I'm so glad I bought this car seat! It was so easy to install and it is very comfortable for my 2 year old daughter. I was a little hesitant about purchasing this due to some negative reviews on not being able to tighten or putting it together but no. It was easy to tighten and install!

We tried another seat before this one and had to take it back. This one is so much nicer and easier to install. Its not as easy as our infant seat was, but much better than other convertibles we've tried, so I'd probably put it in the middle as far as ease of installation goes. I'm sure if you got a...see moreof the reviewer's review

I love this car seat! This is actually the 3rd one that I have purchased - 1 for my car, 1 for my fiance's truck and 1 for the grandparents. It is not super small or lightweight but it will fit in the back of a Ford Focus (rear facing). It is very easy to use and install. I love the height adjus...see moreof the reviewer's review

We were recently in a car accident where we were sandwiched. This seat kept my 11 month old perfectly safe and he had no injuries at all. Would recommend it to anyone! Love graco!see moreof the reviewer's review

We bought this seat for my moms car for when she watches our son. This is IMPOSSIBLE to tighten. I have to literally sit in the seat and still can't tighten it. Using the latch system AND seatbelt together. Even had my mom try to tighten it while I sit in the seat. It's next to impossible to loosen ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I love the overall design other than the fact that my toddler can get his little fingers on the latch that keeps the straps tightened. All he has to do is pull the lever up and move his chest forward and it’s loose as can be. Loved it before this happened, now it’s just truly unsafe!!! I wish they m...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this carseat and could not install correctly. I couldn't tighter the seat and when i would go over a bump or turn a corner the carseat would move. Maybe it would fit better in a different car. I tried rolling a towel underneath it and still would be too loose. I returned it and got an Evenf...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this seat while pregnant because you should be able to use a convertible seat for an infant 5+lbs. Problem is, because of that newborn insert you can't adjust the straps down to "at or below the shoulders" of an infant. The shoulders sit at about 2" above my daughters shoulders at their low...see moreof the reviewer's review
