I needed to adjust the straps when I took it out of the box, and it took perhaps 5 minutes to make the necessary adjustments. Not bad for a kiddo carseat. The cloth is easy to remove and it says it is machine washable, another plus. The belts are sturdy, and the fasteners are perfect for adults - just the right amount of force needed to open them so my daughter cannot undo herself.
The only downside we've noticed is that there is not much support for comfort along the sides of the carseat. My daughter's other seat has 'wings' along the head, so if she falls asleep her head stays cushioned and comfortable. There's not much in the way of head support on this seat, so when she falls asleep her head lolls a bit.
Overall, excellent purchase for the money!
When it came time for us to upgrade our Car Seat from the convertible to a high back booster, we originally went with the Graco Turbo Booster. While that one is fine, easy to assemble and grows with the child up to 100lbs, we found that our daughter could easily unlatch the seat belt and free herself while we were driving. Since she was in the backseat, one of us would have to turn around and re-buckle her, or pull over completely and do it if alone driving. It was really annoying, and as much as we told her not too, that it was dangerous, etc., she's 3 and still will do it. So we decided to order the same one as Grampa, and boy are we happy we did!
Here are the Pro's and Cons:
Graco Turbo Booster:
Price is reasonable $49.
Grows with the child 30-100lbs, goes from a high back booster to a regular booster without the back. Colors and patterns are fun. Easily switches between cars (because it is not hooked into a cars LATCH system, it just rests on the seat of the car and the child's weight holds it in place(along with the seat belt over the child's body).
Cup holders on either side which slide into the seat when not in use.
Is NOT SECURED to the car through LATCH (see above) and DOES NOT use a 5 point harness system to hold child in the seat. That being said-this seat has NEVER moved in the time we've had it (about 4 months).
Seat itself is not really padded, our daughter sometimes complains that her back hurts sitting in this seat.Read more ›
I tend to stick to Graco items only but decided to branch outside of the norm for this price because we really needed a car seat to leave for our toddler, with my parents that live out of state, for our twice yearly visits but didn't want to spend too much on an item that wouldn't be used every day all year long.
This car seat is light-weight, cute, easy to get in and out of one vehicle after another and the perfect price for an item that is necessary without spending too much on an item that isn't used daily.

Good for the money. Very good value.
Basic. - No frills,
Would not recommend for prolong trips - very thin padding. But perfectly adequate for daily use.

This seat has been great for us! It's not as wide and bulky as others. Fits well in the back seat of our Jeep. Can't beat the price!Published on December 8, 2012 by cowbug
I thought this seat was a good value. It's safe and the print is cute. I just wish it was a little less reclined.Published on October 12, 2012 by C. Hinkelman
Not a bad car seat for the price. It works fine. My only gripes are that the cup holder is a bit flimsy and pops off the base from time to time. Read morePublished on March 16, 2012 by Sha
