Great seat if you need to fit three car seats in one row
June 8, 2014
I have a four year old and twin 1 year olds. I originally bought two rear facing only seats for my twins (had to do some research to find three that would all fit in my car). Now that I moved my twins to forward facing I had to purchase another two seats for them that would fit along with the booster I have for my four year old. These seats are narrow enough to easily fit three across either forward facing OR rear facing. I have one fairy wide booster seat + two Radians and while its a bit tight, it easily works. I've also moved all three to different cars and it fit all of them without issues. If I had three Radians it would be even be easier (since my booster is a few inches wider than these seats). My kids like the seats, seem comfortable to them, and are easy to buckle them in with. I didn't try rear facing with the kids in them, but I put them in the car just to see and space was ok that was too. I currently have 10 car seats including my two Radians, and these are one of the easiest ones to install of the bunch. If you are looking to fit three kids in a standard car (I have a Tucson and an Altima), I would recommend going with these. My only regret is that I didnt purchase these originally instead of buying separate infant carriers.
Pros:
fits three across in a standard size vehicle (Camry, Fusion, Altima, etc). Rear facing OR front facing. Easy to install Easy to buckle children in Seems comfortable
Cons:
nothing I've noticed

Best carseat EVER
August 13, 2015
We already have one Diono so it was only natural to buy our youngest a Diono. it fits perfectly in our seats and they don't take up a lot of room. my girls seem very comfortable in them. Got the purple color and it looks just as it does in the picture!
Pros:
pretty much everything
Cons:
if I had to give one it takes up more room rear facing then a regular infant seat.
Best Uses:
forward facing!

August 11, 2015
This is our fourth Diono seat. We are completely happy with it. These seats feel safer and more substantial than any other car seat out there. And major space savers - we had three across in a vw Passat and they fit perfectly.

I purchased 3 of these to fit in my 2015 Honda CRV. 2 forward facing and 1 rear facing. They fit perfectly and my grandkids love them. I chose them because of their high safety reviews and narrow seats! Great purchase and will last until the kids no longer need car seats. Kids are 4 months, 2 1/2 yrs and 4 yrs.
Pros:
High safety rating, able to use on airlines and comfortable. Easy to install.
Cons:
Slightly heavy but what good car seat isn't!
Best Uses:
Midsize vehicles and needing 3 car seats.

Awesome car seat
July 20, 2015
In my opinion this is the best car seat out there because of the durability and safety. The weight limits are about the highest you can get for rear facing (only being outdone by a newer model Diono) making them the longest rear facing car seat. They are great for fitting multiple seats across one row, just beware that since they are very tall, when placed in the rear position they take up A LOT of room. The straps, buckles, cushions and everything else are all easy to adjust. The fabric is high quality and it is easy to remove and clean. It also seems like my kids find it very comfortable! For the length of time you will use it and the safety ratings, I believe this is well worth the money.

Great quality, great product!
July 16, 2015
This is the second Diono Radian I have purchased in two years (for a second child). The first is holding up great to my older child's abuse, and two years later looks almost new. The fabric provides a highly breathable environment for children's sensitive skin and the color option ensures that, even in the heat of summer in Phoenix, Arizona, does not burn the kids. The fabric quickly cools, leaving the kids comfortable and protected. The restraint padding ensures their comfort, even during long road trips.

Great Seat Overall but a few Quirks
June 18, 2015
This seat fits great in my vehicle and seems to be very comfortable for my daughter. The two things that bother me though with seat is that the headrest is very hard to adjust; it is hard to find the right spot to adjust it and the harness does not tighten easily; it seems that the harness pads prevent the harness from tightening completely (I have to pull them down more to get it to tighten).

June 14, 2015
This car seat is worth the money. Fits my 4 year old great. Wish we would have known about it when she was born. Would have been the only seat we had to buy. I love that it doesn't have the annoying arm rest like the Britax we had. This seat is so streamline and I feel like my child is as secure as she can be in it. Will be carrying it on a plane trip to hawaii soon. Will get some use out of the backpack straps that came with it.
Pros:
Folds easily Carrying straps provided Pretty flower print for girls Not bulky

Great for extended rear facing& beyond but HEAVY!!!!
June 4, 2015
Pros: protection, comfort, ability to seat three across, fabric, and longevity. Our boys love the padded harness and complain much less and sleep better on long car rides. The low sides are handy for getting in and out of the seat. Cons: very very heavy. Tricky to learn how to install, esp rear facing. There's no way we would travel with two of these through an airport!!!
Best Uses:
Leave in car for extended rear facing, three across.

Quality car seat that allows for three kids in the back of a Hyundai Sonata. Two Diono radian RXTs and a Bumblebum booster in the middle between the two Dionos. I've only had Britax prior to this so reluctant, but very happy with the purchase.
Pros:
Quality, sturdy and strong. Kids love the head wings to rest their heads on. Narrow profile. Strong harness clip. Fits great in the back of a Sonata forward-facing experience only.
Cons:
Cup holder moves.

A solid choice for a good price!
May 15, 2015
I've spent a lot of time researching carseats and had initially purchased a competitor's convertible which only went to 65 lbs, which I also love but needed another seat for a new baby. I decided this one would be a better choice for my older daughter because it would extend the amount of time she could rear face as well as be used up to 120 pounds as a booster. I also really loved the Spring design. It is a solid design with a steel frame. There are very few seats on the market with steel construction, and this is one of the best and the main reason I purchased it. I was able to score this one at a great price, and I am happy with the purchase. It is relatively easy to install albeit quite heavy due to the steel frame. My daughter doesn't seem to mind it rear facing at almost 2. I really like that the sides are lower than our other seat so it is easier for her to get herself in and out without me lifting her. My only complaint is the harness takes a little while to get the hang of but once I learned that you can tighten the harness significantly by tightening it before buckle the lower strap to get some slack out of it, it is much easier to tighten it. Overall, I am really happy with this model especially at the price.
Pros:
Steel frame Cute design Easier access Extended rear facing for a tall child
Cons:
Heavy to move from one vehicle to the other
Best Uses:
Extended Rear Facing Extended Harnessing Convertible from birth til grade school

Safest Convertible on the market!
April 30, 2015
I have had 3 of the these seats, and after having a car accident recently, (thankfully, no kids in the car), I repurchased this seat as a replacement because I trust its proven safety and durability for my kids. It's heavy, but incredibly well made and narrow enough to have three across in a midsize to large SUV (a definite perk). You won't be disappointed.
Pros:
Safety rating, durability, narrower footprint for smaller vehicles.
Cons:
A touch heavy, but pros outweigh the cons
Best Uses:
Can be used from birth until they size out of a carseat/booster.

I got this for my daughter because her car seat was too bulky in conjunction with her brother's rear facing seat. It took 5 minutes to install and it fit perfectly. She was so excited to sit in it! She is on the skinny side so we can use the body support still. It's also super easy to buckle her in. Well worth the money!

Good carseat, as described
April 16, 2015
This carseat was our 1st choice after weighing the few comparable Britax & Diono models. Due to the need to have two carseats next to one another in our older Audi Wagon, the smaller side-to-side dimensions and the safety ratings made this the only choice for us. We have our 8-yo in a Diono R100 and he still uses the 5-pt restraint (he's thin and tall) and the 18-mo old is rear-facing in the middle next to him. She is much more comfortable in this seat than her Britax 'baby bucket' and seems to enjoy it. This seat definitely made us move our front seats forward a bit, but once she is forward-facing, we can move them back the small amount.
Pros:
Safety Space for child Longevity
Cons:
Tight fit for a smaller wagon

Love this car seat!!
April 9, 2015
I'm a mom of three, and I'm a bit of a car seat nut. My standards are super high. We've owned six Britax marathons that we loved, but when looking to replace them (as they had expired), I happened upon the Diono Radian RXT. After doing some research and checking out the reviews, we decided we should get one for our almost 3 yr old. We are SO happy that we did! Our son loves his "blue one car seat". He's super comfortable, and I love that it takes up less room in our van. The quality is great, and we are confident that he's super safe! As a former Britax believe, I have been converted. If I were going to have more kids, we'd buy even more. I'll definitely be recommending this seat to all of our friends!

Best seat, worth every penny!
March 26, 2015
I decided to get a seat for my baby that could be used from birth until booster seat. While the seat is spendy, it is worth it because this seat has safety ratings that exceed many other seats out there and you simply can't put a price on the safety of a child. Though the seat has yet to be used, I have it installed in my SUV in between two other seats just to see that it fits, and of course to have it ready when baby is born. I was very pleased at the ease of installation even though I was warned that getting the correct angle can be a bit difficult. We are not required with a LATCH restraint system, so I just used the middle seat's shoulder/lap belt and only had to redo it once. Very happy so far!!
Pros:
Goes from birth to booster (120 lbs). Rear facing installation is fairly simple, and an angle adjuster is fairly cheap if needed.
Cons:
Even though weight goes up to 120lbs, a child may outgrow the seat due to their height before they are ready to be out of a booster, so I may still need to purchase a booster, but not for a few years, so it's not too big of a deal.
Best Uses:
Narrow fit really does allow you to fit 3 seats across, even of different brands, in a mid size SUV. This is a huge help with only one child not in a seat/booster.

Best carseat I have ever owned
March 25, 2015
I love this car seat. It is so safe and so easy to use. It is slightly heavier than other car seats but I know it is made well and what is made with is going to protect my children. It is not hard to install and once it is in, it is not going anywhere. My kids love how comfortable the seat is and how easy it is for them to get in and out of it. They don't sit way up high off the seat like some other car seats are. My kids love being able to see out the window and be able to reach cup holders and things on the seat when they are in this seat.
Pros:
Safe Reliable Easy to install Convertible for all ages

I also purchased the angle adjuster when makes a huge difference in the amount of room it takes up! It's an awesome car seat!

This car seat is very compact. I've only used it for front facing, and it doesn't occupy too much space as my other car seat. The child also seats more upfront than the other car seat, which is more comfortable when the child is awake, but less so when he tries to sleep while sitting.

Very happy with this car seat, now own two!
December 17, 2014
We have had this one for two years now and have recently bought another exactly like it for our next little one. We've been very pleased with it's performance, style, comfort, and ease getting it in and out of the car. And it cleans easily, which is great! It is heavy, but that's due to it's steel construction which makes me confident in its durability and safety. It's so versatile, it's the only car seat you'll ever need. The only con is that the seat back is very straight up, so when my son falls asleep, his head often bobbles forward and doesn't stay back in the seat.
