Evenflo Tribute DLX Review

Caregivers who need a small car seat to fit into a small car express gratitude in Evenflo Tribute DLX reviews. They write on the Toys R Us website that they're very pleased with how compact the seat is. One parent reports that it's a perfect fit in his backseat even with two other car seats and several point out that it makes a great airplane travel seat. Reviews on Amazon add that it's a perfectly reasonable size to lug through airports and easy to install in an airplane seat. This no-frills car seat is the most basic we saw but also one of the cheapest, and users report that it seems comfortable, sturdy, and secure.

The Evenflo Tribute DLX (starting at $55, Amazon) is the lightest car seat we found, weighing in at just 9.11 pounds. It has four shoulder-strap positions and a five-point harness. Several parents gush about how easy it is to adjust the straps. When this model is used as a rear-facing car seat, the recommended height and weight ranges are 5 to 40 pounds and 19 to 37 inches. Facing forward, the seat can accommodate 22 to 40 pounds and 28 to 40 inches. Like the others featured here, this car seat uses the LATCH system.

It may be the cheapest car seat we reviewed, but the Evenflo Tribute DLX has a lot going for it besides price. It's small enough to easily fit into compact cars or in a row of multiple car seats. It comes highly recommended for air travel and many reviewers mention having bought it for grandparents to use when they take the kids. With mostly positive reviews, this simple, cheap car seat is a good choice if you have a particularly tight budget or tight space.
