Q:Will this take up my whole backseat? I have a chevy aveo (small car). Is it supposed to go in the middle or can it go on the side?

A:i have a 2006 toyota corolla. it takes up quite a bit of space in backseat, but still enough room for passengers on either side since i have my baby’s car seat in middle of back seat. the seat can be secured in either the middle of the back seat or either side of the back seat. if you choose to place the car seat on si…

i have a 2006 toyota corolla. it takes up quite a bit of space in backseat, but still enough room for passengers on either side since i have my baby’s car seat in middle of back seat. the seat can be secured in either the middle of the back seat or either side of the back seat. if you choose to place the car seat on side, i would recommend placing on right side of back seat. growing up i was taught that if by some misfortune the door were to open while the vehicle is in motion, there is that chance that the seat, if dislodged, would roll into the shoulder of the road as opposed to open, moving traffic; as would be the case on the left side. again, that’s just something i was raised with. hope this helps.

Q:What is the height limit for this carseat?
A:The manual states the child must not exceed 49″.https://download.gracobaby.com/ProductInstructionManuals/PD265353B.pdf

Q:Can this car seat be used in an airplane ? Is it FAA approved?

A:It fits rear-facing on Southwest’s various Boeing 737 configurations (we haven’t been on the 737-800, but seats on all the SWA planes are the same width, and the 800’s rows aren’t as close together as the 700, so it should fit), so it would definitely fit forward-facing. Car seats have to go in the window seat, becaus…

It fits rear-facing on Southwest’s various Boeing 737 configurations (we haven’t been on the 737-800, but seats on all the SWA planes are the same width, and the 800’s rows aren’t as close together as the 700, so it should fit), so it would definitely fit forward-facing. Car seats have to go in the window seat, because the FAA requires that all passengers have unimpeded access to the exits. The car seat partially covers both armrests. If it’s rear-facing, it does prevent the person in front of it from reclining. :(If it fits on SWA seats, I’m guessing it will fit on any width seats. But if it’s rear-facing, I have a hard time imagining it would fit in Spirit’s economy section (rows are every 28 inches, while SWA’s rows are every 31 to 33 inches).It is FAA approved. I think you’ll have a very hard time finding a new car seat in the U.S. that isn’t FAA approved.

Q:Will this car seat fit in a Toyota Corolla or Prius?
A:I would think that it totally would. I had to install it in my parent’s Chevy Malibu, and I was able to fit two in the back seat (we have twins). I am not sure if either models are comparable to the Malibu.

Q:will this fit in a 2010 Subaru Forester? And still allow for one or 2 other passengers in the back seat? Thanks!!
A:Yes it should. I drive a Ford Escape and I can get the car seat and 2 other people in my back seat…

Q:How many years can we use this car seat ? I dont see any expiration date on the car seat
A:I sent an email to Greco about my snur ride car seat it was manufactured in 11/2012 and they responded that the car seat was good till 12/2019 so as long as seat is not in an accident should be good for 7 years past manufactured date. Hope this helps.

Q:How well does this seat reclinein the rear facing postion? Just a little or is it good that babies head doesn’t fall forward when sleeping? We have a Britax Marathon for my 7 month old but when sleeping his head falls front. It doesnt seem to recline enough for little babies.
A:My baby just turned one year old, but she has fallen asleep in it several times. I have looked at her and never seen her neck roll. It reclines enough that she is laid back and cradled in it.

Q:How to get Latch tight when rear facing? I’ve sat in it (180LBS) and pulled as hard as possible, but I can still move the car seat side to 12-15 inches
A:Also, be sure you’re wiggling at the back. The front/top will move regardless. When testing your car seat for proper tension it should be at the point closest to the angle of your back seat.

Q:My son is 10 weeks old and weights almost 17lbs.Will this car seat recline enough (rear facing) to support his neck and head comfortable ?
A:I would have to say … No

Q:In the rear facing position is it easy to loosen the straps to get the child out of the seat? It looks like it would be hard to push.
A:I found it easy to reach. Just make sure on installation you don’t trap the strap between your seat and the car seat. I’ve done the infant recline angle and the 3+ month incline angle and found both really easy to access the button to loosen the straps.

 

Q:How is this car seats head support? The head support on my 6 month old sons current convertible car seat doesnt keep his head straight while sleeping
A:The Support Is Pretty Good. Our One Year Old Leans To The Side And Her Head Stays There Without The Straining. She Does Tend To Just Hang Her Neck Down The Middle. When That Happens, Theres Not Much Help

Q:Does this model have FAA appoved label informing that can be used in cars and aircraft? It must be written in the warning label.
A:Yes most seats do

Q:I have a Honda CRV the seat doesn’t seem to fit ? The slant of the frame makes it so it does not sit against the back of the seat ?

A:Make sure you have the legs up (the wings that fold under). You can use a rolled or folded towel or blanket to help level it, but do check the directions for forward and rear mounted one more time. I have Honda Pilot and I don’t have a problem, but I did have to review directions for installation. I also had a fireman …

Make sure you have the legs up (the wings that fold under). You can use a rolled or folded towel or blanket to help level it, but do check the directions for forward and rear mounted one more time. I have Honda Pilot and I don’t have a problem, but I did have to review directions for installation. I also had a fireman at a local fire department check out if I had it perfectly installed. They do this and they are so nice. As a Grandmother that was reassuring. (My car seat is in storage until our Granddaughter is here again, so that’s why my first instructions probably don’t label things correctly. Good luck.

Q:When can you move your child front facing in this seat?

A:Children can not *safely* forward face until a minimum of age 2. Babies between 12-24 months are 5x more likely to be internally decapitated when forward facing because their necks and spines are not ossified enough to withstand crash forces. The 1 and 20 “rule” is extremely outdated and unsafe. Here’s some good litera…

Q:I have a honda accord and twins – will two of these fit in the back seat?
A:I cant say for sure about rear facing, but they should fit forward facing, because they could in my civic. I just have no room for a third person if I do.

Q:Does this seat come with the base for the car?
A:This car seat does not need a base. It is a bigger car seat. What you see on the bottom are the feet of the car seat which can be folded in for rear-facing or pulled out (like in the picture) for forward-facing. You use the seat belt or the hooks to fasten the car seat to the seat. Both ways are safe.

Q:I know nothing about carseats or babies, but my best-friend registered for this for her baby shower. Do I need to get a car seat base to go with this?
A:no this is a one piece unit that works great, lasts a long time and is very very safe!

Q:So I know it says for 5lbs and up, but does that mean for newborn infants as well?
A:Yes. It has an infant insert and low straps for an infant. The straps might seem giant at first, though. They are bigger than carriers

Q:Has anybody tried this on Corrolla 2015 ? backfacing or front facing ?
A:I used on my altima 2006. Both ways works fine

Q:Does this car seat fit in to the Graco stroller like an infant seat?
A:No it does not. It is much bigger than an infant seat and not meant to connect to a stroller or travel system.

 

Q:Will this install in back seat of Silverado?
A:I have a 2011 silverado crew cab, and it fits fine

Q:Does anyone know if this will fit in a 2006 Lexus RX330?
A:I have a 2010 Lexus IS 250 and it fits but it is super tight for someone to sit in the passenger seat in front of it. But it works. Most carsear are this size or bigger. This was the smallest I could find.

Q:Can you use it as a carrier
A:No, it has no handle and is meant to be left in the car.

Q:Has anyone used this car seat for new born?
A:Yes we’ve been using it for 5 weeks since our 2 week early baby was born 6.7 lbs

Q:Can I use this car seat for a new born baby?
A:It is rear face too. Min weight is 4 pounds. It may seem huge at first but it should fit them fine. We woild have bought this first if we had known. Our loves her pink seat. It is more comfortable than her orginal eddie bauer.

Q:Why on earth is the girl one $300 when the neutral colored ones are only in the $100 range. That isn’t right.
A:LOL must be the patriarchy in action

Q:Will this seat fit in a Jeep compass 2012? Behind front or passenger seat?
A:The dimensions of the car seat are Height 26″ X Width 20.8″ X Depth 27″. You will need to refer to your vehicle’s owner manual to see if product will fit.

Q:will this car seat fit into a Honda fit?
A:I don’t know for sure. My car is a Nissan Maxima, it fits but sure is big! And difficult to attach to medal latches

Q:I have twins and need 2. will it fit in 09 hyundai sonata? also have a jeep liberty ’12. and sit in between them on long trips. will i fit?

A:I don’t think so it is pretty wide. It’s a very spacious car seat in all ways which is nice for the kid. My son loves it so much and he looks so comfy. Back to the point I would not even recommend having two of these car seats in a dodge caravan type vehicle. By just having one were are not able to access the back seat…

Back to the point I would not even recommend having two of these car seats in a dodge caravan type vehicle. By just having one were are not able to access the back seat on that sliding door. The passenger seat is not able to recline much at all either. I hope this helps!! :)

Q:Does this convert into a high back booster?
A:No

Q:Do you have to remove straps to take seat cover off for cleaning?
A:Not completely, I believe you would only have to unthread them for the cover to come off. Although you have to manually thread the straps to adjust on this seat, they are much easier to thread than other seats I have had!

Q:when does this expire?
A:There should be a stamp on the bottom of the car seat that tells you.

Q:what is the latch system?
A:I found some good information about the LATCH system at https://csftl.org/whats-the-deal-with-weight-limits/; short story, it is the difference between using only a seat belt to anchor your baby’s car seat, and using the extra clips/buckles that most vehicles manufactured after 2002 now include.

Q:is this seat comfortable when the babies/toddlers are sleeping? I hate when I see the heads of boys/girls hanging.
A:I definitely know that feeling! No their heads look very comfortable in the seat when sleeping. The head rest is spacious and soft- just perfect for a little head.

Q:Will this carseat fit in a smaller car such as a four door 2014 Toyota Yaris? Thanks !
A:It will fit but you would need to sacrifice some leg room in front passenger/driver seat.

 

Q:can this seat be used with base from the graco fast action click connect stroller system?
A:Base is attached. Does not need anything extra. Comes car ready…

Q:Is there a recline adjustment in the forward facing mode? Right now my daughter can lay back but not sit upright? Is there a setting for that?
A:The seat has two flaps below it, one on each side, that can be used to prop it up a bit, but the position is not fully upright.

Q:When rear-facing the weight limit is 40lbs. Does the manual give a maximum height limit for rear-facing? I can only find a forward-facing height limit

A:From the manual: “This child restraint is certi?ed for use rear-facing with children up to 40 lb (18 kg). However, some children …

From the manual: “This child restraint is certi?ed for use rear-facing with children up to 40 lb (18 kg). However, some children approaching 40 lb (18 kg) may be too tall to ?t rear-facing. Top of head must be at least 1” (2.5 cm) below the top of the child restraint.”I know this doesn’t help you, but that’s all the manual says.

Q:What is the distance between the seat to the crotch buckle?
A:Depends on the setting there are 2-3 positions for settings?

Q:I hear different colors have different fabrics. Which of these has the microfiber and which has the vinyl fabric?
A:The one I have is all microfiber. No vinyl on the pink flower style.

Q:does the car seat fit into the captain chair of a town and country without a rolled towel or foam tube?
A:It fits in a captain chair in my Sienna without a towel.

Q:Friend says her actual. car seat measures 19 L x 22 W. will this baby seat fit into her car?
A:It should. The widest point at the base is 20.5inches. I’ve installed this as a middle seat in a small sedan and in a captains chair in an SUV and had no issues.

Q:my 7 month old holds head up well. can i forward face seat?

A:No. It isn’t about whether or not they can hold their head up or the type of carseat they’re in. Most pediatricians want kids to be at least 1 1/2 before you turn them forward facing. It helps protect them incase of a crash. Their little neck muscles are just not strong enough to withstand and it would be much much mo…

It is not super easy to adjust while the car seat is installed in the car (unless your seat in front of it moves really far forward) but it is simple to do. Hope this helps! To adjust the height of the seatbelt straps, you have to take the seat completely out of the car. We love the seat enough, that has been well worth it for us.

Q:Does this seat recline in mazdz cx9 when forward facing?
A:Yes it has feet that snap out to recline slighty. A great resource is csftl.org or they have a Facebook group u can submit questions to they car seat techs. It’s called car seats for the littles.

 

Q:Would this be to big for my chevy cobalt
A:I have it in a 2002 vw Jetta it fits well enough the passenger front seat is scooted up but not impossible for an average sized adult to sit in the seat.

Q:how long can i use this for a new born to what age?
A:You can use this all the way til they fit into a booster seat. Around 4 or 5 year old

Q:How is the item packed? It is listed as “This item’s packaging will be visible”. What does it mean?
A:It means they ship it in its original box instead of putting the box into another box, so the picture of the carseat is on the outside, etc… In other words, they take the car seat (in its box) off the shelf, slap a shipping label on it, and send it off.

Q:Will this fit in an airplane seat?
A:I’m sure it will. It is no larger than others,

Q:Anyone have problems with the carseat leaving red marks on mid to lower back?
A:No not at all

Q:Does anyone know if this seat is appoved by the NHTSA?
A:It is approved you can check here, https://www.nhtsa.gov/nhtsa_eou/info.jsp?type=convertible

Q:can i use this with the Graco click connect stroller?
A:No it does not fit into any Graco stroller that I could find. It is a free standing carseat. The reason I bought it was that it can be used throughout the growth of the baby from infancy to booster size.

Q:My daughter has long legs, will she be able to sit rear facing comfortably?
A:Absolutely! This seat offers a great amount of leg room. I’ve seen 3-4 year olds that still fit comfortably rear facing in this seat. Remember that kids are very flexible and can find ways to make their legs comfortable that may look uncomfortable to us adults. :)

Q:Will it sit well in an Altima?
A:It is very reclined FF. If your seats are straight there will be a gap between the seat and the car.

Q:Does this suitable for both ISOFIX and LATCH safity standards?
A:Yes

 

Q:Has anyone used this car seat in a new VW Beetle?
A:This is a huge car seat my friend. It’s more equipped for a large SUV or mini-van bucket seat. Not really recommended for small cars. Trust me, we’ve tried it. But this IS the best car seat we’ve ever purchased. Hope this helped.

Q:Does anyone who owns this have a Toyota Camry and do you use it rear-facing?
A:My Ford Focus is smaller in te back seat than a Camry we use it forward dacin but there’s still some room so I’m sure it would fit in your back seat :)

Q:Does this fit rear-facing in a Toyota Corolla?
A:No not really. I was disappointed that it crushed my daughters legs and she is not very tall.

Q:Are you able to unlatch the chest clip and buckle with one hand? I’m usually holding one child while trying to unbuckle the other.
A:Yes

Q:I noticed the 2014 had some negative reviews on tightening the straps, are these fixed? I dont see that in recent posts.
A:I have 2 Graco convertible carseats, one is My Ride 65 and the other one is My Ride 65LX. The straps are a little hard to tight up on both, but one is a little harder than the other one. I got use to them so I don’t have a problem with it.

Q:Is this product aircraft approved and is allowed to be sued in aircraft as per USA flight norms?
A:Yes, and I assume you meant used not sued :-)

Q:Will it fit in my 2013 Chevy Sonic LT (5 door/hatchback)?
A:I went to a big box retailer and took some measurements of the model to confirm the fit. I would check with the mfg of your car and Graco.

Q:Is there more then one slot for crotch adjustment?
A:No, just the one in the front.

Q:someone recommended this car seat to me but stressed being sure to get it with safety surround? I don’t know what this means.
A:I don’t know what a safety surround is? The car seat came with just what you see.

Q:does it recline?
A:No. Not that I know of at least.

 

Q:How much side impact protection does it have?

A:Seems to be very good. Infact it has a sticker on the upper inside portion of the seat. As you can see, it also has a head protection ‘pillow’ that is adjustable for extra protection.

Q:Can the harness straps be removed from the seat for cleaning?
A:I believe half of the straps comes off so you can take the fabric off to wash it. The straps really only need to be wiped off.

Q:i have a volkswagon jetta its a smaller car does anyone have this car and where do they put this seat?? thanks grace.
A:My daughter has the same kind of car and she puts hers behind the passenger seat.

Q:How many years from the date of manufacture until the expiration date?
A:With any carseat it’s 7 years

Q:Would this fit rear facing in a dodge charger 2010? It would have to be on the side not the middle since I have two kids in carseats
A:This seat is quite bulky, so you may have a difficult time getting it to fit correctly rear facing. Try the MySIZE instead, it is a lot longer lasting and more compact. :)

Q:will the graco my ride 65 lx convertible car seat fit forwar facing in the back of a mini cooper s?
A:No

Q:How do you install it forward facing using the latch system if behind the seat in my Ford Escape there is no hook to attach it to in the back?
A:I’m not sure specifically about the Escape, but your vehicle’s manual should have instructions.

Q:is it a booster seat too
A:No

Q:My question is for the REAR facing mode only: is it hard to tighten the harness?
A:Not at all. I have it on rear facing now as Dr recommended to keep him there until he’s close to 2 years old. Super easy. You just buckle your baby in and you pull in the strap to tighten the harness to a desired level. There’s a buckle to untie the buckle. Super easy. I bought 3 of these car seats for 3 cars. Love them!

Q:Does this seat have reclining options..
A:Not that I am aware of.
