Need to change to quick release latch type clip!!
By Mama L.
from undisclosed
on February 19, 2021
I would give this a 5 star rating for everything except that you are still using the horrible old anchor clips instead of the new quick release latch clip. This makes it way harder to remove and put in another vehicle. So I had to return this before using!

Good seat but painful to install
By MikeyMike
from undisclosed
on January 6, 2021
Verified Buyer
I've had this car seat for over a year, and once installed it works very well and does it's job well. The problem though is the installation itself - I've had continuous issues tightening the straps to the actual seat of the car takes a lot of patience (angling the belts, using lots of strength) and can be very frustrating transferring the seat from car to car

Safe & snug comfortable car seat
By Deb0307
from Cleveland
on January 6, 2021
Verified Buyer
I am so glad I decided on this Graco 3 in 1 car seat. I have been selected because I did not like my previous, very expensive, name brand car seat. This time I did my research and read a lot of reviews. This one is perfect. My baby sits comfortably in it. The straps are easy to adjust for a safe snug fit. The clasp is of a good quality and snaps securely. The adjustable pad for my baby's head works perfect. I like the safety features of the seat and especially the leveler on the seat that confirms that the seat is installed correctly. The material is of a nice quality and looks nice and clean all the time. We actually bought two of them. Great purchase.

Good for price.
By Cjean
from New jersey
on October 2, 2020
Good quality for the price we paid. However, the adjusting strap is really hard to access especially with a wiggling toddler. Happy with the material, the secureness, and the ease of hooking it into the car. This is our car seat for Grandma's car but hesitate to recommend this as an everyday carseat.

We have 4, very good
By My D.
from Bama
on September 29, 2020
Verified Buyer
My kids are now 6 and 3years old and have been in these since probably 6 months old. We have two in each car. The only "issue" is that the main strap to lock them in place is pretty tough to tighten and loosen so only I (Dad) can tighten/loosen it. Regardless, these are much better than the other brands the grandparents got. I would highly recommend them. The cup holders are nice for the various toys kids always have. Kids haven't complained they're uncomfortable. Once proper fastened down, they're very sturdy. As the kids hit 3/4 years of age they're strong enough to unbuckle the 5pt harness; which is cool as they're typically mature enough to handle this responsibility. Size adjustments are great too. Buy these, or don't.

Does the job. Good secondary car seat
By anonymous
from Santa Rosa ca
on September 22, 2020
I bought this as a 2nd car seat
For my husbands truck. It fits well and I mostly bought it because I love my extend to fit car seat (but I wanted something a little less costly) I purchased this and it's okay. I would say if you want something safe and on the cheaper end then get it, because it will do the job. The buckle at the crotch seems short and digs into my toddlers thighs ( and she's on the smaller side)

Overall it does the job. If it's not your primary car seat get it. If it is and If you can afford a few more bucks get extend to fit it's much more comfortable for my baby.

New car seat was already almost a year old!
By anonymous
from Dallas, TX
on September 22, 2020
I ordered 2 of these car seats in late August 2020 and received the car seats with a manufacture date of November 2019. That is almost a year old. Car seats expire so I am losing out on time that they could have been used. If the car seats are going to be older when you buy them, it should be listed on the website as a warning that you don't how old the car seats will be until you get them. When you buy something brand new that will have an expiration, you don't expect it to be almost a year old when you buy it.

This is the 3rd car seat that I bought for my third child. Its really comfortable for them to sit in especially for extended periods. The seat is positioned well enough that it allows for the head to rest properly when sleeping and no bend forward. It comes in several colors and designs which the kids were happy about.

I bought these for our two little girls, ages 2.5 and 1.5. Our older girl started using hers rear facing at 8 months old, and 20lbs. It felt much sturdier than other car seats I had used and she looked MUCH comfier than in her Graco Snugride 30. We started her little sister when she was 11 months old and kept her rear facing until 15 months old. This seat has hit every single one of my expectations and is so cheap compared to others with the same bells and whistles. The only thing I wish it had is the inright latch system to get it in and out easier, but it's really not that hard how it is.

We bought this seat for my daughter, we transitioned from a portable infant seat to this seat when my daughter got too big to carry in the infant seat. The transition was smooth, she really seemed to like this seat much more. Putting the seat in the car is relatively easy, moving the shoulder straps up is super easy, cleaning the seat is easy... the literal only thing I would change is where the release button for the shoulder straps is. You almost have to break your finger to release the straps. Other than that it's been a wonderful seat!

I have had this car seat now for about 3 years and it has held up super well. I used it with my first child when he outgrew his baby carseat and used it rear facing before switching to forward once he was big enough. Now we are using it with baby #2 who is currently 3 years old. It has held up well over the years and I would recommend!

As a mom I did loads of research on what was affordable but also safe. As safety is also and will always be my number 1. However we are also a one income family so I worry about price too! This checked the boxes for both. We had one with our oldest and she's still using it from 3 years ago, so it was a no brainier to get it for our youngest.
