I Love This Carseat
I Love it. It took me for ever to decide on a carseat that had everything i was looking for. This carseat is awesome its vefy confterble I put the latch and the seat belt and when i drive my car the carseat is very secure and it does not move. Truly the best carseat ever.MRAUDALESW
Very satisfied!
We love this car seat. We purchased this when my son outgrew his infant seat. I would say it's on the bigger side for a convertible seat, especially rear facing, but my son loves it and seem very comfortable in it. Plus the price was awesome compared to other car seats with the same features.Hannah
Love this Carseat, So Good Looking; So Safe
This Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat, Steven is built like a little fortress inside the car. Its features offer a comfortable yet very strong protection device for the baby or young toddler. I got this one for my sweet little granddaughter who is five months old. The car seat fits her like a glove. It's not only attractive, but it's solid. It has a sporty design and what surprised me was that it had a cup holder. I think this makes it a friendly car seat where baby can keep her bottle or sippy cup or munchies.

What I really like about this car seat are its safety features. It has a five point harness system to keep baby in safely in case of sudden braking or worse. It has been side impact safety tested to withstand impact. It has an easy-release buckle and is fairly easy to install into the car. I think that a real safety feature is that smaller babies from five to forty pounds face the rear which gives them double protection, but when the baby becomes a toddler up to 65 pounds, she can sit facing forward. A definite plus is the pads which come with the car seat can be washed.

I got the Steven fashion which means that the car seat upholstery is black with a herringbone pattern and the trim is a lime-green. Excellent choice of colors and design. This car seat is not only very safe but is also super-attractive. My little baby granddaughter looks so wonderful in that car seat. She looks very snug and comfortable; it was such a pleasure to see her so safely tucked in. With its safety features, easy handling and installation and good looks, I would definitely recommend it to a friendChary73
Excellent Convertible Car Seat
The Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat is the all-around best car seat we have looked at. There is more padding than usual all the way around, including a pad around the child's head that curves out to help protect from side impact. All the cushion area seems to be very soft and comfortable. We like the color patterns on this model – a grey pattern with bright green trim (see picture), but it might not go perfectly with just any car interior. A nice feature is the convenient cup holder on the child's right side that should be easily within reach. This seat is designed so that it can be used as a rear facing seat at first (when the child is between 5 and 40 pounds), and then converted to a forward facing later (when the child is between 22 and 65 pounds). The harness itself can be easily adjusted to the correct position without having to loosen or rethread the strap through. As usual, there is a base portion with a latch system to allow for easily removing the seat itself and putting it back in later. There is also a level indicator to take the guesswork out of proper installation. From a safety standard perspective, the seat goes above and beyond the requirements. The peak crash force tested at almost twice the NCAP standard. It has also been tested for side impact (which is not required by the safety standard at all). We are very happy with this car seat and would not hesitate to recommend to others.FootballMonkey
Great infant and toddler seat
In review of the Graco Contender 65 Convertible car seat, to give you some background, I have had many Graco & Safety First car seats. I received the item and it was already assembled inside the box. This car seat is convertible which means it will go from rear facing to forward facing. I like the black/green color so it can be gender neutral to use for many children. Fabric is slick for easy clean up, and almost like a hounds tooth pattern. I like that the seat is very sleek and doesn't appear bulky. There is nothing worse than a huge heavy car seat that you want to cry when you have to move it between cars, and this car seat is not super heavy. This is attached with the traditional LATCH system. This seat has something new that I had never seen, it has a plastic piece that flips on the bottom for the rear-facing and then you flip it back to the forward facing position. This piece allows the rear facing to be more reclined in my opinion. I do like this feature because I feel like with other car seats in the rear facing position especially, you are putting a towel under them so they are level, with this plastic piece that is no longer needed. I also love the fact that you can adjust the top headrest with one lever. The headrest will adjust into 8 positions. Only drawback to this seat is it wont be a high back booster, however considering it is both an infant seat and a forward facing seat, this one is a great option. Also has a built in cup holder. I didn't see a need for cup holder when they were a baby but now that I have a toddler it is a must.Ky13Mom
Just what I was looking for!
This car seat is perfect & exactly what I was wanting. It fits perfect rear facing in my 2015 Kia Optima with a lot of extra room too! My favorite feature of this car seat would have to be the "Threading System". Other car seats, you have to take them out of the car & rethread them but this one, you just push a button & the head rest moves up & down & the straps go with it! Perfection! We got this when my son was 7.5 months old & 22 lbs. He was getting too heavy to be lugging around in his infant seat. He fits perfect in this seat with a ton more room to grow. I also love this print & color (Steven). It will definitely hide the kid stains. This seat also comes with a cushion that is super thick almost gel type cushion & looks very comfortable. All in all, I would definitely suggest this car seat! We are a Graco family. (We also have a 3-n-1 graco nautilus for my older child. She is 5 & 50lbs & is still in the harness (until 65lbs).)AHappyCustomer
Great car seat
Ordered this car seat when my baby turned one. It's a great car seat, incredibly easy to install, and the seat is so soft and comfortable. My little guy absolutely loves it.Kari
Good car seat, comfortable for the kids
Already had one that I liked, so when I needed a second one it wasn't much of a decision to make. Only issue (with both my original and this new one) is the release mechanism for the bottom safety belt is difficult to get to actually release. Fortunately, it is rare that the seat has to be removed, so not that big of a deal. Seat covers are easily removed and re-installed for easy cleaning. Straps are easily adjustable to fit kid.CoBeachbum
My sweet girl loves this seat!
We just stepped up from the Snugride to this big girl seat and she is so much more comfortable. She is almost 20 pounds and the car seat is perfect. You could tell that she knew something was different! The seat is a cinch to install and take out should you need to. Buckles are easy, but secure and adjustment for size happens with just one handle. I am planning to get the same model for my husband's truck.tlincic
Love it!
I purchased this for my 2 year old daughter and she loves it! Still fits her even after having it for 7 months! She is almost 3 and we don't have to worry about her growing out of it too fast. This is a great car seat! Can't say enough good things about it.Jill
