Parents will dig the idea that for less than USD100, you can get a “safe” convertible car seat with the Evenflo Tribute LX Car Seat. That’s a great deal considering that the majority of car seats in the market will cost you three to five times higher. For the price tag, let’s see what this seat has to offer and decide if it’s worth the risk to invest in this popular car seat.

You won’t find any issues with installing the Evenflo Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat. You can choose between the LATCH system or use your car’s seat belt, making it a simple and convenient process. However, you may find that you’ll need to use a rolled up towel for support before you get this installed, especially if you notice that the car seat is not attached to the right incline.

Is It Safe To Use?


 

The manufacturer made sure that security is the primary feature of this convertible car seat. Tribute LX is said to be “designed and tested for structural integrity at energy levels approximately twice the Federal crash test standard.”

These bold safety claims seem to be backed up by user reviews*, as some parents have reported that this product has saved their child from injury during a major road accident.

There are two sides to the story, though. There’s a grandparent who gave it just 1-star for having his grandson nearly killed on it 🙁

Many responded to this claim, I, too, felt so sorry for the baby. 🙁 But investigating further looks like the reviewer is faking it.

It’s a good thing that you can check the integrity of Amazon Reviewers. If not, it will be harder to trace if the review is reliable or not.

The Seat


 

Is The Material Breathable? Yes
Seat Weight: 9.1 pounds
Machine Washable Cover? Yes
Roomy? Yes
No-Rethread Harness? No
Comes With An Infant Body Support? No
Easy To Remove Cover? Yes
Expiration 6 years
Comes With A Cup Holder? Yes
Shoulder Harness Has Pads? No
Leg Straps Has Pads? No

The convertible car seat is made of a breathable fabric, 100% polyester to be exact. Although the car seat is padded with built-in body cushions for overall comfort, it looks like it is not padded enough as some parents complain that it is not good for long drives and you have to get an extra insert for added comfort.

An easily removable head pillow is provided for extra comfort and support. 

For a better fit, and longer use, the Evenflo Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat has four shoulder harness positions meant to accommodate growing children.

Note that you need to manually adjust the straps every time you are in need of some room.

For example, using it on a younger child, you will have to use the lower slots. The rate of your child’s growth will decide how you respond to this feature. It can be annoying to manually re-thread every time your child outgrows one position. However, that doesn’t happen every day, does it?

It is good to know that the Tribute LX’s convertible car seat pad is easily removable and safe for washing machines.

It would be better if the leg straps come with some padding too so that it won’t rub against children’s thighs.

Conclusion


 

The Evenflo Tribute LX Car Seat is considered as one of the best options for those with tight budgets. This convertible car seat is not just affordable, but it claims it also comes with highly secure safety features. Other extra accessories such as a pillow and a cup holder add to the value for a small amount of money.

The Evenflo Tribute LX Car Seat is cheap, lightweight and safe to use. But because there is not enough seat padding, it is only good as a temporary car seat, not because it’s not safe but because of comfort issues.

On your next air trip when you need to lug a seat around with you, you can bring it with you to the airport as it is relatively lighter than other convertible car seats. You don’t have to buy an extra convertible car seat that is more expensive as this alone can do the job.

The Tribute LX is an excellent choice for parents who are looking for an affordable and safe car seat for their growing baby. Many parents have given it a try because of its small price tag and have loved it ever since.

Aside from its safety claims, other parents think that the Tribute LX Car Seat has everything you’ll ever need in a TEMPORARY baby car seat, making this a great bargain.

I highly suggest that you check out the reviews of the parents who got this seat to help you further.

  1. Thank you for the review. I’m looking for a seat for Grandma’s car and this sounds perfect. Though the 40lb weight limit means we will have to get another one for her in the future.

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Yes, you’ll have to be looking for another affordable “next step” seat by then. But some parents say it’s ok since if you tally up the total amount spent for the seats separately, it’s most of the time almost the same as getting an “All-In-One seat, if not, much lesser.

      Regards,

  2. This seems like a good “quick” car seat. For example, if you have 2 cars and a majority of the time they ride in mom’s car but every once in a while you need to switch over to use dad’s car. It’s much handier to have a 2nd car seat rather than pulling out and rearranging everything. Or maybe you’re going on vacation by plane and need a car seat at your destination. Instead of taking your nice one, you would take this. Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi Jen,

      I agree on that. It’s very troublesome to keep on installing and uninstalling a car seat. A backup car seat is indeed a good use of this since it is affordable and safe at the same time.

      Regards,

      Pitin

  3. That’s a very thorough and comprehensive review on the Evenflo Tribute LX baby convertible car seat and I think that you have fairly outlined the pros and cons for this baby seat.

    I think that the info you provide here is very good as it gives parents who read this review an opportunity to make a wise decision in buying this baby seat.

  4. I’m actually in the market for a good car seat right now for my son who can’t stand his infant car seat. He wants to be sitting up so that he can look around and see what’s going on but because they’re so darn expensive I haven’t been able to get a new one for him 🙁 This is actually a very good price for a car seat if it works as good as you’ve said.

    1. Hi Jessica,

      Something to take note of: It’s only good for kids until 40 pounds and 40 inches (forward-facing). That means you will have to get another one (booster) once your kid is beyond the limit.

      Cheers,
      Pitin

  5. People’s reviews are always helpful even though it’s just one sided. I think reviews for the safety side of this product have different causes. Example, people are rushing to install the product and they do not follow the step by step procedure, therefore, the bad review will be pointed to the manufacturer! But this product is good , I agree with that!

    1. Hi there Milicka,

      Thanks for dropping by my site. I appreciate your thoughts and I agree with what you said. Just like when you happen to deal with a bad customer service representative and concluded in general that the whole lot of the people in customer servicing sucks, LOL.

      Cheers,
      Pitin
