Excerpt: Using the LATCH system to convert Graco’s My Ride 65 car seat from rear- to forward-facing is a breeze
Pros: Easy to install with LATCH, Easy to secure child (We used our 8-lb. GHRI test dummy), Has two separate tether systems for forward-facing and rear-facing LATCH system, so no re-routing is required, Fairly easy to remove car seat cover, Car seat cover is machine washable, Easy to tighten and loosen harness, Has two built-in cup holders
Cons: No seat angle adjustment, Harness has to be rethreaded to adjust height
Excerpt: Heather has already done a full review of the Graco My Ride 65 convertible car seat. It was a great overview and also very thorough, so I’m not going to repeat it with another full review. Instead, I’m just going to add a few comments along with some photos and video. Without a doubt, the 40 pound rear-facing weight limit is a very welcome increase. Rear-facing provides the most crash protection in the most common and severe frontal and side impacts.
Maybe the Graco My Ride 65 Could Be *My* Ride? A Review.

Conclusion: Rear-facing installation of the My Ride 65 in my 2005 Sienna using both LATCH and later the vehicle seat belt was both a breeze and a pleasure. The recline angle was fantastic, even for a newborn; however, I know that in other vehicles this restraint may require a noodle or two to achieve a proper recline for a newborn.
