The Graco Nautilus Plus 3-in-1 Abram is an older car seat that was first offered 3 years ago.

Please note that the Graco Nautilus 65 LX 3-in-1 ($169 @ Amazon) is newer and has the following improvements:

  1. Simply Safe Harness System adjusts the height of your harness and headrests, in one motion, to ensure that your child is always properly secured. Easy adjust, no rethread harness.

  2. Fuss Free Harness Storage, holding the buckle out of the way for easy in and out.

  3. Backless booster has a higher weight limit (40-120 lb.)

  4. New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) - peak crash force approximately 2x Car Seat Standard.

  5. Expiration Date: 10 years after manufacture date.

And finally, according to Woot’s “Specs”, they have a mixed inventory of 2013, 2014, and 2015. You may be purchasing a car seat that’s well over 2 years old and with only a 7 year warranty, the Graco Nautilus PLUS 3-in-1 will effectively provide only 5 years of use.

good deal?

This is a great deal.

Please keep in mind, this is a forward facing only seat. A child under the age of 2 should be in a rearfacing seat until they reach the maximums of their convertible carseat. Pay attention to the weight minimums of this seat before placing a child over the age of 2 in it. This is a harnessed booster seat. Make sure to get your seat install checked by a certified CPST. Not every fireman or police officer is a CPST. You can find the CPSTs near you at

70% off carseats are installed or used incorrectly. Get yours checked.

Great deal – you should be putting a child older than at least two in this seat in the first place. So even a 2013 gets a two year old to seven. We purchased this for a five year old.

As for the newer Graco with the 120 backless booster limit, that is considered to be a marketing ploy among most car seat professionals. Almost no child would be 120 lbs and yet still require a booster by height, age and maturity. It gives the illusion of extended use that would never happen anyway.

Isn’t this model in recall list due to harness buckle malfunction?
Why are they selling it?

[MOD: These have the new buckles.]

They can’t sell recalled seats. What happened during the recall is all the seats with that buckle, that hadn’t been sold, had the buckles changed out.

I no see it anywhere in the product page what was done with the buckle.

Is this a good deal

No 7 year old is ready to be in a vehicle without a booster. Buying a seat from 2013 for a 2-year-old basically means you are agreeing to limit the seat’s use to just the harness, as it will expire around the same time the child is ready for a booster.

It is literally illegal to sell a recalled product.

Question?! I’m having a baby next year. He won’t be able to use till 2017 after his newborn carseat…is there anyway I can get one manufactured in 2015 so it’ll last longer since he won’t use till later?

Is there a way to get a newer manufactured model? Like the 2015?

These types of seats usually run $150-$300. There’s some very basic bottom end ones that are $100ish new. Most Graco seats runs at the $200 end. These might be a the previous version but I can buy 2 of these for the cost of 1 on the newer ones and have one for each car. As far as the expiration date goes my 18 month old should be in one of those $20 booster seat things by 2020 when the earliest of these expires. Personally by that time I wouldn’t pay much attention to the expiration date on a backless booster seat anyway.

First kid? I’d wait. You got 2-2.5 years to go, there will be something newer and better by then, plus plenty more sales. Maybe grandparents will buy one of the new all in 1 seats.

This item rattles. I drive a lot, and had to get another seat. It functioned well, but my god the rattles. Don’t do it!
