The Graco Triride 3 in 1 Car Seat has been praised by many parents as being easy to install and reclines well even without using rolled towels.
However, some have complained that it did not work well with their car's LATCH system or that it slid around too much. It also seems to not come with the new LATCH system (it's a hook-type instead of the push-on type).
Despite this, the majority of parents who have installed the seat are satisfied with it and would recommend it to others.

Some parents have complained that the 5-point harness doesn't stay in place and that it keeps sliding down no matter how many times you adjust it. While this may not be a deal-breaker for some, it's definitely worth considering before making your purchase.
The Graco Triride 3 in 1 Car Seat is said to have 6 recline positions, but depending on your car's seat slope, your child's head can still end up being nowhere to rest and it will hang down completely when sleeping. This can be a safety issue for some parents.

The seat seems very well made with many parents saying the car seat is comfortable. It is plush with lots of padding. Because of the no-rethread harness, it is very easy to adjust the headrest up and down to loosen then tighten the harness straps.
However, it can be difficult to put the baby in the seat without setting the baby on the straps. Some parents have also complained that the pad for the seat slides around a lot, exposing the hard plastic and mechanics behind it which can hurt the child's back. Others also wish the seat was lighter to carry.
The Graco Triride is a good choice for parents who want a car seat that is strong, sturdy, and comfortable. It has been praised by many parents for its easy installation and reclining abilities.
However, some have complained about its large size, lack of LATCH system compatibility, and poor headrest design.
Despite these flaws, many reviews say that the car seat has held up well during use and was a good choice for new parents.
