5.00 rating Great seat for the price! by Kim, FL on January 1, 2004
I have the exact seat but a different cover. I love this seat, We have also had this seat since my sons birth in my husbands car. My son is outgrowing his infant seat and it is time to get another seat and this will still be my next purchase. I would definitely suggest this seat for anyone. My straps never get tangled, and as for the tension buttons, I just set them for a comfortable setting and I don't have to set it except everyonce in a great while. I chose this seat because of the great rating it received from Consumer Reports. ****Note: I read some of the negative reviews and I would like to comment on them. #1 There was a review saying that this seat was not recommended for newborns because of the seat not being able to fully recline. This is true, however can be resolved by putting a rolled up towel under the base of the seat. You can ask any firestation. They will comfirm that, because mine did. #2 The review about having the whole seat turn sideways and trapping the childs hand. This is obviously because the carseat was not installed properly. You can visit any firestation to see if you carseat is installed properly. I did because of peace of mind.
5.00 rating I'm SOOO glad I found this car seat!, by Bradley, Greensboro, NC on January 1, 2004
How could I find a convertible and/or booster seat that would fit my little 2 door Honda Civic hatchback? It was a nightmare. It seems like all of today's carseats are made only for newer cars with the tether system, and my car is 12 years old. I bought several car seats and I kept having to return them to the store. I concluded that I would simply have to purchase a larger car, but after several weeks of car shopping, I realized I couldn't afford to. The answer? Go to www.carseatdata.org Yes, this website actually lists information about SPECIFIC car models and specific car seats. Information submitted by consumers like you and me. Guess what? Everyone said that Evenflo Triumph 5 is a perfect fit in the Honda 2 door! I was sceptical, because Triumph 5 looks huge. It is heavier than other models. The helpful sales associate was also skeptical. She suggested I also try out a Graco which looked smaller. Result? The Graco didn't fit snugly but the Evenflo Triumph is a purrrfect fit. Now my daughter rides snugly. BTW, Consumer Reports gave this model a very favorable safety rating. However, I have NOT tried this as a rear-facing convertible seat. I have only used it for front-facing. My daughter is a year old so it is okay for her to ride front-facing [and she soaks up a lot of scenery that way!]
5.00 rating So easy a baby could do it by Wendy, NJ on January 1, 2004
I love this car seat!! I felt the need to write this review after I had to adjust the strap position up one sincemt now 7 month had grown to tall for the lowest strap setting. Unlike car seats I had for my older 2 kids there was no taking the seat out> It was easily adjusted, so easy to do, i did it while holdinmg my baby in one arm.
5.00 rating We LOVE our carseat for 2 years now! by E.B., Broken Arrow, OK on January 1, 2004
We bought this car seat when my daughter was 14 months old. She is now 3 years old and we are still using this seat. This is our second child and I had a different convertible carseat for my first. We also have a 3rd convertible that we use in my husband's car. So we have 3 different convertible seats that we have used extensively in the last 5 years. By far this is the best convertible seat I have seen! I love the way everything adjusts so easily on this seat. From the straps to the tilt of the seat. The car seat has held up beautifully for the last 2 years. It has been very easy to put my daughter in the seat and buckle her up. On the other two convertible seats I always felt like the straps were lost in the seat when I would set her in there. Not with the Triumph. The seat is also very plush, so she appears very comfortable. I've never heard a complaint from her. I'm not sure why this seat has the negative reviews from the other users. I didn't have any of the problems that they are having. We hope to keep our daughter in this seat until next year (4 years old), when she will graduate into a booster!
