Evenflo Maestro $49 shipped!!!

On BackOrder again, click "other sellers on Amazon" just below the price and it will be the 1st one on the list.

We have the Maestro and love it. It's lightweight, easy to move, and my 3 year-old can buckle himself!
It normally costs $65-$80. $49 is the lowest price I have EVER seen.

Evenflo Maestro Silver Booster Car Seat

Here is a copy of my Amazon review:

My almost 3yo son LOVES his new car-seat, and he HATES change so that's a BIG deal.

Lightweight, makes it easy to move around and helps with installation.
Harness to 50lbs, I really want him harnessed until he's at least five, but needed to pass his convertible seat on to his baby brother, this was the right price so I decided to give it a try
Looks Good. It doesn't look cheap. I really like the black/gray w/rusty red trim, it looks good in my car.
My son can buckle himself in!
I thought I wouldn't like the elastic style cup-holders, because let's face it more than a sippy cup ends up in a carseat cup-holder, but they have held my sons cars, snacks, and other things just fine.
His head does sometimes flop if he falls asleep in the car, it bothered him the first few times, because he was used to a convertible seat which was more reclined, but it doesn't bother him anymore.

Hook style latch system. I knew it had the cheaper latch connectors, but I didn't want to spend $90 more for a carseat with premium button latch connectors. It is very easy to install. When installing, there shouldn't be more than an inch of movement at the belt path, but be careful not to over-tighten the latch strap or it will be difficult to remove. When removing, I find it helpful to push down on the seat to release the tension on the strap while I loosen it, this makes it much easier. I am able to get a good install with the seat-belt so I often install that way because it's easier to remove the seat.
The seatbelt thread isn't adjustable so it won't last very long in booster mode.

It's a great seat for the price, and I really don't feel it would be worth it to spend more for a forward facing seat, unless you need a higher harnessed weight limit or a no-rethread harness.

It's also currently available from for the same price.

If you're looking for a higher end, longer lasting carseat that will work well for a booster for a long time you'll want to check out the Graco Argos for $124.99 on Amazon 3/22 only.
