When we turned Addison forward facing at 3 years old, we bought her one. At 4 1/2 she's still harnessed in the Nautilus.



They last 9 1/2 years, there are two expiration dates on the bottom. One for when you need to take the back off, and the other is when to stop using the seat completely. Addison's permanent seat in the vehicle and the extra Nauti, have the same dates. We have to take the back off by Dec 2015, and stop using in Dec 2018.

My 4-1/2 year old rides in one and I love it.

We love it, but I hate clipping the buckles.

I don't have one but plan on getting one really soon for my 2.5 year old. I also think I am going to get one for my 45lb 5 year old b/c it goes to 65lb 5point harnessed. I have tried just a booster with him and don't feel comfortable and he outgrew his other car seat. I have read a TON of great reviews on them.

I've read on Graco's fb page that some people hate the chest clip buckle because their kids can undo it. In my opinion, I love the buckle and have no problem with the fact that Addison doesn't unbuckle herself.

DD has one and it is honestly a decent seat. Only problem with it is it is so freaking heavy, like almost obnoxiously heavy. When we get our tax refund we're upgrading to the Diono Radian

My son has been using it from 15 months until now at 5, harnessed. Its one of the only chest clips he still cannot undo.

We have one and really like it. My only complain is that it's pretty bulky and heavy, so moving it between vehicles sucks. But DS is 4 1/2, 42 inches and 45 lbs, and he's still harnessed with growing room. I also like that it converts to high back and backless booster, so we don't have to buy anymore seats lol

We have a Nautilus and a Britax Frontier for my 5.5 year old. I definitely prefer the Frontier but for the price you can't beat the Nautilus. It's a solid seat for a good price and isn't too bad to install for a Graco. The only downside is that the Nautilus has a lower harness limit than most extended harness seats.
