Graco impressed me, again!
I bought this carseat for my husband's car, and we love it. I use the 4ever Extend2fit for an every day carseat in my car, but this model is just as impressive. My son seems very comfortable, and the carseat is very sturdy and stable. It is a great fit in my husband's smaller sedan. 100% recommend!
Love the new changes!
Wow, the changes to Myride 65 are AMAZING. We fell in love with the bucket seat for our son who has low muscle tone due to Down syndrome. It helps support all of my little man. The new neck support is amazing! We use Myride 65 for my daughter who does not have disabilities as well. They are the best car seat on the market and they happen to be at a reasonable price as well, bonus!
My 7 month old daughter absolutely loves her new car seat. I call it her back seat recliner. She used to scream and cry in her infant carrier, but now that she's able to be more upright and have more room, she loves it. Since she loves it, I love it. Wouldn't trade it for one of those more fancier, more expensive carseats; it's perfect for us!
Quality Car Seat
I really like this car seat and the ease of installing it. You can easily secure it by the tether straps and hooks or by threading the seatbelt thru the base. Just make sure you tighten it well. My only wish was the foam headrestraint falls when a child is taken out. If a strap could be sewn on the top and flip over the back and Velcro. It could adjust up or down as they grow. Thanks for quality products.
LOVE this car seat
as a mother I want the best for my child. Car seats are no exception. This is not too costly and does everything I need it to. Rear faces from 5-40lbs which is the size of an average 3 or 4 year old and since they recommend rear facing as long as possibly this was the car seat I chose. The black and green color is super cute for my son and I love the built in cup holders. Remember when installing to use either the LATCH system if your car has it or the seatbelt, never both. Also remember when buckling them NOT to use any aftermarket strap covers or anything with the car seat and keep the chest clip at armpit level on their CHEST. I recommend this seat to everyone and have gotten many other mommies to buy this seat and they have all had great things to say about it!
My Favorite Seat Yet!
Let me start by saying that I am a mother of five kids. I love to have the best car seats for my kids as we travel A LOT! I read the reviews on this seat and they were all great, I had my eye on a Britax, but with all the great reviews I figured I would give the MyRide 65LX a shot. So, I ordered it, received it in TWO days and installed it in 5 short minutes! It was so simple to install and my husband noted that it was the first car seat that we have owned that was installed at the correct angel without a lot of adjusting. The seat is super duper comfortable. My baby is 13 months old and is on the small side, but he loves it, and so does my 4 year old. My 4 year old wants to trade in her seat for one of these, and I may just let her. I love it so much and it is so comfortable on all our trips. It is a bit large, but it fits fine in my GMC Acadia. I have told all of my friends with babies about this seat... I highly recommend this seat!
I purchased this seat for my 13 month old daughter. My main reason was for the rear-facing. I am not ready to turn her forward. The seat is large, but fits fine in the middle of my CRV. My daughter is tall - 31"- and she rides comfortably, although I do take her shoes off if she has been playing at the park. It looks great, will work well for a boy in the future, and is durable. My daughter rides comfortably. I wouldn't want to use it in place of the newborn carrier for smaller babies. No long trips yet.
I have mixed feelings about this seat. I have a Chevy suburban and this seat can't really fit behind my drivers seat- which is where I want it. I tried it in the middle but lifting my one year old son in there is not really an option...he's heavy and my arms are not that long. My son does seems comfortable in it and has slept in it on longer rides so I'm happy about that ( others didn't recline enough or have any head support for napping), I use the head support thingy that comes with it. It's fairly padded and soft. Installing it was fine, didn't have to use towels or noodles underneath like I've read some people do with seats, there's a little ball on the side that has to be in the green and ours is. The little cup holder is nice to put toys in or whatever to keep him occupied. It's a nice seat but for rear facing ( which we're supposed to do until 2 years now) I'm surprised at how big it is for even my car- what's bigger than a suburban?! We're keeping the seat but had I seen it in person opposed to ordering it online I may have chosen a smaller one. The green isn't as bright as pictures either which I wanted but that's not a big deal.
I got this because it's one of the top rated safety car seats on consumer reports. It has the same exact rating as the other two highest rated seats, but At half the cost. However I also got the deluxe version of the same car seat for our other car. The deluxe one is a little bit nicer because it has a much softer and more comfortable fabric as well as pads for the shoulder strap.
safe and secure
All I can say is that the police officers who installed this car seat for me at our local fire dept were very impressed by how securely it fit in the back seat of my vehicle and how safe it appeared based on its overall structure and amount of padding. Since they see hundreds of car seats as part of their installation/inspection program, that was a good enough endorsement for me! My grandaughter (14 mos) seems to like it as well and the cup holders are an added bonus!
This is the second My Ride 65 that I have purchased for my granddaughters. We love the two cup holders and the extra padding around the head. We were involved in a rear end collision with my oldest granddaughter who was asleep in this seat, and she never knew anything. No injury. This seat is in a good reclined position when forward facing so child's head does not fall forward.
Good car seat to last a long time.
I was recommended this car seat by a friend. I am happy with my purchase, although the one thing that I do have to say is that I find it quite difficult at times figuring at the straps and/or buckles. It seems that it is a bit more difficult than others. Overall, it is a great car seat and I feel that my daughter can use this until she no longer needs to be in a car seat.
I bought four of these, two for each car. These were extremely hard to install rear facing using the latch system...but once installed, my 1year olds seems to really like them. I have a 2011 Mazda6, and my husband and I are both 5'8" and we have plenty of room up front with these in the back seat. We haven't installed the other two in the other car because of the difficulty...we have an appointment to have them installed at a dealership that offers installation for carseats.
Love the cup holders!
I had to put towels under the seat to level it out for rear facing and I had my brother put it in for me. My daughter loves it especially the cup holders for treats and toys, I do wish the snap for the crotch was longer if she was a boy i don't think it would be comfortable. There may be a way to adjust it to make it longer but I haven't found out how to do it yet. Pretty tight fit and I have almost clipped her thighs a couple times (she has chubby thighs). Overall satisfied,
