Normally I am a huge fan of Graco I purchased my car seats through them after doing hundreds of hours of research on crash test and material ratings. I loved that they go above and beyond the other companies and USS standards on the car seat crash testing and certification standards. Let’s face it. The buds needs the side impact and roll over testing standards that Europe uses that Graco uses for many of the car seats. This fact and the Inright Latch is why I choose their products multiple times and paid more for it. Being disabled from a car crash I know more than most how important vehicle and child car seat safety is. After a fender bender forced us to replace my child's car seat due to our state and insurance regulations, I ordered the same car seat (this year's model) which is from the Graco Premier line at a cost of well over 400 dollars.

Finally get the car seat and the InRight Latch (needed due to personal medical and other reasons we chose. The model). is missing. It had incorrect parts for securing it in the vehicle so it sits unusable. I spend my last dime and cannot afford to purchase another Car Seat for my Child while I wait for a response. While I wait for the process from Graco for a new one, replacement parts, or who knows what if anything they will do. Even if I buy another model cheaper I don’t have the money to do so hell I borrowed money to pay for the Graco one. Even if they do make it right eventually I Have no way to get my child to his appointments, schooling testing, and activities, sports etc. This could cause major problems that cannot be resolved. Despite all of the external factors affected by this, when you spend over $400 to buy a Graco (or any) top of the line product it shouldn't come with missing or incorrect parts.

I can't even order it as a replacement part from the website I've checked. I cannot exchange it in a store for one that came from the manufacturer with correct parts it isn’t in stores. I have no way to legally transport my child for who knows how long now. I went from telling everyone how great Graco was and to get their products to now feeling cheated and had our lives affected negatively more than just a incorrect car seat parts Unacceptable. At a minimum these parts should be available. In stores or online to be purchased and then one could see if Graco would reimburse the cost to us. Not everyone can wait days to weeks to be able to use their child's car seat. Not everyone can just go buy another one regardless of the company while they wait for Graco to make it right.

I’m beyond inconvenienced. Maybe this is on Manufacturer maybe it’s both. Graco needs to improve shipping and related product control and needs a better way for customers to get missing or damaged parts esp when they are missing due to the companies fault not user error or damage. I hope graco not only makes this right but uses this to improve issues with missing parts. How they handle this will determine a lot.

My mother purchased this product for my baby shower. It took less than a week to receive. We tried to put together but some of the parts were stripped. My other half contacted the Storckcraft co. Multiple time we just received the parts October 11,2022. The issue I have is I can go in labor any day now and it has to be put together assuming all these parts are ok. So I will have to buy something else for him to sleep in. The crib was expensive. It should not have taken so long to receive the replacement parts. When I tried to put a review on their page they said it couldn't be published. They have to do better.

    I HATE Graco products because you cannot clean them. I should be able to easily detach the fabric to wash it simply because babies do not always stay clean. I would never purchase their products again. Then on top of that, customer service leaves you on hold for a million years for them not to know what to say or how to help.

    I made an on-line purchase from GRACO on June 21. My order went from shipping via FedEx to UPS to USPS. It is now July 7 and the order has not been delivered. They are using Covid-19 as an excuse for this unreasonable shipping time. Graco asked for my review even though I have not received the purchase. They would not publish it as it did not meet the website guidelines. AKA they would not publish a poor review of their shipping. I have no idea if the product itself is good or not. I have requested a full refund but have received no response.

    I was gifted the Graco Pack 'n Play Cc Elite Soothe Myles_9q211myl November 2019. I have only used it a handful of times and while the pack n play is great the cradle piece did not even last a few months. One side of the plastic/metal handle that locks in the shaded part snapped right off and MY SON COULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY HURT if I did not react as fast as I did. One day I went to use it for the 2nd time that day, placed my son inside and was about to lift it up with one hand, but something told me to use 2 hands. Good thing I did, because when I lifted the cradle up to carry to the next room, the side handle that locks in the shaded umbrella broke off completely. This plastic/metal handle snapped right off and MY SON COULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY HURT if I did not react as fast as I did.

    When I called customer service on 5/27 to report this they said they would send me a brand new pack n play free of charge and I would just mail back the broken cradle. Called today on June 18th to ask about my order, found out it had been CANCELLED AND NO ONE CALLED ME TO INFORM THAT MY ORDER WAS CANCELLED. So if I did not call myself I would have been waiting for a new pack n play that NEVER would have arrived???? Why was I never called about the cancellation of my order? As a new customer, you just lost me as a customer and I will be telling friends and family to not order Graco pack n play for their children.

    I recently spent quite a bit of time researching car seats to move my 11 month old into. She currently has the Graco snug ride and I LOVE it. I have always been one to only purchase Graco items. I am done. I ordered the Graco Sequence 65 off of the gracobaby website because everywhere else was out of stock on the color I wanted. It showed it processed through and I received a confirmation email. I had been waiting over a week for my car seat and nothing. I finally called Graco and was told it was either “stuck in a portal” or had been knocked out on suspicions of fraud since the billing address was different than mailing. I was told I’d know something by the end of that day. Specially, that if it was stuck in a portal they would send it on through and send me a tracking number...but if it had been kicked out due to suspicions of fraud I would have one sent to me free of charge.

    Well lo and behold I wasn’t told anything that day as I was promised. So the next day I call back. The lady I talk to then tells me she can place another order for me because it had in fact been kicked out - yet I received no notification of this...just was waiting on my child’s car seat that I desperately need. I told her I wanted someone to review the phone call because I was told I’d be sent one free of charge.

    A supervisor reviewed the call and said they “can see where you would have thought that but actually we meant if it got lost in shipping we would send one free of charge”. Which is NOT what the customer service representative told me. So instead I got a rebate. Something I have to fill out and send in after I make a new purchase. Which means taking MORE time out of my day because of their mess up! I am highly frustrated and will not be buying a Graco product again. I would have thought ordering from the company itself would have been much better, but boy was I wrong!

    I purchased a Graco Snuglock Snugride 35Lx safety surround in Jack. Well my 6 month old baby needed a helmet and this car seat does not have removable head protection. My son only weights 15lbs. So we easily could have used the infant carrier for a long time. Well I contacted Graco asking them why they would make a product not fit for every baby, I would have purchased the car seat if I had known better beforehand that the pads did not come out. The car seat cost $200.

    Well they emailed me back TWO weeks later. Saying I should look into a car seat for babies with special needs. My son isn’t special needs. He just needs a medical device to help his head shape. I was highly offended at that remark. Then I was offered $40 off $100 or $60 off anything over $100. But I had to mail in the tags from the old seat (which I sold because it took two weeks for anyone from graco to answer and I can’t drive him around without a car seat) a receipt, the upc etc. Ok it took you two weeks and I’m going to hold onto all of that? Basically they said I was SOL. I’m done doing business with Graco.

    Impossible website experience and phone customer service. I ordered a Graco FastAction Jogger LX Travel System for my niece. All went well on the website until payment. I live in Florida and she is in California. The website repeatedly told me that there was a problem with my card. I checked with the credit card company and we could see the item being entered and then cancelled. It was not a problem with the credit card. I then called Customer Service as directed and after ONE HOUR wait on hold, I was advised that this website could not ship an item to one address and bill the payment to another. I then emailed customer service to complain about this situation. In the interim I ordered the item from another seller and was able to ship to one address and bill to my address.

    Customer service representative Candi responded to my complaint and she explained that she could provide the requested service internally but not through their website. Since I had already ordered the item she offered me a rebate of $40 if the next item was $100 or less and $60 if over that amount. My niece had another Graco item the LiteRider LX on her registry so I ordered that - please note I had to have Candi process the order because I could not do it on the website because it cannot ship to one address and bill to another.

    She processed it for me and sent me the information for the rebate and also provided me with a case number so that they could verify the notes and also make clear that I did not need all the information normally required for a rebate such as the UPC label which I would not have had. The rebate was processed within a reasonable time and I received the check. All of this could be avoided if their website functioned like most other companies. Graco is owned by Newell Brands as best I can determine. I am hoping the items function as intended once the baby gets to use them.

    After receiving no answer to my calls and then waiting at least twenty minutes on hold, I eventually had to email the company in order to receive assistance. I purchased "two" car seats, which went on sale before the return period policy. I requested the difference in price to be credited back to my account, which was denied...."3" times. Instead, I was told I could return the unused items for a credit. I would then have to reorder to get the sale price. What sense does this make, especially for an expectant mother of twins!!! Well, the twins arrived and car seats needed. Rest assured, this will be my last purchase from Graco and last purchase of Graco products.

    The website for the same product had two different prices as I browsed 30 mins apart. The first time was about $15 more expensive however I already placed the order. I was trying to call and figured out why, maybe they should match up the price. No one picked up so I had to order another one with cheaper price and hoping to cancel the first order the next day morning.

    The next day, I called at least 10 times from 9 AM to 2 pm on a weekday and the phone system kept saying they were having a department meeting and hang up on me. The automatic emails indicated both of the orders were still not processed so I then sent an email requesting to cancel the first order. Of course, no response. Yet, guess what, 20 mins later after my email to cancel order, they notified me that order was shipped! Well, what else can I do? I guess had to pay shipping to return it! Everyone should avoid this brand! I can't believe this is a US owned company with the worst customer service and website.
