Transitioning from an infant seat to a convertible seat I was looking for a highly rated ( by parents) seat as well as a highly safety rated chair. This one made my criteria perfectly and the color matches my vehicle. Because my grandbaby sits up higher in this seat, she can see more and is less fussy. The built in cup holders come in handy as well. I especially like the side head restraints.
I am so so disappointed in this car seat. Have had 2 now and both had the same problem. They don't tighten enough to be safe! The harness always gets stuck on who knows what!
At first it was easy and it was great then as my son got older it was harder to keep it properly installed. Every turn we made my sons seat would turn fully to the side like it was never strapped in. I tried to continuously fix it but it didnt work. I also have another one of your seats that does the same
This carseat is nearly impossible to fit in any car. Even in my jeep, we cant put this behind the driver seat or else my husband cant fit in his seat. It flipped over every single time we made the slightest turn and no matter what we did, it was consistently at the wrong angle. I shouldn't have to put towels under or near it to make it fit properly. Also the straps, god, they get stuck EVERY. SINGLE. TIME on what? I couldn't tell you. It's cheap and that's the only good thing about it.
I like the fact that its 3 in 1 but it's a little difficult to install to get it right enough that it doesn't move. The seat is reclined all the way but my babies head still falls to the side when he falls asleep wish it would have a little more support on the head area. The instruction book says "put a noodle or a towel to get desired recline position". I feel like it's a little difficult to move the head rest at times. The latch to recline is difficult to get in to when its rear facing
Have for our toddler and newborn, theyre a little wide so in a small car you couldnt have 3, but otherwise love them. I do wish it included shoulder pads like the grow and go but the extra 10lbs rearfacing is worth doing witnout. All in all love them more then Graco.
