Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job. Good secondary car seat 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have 4, very good 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New car seat was already almost a year old! 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have used this car seat for about 1.5 years now. (Since my son was 6mo) we used it rear facing and now have switched him facing forward. This seat seems to be very comfortable for him. It is very easy to install, easy to clean, and overall I love it. My only complaint would be that it is pretty bulky. When we had a smaller car it barely fit in the backseat and we could only get a safe install in the middle seat leaving no room for someone else to sit comfortably in the back. Now we have a crossover and there is plenty of room for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was really a great car see I do love This was really a great car seat I do love it. My child has but so good in it from when she was nine months old to now being almost to I love how it just forms to her. The only real downfall I have is I love how the Chico car seat have the push button that you can latch the car seats to your car rather than Grayco have the clips that you have to be able to push on and connect The only real downfall I have is I love how the Chico car seats have the push button that you can latch the car seats to your car rather than Grayco has the clips that you have to be able to push on and connect them I also feel like as you switch the car seats out that the belt gets looser and looser. Trim some of the other car seats that I tried out though this one is so much better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this car seat for my son because it grows with the child! I believe he'll be able to use it until he's about 5! Loved it so much that i just bought the same one for my unborn! My son loves it too he uses the cup holder for his snacks and toys and of course his cup. The only down side to this car seat is it's HEAVY. It's not a car seat you take in and out of your car nor is it a car seat you carry your child in outside of the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We bought this carseat after my daughter outgrew her infant carseat. It works great! There's a cup holder for her sippy on long car rides and the headrest keeps her comfortable for naps on the go. It is easy to install in the car and the straps are simple to take on and off (but secure - no access for little one to adjust it while inside it). Looking forward to getting a lot of use out of this one since it grows with her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We’ve been very pleased with this convertible car seat. We have this one and a second Graco for the other car, and we feel it’s a brand we can trust. They are easy enough to clean when needed, and they installed without too much trouble. We were able to switch from the infant carrier to this model when she was big enough, first rear- and now forward-facing, and it should take her right up to a booster later on.
