Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 167reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great value; compact, just not in every dimension I purchased this seat to use in my 2007 Subaru Forester, which has a notoriously small back seat. This seat is also marketed as the Eddie Bauer XRS65 and S1 Easy Fit 65 at other retailers, with some minor differences.Although the seat is indeed quite compact compared to other convertibles, in the rear-facing configuration it unfortunately does not save much (if any) front-to-back space over our other convertible seat, the Britax Roundabout 55. It hits the rear of the front seats in nearly the same spot as the Britax, limiting the legroom of the front passengers. I was disappointed since this seat is small and specifically marketed towards small cars, but in that crucial dimension it's just average in my case. Your mileage may vary based on the shape and recline of your front and rear seats, of course.I still like the seat quite a bit (especially for the price) - I just wish it had given me just a little more space to move the front seats back.PROS:- Excellent value - cheap, but for the most part it doesn't feel cheap- Compact/light - easy to place in car and remove from car- Narrow, allowing more room for rear seat passengers or other car seats- Sits low for easy ingress/egress - very helpful in smaller cars- Attractive modern design - the gray/black colors match my interior almost perfectly- Fabric is soft without feeling "velvety" as in some car seats- Good amount of padding for price and size - my daughter has not complained about it at all- High weight and height limits for its class- Includes cupholder accessoryCONS:- Not as small as hoped front-to-back in rear facing configuration- Relatively difficult to achieve proper angle rear-facing due to small contact area on seat bottom - had to get rolled up towels positioned just right in order to fully secure it- Single strap connects both LATCH anchors which makes tightening more difficult- Lacks quick-release LATCH hooks- Straps are a little thin and can twist (it's not really much worse than our Britax seats, though)- Crotch buckle strap seems a bit short- Looks to me like the overall design (strap slots, head rest) would not appear to be ideal for a newborn 10/01/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Very nice car seat. We love Safety 1st car seats! The only dray backs about this car seat is t hat it doesn't recline and the cup holder it kinda flimsy. It is a perfect size for cars! It is definitely a space saver! With our old car seat it took up so much room you really couldn't seat three in the backseat comfortably, but now we can! We would recommend this car seat to anyone! 06/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Seat and Great price After doing research and reasing lots of great reviews I decided to purchase this car seat for my 7 month old son. Although he had not yet outgrown his infant carrier (he's only 15 lbs), I had to purchase a new car seat due to a car accident and it didn't make sense to purchase another carrier if he would be outgrowing it soon. Installing this seat was a breeze. The seat is well padded and seems super comfy. The padded headrest can be adjusted to your child height. He loves it. The only complaint I have is loosening the harness is a little tough sometimes. The seat fits in a smaller car wonderfully and still leaves room for other passangers in the back seat. I love that I can use this seat rear facing to 40 lbs and forward facing to 65 lbs. Overall I and extremely satisfied with this car seat and would definitely reccommed it. 05/23/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Wonderful safe seat for the price I love how well made and simple this seat is to use. If you read the entire manual and use pool noodles for recline angle, it's a fantastic affordable seat for many children. I cannot give it 5 stars though; the starting harness slots are too high for an infant. Although it is crash tested to begin at 5 lbs, that does not mean a 5 lb newborn will have a high enough shoulder/torso height to fit the harness slots at or below for rear facing. My 2.5 year old is only on the second slot. The capacity to fit tall children is superb, but not infants. 07/05/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by great for the price It was not as compact wigth wise as I was hoping but I love how short it is when rear facing... It doesn't obstruct any of the rear view. When I first installed it it didn't seem to lean far enough back but when I read the instructionsit said you may have to roll up a towel or something to get it to recline as much as recommended and when I did that it was perfect. 05/18/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Super Easy Installation/Fit I installed this in 5 minutes in the Walmart parking lot, right out of the box.I read other reviews saying that it was shifty and loose. This seat is totally a bargain at the price, and it TOTALLY DOES NOT MOVE once installed *properly*. Just feed the lower seat anchor strap back through the back of the seat and pull from that angle. I'm 300 pounds and tried to move this seat once installed and it wouldn't budge AT ALL. Not bad!One downside is that the buckle in the front was hard to unhook, but considering that my 15 month old could figure out the Evenflo chest buckle already, I'm okay with adults having to put effort into unbuckling it.This isn't the Lotus of car seats but it serves it's purpose, it's not hideous, the price is right, and I feel 100% comfortable putting my first and only child into it. 11/30/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Comfy little seat We've had this seat a couple of weeks now and love it! The deep head rest and plush sides doubles as a nice pillow for napping, which is VERY important for our long trek to town. Rear facing does require several towels underneath to recline properly, other than that, it installed easily in my Murano. The buckle strap does get twisted easily, but is just as easy to untwist it. The only complaint would be the manual re-threading of the straps, but that is minor.**A NOTE IF YOUR BUYING FOR AN INFANT-- Amazon has this seat, which costs a little more, but is pictured with the padding inserts around the torso area for a snug, comfy ride for your tiny infant, my daughter is 11 months and past that, but, if i was buying for a newborn, that info would interest me.... 11/27/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by I'm on the fence with this one! This is the 3rd car seat that I've purchased. My first one was your typical infant car seat with a base (loved it). I also purchased a Graco convertible version (I think it is much better) and I purchased 2 of these for two vehicles that we don't use as much. I had a hard time getting this car seat in my car (and it wasn't the first one I've ever put in). The lines on the side to make it "level" are deceiving and there are so many reasons why or why you shouldn't have it at this level or that level, etc. When all is said and done...the seat still slides a bit. My husband even tried tightening it down (my other car seats don't budge at all!!). I even tried taking take the car seat protector out from under it thinking that that may be why it was sliding. Nope. Although this car seat's manual does not specify how much slack is Graco manual says that the car seat should not move more than 1 inch. I simply can't make this happen with this seat.I do want to mention that the padding is much softer than any other car seat we've had and the price was right! It does feel cheap compared to the ones that I paid more for. I guess you get what you pay for. Not to mention that I'm constantly wondering if it's secure enough in my car. 06/17/2014
