From The Manufacturer

The Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Convertible Car Seat holds a rear-facing infant from 5 – 40 lbs. (height: 19 – 40 inches) and a forward-facing toddler from 22 – 65 lbs. (height: 28 – 54 inches). The Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Convertible Car Seat meets or exceeds all applicable Federal Safety Standards, as well as Evenflo’s Side Impact Test Standard for Structural Integrity, which uses energy levels approximately 2 times the Federal Crash Test Standard for multiple-shoulder harness positions. The 6 shoulder strap positions and 2 crotch buckle positions on the Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Convertible Car Seat allow it to accommodate growing children longer, and the easy to access upfront harness adjustment and buckle release makes it convenient for simple harness adjusting. The energy absorbing foam liner used in the Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Car Seat provides added safety at the same time providing extreme comfort for your infant or toddler. The soft, plush head and body pillows will keep your infant or toddler comfortable during long car trips. The easily removed machine washable seat pad allows for simple cleaning, and the plastic and metal parts can be wiped clean with mild soap and water. The lightweight and compact size of the Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Convertible Car Seat makes it great for vehicle fit, movement between multiple cars, or just carrying through airports and air travel. These features coupled with the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system, make it easier to correctly install. The Evenflo Sure Ride DLX Convertible Car Seat for infants and toddlers is designed, engineered, tested, molded and assembled in the United States. For almost a century, Evenflo has been a leader in safety, innovation and education. The Evenflo Sure Ride DLX adheres to that mission in providing a convertible car seat that combines safety, comfort and ease for the ultimate value in child restraints.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

This seat offers some of the tallest harness slots of any convertible seat as well as a good fit for many newborns, making it is one of the only convertibles that will expire before kids outgrow it.
While most convertibles under $100 have a 40-lb weight limit, the SureRide goes up to 65 lbs forward-facing and 40 lbs rear-facing. It also offers more padding and comfort features than most seats in its class – you even get a fold-down cup holder, huzzah! This is a good pick if you’re installing your seat in the middle position because there are no “additional” side-impact safety features.
Crash protection. - Forward-facing fit to vehicle. - Lightweight. - Reasonable price.
The SureRide is designed to fit children from 5-65 lbs. and the fit on the lower end is fantastic. Because it has such a large size range of kid to fit, the long harness has 2 sets of loops on the ends so it can be shortened for newborns and smaller babies. The SureRide is FAA-approved and because it’s so light, it’ll be easy to get through the airport.
Buckle pockets allow you to tuck the buckle tongues away for safe and easy seating and unseating. And upfront harness adjuster, 6-position shoulder strap and removable body pillow accommodate your growing child well. A detachable cup holder and washable pillows and seat pads make cleanup a breeze.
The SureRide DLX meets or exceeds all safety standards and has two times the federal standard for side impact protection. This Evenflo seat features energy absorbing padding to not only provide comfort for your little one, but also absorbs forces in the event of an accident.

What reviewers didn't like

One can see in the photo that the Titan 65’s tether anchor strap was not long enough to reach the anchor.
The only downside is that there are no seat belt lock-offs (meaning, you have to lock the seat belt manually if you’re not using LATCH).
Labeling can be difficult to see. - A belt locking clip was needed for some installations.
Large gap between 3rd and 4th harness slots can be awkward when your child is in between them and tall seat that must be put at full recline when rear-facing.
Some parents felt the seat was too bulky for their smaller vehicles. Others had trouble getting it tight enough in either the LATCH or seat belt attachments. A few parents thought it felt very flimsy with thin plastic that could easily break. Grandparents with arthritic hands had a hard time with the buckles.
The SureRide isn’t the most convenient of car seats – it’s harder to install than most, it isn’t super comfortable, and it is bulky.
