OMG!! I can’t begin to tell you how awesome the Platinum Symphony DLX All In One car seat from evenflo is! We call it baby’s new Cadillac! They broke the mold on this one! Evenflo has designed this awesome car seat’s securing latch system to be easily installed by anyone. I kid you not, even my mom, at the young tender age of 79, can transfer & install this bad boy in her car with ease in less than 10 minutes, that’s including the time it took to get it from my car to hers.
Yep, you guessed it, it’s also extremely light, so if need be, transferring from car to car is a breeze! Best yet it fits in just about any vehicle. I have a 20012 Nissan Versa hatchback and the Symphony fits like a glove with plenty of room for front seat adjusting, exceeding any expectation I had for proper installation and ease of use!
The folks at evenflo know that transporting your little bundles of joy is much more than precious, this is why evenflo is constantly working hard and putting their heads together making it a priority to develop new, innovative features that help increase, not only safety, but comfort parents & our children. We have been waiting for a car seat such as this for a log time. I couldn’t believe the quality and all the wonderful features the Symphony DXL All-In-one has.

I love the new Outlast performance fabric! Fabric absorbs hot and cold temperatures, releasing as needed. This is the same fabric used by NASA that balances body temperature for a safer, more peaceful ride. I live 45 minutes away from my daughter and I drive back & forth on a daily basis. It does gets pretty hot where we live, every drive in Novalee’s old car seat, made her little cheeks beet red, she would get over heated and be drenched with sweat. I noticed the first time my Novalee rode in her Platinum Symphony DXL All-In-One, their was no more redness & sweating!! Also to mention, she was so comfortable she fell asleep within the first 10 minutes of being in her new Cadillac, we love it!! Hey we mom’s know that a peaceful, less distracted ride is a safer, joyful ride!
The Sure LATCH Connectors are my favorite and what makes the Platinum Symphony DXL All-In-One the easiest to install. Simply push the LATCH until it clicks and secures to your vehicle’s anchors, then push down to hear and feel the seat auto tighten. It’s also recommended that you push down on the car seat it’s self, while holding both arm rests, for a more secure fit. Safety tip; once you have installed & latched, try moving the car seat from side to side. It should be secure with almost no movement. If you feel it wiggle or loose, just unlatch and start again.
The Platinum Symphony DXL All-In-One has e3 Side Impact Protection 3 layers of foam designed and tested to reduce side impact forces up to 50%. It is so padded, soft & comfortable for baby, I wish I could be a baby again so I could get in it and ride!!
As hot as it gets in my town, I can’t even begin to tell you many times I’ve yelped, “OUCH!” after grabbing an extremely hot buckle, or getting frustrated searching for them, worst of all when my little one complains that the belt is too hot, breaks my heart! Not with evenflo’s Platinum Symphony DXL All-In-One! The “Buckle Pockets” protect from hot buckle burns and eliminate digging under child for lost buckles, you just insert them into their little pockets, HURRAY problem solved!
One of my over all favorite feature is the ”Infinite Slide Harness”. This feature provides an easy, safe accurate fit for your child and eliminates the need for harness rethreading as your child grows. All you have to do is push a button in the middle of the car seat, it will release the harness, you pull the harness open to fit child, place & snap baby in, then pull the single harness strap until child is secured. I love it!! No more struggling to adjust each side at the shoulder then again at the legs. This Symphony DXL All-In-One was especially designed to grow with your child.
It is so versatile and easy to use, rear-facing for infants 5 – 40 lbs; forward-facing for toddlers 22 – 65 lbs. To use as a belt-positioning booster for children 40 – 110 lbs., remove harness and use vehicle’s shoulder/lap belt, this is marvelous!
Look at this happy baby!! Now do you see why we call it baby’s new Cadillac??
I just can’t express to you how awesome the Platinum Series Symphony DXL All-In-One is!
