Only issue I have with this seat is the release; it is metal (not protected by plastic) and gets hot to the touch in the heat, and it is a little difficult to pull. Other than that, great seat.
Our one year old has been off the charts for weight and height, so this is the perfect car seat for her to grow into. I love the material, it's comfortable without being hot (we live in South Carolina). It's nice knowing we won't have to buy a booster seat when the time comes!
After reading several reviews on this product, my husband and I decided that this was the car seat for us. So far so good, easy to assemble, fairly easy to install into our suv, our son loves his new car seat because he not only fits better in it, but he's facing forward, and enjoys when we (passenger seat rider) pay attention to him. We also have a mirror attached to the rear view mirror so that the driver can see him. We have a small suv, so only this car seat and a travel (for a newborn) carseat fit in the back seat...(I'm due in a few months), we didn't expect anyone else to fit in our backseat besides both kids in their car seats. No problems, love it!!!
We've only used this for a little over a week, but it was easy to set up and easy to install. A nice surprise is that it has a cup holder. I didn't notice that, as this was not one of the important features. My daughter likes it and is comfortable in it.
This is the second Graco Nautilus we've bought (one for each of our children). We had so much success with the first one we bought (two years ago, for our almost 4 y/o) that it was a no-brainer to buy another one for our 1.5 y/o. The fact that this seat will grow with my children until they no longer need a carseat is a great benefit to me - shell out the money once and you're all set! Plus they come in a wide variety of patterns and colors, it's very easy to find one to match your taste preferences. I had a 20% off coupon for Babies R Us and I planned to use it to purchase the carseat from there, but Walmart's price was cheaper than what I would have paid at BRU with the coupon applied, plus tax. And if the cheaper price wasn't enought, Walmart's free shipping sealed the deal. I ordered the carseat online and it arrived on time as promised (about a week). The box wasn't damaged or anything. Initial setup doesn't take long. I would advise you to familiarize yourself with the instruction manual, you WILL refer to it several times in the future (like when it's time for your child to use the next phase of the carseat). The carseat itself is kind of big; we could have fit two of them in the backseat of our former car, a Chevy Cobalt, if we had to, but we have a minivan now so space isn't so much of an issue anymore. Overall, Graco nailed it with this carseat. My kids like the carseat, for the length of time you'll use the carseat it's TOTALLY worth the money, and Graco is a trusted brand. It's definitely worth the investment.
I bought a Nautilus car seat for when my first daughter turned one, and would no longer
fit in her Graco Infant Snug Ride baby car seat. She started using it at 12 months old, facing forward. The car seat has a recline feature, but I found I couldn't use that once the seat was secured to the car. My daughter is now 22 months, and the car seat still looks new (we don't allow her to eat food in the car). The 5-point harness system is easy to use. She loves it, and I love it!
This is a great product!
My Great Grandson just loves his new car seat. First time he can look forward and see where he's going. Very safe and will last him along time.(100#) with the break down of booster seat.
A place to set his bottle, drink or healthy treats. He smiles and talks so much more looking forward. He sat in it for a week so he could get used to it, ate and watched TV. (sponge bob, square pants)
This seat has a fantastic safety rating and is incredibly versatile for our growing child. We purchased a second one for the other vehicle too. This replaces our Evenflo Triumph Advance's and thus there are two features from that seat that I would love to see on the Nautilus-the easy adjust harness that doesn't require rethreading and the tension knobs instead of pull strap for adjusting the harness tightness. Those are the two features I miss of our old seats. However the strap on the Nautilus is easy to adjust/tighten for an appropriate fit, it fits well in our Mazda 626 (even in the center), was easy to install with the seatbelt and our daughter loves her cupholder, cubbies on the sides of her seat and tells us her new seat is very comfy. Definitely a great purchase!
Great seat. Beautiful color - a very pale blue and silver grey.
I love this car seat. It does all the car seat requirements that my daughter will need. So I don't have to buy anymore car seats.
My son 8 months now loves the seat.be can see out the window and he do not fuss to want to get outof the seat easy to install
After only a couple uses the fabric got pulls allover and looks awful.
This set (we bought a bundle) is great so far...we took both our children (twins) out for a drive..and they seemed to be very satisfied with their new seats..my wife likes the side buffers
which makes this product extra safe for side impacts...and the children will soon enjoy the cup-holders which are handy to have. The seats are well padded and are secure. I believe this was
a very good purchase for us......thank you
I had to buy 2 new carseat becuase our others had been racalled. Im so glad I chose these ones they are super cute and my kids love them. Very nice carseat!!!!!
I really like Graco products. The Nautilius is no different. My 20 month old son is very tall and this car seat / booster combo is perfect to accomodate the growing toddler. Very happy with the purchase.
Love love love! It's easy to put together and easy to actually put my child in. I'm very impressed with the color and quality.
we bought two for our twins and they were so easy to set up, which was very important to us. The kids seem very comfortable and happy in these seats. It has two cubbyhole holes on the side where they hide small toys. Also another great feature is the cup holder. You will not be disappointed with this car seat!!
We bought this carseat when our baby turned 1. It seems like it will serve our needs for some time. It was the only carseat that had such a wide weight range. So far, our toddler loves it! He can see us and out of the car better now. The seat was fairly easy to install and not too terribly heavy. However, it seems to be sturdy and well-made. We bought this light-colored version so that it wouldn't hold in as much heat in the summer. For some reason, this color scheme is about $12 more than the other color schemes! We don't understand why, but thankfully we had giftcards to help pay for it.
I purchase this car seat few weeks ago, I have used every day and my daughter love this car seat.
We purchased a graco car seat for our great-grand daughter when she was born, because after doing extensive research, we felt this was the safest. As she grows, we will continue to purchase Graco. We have now purchased another for our newest addition to our growing family.
