WASHINGTON, June 11 — Only two of the 68 child safety seats tested for ease of use in the government’s first-ever such rating score an “A” in all five categories. Two models of the Graco Comfort Sport got an “A” in every category tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which released the ratings Wednesday. No seat got below a “B” for an overall rating.

What I wish I could find is the online list tht shows which seats worked best in which model cars !! You'd think they'd link them to each to other....

I found Elizabeth's on the list and it got all A's and one B. The B was for mainly having to tip and tilt the seat when removing it from the base. That's true. I'm glad to know that it scored well overall.

I couldn't find Alexander's booster seat on the list.

I had bought the graco comfort sport when Ash grew out of her infant seat.
I took it back the same day.

It would have been an awesome seat for foward facing only but we needed it rear facing fo a good 7 months longer.

The strap adjuster for the harness was so low on the front of the seat that when it was installed there was no way to reach it and adjust for proper fit. I had called the company and asked if they were planneing to reposition it in future car seats and they said no.
They got a whole mess of bad reviews for rear facing.
I haven't looked up my seat that I have yet but I am on my way to do that now.

I know when we out Rachelle in her rear/forward facing carseat, we had to use the LATCH belt to hook under one of the front seats, because no matter what we tried that stupid thing moved around! Hopefully in the minivan, when we put Issac in one it will work better. He's about to outgrow his infant seat!
