On April 4, 2014 Evenflo issued a recall of 1.3 million car seat buckles!

Evenflo Car Seat Buckle Recall Model Information

This recall involves the following car seat models manufactured between 2011 and 2014: CHASE, MAESTRO, MAESTRO PERFORMANCE, MOMENTUM 65, SECURE KID, SNUGLI ALL-IN-ONE, SNUGLI BOOSTER, SURERIDE DLX, SYMPHONY, TITAN 65

The affected seats have model number prefixes of 306, 308, 310, 329, 345, 346, 371 or 385.

Safety Information

The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In the convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats, the buckle may become stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button.  This can be extremely hazardous in an emergency situation.

Further Instructions

Evenflo will notify registered owners in April 2014. The company will start providing replacement buckles along with installation instructions in April 2014.

  1. the pic of the carseat on this recall, what is it called? i don't have the carseat with me, it's in the van which is at my in-laws
    • Jessica, the car seat pictured is the Evenflo Maestro. It is the most recent model and is included in the recall. If you sent in the registration card that came with the seat, Evenflo should contact you about a replacement buckle soon (sometime in April, I think).
  2. Car seat is really important to keep my kids be in their right position. I bought this brand once and am still using it now. It works pretty well. Thanks, Amy
