Product Description

The Graco Smart Seat All-in-One car seat is the ultimate in car seat longevity. This convertible car seat fits your child from 5-100 lbs & features a convenient stay-in-car base so you only have to install the base one time! For your child's safety, the Smart Seat has been side impact tested & SafeSeat Engineered. Both the car seat & the car seat base are steel-reinforced for strength and durability. Graco's new and improved harness buckle is easier to use. For parent's ease of use, there is a one-hand height adjustable head rest with no-thread harness as well as an on-the-go recline so you can recline your child without having to re-install the seat. NHTSA has recognized Graco's Smart Seat with the highest government rating for Ease of Use in all Modes. All car seats rated by NHTSA meet Federal Safety Standards & strict crash performance standards. While all rated seats are safe, they do differ in their ease of use in four basic categories: evaluation of instructions, vehicle installation features, evaluation of labels, and securing the child. Smart Seat received a five star rating in this evaluation.

Trade in your old car seat!

I am a pediatrician who was previously a firefighter and paramedic trained to install car seats. After researching almost every car seat, I finally decided on this car seat to protect my first child. All car seats meet or exceed the national highway safety administration requirements IF they are installed correctly. As a firefighter I installed hundreds of car seats and upon arrival at the fire station, I would estimate that 99% of them were installed incorrectly. If a car seat even moves just slightly on the seat, it is not installed correctly. It should be installed so tightly that the entire car shakes when you try and move the car seat.

Overall, I'd recommend this product to my patients. However, because of the price, I recommend trading in you old car seat during one of Toys R Us or Babies R Us' trade-in events to get 25% off of the car seat. I'd also recommend getting an extra base for each additional car you own.

I chose this car seat because of the base that is installed once and is used for both rear and forward facing positions. That means less chances for error and improper installation. The base is much easier to install. Older car seats installed in a vehicle with w/o latch anchors require 2 people to install correctly. I was able to easily install this in my 1992 Honda Accord by myself. The installation into my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ anchors was 10x easier. Once the base is installed, the seat can be easily adjusted to keep it at the correct level. Furthermore, the seat is rated for up to 40 lbs for rear facing infants which meets the American Academy of Pediatrics new recommendation for rear facing until 2 years old.

In addition, the car seat has a steel frame which greatly increases the strength of the seat. If you have more than one vehicle, I would definitely recommend this car seat with additional bases.

CONS: Because of the steel frame, the seat is heavier than most seats and the large size makes it difficult to move from vehicle to vehicle. In my 1992 Honda, the passenger seat needs to be moved up all the way. However, when installed in the rear center seat of my 2004 Jeep Cherokee and 2005 Dodge Ram, the both front seats can be adjusted easily. However, my wife has not had any difficulty moving the seat from my Honda to the Jeep and vice versa.

This is definitely a sturdy seat that would be very protective in the event of a crash, which is the ultimate job of a carseat. I also like that it can recline further back, so he can nap on road trips without his head slumped over onto his chest.
That said, I do have a few annoyances about the seat:
1) While it is simple to unlock & snap in/out of the base, it is extremely heavy to move. I can't imagine doing it myself if I were well into another pregnancy.
2) The polyester material gets very hot in the sun, so I usually keep a thinner, white blanket in the car that I can put behind my son so his back isn't burning. He has been saying, "Mommy hot!" all summer every time he gets in the seat :(
3) The fabric does wash very well, but it is a HUGE pain to take off & put back on the seat. There are 10+ different buttons or straps that have to be removed (or put back on) from hard to reach places. I have long skinny fingers, and I still struggle every time I wash it, which I do monthly based on sweat and occasional spills.
4) the cup holder is too far away; my son is in the 100th percentile for height & can still barely reach it at 21 mos.

Comments about Graco Smart Seat All-in-One Car Seat - Larkin:

This is the best seat ever! It is big and heavy but we don't take it out of the car. My 1 year old is still rear facing and we were able to do it with this seat. The harness moves with the headrest so that took a little figuring out. Otherwise this is a great product. It does take up a lot of space so be prepared. Your guest might not ride so comfortably if you don't have a big backseat.

    We wanted a forward facing convertible seat that we could use in 2 different cars. My husband travels a lot for work & when he has colleagues in the car with him, it easier for them to fit with just a base and not an entire seat (many people asked why we didn't just buy 2 seats). My daughter loves her 'big girl chair' & we love the high safety standards

    Comments about Graco Smart Seat All-in-One Car Seat - Larkin:

    This car seat is very well padded for comfort and seems to be very safe and sturdy. However those are about the only good qualities. Despite reading in reviews that this car seat is heavy and large, i thought i would give it a try. BAD IDEA!! This car seat is HEAVY!! It was difficult to install for that reason and also It is large, however most convertible car seats on the market are this size or larger.
    The one i received did not have a cup holder with it, and I couldn't get a replacement from Graco or Babies R Us. That was one of the main reasons i ordered this particular seat. It was also missing some the should strap pads and the instructions. So in the end i ended up returning it and buying the Graco My Size65.

    I Own 2 of these car seats. One for my 3 year old, and 19 month old. Love that they have 3 reclining positions for when the kids fall asleep in the car. They are a little expensive, but you can't put a price on safety when it comes to your kids. Worth the investment because it is a 3 stage seat, so after the infant car seat, it is the last car seat my kids will own and outgrow. They are a little bulky, heavy, and do take up the entire back seat. Easy to install and adjust as well.

      People have said this item is heavy and hard to get in and out. For our family we don't plan on taking it in and out of the car so the extra "bulk" makes us feel our baby is a little safer! So far the only issue has been the arm rests, they are great to have, but don't move very easily.

        My 7 month son was getting too big for his infant car seat and we wanted to get him a convertible. When we got to the store they didn't have the one I wanted, but my husband and I were determined to get him a new car seat that day. I wanted to stick to Graco and I saw this one. I wasn't too sure on the reviews since I hadn't researched it. I pulled out my phone and looked it up online and watched a couple of youtube videos on it and nothing but great responses came back. It has a hefty price tag but we went for it. My husband installed it the same day and he was amazed at how sturdy and durable it is. The base only has to be installed once and he loved that. It goes up to 100 pounds so we don't have to worry about buying another car seat which is great. The baby had more room in this one as well. We haven't gone anywhere yet in it but so far with the installation features i really like it.

          Comments about Graco Smart Seat All-in-One Car Seat - Larkin:

          We originally purchased this product becuase my husband and I both drop off and pick up. This way we only needed 2 bases and not 2 car seats. Over the 2 years in owning this seat I have grown to slowly loathe and hate this car seat. The issues we have are that it is extremely heavy for one. The seat itself has levers on the side that you push in and turn to release the seat. Ours does not even turn any more and the paddles that are under the seat area we used to try and pull up to get the seat out of the base. Those paddles are now broke and therefore we can no longer put this in the base. I was to the point before they broke that I would slide the metal bar under the seat in and out to release and lock the seat in place. I have had to take the seat apart for cleaning, and the foam does not stay in place. It falls out and I had to replace that piece as well. So, all in all, we are now looking for a new seat and definetly not one like this one. We have been disappointed as we had rave reviews about it at first. However, sadly our experience has not been such a rave time. Graco makes good products, but this one needs quite a bit of adjustments to improve the product.

          My son is a former micro preemie and we have to make regular 2 hour trips to his hospital. We had been using another seat and he would scream the entire time home. We bought ours in the same city as his hospital and installed it before going home. He was asleep before we left the city limits, a first since swapping from his baby car seat.
          It Ida bit of a pain to clean and I wish the cup holder could swap side (he has limited use do his right hand).
          We are going to buy another for his little sister during Trade-in, where it is less expensive.
