About - Safety 1st Complete Air 65

The Safety 1st Complete Air 65 is part of the car seat test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, convertible car seat models like the Complete Air 65 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Crash protection:
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 LATCH:
Rear-facing installation using the LATCH system. A rating of how compatible, easy and secure a child car seat can be correctly installed in certain test vehicles. This rating is based on a rear-facing installation using the LATCH system.

Comment:
Straps failed. Won't slide through the lever below the crotch strap. Straps are tearing and after only 2 1/2 years of use, we have to get a new seat. Warranty is only one year so basically we will have to get a new seat. Difficult to loosen straps, straps always get turned in buckles. Toddler's head tilts forward when sleeping.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

My daughter was riding in her car seat when we were rearended on the highway. I have absolutley no doubt in my mind that the side air head supports saved her from having a major head injury.

Comment:
We bought this car seat almost 4 years ago. We used it first as a rear facing seat, and now my daughter is almost 4. Last week we were in a car wreck on the interstate where a dodge Durango hit us going 100 mph. My car flipped 6+ times. When we finally landed , my car was upside down, and I was stuck in the drivers seat, but most importantly my daughter was strapped in her car seat, unharmed. I fully believe that this safety first car seat helped to save her life. She walked away with only a fractured wrist in what would have been a fAtal crash had she not had such great protection
