Happy with this seat
June 2, 2015
We've had our Monterey for about 2 weeks now. Overall, we like the seat. My daughter struggles to buckle on her own, but she's getting there. I figured that could be an issue with any seat. She's super happy with the Bloom color.

safe, easy to use
September 23, 2013
This is a wonderful carseat. It uses the latch system, so your child is really stable in the back seat. I also ordered one by recaro, which is super easy to use, but not as stable as this one, b/c it doesn't latch in. I also like the cupholders. The only improvement I would make is adding some kind of mesh so that it's not so hot for your child. My daughter tells me it's comfortable.

Very nice
August 13, 2013
This booster is very nice. Built very well and fits both our Honda Pilot and BMW 535. Only keeping us from rating it a five star is the seat belt tends to get twisted often where it comes thru the side of headrest. At around $100, it was the best choice for us. Most importantly, the kids like sitting in it more than their previous Graco.
Pros:
Well built and comfortable
Cons:
Often need to untwist the seat belt where it comes thru the headrest
Best Uses:
Best use for growing kids.

Awesome carseats!
August 1, 2013
Seats arrived quick and brand new condition. No bumps, dents, scratches. Nice and cushiony race car boosters with rubber under base to protect car. Super easy to install with latch for quick use between cars and security when seats not in use. Nice surround padding for added protection of torso and head. Very customizable to fit growing child. Kids love the cool kid look of seats. Fits perfect in 2013 Ford Escape. 💜
Pros:
Fantastic safe carseats! Would purchase again in heartbeat.
Cons:
Minor - some fussing with threading seatbelt through head outlets
Best Uses:
Growing toddlers

Great Seat
July 10, 2013
This seat was super easy to install. Although I am bummed that my car doesn't have a latch system on the 3rd row, I do feel like this seat offers great safety features. For a larger booster it is also pretty compact. Compared to my Britax car seats anyway.

Best of both worlds
July 9, 2013
I bought the Diono Monterey because my 7 year old hates the way boosters slide around underneath her. This was the least expensive booster I could find that attached to the seat via the LATCH bars. I wasn't disappointed - it is very secure. It was a bit more than I wanted to pay for a booster, even at the sale price. But since she'll be in it for a couple more years (since she's so light) I figured it was worth the investment; and baby brother can use it after her (hence the blue). A lot of the price is the very adjustable back panel which makes the seat feel more like a full car seat than just a booster. The combined back and seat is a bit heavier than a typical booster/back combination and a bit cumbersome to carry around. However, the base detaches easily from the back if you need a more portable solution and you still have the LATCH straps. The back itself is just as big as a regular car seat. However, the shoulder strap guide is very adjustable and goes quite high. Which is another reason I chose this model; my daughter had already maxed out the height on her regular car seat. The "wings" adjust easily in and out to accommodate children of different widths. I also like the fact that it will recline if the seat is reclined which will be quite helpful for long car rides; although we haven't put that to the test yet. Also, the seat is deep to accommodate longer legs. Overall, my 7 year old loves her seat and has not complained once. The Diono Monterey is a great compromise between a booster and a full car seat and is perfect for children between five and nine years old.
Pros:
LATCH hooks secure the booster to the seat back is very adjustable for width and height seat and back can separate back can recline retractable cup holders on both sides deep seat for longer legs
Cons:
a bit pricier than other booster options back section adds weight and is cumbersome to carry
Best Uses:
The Diono Monterey is perfect for pre-tweens (5 to 9 year olds) that have moved out of a buckle-style car seat but still need something more secure and comfortable than a typical booster seat.

Love it.
July 2, 2013
Got this seat to replace a booster that looked uncomfortable. Use this for my 10 year old son and he seems to like it better than the last seat. He has plenty or room left to grow in it more. It is wide so in my 3 across it has to have the sides all the way it, but my son doesn't mind. I love that it matches my 3 radians in the car as well. We will be getting a second one for my 8 year old soon and move him out of a Radian.

Great Seat
February 13, 2013
My daughter loves her new "big girl" seat, especially the color. I love that it still uses the latch clips so it doesn't slide all over. Great quality, love the cup holders and that it has side impact protection as well.

Design flaw?
February 13, 2013
My son picked out this booster because he thought it looked neat. I agreed, and liked that worked with the LATCH system, and was also adjustable. He was happy with the comfort of the seat, but unfortunately, we were not able to use it in my Hyundai Santa Fe and had to put it in my husband's Honda Accord instead. If your seat belts in the back seat come out of the side of the car (as opposed to the back of the seat), do not bother purchasing this booster. It will NOT work for you. The belt guide keeps the seatbelt from retracting if the belt comes in from the side. If the belt is in the seat and comes straight out, you have a shot at it working. Even in the Accord, functionality isn't what I'd call perfect, but it does work much better than in my Santa Fe...not a major accomplishment since it didn't work in my car AT ALL. I think the seat is decent quality, but they need to review the design of the belt guide.
Pros:
Appearance/Color adjusts to accomodate growing child
Cons:
belt guide is poorly designed couldn't use this booster in my car

DIONO MONTEREY BOOSTER SEAT
October 16, 2012
This is the best booster seat, your child can fall asleep and thier head won't fall over and the seat sits very well and with the harness on the back that hook into the seat it keeps the seat steady where it doesn't move around like other booster seats do.

Great product
February 26, 2012
This booster is very well made and most importantly SAFE. I love that it is a booster but still has side protection. My recently turned four year old fits nicely in it - the chair will also provide comfort for sleeping on longer trips with his head resting against the sides. Like the cup holders on either side and that it will fit snugly against the back of the car seat in several positions. High quality - not like other car seats I have encountered that seem cheaply made. My son moved from Britax Marathon to this one. My only complaint is that the suede material that part of the seat is made from seems to attract dirt/lint - but can be removed to be cleaned. I love the seat - so happy with this purchase after looking hard for the perfect booster.
Pros:
Looks, safety, side protection, head protection, quality, arm rests, cup holders, seat belt positioners, LATCH
Cons:
Suede material attracts dirt
