Good value

We bought these for our twin girls after they grew out of their infant seats. They were easy to install we tried them in both vehicles a x3 bmw and quad cab dodge Dakota. They don’t recline as much as I’d hoped and so when they fall asleep it looks pretty uncomfortable.

Graco Sequence 65 Platinum
March 29, 2019
I love this car seat!!! Such an easy install, very easy to figure out which recline the seat needs to be on. Love the indicator that tells you if the seat is safe once installed. My baby absolutely loves this seat. She has hated her last two car seats and would scream and stiffen her body and fight me when buckling her. She loves this seat. No more crying or fighting. She’s excited to go bye bye. It’s very comfortable. Very happy with this seat and got a great deal on it too!

Preferred over Graco 4ever 4 in 1
March 28, 2019
Overall I am really excited about this car seat. We love the easy to use latching system, it makes installing between our different vehicles much easier. I am disappointed that we have had it less than a month and already have fabric pulling and snagging at the head rest. I don't believe the fabric is going to hold up on the headrest which would be only qualm about recommending the platinum edition of this car seat. We also have the Graco 4ever 4 in 1 in Matrix. Overall we prefer the sequence 65 platinum, the cup holders are closer to our son, the seat fits better in our Crosstrek, and the ez tight latch system is awesome for quick and easy install.

Easy install, easy ride!
March 27, 2019
My daughter really didn't like her infant car seat by another brand. Once we switched to the sequence platinum, she was so much happier. My husband installed it correctly very quickly and it has made our car rides much more pleasant. We love the way the straps adjust when you adjust the headrest. No more threading webbing. It's definitely a great buy!

Absolutely perfect
March 13, 2019
I purchased this item for my 10 month old who still could fit in her infant carrier but was getting too heavy to carry in the carrier. After lots of reading various carseat safety reviews and blogs, I was a little nervous about whether the EZ-latch that comes with the "Platinum" seat would live up to the hype. But it did! This carseat is a breeze to install with <1" wiggle room in all directions. Compact front to back even in most reclined (newborn) setting and fit into my 2014 Honda Civic rear facing with plenty of room to spare. I had to unlatch the carseat to adjust the recline angle and then once again, was able to tighten the latch using the EZ-latch super fast. Carseat is light compared to the Chicco Nextfit that I have in the other car but still has steel reinforced frame. I like the color/look/feel of the material on this seat but I also feel that the colorways for most of Graco's seats are a little loud for my taste. This neoprene type of material does seem to have the potential to pill or snag (i.e. on sneaker velcro) over time but maybe I might be proven wrong. I like that the cover is easy to take off in the event that we need to wash it. My 4 yr old sat in the seat also "just to see" and also found it comfortable. If I had to buy a seat again, I absolutely would buy this one again.
ProsEASY installation, light, compact, attractive
ConsCupholders are not optional so if looking to sit 3 across, might get in the way.
Best UsesCompact car, everyday carseat, or any situation in which carseat may have to be transferred between cars (travel, grandparents, babysitters)

It's okay
December 21, 2018
This is our first convertible car seat, so, I have no basis of comparison. I can say that it works as a car seat, but we are not able to use the recline options because there is no room for the seat to change positions. Also, in rear facing mode, the seat back was so high we could no longer see our little one through the mirror attached to the headrest in the back seat.

Great Carseat!!
February 20, 2018
This car seat is very easy to install with just a click. Making it easy to remove if we need to put it in another vehicle. We installed it rear facing for our little one and he loves how it reclines so he is comfortable. I love the color and look of the carseat. We haven't washed the car seat yet but it appears like it would be easy to remove the cover if needed. We received this carseat from the weeSpring Parent Panel and it is awesome!

Amazing features at an affordable price point!
February 17, 2018
Graco should just rename this seat "The Easy Seat".
So EASY to install. Car seat design and features have grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years, so it takes a lot to impress me these days when I try a new seat. Well Graco, you have done it again. On top of all the great things that come standard with Graco seats, this new "EZ Tight Latch" is the motherload of all car seat features I believe.
The EZ Tight Latch is the answer to no longer having to do the annoying saddle up your pants and crawl your already tired mama-bod into the car to knee the seat into place thing. It has a self-retracting design that automatically ratchets the carseat tightly into place with only the press of a button. LOVE LOVE LOVE that. Other things I dig about this seat: The Simple Safe Adjust Harness means no more taking the carseat apart to change the harness height, instead, it automatically re-threads itself to a higher height when you raise the headrest to the proper position for your kiddo. Kudos to the steel enforced interior frame. Double cup holders mean room for drink + snack, and I love that they are a part of the seat, not an add-on like some of our old seats (which meant they were constantly popping off, getting lost, spilling snacks, etc). Quick and easy (this is no joke) on and off seat cover so washing the thing is no longer a dreaded chore. The amazingly sleek and stylish infant insert (hello quilted headrest) make this seat look even more high end, I wish I could sit in it. And last but not least, a wide weight range of 4-65 lbs, + 10 year before expiration (whatt!! so awesome!!) means you will get many years of use out of this seat. Thank you Graco for once again blowing my mind with such a great product at an amazingly affordable price point!

Easiest install
February 17, 2018
I received this car seat as part of the WeeSpring parent panel. I was in the market for a new car seat for my almost 2-year-old, and could not be more thrilled with this product! I usually have my husband switch out car seats because of what a hassle it is. I decided to give this a try on my own. Thankfully, the EZ tight LATCH could not be any easier to use! The car seat snapped in in seconds and it didn't require me to get into my car to fight to attach it as we've had to do in the past.

My daughter loves it because it sits a bit higher than her previous car seat so she's able to see out the window. She's just a tad too short-armed to reach the cupholders but I know it'll come in handy when she's able to reach them. I adjusted the tilt and it was super easy to do.

I will recommend this car seat to everyone i know! The price point is great, the design looks nice, but most importantly, it's very easy to install and use!

Great seat
February 15, 2018
The seat is a pretty gray and I'm a sucker for gray, so I love it! I've been using it forward facing for my 4 yr old and she says it's comfortable. The seat came set up for rear facing, and once I figured out how to do it, I found it fairly easy to adjust the latch straps under the seat fabric for forward facing use. I haven't tried it rear facing with my 1 yr old yet. It has so many recline settings, which I played around with in the house and will be so amazing rear facing! Installing the seat was simple and I've never seen a retracting/locking latch before, so I admit I tried it out 3 times, just for fun. :) I haven't tried installing it with the seat belt yet. The harness was easy to adjust and doesn't have to be re-threaded, which is very helpful. The cover seems like it will be easy to remove for washing. I gave it 4 stars because the buckles tend to get lost in the seat fabric and under the kiddo easily and have to be fished out, compared to the seat brand I'm used to. Other than that, it's a wonderful seat! Did I mention how pretty it is? :)

Safety With Comfort
February 14, 2018
I was given the Graco Sequence 65 Platinum car seat to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

My first impression was the sleek, compact design makes the car seat quite attractive. The neutral color pallet, accented with quilted plush gives it a luxurious look and feel, but at an affordable price.

Before installing the car seat, we tested the Rapid Remove cover that lived up to the expectation of being able to be removed in 60 seconds. It was easy to remove and surprisingly easy to put back on. This will be convenient when accidents happen in the future.

Before installing the carseat, we adjusted the car seat to our son's preference, reclined for rear facing and the harness and headrest for safety. All three adjustments were easy, especially because the Simply Safe Adjust harness system adjusts both the harness and the headrest at the same time. This is convenient and eliminates the guessing and work of adjusting each individually.

Lastly, the EZ Tight Latch made installation easy in three simple steps. You simply release and attach the LATCH, then with the simple touch of a button you retract the LATCH and push on center of carseat to tighten. This easy installation left little room for error and left me with peace of mind. I left the car seat knowing it was properly installed and secured.

Overall, my son found the car seat to be comfortable and he loves that it sits higher. This allows him to see more while driving. He also likes the dual cup holders that are within reach and perfect for snacks, drinks and small treasures.

I would highly recommend this car seat to anyone who is in the market for a convertible car seat!

Another Graco Product You Can Trust & Love
February 14, 2018
As far as looks, we love the neutral colors and modern feel. The car seat is also very plush and comfortable looking. Our favorite parts of the car seat are the features that make the Sequence 65 Platinum both easy to install and easy to use on a daily basis. My favorite install features are the new EZ Tight Latch with EZ Tight Latch Retractor and the ball Level Indicator (as opposed to the bubble indicator). The EZ Tight Latch Retractor makes tightening the car seat base to the vehicle seat as easy as the push of a button! I found it much easier than the traditional means of tightening the latch by pulling a strap. I also think the ball Level Indicator is easier to see than the standard bubble indicator found on most car seats. We also love that the car seat has an easy-to-adjust 6-position recline and a 10-position headrest/harness system! The fact that both the recline and headrest/harness system can be adjusted quickly and with the push/pull of a lever/handle makes the car seat easily adaptable for our growing kids AND easy to transition between children if different kids need to use the same car seat from day-to-day. These features make it nearly effortless for us to keep our children comfortable and safe in their car seat. Also to note, we thought the rear-facing weight limit of 4-40 lbs and the forward-facing weight limit of 22-65 lbs is on par for other models of convertible car seats. We have not washed the car seat cover; however, we did remove it to test the ease of removing and found the cover easy to remove and loved that we did not have to thread it through the harness straps! Also, the cup holders were easy to put into place.
Somethings that may be CONS or simply a difference in preference:
Though I love the EZ Tight Latch System, my husband is not quite sure how he feels about it. He feels as though he might have more control over manually tightening the latch; whereas, I feel the opposite.
The cup holders are nice and are built into the design. Therefore, if you do not want to use cup holders, you don't really have the option to remove them without there being a hole in the design cover (because the cover is designed to go around the cup holders after installing them). Also, if you don't intend to use cup holders, including them in the design may take up some vehicle seat width.
Lastly, I did not see any height limit posted in either the instruction manual or on the Graco website for this car seat. Although I know it may not be required information, and people may know the child's head should be 1" below the headrest/handle, I feel like it would be helpful information to have the max height posted somewhere.
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this car seat.

-very simple to install
-harness easily adjusts
-sturdy, dark fabric (I have not washed it yet)
-2 cup holders for snack and drink
-comfortable design for sitting

Cons:
-only holds a child up to 65lbs.

A very good car seat
February 13, 2018
The Graco Sequence 65 Platinum is everything you'd expect in a car seat. As one of the most trusted car seat manufacturers on the market, I knew I'd be pleased with their product. It fits rear-facing 4 to 40 lbs (good weight limit) and forward facing 22 to 65. As an extended rear-facing mom I just love that I can still put my 3.5-year-old son in rear-facing!

The installation was standard car seat difficulty- that is to say, not the easiest, but also not the most difficult out of our experience compared to our other convertible and infant car seats. The instruction manual is easy to follow and includes many useful illustrations. We installed it both rear- and front-facing using LATCH. It took about 10-15 minutes each time to get it secure and tight. But once it's in, it's in for a while, so unless you need to switch it in and out of cars frequently, that shouldn't be too much of an issue. Adjusting the harness, recline, and 10-position headrest were all very easy with a simple lever mechanism and a level indicator.

It's a very attractive car seat with a soft fabric (ours came in a beautiful heather gray) and cup holders on two sides! My kids loved the cup holders as we've never had a car seat with that before. They were wide and deep enough to fit baby bottles and water bottles with ease and even our wide sippy cups fit well enough that, even though they didn't go all the way down the cup holder, they were still secure. The fabric is easy to remove for cleaning. My only complaint is the lack of an extra removable pad on the bottom center harness (crotch buckle). My son has complained of discomfort (on other car seats, but not this one so far) about seats that lack that center pad when he's in underwear.

If you're traveling with the car seat, you'll be pleased at its incredible light weight, making it easy to carry through airports. It does not feature a carry handle, which is a minor complaint, but the light weight compensates sufficiently that I'd chose that over a handle anyway.

Overall, a great seat!
Pros: Easy & thorough instructions; light weight seat for travel; high child weight limits both rear- and forward-facing fits birth to toddler with ease & extended rear-facing; two built-in & removable cup holders; soft & attractive appearance; easy seat adjustment to fit your growing child; easy to wash & remove fabrics.
Cons: no carry handle for travel; medium-difficulty installation; no crotch buckle pad; no harness belt paths to hold straps out of the way while your child is getting in/out of the seat.

Excellent Convertible Car Seat!
February 13, 2018
This is a fantastic convertible car seat! It was incredibly easy to install using the LATCH system. The instruction manual is well laid out and easy to follow. The instructions on the car seat make the process of installing the car seat seamless. It was easy to adjust the height for the headrest along with the harness straps and the incline to the correct position. One minor thing that would make installation even easier - I wish the ball that tells you if the car seat is in the correct recline was located on both sides of the car seat but not a big deal to lean over the seat and confirm correct positioning. We are rear-facing and excited that my child can rear-face up to 40 pounds with this car seat. My child enjoyed sitting in the car seat which seems very comfortable and well-padded and the two cup holders were perfect - one for a drink, one for snacks. We have yet to clean the seat cover but we did remove the cover and it was easy coming off and putting it back on. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this product.

Fantastic Car Seat!
February 13, 2018
I received the Graco Platinum Convertible Car Seat as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel and I am absolutely thrilled with it! This car seat is so simple to use. The latch system was so, so easy to install and it was also really quick. Normally I struggle with adjusting the straps and installing car seats, but there was no struggle at all with the Graco Platinum. The ability to adjust the straps just by moving the headrest without having to rethread the entire strap system was a huge plus. The seat feels so secure in the bucket seat of my minivan. The seat seems to be really comfortable for my son who is still rear facing and he loves having cup holders (although he normally puts his boots in them instead of drinks). I really like how safe the seat is, how comfortable it seems, and how easy it is to adjust. I'm really glad that I can use this seat rear facing until my son is 40lbs as well. I am so, so happy with this car seat and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone I know who will be switching car seats or having a baby soon.

Surprising Quality!
February 13, 2018
I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of this car seat. I have used a Safety 1st 3-1 convertible car seat in the past and this is what I can compare it to. First, the style is nice. The gray pattern is modern but blends in well with the black leather of the car. Installation was fast and easy using the LATCH system. It feels secure in its place and its nice not having to struggle to get the seat tight. My only disappointment was that there was not a level ensure the seat was placed correctly, but its not too big of an issue as my son is not an infant anymore. My little guy is under 2, so the seat is installed facing backwards. I didn't have to adjust the headrest, but it does move easy and will be nice as my little guy grows taller. The 6-position recline is amazing, as my son is very particular at the amount of recline that he has. The seat itself feels soft and comfortable but still firm and sturdy. The double cup holders are nice for my little guy to put his sippy cup, snacks, or most often toys. My favorite part of the seat design is how easy the seat cover comes off for washing. My son often gets car sick and the seat cover gets washed frequently! My past car seat has been a struggle to get the cover off despite it being removable and washable. Honestly, I wouldn't typically look at a Graco, but I am pleasantly surprised by the quality and design of this seat! It definitely seems to compete with some of the pricier brands. Thanks to the WeeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this product!

Convenience Dream
February 13, 2018
I was delighted to receive this seat from the weeSpring Parent Panel. Graco has addressed every annoying thing about our pervious Diono car seat! The EZ tight LATCH install was very simple and intuitive-it only took me a minute. I would have loved the EZ tight in our first car seat because as new parent safety zealots, we overtightened like crazy our first install. We love the fact that we can adjust the height of the harness without rethreading the straps! Let's face it, you never remember to adjust the height until you need to go somewhere! Moving the headrest and straps was smooth and not jarring for the kiddo. The other MAJOR plus is the fact that the cover comes off without uninstalling the seat and washes beautifully! Cup holders are a great fit for kleen kanteen water bottles and great for sunglasses and snacks too! The only con I can think of is that the color scheme is a bit boring and I would prefer a more water resistant cover. Overall, a well thought out seat for all the conveniences busy families need!

Comfortable and compact!
February 13, 2018
I'm so impressed! The Graco sequence 65 platinum arrived and my first thought was that it looked so compact! I felt the cushions and the sequence is very comfortable! I love that the sequence has two cup holders and there are so many recline and headrest positions that it was easy to get a perfect fit. At a similar recline, the sequence was slightly shorter compared to other seats we've owned. The sequence is also not as wide as other seats. The sequence also seems to be a bit higher so it was easier for my daughter to look out the window! The installation was much better than the old latch system car seats we've had! The sequence can be installed with a belt, or with their EZ tight latch. I installed with the latch, and it was quite easy. I think I got the seat tight enough, but I'd have to check with someone who knows better than I do! We've had other car seats that are so hard to tighten with the latch system so I'm impressed at how easy it was to just push down on the seat until tight. I watched the videos here on Graco's website and they were very helpful! Overall I'd recommend this seat! It is very well made for a lower price than most "luxury" car seats. It's very sleek and easy to use. I received this car seat free from weeSpring Parent Panel in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much! We are enjoying using the sequence 65 platinum!

Comfy, Easy to Clean, Installs Itself (almost!)
February 12, 2018
When I unpacked the Sequence 65, it looked very similar to our previous Graco car seats at first glance! I was super happy because I figured both seats would fit in each of our 3 vehicles.

This seat cover is a spongy feeling material (kind of like neoprene wetsuits which is really nice!), it washes well with a washcloth, and generally feels softer than the typical car seat covers! I imagine less staining as well for when you have road accidents or drink spills because of this foamy cover material. My daughter even commented on how smoothe and soft the cover was! I'm interested to see how it feels in our Phoenix summer heat, it feels like it may stay cooler! The side-to-side head impact padding also seems to be quite substantial which makes me feel like my child is better protected. This seat allows rear facing up to 40lbs, so if you were planning to forward face at or before 40lbs, you might consider this awesome car seat!

Now, about the install part. We installed forward facing for our 38lb, 3.5 year old. I played with both methods of installation to get a feel for this seat. When using the latch system, there is this neat little belt tensioner that when you fully release the belt and then press the tighten button, it tightens up the latch strap automatically for you at the touch of a button. I understand that this device is intended to make the install easier and foolproof, but I struggled the first few times. It does take some getting used to, but then you should be good to go after familiarizing yourself with it. I think that the tensioner may potentially limit the experienced car seat installer, but would be helpful for someone who has limited maneuvering room in their car or limited mobility/strength. The seatbelt path was straightforward and I had no problem with that portion.

I would recommend considering this seat and adding it to your comparison list for a few reasons: the footprint is not large, the seat is stable with thick and sturdy head side-to-side padding, and it is super easy to clean up (this cover removes quickly!) and The installation is straightforward. This seat/tightening system could be beneficial for individuals with limited mobility like my mother who has had a broken shoulder and recently had surgery on the same shoulder; she would love this system because it actually helps install itself. The other thing to consider is how long you want your child to rear face. If you don't plan on extended rear facing for your child (beyond 40lbs) then this seat is a great option to check out. Our daughter prefers forward facing, so it's perfect for us!

Amazing car seat with great features!
February 12, 2018
I received the Graco Platinum Convertible Car Seat from the weeSpring Parent Panel. The car seat itself is very nice looking and looks super comfortable. This was perfect timing because my 15 month old was getting a little big for her car seat that came with the travel system I got when she was born. I didn't want to transition her to the toddler seat just yet so I was very excited that this seat can hold up to 40 lbs. rear facing. I have always been very bad with installing the car seat and am embarrassed to say I always had my husband do it but with LATCH it was very simple to use and I felt that my child was safe. The car seat is very easy to use, it wasn't a hassle to adjust the harness at all. My daughter hasn't used the cup holder yet but I love that the car seat comes with it. Overall, the Graco Platinum Convertible Car Seat is absolutely wonderful and a great investment for your little one. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who is going to have a baby or has one already. Thank you so much to the weeSpring Parent Panel for giving me the opportunity to test this product.

Love this Carseat for our Toddler!
February 11, 2018
We were so delighted to receive this carseat from the WeeSpring Parent Panel. Receiving this carseat actually prompted us to finally change out our infant carseat for this convertible seat. We already own (and also just installed) the Graco 4Ever 4-in-1 carseat and actually found the Sequence 65 to be slightly easier to install. The latch feature was SO easy to install in my sedan that I literally had my husband double check to make sure I did it correctly (I did haha)! I love the look of the seat and appreciate that the headrest could be adjusted seamlessly. My daughter was so excited to take her first car ride in her new rear-facing convertible seat, we had such a fun time peering back at her in the mirror! I really appreciate how easy the instructions were and how well labeled the carseat and carseat base are. There are 6 recline positions, which really helps in adjusted our toddler to accommodate her long legs from being cramped up against the back seat of the car. As far as easy and functionality, the sides are low where I'm not hoisting my child up and over the carseat to get her in - which is great! The buckles are much easier than our infant carseat (brand was not Graco) and the seat seems really comfortable. I've been recommending Graco convertible carseats to my mommy friends all week!

Great Car Seat!
February 11, 2018
I'm reviewing the Graco Sequence 65 Platinum. It features adjustable headrest/shoulder straps with just the pull of a latch, very similar to other Graco models. This makes it super convenient to adjust without having to re-thread straps. The only strap that has to be re-threaded is the bottom buckle at the crotch. I didn't have to adjust this for my 24lb, 32" 18month old but it seemed to be an easy adjustment. All the straps were easy to adjust and tighten.
There are two cup holders but they don't hold my daughters sippy cup of choice. Her's are super wide though and don't fit in any other cup holder we have so it's not a big deal for us. I use it to hold toys or my keys as I'm buckling her in.
This carseat doesn't have anything to hold the straps back like the Graco Xtend to Fit which I previously purchased. I've gotten used to that so I kind of miss it in this car seat. Again, not a deal breaker.
I didn't have to remove the cover to wash but from my former experience removing seats covers,it won't be overly difficult but will still probably be a pain, because let's face it, it'll probably be covered in some bodily fluid no one wants to be wrestling with.
Now to the LATCH system. It has an automatic reel that helps tighten the seat once clipped in. They call this the "EZ Tight LATCH" and it's super nice feature! I broke my right wrist a few months ago so tightening anything is really difficult for me as I haven't built my strength back up. This reel makes it easier to get it tight. I still have to basically sit on the seat so it'll sink into the cushion properly but otherwise easier than any other car seat I've installed.
My only con about this car seat is the strap release button. It's the same as my Xtend to Fit and I really dislike it. You have to stick your finger in almost two inches and press a button to release. I know there are easier ways to make a release button. I shouldn't have to dig around for it. My husband has a different model Graco and it has a easily accessible release that you pull up on with minimal force to release the straps. It's out of the way of accidentally being hit and it's SO much easier to use. I believe that seat is called the Fit for Me 65. Graco, please work on making the release button as easy at the Fit for Me!
Overall I think this car seat is a great investment. I like the style and coloring is gender neutral. It seems to be super safe and has great head coverage. I like the part that shields the face in the event of a side impact.
I was given this product to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel but I would definitely consider purchasing this car seat next time.

Great car seat!
February 11, 2018
I was given this product to review by the weeSpring Parent Panel. I really like this car seat. It has a nice, clean look to it and is very gender neutral. There is plenty of padding to keep little ones comfortable and has extra seat padding that is removable for when little one is bigger. The latch system in this seat is great! No need to pull on the belt trying to tighten. To tighten the seat into place, simply ensure that the latch hooks are in place, and use your knee to put weight in the seat to tighten. This latch system really makes it a lot easier to ensure that the seat is installed tightly.

I tried both of my 18 month olds, who are still rear facing, and my 3 year old, who is forward facing, in this seat. It adjusts in every way very easily. The recline is easy to adjust so when rear facing the seat can recline more. The headrest is able to be adjusted very easily even when installed in a vehicle you can slide it up and down with one hand. The harness adjusts pretty much like every car seat and I had no issues with this.

My boys loved placing their cups and snacks in the cup holders and could easily reach to get their cups out again. If they make a mess in the seat, I'm not very concerned about cleaning the seat since the cover can be removed very easily. The Rapid Remove did allow the cover to come apart for cleaning much easier than previous seats we've had.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this seat. I love the color and look. The functionality is great. I really love that I feel like my kids are secured and safe while driving!

Amazing car seat
February 11, 2018
The design of the seat was wonderful. It was smaller and more compact than the seat we had been using. My daughter fit perfectly. Before installing it into the car we adjusted the harness and head rest to fit her. She loved it so much better than her old car seat. The installation was insanely easy and quick. Simply preset the recline, clip in the regular clip side, clip in other side and release the mechanism. Push down on the seat firmly and it's in. Super easy and safe. Our old car seat had easily removable cup holders. My daughter would pull them out and we would often lose them. This car seat has them locked in and my daughter cannot remove them. The two cup holders are great for having her snacks in one and water in the other. I have not had to wash the cover yet.
I received this product from the weeSpring Parent Panel to review.

Love this seat!!
February 11, 2018
I received this seat from WeeSpring Parent Panel to review! This seat is great, it's super easy to install, the ez LATCH is great and makes installation a breeze! The design is great, stylish and compact, I love how it doesn't take up a lot of space and I can comfortably push my seat all the way back without hitting the seat! I love how you don't have to take everything apart and re-thread straps, adjust everything on this seat is super easy! We haven't need to take the cover off to wash yet but I am loving the fact that I don't have to completely "undress" the seat to wash it!!! I would give this seat an A +++!

Features galore!
February 11, 2018
This happy face says it all! My 19 month old son, who normally does not enjoy being in his car seat, has been thrilled to have a new seat! I was given the opportunity to keep and use this new Graco Sequence 65, complimentary of the WeeSpring Parent Panel. I was actually in the market for a second convertible seat for my son to use in my mother in law's car, but with so many great features, it has ended up being his main seat in my car and his old seat will now be the spare. First of all, he loves sitting so upright and being able to see out the window. His old seat had more of a recline and he just was not having it! As you can see, we are still using it in the rear facing position and plan to do so for as long as he is within the weight and/or height limits, which are great with this seat- 4-40lbs rear facing and 20-65lbs forward facing. The headrest and no rethread harness make it a (one-handed!) breeze to swap between children, if needed, or to just make room as your child grows. The frame itself is reinforced with steel, which gives me great comfort about the level of protection and security that it offers. Even with all of the sturdiness, the seat itself is very cushy! You can tell they made sure that comfort was a top priority when they designed this seat. One of the best features is that the seat cover can be removed without uninstalling the seat and in less than a minute flat! I read the claims, but kind of did an, "okay, we'll see about that!", but sure enough, it's true! This is a game changer for toddlers who cannot survive a single car ride, no matter how short in duration or how close to their last meal, without a messy, crumby snack! And all the mothers said, "Amen!" An added bonus is that the seat has not just one, but two built in cup holders to hold whatever your little one so desires! They're easily accessible, too. My son struggled to reach his cup holder in his old seat, so I heard a lot of whining coming from the back until we got this seat.

On the more technical side, this seat practically installs itself! It has a feature called EZ Tight LATCH that tightens itself once you hook up the LATCH connectors and pull the slack out. You literally have to just slide the button back and it ratchets the seatbelt in and tightens down the seat. Now, it does take a bit of pushing and wiggling to get the last bit tightened down all the way to ensure that there is less than 1" of movement at the belt path, but once's you figure it out the first time, each subsequent install is a breeze. The seatbelt install for heavier kiddos (the combined weight of the seat, which is 25lbs, plus the weight of your child has to be less than 65 lbs to use the LATCH install in vehicles manufactured in or after 2014) is pretty standard compared to other seats. The seat itself seems to be a decent size, in that it doesn't seem too tall, too wide, or too deep, front to back to make it difficult to fit in cars. In fact, it seems to me that it might be a good choice for more compact vehicles without a lot of wiggle room for seat installation. It also has three different reclines each for rear facing and forward facing, so as long as the seat falls within the appropriate indicator area, you can choose the recline level to suit your child's needs and whatever space constraints you might have.

Overall, I give this 5 stars! My only complaints were the learning curve at first for getting a good tight install with the EZ Tight LATCH (but once again, once you figure it out, you're golden!), the belt release button for the EZ Tight LATCH was were my fingers naturally wanted to sit, so when I pulled the slider back to have the seat tighten itself, I had to be mindful that I wasn't inadvertently loosening it. My final complaint (though none of these would be a deal breaker for me, by any means) was that were no belt lock offs for the seatbelt installation, which helps to make a tighter install a little bit easier.

We are very happy with this seat and have been thoroughly enjoying all of its great features that have allowed us the gift of happy silence on our car rides (as opposed to whining and complaining). The price point on this seat (which is very affordable!) serves to make it that much sweeter of a seat and a deal! You won't be disappointed with the Graco Sequence 65 Platinum!

Safe and Comfortable Rear-facing Toddler!
February 10, 2018
I was so excited to get the opportunity to review the Graco Sequence 65 Platinum!
Here are my thoughts on this new product :

Safety :
- Sturdy frame and seat construction
- Padding is soft yet extremely protective
- Chest clip : easy to position and stays in place
- Love that this seat promotes extended rear-facing with a max rear-facing weight limit of 40lbs!

Design:
- First glance of car seat after installation : seat appeared much wider visually. I felt as though it would be easier to get my toddler in and out of the seat rear-facing, compared to the convertible seat I had been using. This feeling held true once I started using it!
- Sleek, attractive design. Great combination of grays. First thing my husband said once seeing the car seat installed - "Wow, I really like how this looks."
- Two cup holders = awesome! My toddler LOVES them! His previous convertible seat didn't have any. He loves his snacks and talks about his water the whole car ride - lol. Also, his big sister's seat has cup holders, and he loves that his seat is like hers! :)

Installation :
- EZ LATCH makes installation a breeze!
- Usually my husband installs the car seats (it's just his thing :). I decided to go ahead and try it myself late one night. I read the instruction manual for rear-facing installation and then checked out the installation video on gracobaby.com. I installed the car seat in 10 minutes! Completely straight forward installation. No issues whatsoever!
- Adjusting the harness and recline took seconds. The harness lever just pulls up to slide the harness up or down - no re-threading of straps! The recline has a pull-out lever in front that adjusts so easily. Love how many recline options there are.

Functionality:
- Our 23 month old son is still rear-facing. The design of this seat allows easy access to put him in and take him out. The sides aren't too high, so they don't cause a barrier when getting him in/out. The recline and design of the seat allows him to still be completely comfortable rear-facing at almost 2 years old.
- Straps and buckles move with ease. A little difficult to tighten the straps. This may be because the seat is rear-facing so it doesn't give a lot of room to pull the strap directly outward to tighten. But I did find this a little more difficult to do than on our previous rear-facing convertible seat.
- Chest clip stays in place. Easy to close and open for parent. Not a safety concern but the strap pads are much thinner than our previous seat. I see pros and cons to both designs of strap pads. This absolutely does not affect functionality, safety, or comfort. I just think it appears comfier with thicker pads but I would in no way consider this a con!
- The easily removable seat cover is amazing. Just makes the inevitable car seat cleanups that much easier. From crumbs to accidents, the material also seems as though it would withstand the messy toddler life!

My little guy appears very comfortable in his new seat! Love that this is a seat that you can use for your newborn and will grow with your child.
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this car seat! Car seat safety is something that is near and dear to my heart. These views are my true feelings on this product. I want to help other parents (caregivers) make an educated decision when it comes to this car seat. Definitely a great seat that I would recommend!

Great car seat
February 10, 2018
I really like this car seat. This is our second Graco and love the sleek look. It is very easy to install using the EZ latch. Fits great in a mid size car with plenty of leg room for my little guy. I love the reclining positions. It seems to sit high enough being rear facing that my little guy can see out the window, which he loves. The only drawback that I found is that the harness release seems awkward to release. I would definitely recommend. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this car seat

Love this convertible car seat
February 9, 2018
As a mom of 3, including twin boys, I have used many different convertible car seats. I have a mid size suv and it was hard to find 3 child seats to fit a cross the back row. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel, I was able try out the Graco Platinum Convertible Car Seat. I was able to fit it into the back row with ease. The LATCH system made this seat a dream to install, the automatic tightening of the LATCH is unlike any other seat I have used and wonderful. I was able to adjust the headrest to fit my child with ease and the recline offers so many more options than my previous seat. The double cup holders are nice and easy to reach for my little ones. We did have a spill but I was able to get the seat cover off and wash it without removing the whole seat. I love the design of this seat. Thank you weeSpring Parent Panel for allowing me to try out this seat.

Excellent Car seat!
February 9, 2018
This car seat is great!!! It was super easy to install. We installed it for rear facing. We also really liked the different recline positions. The fabric is really nice and overall it's jusy a nice looking car seat. My little seems to love to be in it! He's now just starting to want to see out the window and this seat allows him to do so. Also strapping him in and getting him out is very easy. Even my mom can do it! I haven't had to wash the seat cover yet but it seems simple enough. Oh and it's awesome to have 2 cup holders. That's a must for us!

Great Carseat with Easy Latch!
February 9, 2018
I received this car seat from a weeSpring Parent Panel. There are a lot of car seats out there with a lot of bells and whistles. We were in the market for a new car seat. I personally had a hard time when we went in the store and tested out some other car seats. A feature I was looking for was being able to get my toddler in and out of her car seat easily. I am thrilled with this particular car seat. I had no trouble strapping her in and getting her out. I always make my husband put the baby items together because I am not good at assembling items. However, I tried to install the car seat myself. I was so happy that I was able to successfully install it myself. It was surprisingly easy to install. My toddler seemed happier in this carseat since she had more room and padding compared to her previous car seat. She of course spilled milk the second day using the car seat. I figured this would be a good opportunity to test out the washing aspect of the cover. It was a big bonus that we didn't have to take apart the car seat to get the cover off. It was easy to wash and there were no stains or gross smells after washing. We easily put the cover back on and it's good as new. If you're looking for a nice car seat, I would highly recommend this one!

Amazing Graco car seat!
February 8, 2018
I received the Graco Platinum convertible car seat from the WeeSpring panel free in return for my honest review. I have a 17 month old wild child daughter. We already have a Graco all in one car seat. However, the new latch system on the platinum is far superior! The all in one is kind of difficult to adjust the latch strap length, the platinum has a push button device that allows you to easily lengthen or shorten the latch belt to the appropriate length for your car. The latches themselves are easy to attach to the car with a click in system. We love the platinum seat color as it's versatile and we can use it for either a girl or boy. The seat also goes up to 65 lbs as a forward facing seat and for the retail price you can't beat how long you can use this seat. I adjusted the recline to the right level for rear facing. It's easy to know when the recline is correct because there is a little balance ball on the side and you just recline the seat until the ball is in the correct part of the level. Adjusting the harness and back headrest is super easy as well since you just pull up on the top of the seat. Everything is labeled and instructions are listed right on the seat. I love how padded and comfortable the seat is. I haven't tried to remove the pads to wash them but I noticed they are velcroed which will make them much easier to remove versus our other seat which has little stretchy bands that are kind of a pain. The only thing I don't really like is that the seat is rather bulky and might not fit in a very small car well. It's a little tight in our 4 door Chrysler sedan. Overall this is a fabulous seat that I would recommend to anyone having a baby!

The EZ LATCH system is a game changer
February 8, 2018
I have been using Graco car seats since my son was born a few years ago. We had an infant seat for him and we currently use the Graco 4 Ever Car Seat with him in toddler mode. This carseat is being used as a spare for Grandma's house. I really like the ease of tightening the carseat into the car. The EZ LATCH system is awesome! It makes so much sense. It has eased my mind about the car seat being installed tightly enough to keep my son safe. It makes installation SO much easier, especially for my mother who has not had to install a car seat in over 30 years. The easy adjustability in the headrest and recline is nice, but the EZ LATCH system still won my heart. I have not had to wash the liner, but it is nice to know that it can be done easily and without having to "fight" the seat to put the fabric back on.
All and all I am very happy with this seat and will definitely use it for any future littles ones we have down the road.
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this car seat to review.

Great Car Seat!
February 8, 2018
I received this car seat from a weeSpring Parent Panel. And I Love it my son just grew out of his baby car seat and it was time for a new one and this one came right on time. The Easy Latch made it quick to install. And for a mommy like me who has a hard time with instructions this was so easy to put in the car. My son fits comfortably and he is usually a complainer when it comes to going in his seat and he's definitely digging his big boy seat. Not many complaints because I loved it so much. And it's very stylish. I would definitely recommend this seat to other parents. Great product!!!!

Very helpful installation directions on seat!
February 8, 2018
This car seat comes with so many handy instructions on the seat itself. Of course I read the manual about installing into my car but it is very helpful for the safety tips to be added to the seat. I feel one of the hardest things to feel safe about with a car seat is how far it may hang over the car bench/seat. There is a guide at the base of the car seat guiding you! Plus almost every step is show on how to safely have you child in the seat! The EZ latch is amazing! You can install fast and secure in just a few steps! My mother was even able to do it with little frustration! This will be an extra seat in grandma's car. She enjoy going over all the safety features as well! My daughter is very comfortable in the seat and it comes in a very nice gender neutral color for future kiddos to use. The materials are very soft and easy to clean! Thank you to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this car seat
