 years and this one is my favorite so far!

Best of the best!

I have owned a few different car seats over the years for my kiddos, but hands down this car seat is one of the best we've ever owned. The car seat is a bit bulky - but we have plenty of room in our larger SUV. There are so many great things about this car seat. I love that it can grow with them from infant up until older. It has many great features on it, the tilt is great for really young kids so you don't get that head bob if they nap in the car. The installation was super easy and this car seat is very secure. I love the design of it they are well protected all around which is a huge plus. There is plenty of cushion and it's very comfortable for them. It's easy to buckle my son in and easy for me to take him out. Very pleased with this car seat, highly recommend.

Very nice car seat!

Finally a car seat that has a crank for tightening the seat!!! My biggest struggle is being able to tighten the car seat enough for it to sit sturdy and safe in the car. It's always a struggle putting the correct pressure on the right spot to be able to tighten properly. This crank makes it so much easier!! It is by far the best and my favorite feature. I wish there was a bubble level on the seat to let you know if the seat is level or not. The seat seems extremely comfortable and my very large (99th percentile) toddler fits comfortably. Fabric is soft and the foam is firm but cushion-y. I like how easily the straps adjust without needing to be re-thread. The buckle is a little bit difficult to undo but I actually like that so older children won't be able to unbuckle easily. Overall I'm extremely happy with this car seat!

Symphony for a Honda Pilot
By eevvveee

I got this car seat in hopes that it will fit nicely into the Captain seat in the second row of our Honda Pilot 2021. And thankfully, it fits!
As with any car seat, I took the time to carefully read through the directions for installation. It took me about 15 minutes to understand how the seat works. Installing it is very easy and I just love that the seat clips "crank" to adjust the tightness - this detail is so helpful.
I also love that the cup holders have elastic bands to adjust and create a "slimmer" car seat. Usually I think cup holders make a car seat bulky, but this design works for me!

I'm not sure this car seat would work well in a small car? It also seems like the seat had my son sitting higher. If he put his legs up and straight, his feet is on the upper part of the driver's or passenger seat.
A minor tweak, if you bought this for a Honda Pilot - when installing the seat, the headrest get's in the way. So I had to take out the headrest, flip it backwards and put it back in. It's not a deal breaker, but something to know.
I also had a hard time figuring out how to make the straps tighter.
Generally, I'm happy with this choice as it is comfortable and my son happily sits with no fuss! Win!

Awesome Car Seat!

The Symphony Elite car seat does not disappoint. The design expands on Evenflo's already great products by adding a ratchet style anchoring system that allows you attach the seat anchors and tighten with one hand! Gone are the days of putting all your weight on the car seat and trying to tighten the belts to get a secure fit with the anchors! Just attach and use the ratchet style tightening system and the car seat is solidly in place! The level guages ensure that your child is positioned just right! Thank you again Evenflo for attention to the small details!

Great carseat
By Rodeo2323

Love this carseat so far! The fabric and padding is nice and easy to clean. Love the color and design. My favorite feature is the ratchet style connection for the LATCH system. It is SO much easier to tighten down than any of my other car seats. (3 kids) No more crawling in and kneeling on it to make sure its tight. I feel better knowing it is secure and won't shift in the event of an accident. It's also easy to disconnect and move to another vehicle if necessary. The only con so far, and it might not be for someone with one or two other kids, is it is a larger carseat and doesn't fit side by side, 3 in a row in the back of our truck. Works fine if you have captain style seats or only 2 car seats. Overall very very happy with this seat. Would definitely recommend.

Best car seat ever!

Hands down the best car seat I have owned! First, straight out of the box it's extremely easy to install. It has a bit of weight to it. The colors match my car interior perfectly. There is also added cushions to the sides and head for added support. Also, I love that this will grow with my daughter. The recline can be adjusted as well as the head. The extra cup holders are a huge bonus. My daughter can put her cup in one and her little Knick knacks she can't live without in the other. The straps are extremely comfortable and my daughter enjoys getting in and getting buckled in. The design is very well thoughtful I can put 3 car seats next to each other. And not sacrifice any room or comfort. All children are very happy and comfortable while being safe. The quality is fabulous. The fabric is breathable and washable. I have taken it out to wash and it washes great with no fading or shrinking. It still looks brand new. You can actually feel the safety and security with the added cushions and foam. I feel very safe putting my daughter in it. I never have to buy another car seat again. This will grow with her until it's time to stop using car seats/boosters.

Great Seat! Too bulky & not easy installation
By Vahonie
from Virginia
on January 7, 2021
It's a very nice seat. It's just too bulky (wide) for my liking. My daughter seems to be comfy in it and even rests well. I love the quick release for the latch though. I do however recommend that you have this installed and reviewed by a professional. I do not think the install was easy nor quick. With this being my 3rd child, I still didn't feel confident that I installed the seat correctly. There are too many options for the seat to be strapped in. I worry that if people don't install the car seat correctly then they are jeopardizing the safety of their child.

Top Quality Carseat!
By MCReddFam

We just got this carseat a couple of weeks ago and I love it already. The padding is far superior to the padding on my other carseat. I love that it has two adjustable cupholders.The latch install is pretty easy and foolproof, which gives me peace of mind. It is also nice that it doesn't expire for 8 years.

Love this car seat and would give 5 stars except for the fact it is extremely heavy. My 2 year old for the first time actually enjoys being in a car seat thanks to this one! And the fact that he can grow with it makes it even more convenient.

Super comfy
By Audrey91

I was so excited to get this car seat because in the picture it looked so comfy and padded. As soon as I opened the box and got the car seat out my two year old daughter fell in love. She quickly sat in it and didn't want to get up. It is super padded and comfy for her. We also have a grace 4ever and this car seat has more cushion for our daughter. It was easy to connect in the car and will be a great car seat for long trips!

I really like this all in one car seat. It has some great features and is made from nice, durable material. We liked it to much that we decided to get one for my parents as well, who watch our little one! You can literally use it from birth until they weigh 110lbs - wow! I love that it can convert to a booster as well. Overall the price point is there as well as quality. It's designed well and pretty easy to install. Overall I recommend!

Truly a fantastic car seat!
By Cinar
from Orlando, FL
on January 1, 2021
This car seat is truly fantastic and one of the best ones we have yet to try. We had been loyal to graco 4ever for our older son until we tried this chair and it has made such a difference in our daughters car rides. The seat was super easy to put together and made for a quick install. Manual had illustrations which helped the process. The seat is spacious yet snugs our daughter just right. It is super comfortable and she does not sweat in it (living in Florida this is a concern lol). The seat has great safety features including the head rest which makes me feel much comfortable when we drive far distances. Finally, the cup holder design is wonderful and does not allow for old food/milk to sit in it without notice which is genius in my opinion.

Overall I highly recommend this chair to anyone trying to give their kids a safe seat while keeping it comfortable and fun.

Very Comfortable
By Tabitha1316
from Ohio
on December 30, 2020
I'm using this with one of my 2.5 year old twins currently, but she'll be moved back to her other car seat when our newest addition arrives in March. The first thing I noticed is how comfortable this seat feels. It's padded enough that she doesn't feel like she's sitting on hard plastic but not so much that it could be dangerous in any way. It was quite easy to install, which is always a plus especially when you're about to have 4 kids. The infant insert will be comfortable and safe when this little arrives too. My only complaint is it's a bit wider than my other car seats. I drive a van so that isn't a huge issue right now, but if you have multiple car seats in one row you might run into problems. Overall I would definitely recommend this seat and can't wait to try it out with an infant too.

Our favorite out of multiple brands!
By JustAMom
from Maryland
on December 30, 2020
We have a different car seat for each child in our family, another evenflo and a graco. This is our favorite for ease of installation, look, and report of comfort. It's heavy and it's a bit bulky, but it fits well in our second row captain seat as well as passenger side of a full size suv bench seat (middle empty). I think the size is necessary for the safety and comfort aspects. The infant recline setting is the best I've ever seen for avoiding that scary head leaning forward that has happened in the past for us using a Graco seat installed and positioned correctly (even using the rolled towel trick). This seat easily reclined to allow the head to rest comfortably with no towel or pool noodle needed. Installing it forward facing for a larger child was a quick and easy switch, and that child immediately said they wanted this car seat, not their older evenflo model because this one was "sooooo soft and comfortable." The fabric really is smooth and soft. It appears to be durable and it wasn't hard to remove and replace the cover for those inevitable washings. We don't have a child quite big enough to use as the booster, but we transformed it to try it out, and it was simple to do and easy to install. This is by far the best seat we've had and I think we may purchase additional to replace our existing convertible graco seats. If you look up evenflo, you'll find they are consistently recommended for safety and high height/weight limits. This one is no exception. Buy it. You won't regret it.

Good quality

This car seat was very easy to install. The material is great quality. Our son is still rear facing but still looks comfortable now that we have upgraded him to this seat. He will have it a long time and be able to grow into it until he no longer needs a car seat!

Rock Solid
By tege0005
from Minneapolis, MN
on December 22, 2020
This is by far the most solid installation I've been able to get from a convertible car seat. The ratcheting strap system, once you figure it out, is the best I've used. I can't imagine a system that works better. It's better than the pulley-assisted style that I thought was the gold-standard.

The LATCH anchor attachments are also a step up from the competition with the pull-cord release mechanism vs the usual seat-belt button style system. It allows you to push down hard on the anchor to latch it without risk of pressing the button and releasing the clip during installation.

An interesting feature is the "infinite slide" shoulder straps. Unlike other convertibles, the shoulder straps are independent of the lap belts, which allows them to slide up and down freely by simply pulling them out and then up or down. No more peeling off the entire car seat fabric to re-thread the straps once your little one grows enough for the next notch.

The seat overall seems well-built and very sturdy. Even the cupholders are great, as they are semi-circular in shape with an elastic band on one side. Much better design than the hang-on style that inevitably end up under the front seat.

My only slight negative is that the seat is very wide.

This car seat works well for my almost 3yo. The car seat was super easy to install and the headrest/chest clip was easily adjustable. It is one of the wider car seats but other than that we love it and our child fits safely in it!

This seat works great and is easy to use. The cover wasn't too terribly difficult to remove and wash, so that's a plus! I'm very happy with it.

Not impressed
By LaurenL
from Scappoose,OR
on December 11, 2020
This is a pretty basic car seat. I must say that I was a little disappointed with the install... it was not easy to cinch the seat it tightly in a rear facing position. It took me about 45 mins to get it to the point where I trusted the tightness to put my child in it. Might be a bit of a design flaw with the system but the angle to pull the strap tight did not work well since it is right by the side of the seat where the cup holders come out. I also am used to the higher end evenflo models but we purchased this as a second seat. I believe you get what you pay for and this was a much cheaper option and it showed. I hope it's easier to install as forward facing the next time. I would not really recommend this seat.

I purchased this car seat for my moms car and she loves all the padding it has, My son rides super comfortable. It is a big size car seat but we have plenty of space in her SUV so we didn't mind it's size. We know it's worth it for my 2 year old, He can now take comfortable naps. As far as the safety of the car seat... I think it's great just like other car seats.
