We bought the Alpha Elite 65 car seat a year ago because it was a top safety pick and because our son was outgrowing his Graco car seat. Over all it has been a good car seat. Below are some draw backs we had when using the car seat.

I HIGHLY SUGGEST THAT BEFORE YOU BUY THIS CAR SEAT YOU TRY IT OUT IN YOUR CAR FIRST! (toyRus will usually let you do this) ESPECIALLY IF YOU PLAN ON USING THIS IN THE REAR FACING OPTION!

Issues-

REAR FACING- Unless you have flat back seats you will probably have to use a fun noodle or rolled up towel to get the car seat in the correct elevated position. This car seat would not fit in our car in the rear facing position. We drive a Toyota Yaris 4 door Sedan (a sub compact) but from the other reviews I have read it won't fit in SUV in the correct position either. This is why you should check to make sure it fits correctly before you buy it.

CLEANING- This car seat is a pain in the butt to clean. I just spent an hour trying to get the washable cover off!!! Removing the harness system is easy except when you have to remove the harness guides. (the little slots in the bottom of the seat where the straps come through).To remove theses harness guides you have to recline the seat all the way forward, reach underneath the car seat with one hand and push while you pull with your other hand from the top of the seat. There is no room to get your hand underneath and close to the guides to properly do this. Its also hard to hold the car seat while you do it. My suggestion is to first remove the harness straps, release all the elastic bands that keep the cover in place and then grab the cover close to the harness guides and give one quick hard tug.

Suggestion- When using forward facing option, the seat must be fully upright and flush against the back of the cars seat. We had to remove the headrests in our car to get the desired effect.

***CURRENT REVIEW*** 7/25/13 (5 stars given)

PROS
-Beautiful seat. Soft fabric. Excellent design.
-Reclines in front & rear facing position
-Large and comfortable. Plenty of room for my 11-month old daughter to grow.
-3-in-1; Rear facing 5-40#, Forward facing 22-65#, booster 40-100# - I will not have to buy another car seat for her until this one expires. Here's hoping she grows out of it before that happens.
-Baby easy in, easy out
-Great safety rating.
-Got it on Amazon.com sale and saved a TON. Thank you, Amazon.

CONS
-Difficult to get strapped into the car in the rear facing position. But not impossible. (See below.)
-Large; I can see why people who own smaller sedans or compact vehicles would want to steer clear of this.
-Without the sale, I would never have purchased this car seat at $250+ (please see initial review below).

Please read initial review for my initial research.

Received this seat very quickly from Amazon.com. Immediately removed it from the box and read the instructions. I also filled out the safety recall ticket and dropped that in the mail box. A previous reviewer had complaints of the manual being hard to read/looking nothing like the seat. I did not notice this. I thought they were simple and straight forward. The photos were very helpful.

After reading the instructions, I placed my daughter in the seat to adjust the straps and headrest to get her well situated before installing it in the vehicle. As I have read every single review on this seat (taking special note of the ones 3 stars or less) I wanted to comment that I had no issues clasping or unclasping the buckle between her legs or over her chest as one reviewer suggested.

I can't not express enough how in love I am with this car seat. I love the different stages it can be and the extra head rest. It gives my baby room without being squeezed into something. Honestly wish I had ordered it sooner.

With three kids, I have owned several car seats and have liked every on -- except this one. It is a constant source of frustration. The straps never adjust correctly. It is never set correctly in the seat. Unfortunately, I bought two at once, and they both have the same problems. My wife hates them as well.

I bought this to transition my daughter from her infant car seat and she was 4 months old and did not fit in it. The straps were still too high and the fire department in my area agreed, so I had to wait until she was 6 months old in order to use it. Also this item is VERY large. I decided to sell it and get a more compact car seat.

I own this seat in a different pattern and it was purchased from babies r us in 2012 or 2013 cant remember exactly. This seat is BIG but safe so that should make up for being so big. I originally had it forward facing in my nissan versa untl we upgraded to a honda cr-v upon finding out #2 was on the way. My daughter loves her seat and it is fairly easy to use. The latch gear with the seat is a pain to clip in and you really have to pull to get it into place but once its there it doesn't move at all. I use a non-slip pad under both my daughters car seats so i guess that may factor into them not moving around as much. The cover holds up well only a few snags and we use it daily for the past 2 years. The cover is tricky to get off but once you practice it gets easier. I would not recommend this to anyone wanting a rear facing seat that has a little car because it just wouldn't work. I'm 5'7" and the seat comes to almost my hip when on my floor. The straps snug down good and if this says anything for ease of use my almost 3 year old can buckle herself in correctly.
If you are looking for a good quality seat that will last a long while i would get this one if you have the vehicle room to house it I am going to buy this model pictured as soon as my youngest daughter is ready for the upgrade. Oh let me just not the 4 star rating is simply because it is so big and heavy i cant use it in my moms 98 nissan altima. LOL makes me mad because the thing wont even fit in the door.
