Evenflo SureRide DLX Review
If you’re in need of a car seat, I can’t wait to tell you about the Evenflo SureRide DLX because I couldn’t be more pleased! Around 6 months old, my grandson really started hating his infant car seat because he couldn’t sit up and look out the window. As he has grown, I felt the infant seat didn’t really offer him enough protection or enough room and wanted to find something bigger. The Evenflo SureRide DXL is well constructed and provides a safe seat for my grandchild. The seat is rear facing and forward facing for when the my grandson reaches the intended weight, age, and height requirements.
The most important thing about this car seat is that it has superior safety ratings! This is what I look at first when looking for a seat to protect my little grandson. There is actually no assembly involved with this seat. When you open the box, the seat comes out fully assembled. This seat is very solid and secure. It was easy to put into our car. Installing was pretty easy with both LATCH and seat belt. I had heard complaints about the latches on this seat but I didn’t have a problem. It’s lightweight, the straps are easy to adjust on our little man, and seems to be a very comfortable seat. He’s usually asleep within 15 minutes into our driving time. I love that its adjustable as they grow and it can face backwards or forwards! It’s great knowing as he gets bigger, he can use the same car seat.
I was impressed with the quality of the material. It is very soft and has held up well so far. It is well padded and my grandson looks very comfortable. This is one of the most padded car seats I’ve seen! The gray and black color allows the to seat blend in without clashing with the car’s interior. This seat is very easy to get my grandson in and out of compared to the others that we have tried. It’s also very easy to adjust the harness and tighten once he is strapped in which has been a problem for me with other seats. I definitely see it lasting not only for my grandson, but also for another child when he outgrows it. My grandson is 7 months old so he’s still rear facing. He looks so comfortable and he sits like a little prince in this car seat. Like he is snuggled up in a comfortable recliner, he is loving it! The side impact protection is a little bulky but is very comfortable without blocking his view. I do like the size and feel of this car seat, and my grandson seems to like it too. There’s plenty of padding for my sweet baby. Keeps him snug and secure, which is so important to me. I feel safe putting him in this seat. You can tell he just woke up after a ride.
One of the best things I like about this seat is the ease to clean it. You can remove the padding without having to take the car seat out, and the cup holder is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. Spills are not going to be as big a deal on they are on other car seat material. Unless it’s a total mess, I don’t think you’ll need to remove it fully, only for occasional deep cleaning. The cup holder is a nice feature. We haven’t added it yet and I wasn’t going to add it until he needed it but I’ve decided it will be a great place to store pacifiers, snacks, and drinks until he is old enough to actually need a cup holder. Overall, there’s nothing I really don’t like about this car seat so far. My grandson isn’t old/large enough to use front facing yet, so I can’t comment on that.
Full protection with side impact protection makes this a car seat I trust. I would definitely recommend this seat, it has all the safety and practicality I look for in a car seat.
