We have purchased a total of four Graco carseats, including this particular model. Graco makes great products, and I have never had a single complaint when using them. Their history and reliability are superb and I will not buy another brand of carseat or any other baby gear, for that matter. My son loved riding in this carseat, because it is extremely cushy and comfortable. The seat is well-made and stands the test of time, even while a toddler is riding in it day in and day out. It is easy to clean and easy to install. The straps are very easy to adjust and fasten, and they can be moved to different heights to fit your child's shoulders at different ages. There are also grooves at the top where a seatbelt can be used in the more traditional style, although I prefer the safety of hooking the carseat into the car and using the harness. This carseat is a great one and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to buy a convertible carseat!
