The Evenflo Triumph 65 LX Convertible Car Seat, Santee had a total of fifty-one Amazon reviews giving it a rating of four out of five stars.
The critical review that was considered to be the most helpful gave the seat a rating of two out of five stars. The reviewer found that the seat’s safety rating and comfort were both pluses. There was a problem with the chest buckle not being easy to release and the lack of a clicking sound to let you know that it is correctly latched. The child’s neck was rubbed by the shoulder straps which were too close together. The lap buckles had to be fished out of the seat each use since they would slide down.
The use of the adjustment knob was obstructed by the seatbelt in the car because it went right over it. The reviewer’s view was obstructed by the height of the seat which was a negative point for them in regards to the size of the seat. The reviewer felt that the seat was an inconvenience to use for a number of years as a result of all the difficulty they had installing it.
The most helpful positive review gave the Triumph 65 LX a rating of four out of five stars. The safety rating and cost were once again positive aspects to the seat. The Triumph 65 fit in the car well even allowing more leg room for passengers in the front seat than other car seats allow. Children also seem to have ample leg room when rear facing which is another plus for the seat. The reviewer’s child was even happy in the car seat as a result of being high enough to see out the window. The only negatives the reviewer found were the placing of the loosening lever and tightening knob on the unit which are both hard to get to when the seat if facing the back of the vehicle.
The fact that the overall reviews for the Evenflo Triumph 65 LX Convertible Car Seat were positive with only minor issues being found with the seat means that we can recommend it to consumers seeking a safe, reliable and sturdy car seat that will easily transition from forward to rear facing saving them money as they ensure their child is safe.
