View Full Version : Graco Platinum Cargo vs. Ultra Cargo

07-02-2004, 09:43 PM
I have a 3 year old daughter and a 6 month old son. My son has basically grown out of his infant car seat and my daughter is still in the Britax Roundabout. I'm looking to get her a convertible booster seat and give him the Britax. I'm trying to choose between the Graco Platinum Cargo and the Ultra Cargo. They seem to be the same except the Platinum Cargo has more padding which I certainly like. My daughter is a car sleeper. However, I don't love the faux-leather on the sides. I was wondering if anyone has experience with either or both.

There are a couple of different models, and I know among the choices at Target, the Ultra was far more padded in the bum than the Platinum. That's been awhile now, though. I think Walmart has a Platinum that doesn't have any leatherette (or maybe it's an Ultra? mislabled?) and the Ultra at Sears is probably the most bare bones of them all.
Wow, that is not helpful at ALL, is it? LOL!
Ok, since I'm no help, and this board can be a wee bit slow sometimes, try asking the same question here http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-ppcarseats/ I bet someone will be up on their Cargo padding over there.

Hope that helps at least a little!
