Britax Roundabout 55

I just ordered two of these on Amazon for a great price with free shipping. The Graco convertible seats we were given by my friend are starting to get a little snug on Selin (the straps won't loosen any further, despite my DH's recent attempts).

Does anyone own the Roundabout? It seemed to have overwhelmingly good reviews on Amazon and since it's a Britax, I'm sure you can't go wrong with any of their seats.

We have a 4DR

Christine I know I am late to the game on this, but I love the graco myride 65 that we have. but I know a friend of mine has the roundabout and likes it. :) We have the evenflo symphony and I really don't like it all that much. The evenflo one tightens at the bottom (where the crotch clip is) and tends to pinch her tummy (it could be just because she is small).

Hope they work out for you!!

So sad about car-seat I will have to check out the other site.

Thanks Grace. They arrived today so we'll see how we like them.

I honestly don't know the model of the Graco seats we have. I know I have an owner's manual on my DH's laptop but just too lazy to go look it up right now, lol.

Glad you like your Outback! Now DH is eyeing the Passat as well. Men, constantly changing their minds!!

I have one for David Christine. It doesn't have as high a weight limit as other seats, but I figure that's ok since my kids are small, and I'm using it for my smaller child, I figure I can switch them back and forth between seats to get the longest rear facing/5 point harness time for each of them. Which Graco seat do you have? I have the myRide 65 for James and really like it.

We also have a Subaru outback, but it's older (2000). We really like it though!

try instead. That being said, they are decent seats, they aren't my top choice, or even in my top 5, but they are good seats, should get most children rear-facing to at least 2 and are fairly easy to install, all positive points.

Thank you for the sig Mary
