Graco® Contender™ 65 Convertible Car Seat - Chili Red

Graco's Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat, in Chili Red, holds a rear-facing infant from five - 40 lbs. (in baby car seat mode) and a forward-facing toddler in its five-point harness from 20 - 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 Chili Red.

Product Highlights

  • This Graco convertible car seat is designed to help protect your rear-facing infant from five - 40 lbs. (infant car seat) and your forward-facing toddler from 20 - 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 & 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 her secure in 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.
  • Chili Red fashion: The cool Chili Red fashion is just right for any baby on-the-go. It features bright red, charcoal gray and taupe for a perfectly fun, gender-neutral style.
Infant Car Seat to Car Seats for Toddlers
The Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat goes from rear-facing baby car seat (for your child from five - 40 lbs.) to forward-facing toddler car seat (from 20 - 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.
Comfortable Car Seat for Growing Child
This car seat's front-adjust, five-point harness makes getting your child out of the convertible car seat easy.

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for an honest review; however, all opinions are 100% my own. Our daughter is a little over 2 years old and is forward facing. She stands roughly 3 feet tall and weighs around 30 pounds. The first thing we noticed was that it was easy to install. The side of the car seat has a ball that tells you if it is sitting even (and trust me, my 9 year old tells us every time we are in the car if it is in the blue or not! Blue = good.) Hubby liked the fact that we didn't have to move the straps by loosening and tightening through the back. You know how most car seats you have to loosen the actual straps? This car seat has a "Simply Safe Adjust Harness System" where you can adjust the straps with one hand and not messing with the actual pulling out, tightening of the straps. My older kids enjoy it because they are given more room. My son is still in a booster seat and my oldest no longer has a booster or car seat, but they both have extra room on either side of this car seat (that sits in the middle). This car seat makes my daughter look tiny in comparison when she is sitting in it - her last one made her sit up taller, but it wasn't nearly as padded as this car seat. I feel like she's more protected in this one - almost like she is completely encompassed in all the padding that will help protect her if needed. I don't know if she's being sassy, but she has complained a few times of the straps digging into her shoulders (she is a little over 2 years old). We have adjusted them and made sure they aren't really digging into her so we haven't quite figured out if it's the seat or her (we can put our finger under the strap so we are certain it isn't in fact digging in, but I'm not sure if it's uncomfortable for her for another reason.) The cup holder is a bonus. She keeps her sippy cup in there, her paci, her toys - whatever the item of the day is! Overall, we are incredibly happy with this car seat and would recommend it to others, as well as purchase again.

Loved this seat til today...

We bought this seat & have loved it! However I'm highly disappointed to learn there is not an option to order replacement straps for it! My daughter puked all over the place while in the car on Saturday. I have attempted to clean the straps per the owners manual guidelines, I can not get the vomit smell out! I called today to see what else I could do to clean the straps & my only option is to do what I've already done. The straps do not come out therefore can not be replaced. Not smart design when dealing with babies/kids!! So now, if I can't get the vomit smell out then I'm going to have to spend money to replace the seat :-( Overall we LOVE This seat & actually have 2 of them. My best friend also just bought one because we love ours. However this incident might change my mind if I have to replace the whole seat over some vomit on the straps!

This was a great transition seat from our carrier baby seat. It's got lots of padding and has an adjustable headrest. It was super easy to install as well.

Fits better than I thought and looks great!

By Patienceaimee

from Undisclosed

Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Chili Red:

I found that this car seat was in Consumer Reports Top 5 Convertible Car Seats for 2016 before I bought it. We had it bought for us as a gift and had read reviews stating that it was great overall but sometimes had a hard time fitting in smaller cars when placed in the rear facing position. I drive a Hyundai Accent, and while the car seat is tight, it fits. I only gave the product 4 stars because I need just an inch or so maybe of extra room. My husband is tall and has a hard time adjusting the driver's seat back to drive. But it works for us, and he's still able to fit in the front and drive with a little maneuvering. I know all that will be resolved in the next year when the seat can face forward. We love the ease of adjustability for the seat harness as well as height of the seat as my son grows taller. Plus the safety features were my main focus when researching on Consumer Reports! My son loves the space compared to his infant seat and LOVES his cup holder. The color we got was a blue teal color and looks more stunning than I thought the online pictures showed. We would definitely buy it again!

Comments about Graco Contender 65 Convertible Car Seat - Chili Red:

I've used this for a week now and while I read all the reviews and thought this would work in my 2010 Ford Escape, it just does not! I am 5'1" and the car seat fits behind me. If you are any taller or regularly have a passenger in your car like my husband who is 6' pick another seat. If you have a big baby you will struggle to get them into and out of the seat while it is rear facing. Also whoever thought it would be a good idea to create a car seat without built in strap holders was dead wrong. I truly miss that feature from the Graco SnugRide 35 infant car seat.
