Colour: Monaco Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
On first delivery this is a very well made item. It needs minimal assembling. It has a cup/bottle holder and a little storage. The chair expands upwards easily by using a hand lever on the back. The head restraints are also adjustable.

Why only 2*? To use the recline feature, the chair base must fully be in contact with the seat. This means it cannot be used with smaller temporary seats, such as those in the rear row of a Zafira. Secondly, if the seat is fitted well (e.g., with little or no movement) then the seat cannot physically recline without being removed from the car first. Basically the mechanism for reclining is not the back moving, but the front leading edge moving up and down (only a few CM). It's the same as putting a small book under the front of the seat. A very poor design on what is otherwise a very nice chair.

Colour: Monaco Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We have used this now with our one year old and five year old. It is easy to adapt between the two sizes. It feels well padded and sturdy.

My problem with it, is the size. It is very substantial which in our teeny tiny Peugeot 207 means that the chair overhangs the seatbelt button and it is really difficult to click it in without losing skin from your knuckles! Think carefully if you are in the small car club.

Colour: Monaco Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I haven't had to use a child car seat for nearly 20 years, but having recently volunteered to look after my nieces six month old several afternoons a week, the Graco was a welcome addition. And like everything else over the last 20 years, boy. have child seats progressed.....

The first thing that struck me when assembling the Graco Natilus Elite was how sturdy it both looked and felt - an immediate assurance of good protection.

Installing using the cars seat belt isn't so much difficult, but a little bit fiddly, but once you've had a few practices, it'll become very easy.Once affixed using the seat belt, the seat feels extremely sturdy. There are plenty of padded areas, the seat seems extremely snug once the child is strapped in. The recliner isn't a feature I'll use as due to the minimal amount of reclining the seat actually does, it doesn't warrant the effort. The drinks holder is a great idea as I'm sure once old enough the toddler will enjoy having their own personal cup/bottle holder and make good use of it.

I've only been using this seat for a little over a month, so apologies if this review isn't as comprehensive as it should be..... But my summary is the seat is very sturdy, appears to be very comfortable, easy to use and does what it should - offer a good level of protection.

It is as i had read in other reviews. The recline position is a bit rubbish, so if you go on regular long journeys then it probably wouldn't be suitable. My son doesn't tend to full asleep in the car and we go on quite short journeys.
Other then the recline my son seems to like his car seat.

Colour: Monaco Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always purchased seats that are stage specific in order to avoid any compromise on safety, and so far all my purchases have been Britax. However I really like the Graco Nautilus Elite, and more importantly, my children like it too. If you are considering a seat that can cope with group 1, 2 and 3 this is an excellent option.

The seat is well made, easy to adjust, feels secure and safe, and the drinks holder and cubby holes in the arms are very useful and really appreciated by the kids. I've tested it with both my eighteen month old (group 1 configuration) and four year old (group 2 configuration), and both children seemed comfortable and happy, and securing them into the seat was easy and straightforward.

Having a multi-stage seat is useful, not just for the extra years you'll get out of the seat, but also for the flexibility it offers if your family has multiple kids and cars. That said, the flexibility in stage adaptation results in compromises that mean this seat will not match the best in class at each stage. There is no ISO fix to keep the seat securely attached when empty (handy if you forget use the seat belt to secure the empty seat), and no padded seat belt chest strap, both of which are useful features on the group 2/3 Britax KIDFIX XP SICT. Likewise there is no top tether for extra impact stability, as available on the group 1 Britax Duo Plus.

My only other reason for not stretching to the full five stars was due to the manual, which is okay but hard to follow in places. For example, converting the seat from group 1 to 2 is quite simple and straightforward once you master it, but I have to say that the manual is not as clear as I would have liked, and contains a couple of errors and rather ambiguous diagrams. Thus a bit of trial and error is needed. It's worth watching the the YouTube video "Changing the Graco Nautilus Elite from stage 1 to stage 2" to get a quick overview before you attempt it.

PROS
Comfy, Sturdy, Sits well in a car, Easy to install, Easy in and out for your child. Over all Fantastic, Best Buy

CONS
Supposed to recline, what's the point, might as well take this feature off the description. The clipping mech not the easiest, Takes Practice!

OVERALL
The seat is defiantly the best in its class for the money. I would hazard to say that it is the bast over all the possible car seats on the market. However as I have not tested them all I cant really make that comparison, but in my opinion it was a smart buy. there is extra padding that makes you wish that you had one to sit in, lots of pockets and a drinks cup holder (not that my 10 month old know s what to do with these yet). The seat sits well in the car with a hard base, making it very sturdy, there is a retaining clip to keep the seatbelt taught so that the seat does not move, and the seat is easy to install and remove from the car. Of course the head rest adjusts bonus perk but not required, may be good for children with weaker spines (speculation only?). Also, the head rest moves up and down depending on the size and age of the child. The belt harness inside the seat is of good quality and I can see that from a safety stand point this is the best that is out there - (think rally car seat).

As I Said there are a couple of drawbacks: Firstly the seat is advertised as reclinable, they may as well take this feature off the description, the seat moves literally one inch in either direction making no difference what so ever, however this is off set with the comfort and padding in the seat making it not needed anyway.
