Evenflo SureRide DLX Review



Consumers say the Evenflo SureRide DLX is easy to install and provides a comfortable ride. It can hold a child up to 65 pounds, exceeding the weight limits of other low-cost convertible car seats by 10 pounds or more. The seat comes with a removable and machine-washable seat pad.

In Evenflo SureRide DLX reviews on Amazon, parents note the high weight limits on this convertible car seat. Many seem to have bought it to accommodate older toddlers in a five-point harness longer than many other models would have allowed. Although the Evenflo SureRide DLX (starting at $85, Amazon) is a bigger car seat to hold bigger kids and weighs the most of any we reviewed, it impresses parents with its painless installation in most cars. Reviewers at Toys R Us say they've had no problems moving it or installing it. Several parents also praise the padding. One mother reports that it breathes well, providing a comfortable and cool ride for her daughter in the North Carolina heat, while another describes the padding as soft and comfortable.

The Evenflo SureRide DLX holds children up to 40 pounds and 40 inches tall in the rear-facing position. It transports children who weigh 22 pounds to 65 pounds and measure 28 inches to 54 inches tall in the front-facing position. The car seat itself weighs 13.6 pounds. The five-point harness offers six shoulder-height positions and two buckle positions. This car seat also comes equipped with the LATCH system for buckling into the vehicle and a removable, machine-washable seat cover.

Highly adjustable, five-point harness? Check. High weight and height limits? Check. Easy installation? Check. Machine-washable seat pad? Check. What more do you need in a cheap car seat? Evenflo SureRide DLX reviews provide assurance that this model is safe, comfortable, and easy to maneuver. The bottom line: You'd be hard-pressed to find a better budget car seat.
