I was just in a bad car accident this past week with my son in the Graco SnugRide32 Model #1750168 (red and brown - not sure if shown here as an option in color). The other driver ran a red light, and I crashed into him head on into the driver side of his car, going around 40 mi/hr. My car is totaled. My 21-month old child was in this car seat in the back seat behind the passenger side. I still had it rear-facing. He is absolutely fine, went to the hospital just in case, and he was discharged the same night. By law, when your car seat (whether a child is in it or not) is in an accident, it must be replaced. I am 7 mo. pregnant, so I am buying the same seat for my daughter who is coming this winter (who so far seems to be fine from the accident - thank goodness).
Though a tad heavy, I am so happy I was able to keep my son rear-facing for this long because of this seat. (I also hear that people are starting to recommend rear-facing as old as age two.) When my son was an infant, it didn't seem so heavy, and as a mom, your strength grows as your child grows. It only got difficult in the last couple of months because I was pregnant again. Safety was number #1 priority for me, so it is a small price to pay for the added weight.
The base is very easy to install and move from car to car - 30 seconds or so.
My son would get a little hot sleeping in it at times. However, he slept very peacefully in it (and in the beginning, it was the only place he would sleep even at night), and as of last week, I would still sometimes take him for a car ride in this seat to get him down for a nap when he would not want to go down.Read more ›
My main reservation about the Snugride 32 is that it (at least in our experience) is not likely to work through 32 lb/ 32 in. My son is now 11 months old and 20 pounds and we're shopping for a new seat. The problem? The Snugride 32's harness. Although he has plenty of headroom and foot room, the harness (which I have let out as far as it will go) is painfully snug. My son is slim (10th percentile for weight) and never wears anything bulkier than a light jacket or sweatshirt because we live in FL. Nevertheless, the harness is extremely tight. If you have a heavier baby or live somewhere with cold weather, expect this problem to occur well before 11 months.
If I had it to do over, I'd consider buying a regular carrier that goes to 20ish pounds--that's about all you'll get out of the S32 unless they correct this issue in future models.
