  • Not sure if there has been any changes to the design of this model since 2012, this seat is extremely difficult to clean. It has a lot of hide always for baby to store unwanted food. Dec 28, 2018

  • We have this one for our son and its comfortable love the cup holder and cubbyholes. It is a little bulky and heavy if you have to switch it car to car but over all it was a great choice! Dec 18, 2018

  • Nice car seat for the price. Very easy to install and use. My only complaint is that it is very difficult to adjust the crotch seat belt buckle to the other settings to adjust as child grows. Dec 18, 2018

  • Great seat. My 7 year old has had it since he was 2! Easy to transform to the next level. Dec 09, 2018

  • I love this car seat so much I have three of them! It’s comfortable and my 78lb 5 year just retires from the harness and I don’t have to buy a booster since this turns into one! Nov 13, 2018

  • Love how it transitions with age. Has held up great now for almost 6 years. Oct 21, 2018

    I have had several of these car seats. Bought the first one in 2012 after I needed a forward facing car seat for my child. The car seats itself is pretty heavy. It is pretty easy to install. Oct 17, 2018

  • Got this when it first came out. My daughter still uses it as a backless booster. It’s served all her needs from toddlerhood up to age 8. Love it! Oct 13, 2018

  • Have this for our 2 1/2 year old wish it reclined a little more Sep 04, 2018

  • I love that this is the last car seat I’ll have to buy! Totally and safely grows with my child! Aug 31, 2018

  • The graco Nautilus 3-1 is a very good car seat, easy to adjust the straps and pretty lightweight Although I like it, I found it difficult to install with latch, is was hard to undo the latch strap Aug 12, 2018

  • Easy to use car seat. Aug 11, 2018

  • I truly regret buying this. When my daughter falls asleep. It doesn't recline. She is uncomfortable and someone has to hold her head everytime the car breaks. Aug 11, 2018

  • Great car seat for my toddler. Very sturdy and love the color. The only issue is when he falls asleep there’s no head/neck support. I would definitely recommend this product. Aug 02, 2018

    We have multiple of these and love them. Very good price and can be used for a long time! Jul 25, 2018

  • I have this seat now but looking for a new one as my son exceeded the weight limit and I was hoping he wouldn't. Kind of narrow and had a hard time keeping the cover Velcro on. So it keeps coming off Jul 14, 2018

  • We have this seat in my husband's car. It is a nice basic seat. My son likes the cupholders. Our model doesn't have a no re-thread harness so it isn't easy to switch between children. Jul 11, 2018

  • Love that it reclines. Jul 10, 2018

  • Q: Im looking for a middle of the road priced car seat for a second car. Would people recommend this or not? Seems like a lot of people find the buckles tough to strap?
