Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzmcpuggends This is my Third One!
I love this car seat. Earlier in the year we were in a car accident which totaled the vehicle. My seven year old was on the impact side in a Nautilus seat with five point harness—I was thankful. The side of the vehicle shifted in four inches and her seat was impacted. She was safe. I immediately replaced the car seat with this new one. This is the third Nautilus car seat I've purchased plus two Nautilus Elites. I recommend them to everyone I know. Why five? I keep one with the five point harness installed in each my two vehicles. One vehicle has a second Nautilus with the belt positioning booster for my nine year old. I had to replace the Nautilus after the car accident. I have never had any breaks, tears, or malfunctions. My children can easily buckle and unbuckle them on their own which eases the process of going on errands. Installation has always been a breeze and I have never had trouble fitting it in nearly every vehicle. I did have trouble putting it in a 2015 Ford F150 until I put it in the middle seat. That was fine since I only had one seat at the time. I've always found them durable. Most of all, I loved how it protected my children when I needed it to. If I need to replace these seats, I will definitely buy another Nautilus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rhead0530 Perfect for 2 and up
One of the things I like about this seat is I find the cover easy to remove and wash. My second favorite is that it reclines. Now, it is not a dramatic recline but just enough for a sleeping tot to get some rest without their head bobbling all over the place. All of my little ones have loved the little storage compartments inside the arms of the seats. The cup holder on this model is also a bonus. I purchased my first Nautilus in 2008 and just retired it because it was expired. I just recently purchases two more for my little ones.
One downside I would say about my recent purchase compared to my previous purchase is that the fabric on the older one seems to be a better quality. It it still breathable but just doesn't seem as sturdy as the fabric on the first one I purchased. I have always been a fan of Graco products. Even though the latch straps are harder to attach and release than other brands I still keep going back to this seat. Another thing I am not a big fan of is the material on the armrests. My older child ruined the rubber on her seat. We still used it for the next child (until the car seat expired) however it looked awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andiegirl Spectacular option for tall children!
My son had just turned 2 years old and already outgrew his forward facing car seat and I was devastated. Being a new mom, I was upset with the thought that my only option was a booster. The thought of not having a five point harness on him terrified me. When i discovered the Nautilus, it seemed heaven sent. He loved that seat and it served us well! Top notch Graco!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amarie7 Great all around seat!!
I bought this car seat for my 4 year old and we love it! It was very easy to install using the LATCH system and does not take up a lot of room in our van. My LO loves the side "secret pockets" to put his favorite things and a personal cup holder for his cup. I like the versatility of the seat when he outgrows the harness mode, we don't have to go buy another car seat when he is in booster mode. Highly recommend this seat for its ease of use, comfort, and reasonable cost!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LexandJustin2008 Love it!
When my husband bought a new car, it became apparent that we'd be using it more as our family car. Because of this I knew I didn't want our car seat in there to be low quality. We bought our 4 year old the Graco Nautilus and we are thrilled with it! She can still use the 5-point harness, or she is tall enough to use the car's seatbelt. I am happy because I know that the seat is secure either way since it has a latch system. She's been a Graco baby since day 1!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ROXIE9319 So far, so good!
Just got and haven't had great-granddaughter in yet. Babysitting tomorrow and will test it. But after hearing horror stories about installing car seats I cannot believe how easy/simple it was/is to install in My 2012 RAM Quad-cab center rear seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mom24girls Graco is the Best
Bought this carseat for my daughter before she turned one and I love how easiy it is to install. Once its in its very secure. And the best feature is it grows with her now that shes about to turn three we were able to adjust it to her height. She is comfortable and doesnt cry like she did with another brand.
