Most Helpful Reviews on the Evenflo Triumph 65 LX Convertible Car Seat.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 8/3/2011 – PROS: 1) The Infinite Slide Harness is really easy to use. No having to rethread! 2) The harness tightening system took me a few minutes to figure out but also is very convenient…. 5) The crotch strap has a few positions, the furthest one being far enough out that it fit even my 40 lb almost 4- year old son…. CONS:… 2) The chair is pretty big… 3) The straps did not come with the little cushiony things on them…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 5/11/2012 – I’ve been very happy with my other evenflo products, but this seat is awful. the mechanism to tighten and loosen the straps is a terribly placed knob that is ALMOST unusable in the rear facing position. Its hard to access, noisy to use and really difficult to turn…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 12/15/2011 – … From what I understand from my husband, installation is not too difficult. Also, the seat is stable, the straps are pretty easy to adjust, and the seat fits rear-facing behind the front passenger side seat of our Dodge Caliber–not a large car. It would not fit rear-facing behind the driver’s side and still allow for a comfortable driving experience for most average-sized people. On the cosmetic side, the fabric is comfortable, and the colors are attractive. We’ve been using our for just under a month, and recently had our first occasion to wash the seat cover…. (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/23/2012 – … It’s easy to install and I feel like the tension knobs he lp me ensure they’re safe and secure. In addition, they have ample padding which makes them seemingly very comfortable – my daughter has never once complained. Plus, it goes up to 65 lbs which is higher than most other convertible seats so it last longer. I would strongly encourage anyone looking for a safe and reliable carseat to use this one.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 1/16/2013 – … I find it very easy to get him in and out of and love the adjustable straps, so I can get a perfect fit everytime (even if he is wearing a winter jacket one day and a t-shirt the next). I have no issues taking this out of my car and putting it into another one, if we need to switch…. I love that it allows rear-facing children to be up to 40 lbs as my son is almost 30 pounds and I hope to keep him rear-facing until he is 2…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
