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.).

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.

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.

This is a cost-effective car seat. It's nice because it has no rethread a harness where you can just move the seat back up as the baby grows. It works until the child is 65 pounds. The one thing that I found really hard about this car seat is that the latch a system is very difficult to tighten. So difficult that I had to use it with a seatbelt instead of the latch as I couldn't get it tight enough. The latch system also just has the simple hooks instead of the buckle with the latch making it difficult to get out when you need to get the car seat out. I found a great deal on the Graco 4ever car seat and I actually love that car seat instead. I returned the Contender to get the Graco 4everr. It is a more expensive seat but it also lasts until 100 pounds. And the latch and the latch is so easy to remov on the 4ever. I don't know why Graco doesn't make the Contender with the easy hook latch system. They need to do a better job making user friendly seats at base models so kids are tightened effectively and safely.

shoulder straps

By Dan Mallory

from Undisclosed

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

This car seat does not come with shoulder pads for shoulder straps which causes a red rash when the neck of the child rubs against it. I feel like shoulder pads should be included with this item

Awesome features and super cute

By CtB2016

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

We bought this seat almost a year ago and are just now able to use it for our 10.5 month old. The seat is great because of the adjustable headrest and the easy to adjust straps. My daughter loves her big girl seat and doesn't fuss when it's time to get in the car. Thank you Graco for making such a great seat that my daughter can grow up with.

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

I just want to say thank you for making such well made car seats. We were involved in an accident our expedition rolled over 3 times and our son was unharmed and if it wasn't for the Graco car seat I don't even want to think about what would have happen to my baby. So thank you and we will be buying another car seat just like it... â˜*â˜*â˜*â˜*â˜*â˜*â˜*

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

I have only had this car seat for a few days and my son and I both love it. It's comfortable for him, not to mention even in the rear facing position he is high enough to be able to see out of the window.

LOVE IT!

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

We actually just put my 2 month old in here because he was getting to tall for his infant car seat that was frankly uncomfortable. In this it's secure and we NO fuss! Not even a peep sometimes and he falls asleep soooo easily. The only downside is you don't have the luxury of just taking them in and out without disturbing their sleep but small price to pay for their comfort. Really glad we switched him out! As a first time parent I wish someone would have told me sooner!

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

I have not had any problems with this carseat at all. We got it when my daughter was about 6 months old and She is 3 now and switched her to a booster. It is an amazing seat.
