Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sturdy seat I received this car seat as a product tester from Stellar. I really like this seat. It’s smaller then my current one and fit nicely in the back of a car we struggled to find a seat to fit without putting the front seats into the dash. It was about the same as normal seats to install easier as you practice. The cup holders were great for a toddler who loves to have snacks on the go. My only thoughts on a down fall would be I think if my child was a new born I would still prefer the conveyance of the removable bucket seat at first. I would recommend this to parents looking for what’s next after their child outgrows the bucket!

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 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 Graco is the Best I received this a part of the stellar panel to test and it came at the perfect time. Graco is my go to brand and this car seat solidified it. The seat fits perfectly between my other two, the design is slim and easy to place. I was in need to of a third car seat and unsure if any would fit all in the same row. This seat is easy to place and easy to adjust. I highly recommend this seat especially if you are a multiple car seat mom. My daughter loves her seat and didn’t notice any difference between this and our larger graco seat. If you’re looking for a seat that’s safe, easy to use and comfortable the Graco contender go is a go to for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe & snug comfortable car seat 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for middle seat Thanks to Stellar Product Testing Panel for this car seat to review. This car seat came at the perfect time since I just had my second daughter and my husband drives a truck so we needed something that would fit nicely in his back seat next to another car seat. This seat did just that. The slim design allowed us to put the car seat in the middle seat right next to our other convertible car seat very easily. It was easy to install and the slim fit does not comprise the comfort for my daughter who now rides in it. She has plenty of space and the harness is easy to use. Would recommend to anyone who has other kids car seats to also worry about in the car or drive small cars with minimum room in their back seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite car seat The slim design does not take away from the comfort. The seat is spacious and so comfortable. I really liked the adjustable head support that grows with your kiddo. This car seat definitely takes up less space than most car seats and is great if you have other children still in car seats. Install was incredibly easy after reading the directions. It was also simple to move the car seat from one car to another. My favorite feature is the cup holder! No more fishing around the back seat trying to find a dropped cup. I’m so glad this car seat can grow with her and become facing forward when she’s ready. It’s already a family favorite and replaced the car seat we were previously using. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this car seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Carseat We have really enjoyed the Graco Contender GO. The carseat provides a lot of support and cushion to make for what seems like a comfortable ride. We haven't had any complaints from our 18 month old. Unlike the carseat we were previously using, the Graco Contender GO is easy to load and unload, into the car and our child within. The straps adjust easily and the slimmer design allow for more room in our back seat. I also like the sleek design and cupholder. Finally, my favorite feature is the adjustable headrest. We are fans so far! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing us with this car seat.
