I am a Grandma who has been babysitting my grandson for nearly four years now while my daughter works. When my daughter and I purchased this car seat I had only hopes that we had made the right choice and were getting a quality, safe, comfortable car seat for my grandson. Now after four years of use, I can stand behind my opinion and state that I couldn't be happier with our choice! This car seat has never failed in all the requirements I placed on it....it has been comfortable for my grandson to ride in, it has passed safety inspections (thankfully I have never experienced an accident to attest to it's true safety), it cleans up easily and it has withstood time with no malfunctions or breakages! Overall....Thumbs UP!

Design
The design team who came up with the features that put this car seat over the top, (IMHO), must have all been parents who knew just what a superior car seat should have. Some of the highlights are the weight that is light enough to put in and out of the car with ease, the placement of the straps that secure properly but are not uncomfortable when in use, the cup holders that can be used not only for cups but for snacks or smaller toys, and finally the removable cover that makes cleaning a breeze!

Safety
Thankfully I am unable to attest to the safety of this seat following a vehicle accident. But I have a Fire Chief who is a neighbor who did do a safety test for me and had no negative remarks, passing it for safety with flying colors. When installed according to the directions it is stable and secure.

Child Comfort
I have to assume my grandson has always been comfortable due to the fact that he has always slept more when in this seat than remaining awake. I have seen and heard other children complain that they do not want to stay in their seat...not my little guy, he climbs right in and never complains of any discomfort.

Maneuverability
Putting this seat in and taking it out is so easy! It is just the right weight that allows even this old Grandma to put it in and out when necessary without any strains or pains! It straps in without my having to bend over backwards to run the belt and snug it securely in place.

Durability
With four years use this car seat has held up beautifully! The material has remained unscathed due to the removable cover that washes up like new. The clasp has never given me a problem and the hard plastic body has never cracked or chipped even when dropped on the driveway a few times!

We switch to my ride 65 after our toddler outgrow her infant seat (at about a year). It seemed sturdy and durable and my kiddo loved that it was tall so she could see out the window when she was forward facing. After about a year with it, I was ready to trade it in. It is a nightmare to move from one vehicle to another because it is so bulky. I admit, I don't have a whole lot of patience (especially because I am short and installing it in our Ford Edge is beyond my height's ability.) My husband, who is 6'0, could install it but it still took a chunk of time. I liked that he cup holders were built in as so many others are detachable and constantly fall off. However, when it gets dirty trying to take it apart and wash the cover and clean out food/other was a biiiiiig process. We ended up buying two car seats (different brands) to put in my husband's truck and my mom's car because of the lengthy install/uninstall process. The cover also began to have a mildew smell even after repeated washes because food and liquid get trapped on the underside of the cover. As she grew, I had
To have my front seat pushed all the way up so I can't hardly have anyone over 5'3 as a front seat passenger and my 11 year old daughter had to squeeze in a friend/teammate because it was so bulky. I felt like she was safe and secure while in it but it definitely has its flaws.

    It's a great car seat daughter seems comfortable and it seems study, my main issue is how bulky it is and if you only have one car seat but two cars moving from car to car is not ideal if you want to use the latch system. The matches are very difficult to undo
