The Graco My Ride 65 is part of the car seat
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, convertible car seat
models like the My Ride 65 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Evaluation of a seat’s potential for providing an additional margin of safety in simulated 35mph frontal crashes when compared to the performance of similar models. Evaluation is based on injury criteria measured on standardized child-size dummies, head contact with the back of a simulated front seat, and the car seat’s ability to remain intact during the course of testing.
Ease of use:
Our judgment of how easy each seat is to use including the clarity of labels and instructions, adjustments of clips and buckles, the transition of the seat from rear facing to forward facing and installation features such as LATCH connections and top tethers.
Rear-facing installation using the LATCH system.
