Graco® Contender™ 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass

Graco's Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat, in Brass, holds a rear-facing infant from 5 to 40 lbs. (in baby car seat mode) and a forward-facing toddler in its five-point harness from 20 to 65 lbs. It easily grows with your child with the Simply Safe Adjust harness system, which automatically adjusts both the harness and headrest height. The included LATCH and easy-to-read level indicator offers you hassle-free installation. Contender 65 features a removable head and body support, machine-washable seat pad and two buckle positions to help keep your growing child snug and secure. This seat is Safe Seat Engineered which includes Side Impact Testing and features EPS foam, as do all Graco car seats. Some images below may depict an alternate color. Actual product is Brass.

Product Highlights

  • This Graco convertible car seat is designed to help protect your rear-facing infant from 5 to 40 lbs. (infant car seat) and your forward-facing toddler from 20 to 65 lbs.
  • This car seat comes with Graco's smart Simply Safe Adjust Harness System, one of mom's favorite features on convertible car seats. It's designed to make finding the proper fit for your child safe and simple. The system features a no-rethread harness that automatically adjusts. In fact, you can easily adjust the fit and height with just one hand.
  • Side-impact tested*
    *In addition to meeting or exceeding all applicable US safety standards, the Contender 65 car seat (like all Graco convertible car seats) has been side impact tested for occupant retention solely with the built-in five-point harness system
  • Engineered and crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213
  • One-hand, eight-position adjustable headrest easily adapts to your growing toddler's needs, helping to keep him or her secure in his or her travels
  • LATCH equipped, with an easy-to-read level indicator for hassle-free installation in the rear-facing position
  • EPS, energy-absorbing foam, for effective impact energy management
  • Five-point, front-adjust harness makes getting your little one in and out of the car seat a breeze
  • Conveniently placed cup holder keeps drinks within reach of little hands, so your tiny travel companion remains content
  • Removable head and body support keep baby comfy
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be rear-facing until age two or until they reach the maximum rear-facing height and weight rating for their seat and that the child stays harnessed as long as possible.
  • Brass fashion: Lightly textured gray and charcoal solids are highlighted with soft yellow accents, creating a sophisticated style that's more than ready for boys and girls on the go.
Infant Car Seat to Car Seat for Toddlers
The Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat goes from rear-facing baby car seat (for your child from 5 to 40 lbs.) to forward-facing toddler car seat (from 20 to 65 lbs.).
Easy-Adjust Convertible Car Seats
Like a number of Graco convertible car seats, the Contender 65 includes the Simply Safe Adjust Harness System, which allows you to adjust the harness and headrest height together, with no rethreading.
Car Seats with Smart Engineering
Graco car seats are designed to help keep your child safe on all of your journeys together. Safe Seat Engineering, EPS and more give parents peace of mind.
Easy-to-Use, Two-Position Recline
Rotate flip foot from front to back position to change recline when you're switching the convertible car seat from rear-facing to front-facing.

I bought the graco contender a couple weeks ago for my second child, he is growing so fast and I am expecting my third before he even turns 1. I figured it would be good to get him use to a new car seat. My other child is in an evenflo seat which he loves but it's bulky so I decided on the graco contender. It's not bulky has nice soft cushion to keep my baby comfortable has a cup holder but my son can't seem to reach his bottle in it yet (he is only 9 mo). It's easy to get him in and out of the car seat and was easy to install in the car. I only have one concern with the graco contender. It seems to slide alittle in the seat. I have it buckled in as tight as I can get it. And i can still wiggle it around. I will be taking it to the fire department to see if they can get it tighter and more secure other than that I think it's a good convertible car seat.

I bought this car seat because my son out grew his Graco 35 infant seat. I made my decision based on reviews from buyers online and Consumer Reports' safety report. This seat seemed to be the best for safety at a reasonable price. I also drive a small car (Chevy Cruze) so I needed a seat that would fit in such a small car and still be rear facing. Once the seat arrived, I could not believe how large it was. It barely fit in my car rear facing- the passenger had to be all the way up. While the extendable head rest is very easy to use, if my child got any taller, it would NOT fit in the car. And you can forget using a seat belt to strap it in- the new seat belts don't lock it in place and make it go side ways so it's not secure at all. You have to use the latch system. Overall, it is bulky, difficult to install if you're going to need to take it in & out- but is very comfortable & easy to clean. I do think once it's forward facing it will be a great seat, but for now- it's a pain.

          Baby girl loves her new car seat. Very convenient to have a little cup holder. She will get great use out of this since it's a transitional car seat. Nice neutral color.

            Pretty good car seat for the price

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Cup holder
            • No rethreading and easy adjust head rest
            • Price
            • Smaller than most seat

            Cons

            • Only one recline position
            • Probably not good for deep bucket backseats

            Best Uses

              Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Brass:

              This is a really good car seat for the price. I liked that the headrest was easily adjustable and you don't have to re-thread the harness. Since it is a little bit smaller than other convertible car seats the addition of the little cup holder is nice. Although, it can be put into a rearfacing reclining positon for smaller babies, it does not have different position levels like most infant seats have, its either reclined or not. I did ultimately return it because when I strapped my 10 month old in she looked like she was sitting indian style. More than likely because of the angle of the backseat in our Chevy Volt. We ended up buying the extend to fit by Graco, which is a lot bigger than this one but she has some growing room now.

                        My husband and I needed a new car seat for our daughter, because the infant one she had was hard and uncomfortable. You could tell she was not happy when sitting in the seat. We went to BabiesRUs and browsed the convertibles. We didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a seat, and we wanted something that would last her a while. We finally stumbled on this seat and I immediately liked it! It had a bottom portion that you flip depending on if you use it front or rear facing, so it sat securely in the car. Other things I like about the seat: 1) price- it was very reasonable considering other convertibles can cost $250-300 2) it has good amount of padding 3) it is SUPER EASY to adjust the straps- all you do is raise the head level and it automatically adjusts the height of the shoulder strap 4) the color is unisex 5) it's not super bulky, yet my daughter has a lot of room in it.
