Most Helpful Reviews on the Safety 1st Complete Air 65 Convertible Car Seat.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 8/9/2011 – … When we got the box, you just take the seat out and the instructions are on the back side of the seat. I had no issues with the instructions, the only thing is that i had to put a pool noodle under the seat to recline it back more since my son is only 7 months. We also went to the website to get more information on this car seat and that helped us make this choice. If you are looking for a car seat that is inexpensive, comfortable for your child, safe, and isn’t bulky…this is the car seat to get!  (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)

  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 5/16/2011 – Very comfortable, solid yet lightweight…. Would be perfect if all you need is a front facing seat…. But rear facing, to keep the seat in the “designed” level position, barely fits in my crew cab Ford F-250, which has one of the longest leg room dimensions of any rear seat. When we tried putting it in my wife’s Volvo SUV, no chance without pushing the driver’s seat all the way forward…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 7/26/2010 – … It’s easy to transport between cars and fits n icely on airplane seats! We’ve flown domesically and internationally a few times and I continue to be happy with my purchase…. The only drawback to this seat is that there’s only so much of the fabric you can take off & wash, due to the air bags….  (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 2/22/2011 – It was love at first sight, and the safety information and reviews allowed me to convince my Husband that we should buy this one for my car and another (better deal, less “pretty”, same safety info) for his. HOWEVER, when I took it to the Fire Station to be installed (rear facing), the Fireman told me that this seat is simply too big for my vehicle — which is a Honda PILOT!… Back to the positives though…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
