I purchased this car seat because it was a great clearance price.  Not needing a booster at the time, I didn't know anything about it, but decided I could take it back after researching if it wasn't a good seat.  I did end up keeping it and am glad I did.  It is only forward facing, but that's all I need it for.  It does convert from a five point harness into a high back booster.  I have only used it with the five point harness, as I moved this from my oldest son to my middle son.  I do wish the weight limit on the five point harness were a little higher, but my second son is pretty slender so it may not be an issue.  It's easy to install with the latch.  It's easy to tighten the straps with the front adjustment.  I do wish there were an easier way to change the height adjustment of the straps.  I have to remove the car seat and unattach, and re-thread the straps through the new slots.  The cover is easy to remove and clean.  The only complaint I have is that my second son was able to unlatch the chest clip when he was only 20 months old.  Luckily this was just a phase and he doesn't do it anymore or else I would have had to have gotten a new seat.

I purchased the Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat on-line from a reputable company.  My son was about to move from his rear-facing infant seat and needed something that could go forward facing.  I was impressed with the fact that it could transition from a forward facing car seat to a high back booster car seat.

However, I do not like the design of the seat belt position-er that is at the top for transitioning to the high back booster.  Others might prefer this design and that's great.  Whatever works for you best is what most people prefer, but it's just not something that I liked.

The Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat also sits pretty low to the actual seat of the car.  Which for us, was a minor  inconvenience.  However, now that we are ready to transition from a car seat to a booster, I just coudn't get used to the way the seat belt position-er at the top works.  I just don't like the design.

With all that being said, I have to comment that the car seat can still be attached with the latch and tether system while the child is using the car seat with the seat belt and that is impressive as most boosters have  NOTHING to hold the car seat in place.  Which, might not be that big of a deal until you are going somewhere without your child and need to figure out a way to secure the car seat (buckle it anyway or put it in the trunk) in case of an accident.

All car seats, rear-facing and forward-facing, along with all boosters have to meet government regulation standards, so I'm sure it's safe and secure for children according to the manufacturers directions, it just comes to a preference.

I ended up replacing this one because I just liked the high back boosters of other varieties in the Graco brand better.

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

**                                                         Graco Treasured Cargo - Plaid Ross  ** 

 

I have brought this car seat for a few of my children, i have four children and it works out great , it is comfortable for them it fits well in any car or vehicle.. it also has a 5 point Harness & Lap Belt Compatible , which makes you feel way more safer thanputting your children in any other carseat out there. I fell really comfortable and relaxed knowing my child is in this kind of car seat , i trust it very very much and would prefer to use it more than any other carseat around. I also know my  multiple friends and family members use it for their children thanks to me preferring them use it and seeing my children use it. It is a very great product and i would aprove it for any child. I do not think it can get any better and its a far fetch for any other car seat company around to try and top it. Im very thankful to have my child in this seat  Thank you so much for graco

The graco ultra cargo booster car seat great for all little ones

By 

from Henderson, NV

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

This carseat is wonderful. It is so versatile and doesn't move once it is placed in the car. My son has been in it since he moved out of his infant carrier and is now almost 5 years old and he is now in it as a booster seat. We love that we didn't have to buy a new booster seat when he outgrew the normal carseat size. It was overall the best gift we received from our baby shower. We didn't buy it but I do know that the price was a great price and very affordable. Very easy to clean fabric and easy to remove to clean underneath on the plastic. My son feels more comfortable in this booster carseat than the regular booster seat we bought for our other vehicle. 

The decoration on the carseat is Simpson which is a brand from the car racing set. My son loves that it is a "racing seat". It is very sturdy and doesn't move once it was strapped in. We use a seatbelt and the anchors that are in the car to secure it. The only con I can think of is that when I have had to transfer it to another vehicle, it is rather heavy and awkward. I had trouble getting it into the car in a parking lot because I had to open the door very wide to get it in the backseat.

Perfect seat to grow with toddler into preschool age.

By 

from Mount Pleasant, IA

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

This is a great seat.  It is perfect seat to take you from toddler through preschool ages.  It has a five point harness for the little ones (20-40 pounds) and then the straps can either come off or just be buckled behind the child and it is a high back booster.  It has mulitple clips for the regular seal belt to hook into.  This is great so that you can customize the height of the seat belt to your child's height.  This seat can take children from 20-100 pounds!  Impressive!!  It also has a cup holder, great for the sippy in the back seat and a small mesh pocket on the side for a snacl or treasure.  The seat itself has a fair amount of padding and seems to be comfy.  Both of my boys truly love this seat.  The pad on the seat removes for washing which is great, especially if you are potty training and someone has an accident.  This seat is also small enough that it really doesn't take up too much room, like some convertibles do.  My hubby has a truck so the kids sit in the back seat and this seat fits perfectly and my son even has a little leg room.

Graco has one-upped themselves!

By 

from Miamisburg, OH

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

We have been Graco fans in our house since our first child was born in 2003.  We've always purchased Graco products because they provide a perfect blend of the right safety features and good value.  Our children have gone from the SnugRide infant seats to CarGo convertible seats to high-back boosters.  Our son was born in 2009 and we went looking for a convertible seat for him.  The one complaint we always had about Graco convertible seats was that the tightening/loosening mechanism was located in a place that made it VERY difficult to maneuver when the seat was in a rear-facing position.  But this new seat has a revamped tightening/loosening mechanism and it's SO much easier to manipulate than the previous models.  The comfort of the seat (padding/material/straps) has remained high quality and virtually unchanged.  In this era of quality loss for overhead savings, I am impressed with Graco's commitment to maintaining quality and improving features.

I love this seat

By 

from Chesterfield, VA

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

I absolutely love this car seat. We got it about 5 months ago for my 3 year old daughter. I drive an 06 VW Jetta 4 door and in her previous seat ( Britax marathon) she always kicket the seat. The marathon was a great seat but didnt fit well in our car. The Graco cargo is slim, light and super comfortable. I find the straps easy to use and adjust. The only thing that makes it a little diffucult sometimes is the extra "pillow" on the seat sometimes bunches and we have to piclk her up then put her in again. Great seat though, ecspecially for the price. I would recommend it!

Very comfy for my daughter

By 

from Amherst, OH

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

Very nice seat, easy to install and tighten in car.  Price was comparable to others with less features, had nice fabric seat surface.  5-point harness felt safer than others and was easy to latch.  Also had latch system which made it safer in our vehicle.  My daughter really liked it.

Graco is a name you can trust

By 

from Oconomowoc, WI

Comments about Graco Ultra CarGo Booster Car Seat:

We had a Britax roundabout for our toddler but she quickly grew out of it.  We need something that would transition her until she was able to use a booster with just the car seat belt - around age 4 and 40+ pounds.  I am very pleased with our purchase.  The only negative I have found are the straps do not stay untangled like our Britax did.

The Graco Ultra Cargo is wonderful. I actually just purchased one for my nephew and it fits well into my car. It has great features as well, the booster used to place the carseat itself in detaches for easier carry.
