Great seat for small cars - PIA to install!
March 27, 2014
I LOVE this car seat! Used it as both rear and forward facing. For the rear-facing option, the wedge is an absolute must if anyone is going to ride in the front passenger seat. It's truly great for extended rear-facing since it allows for ample room to get baby in and out of the car.
Pros:
Slim design Allows to fit 3 seats in a row or with a passenger in between 2 (and I drive a small sedan!) Extended rear-facing because allows for ample space to get child in and out of the seat Foldable! and storage for all the belts (great for travel) Can be used as booster for a long long time
Cons:
difficult to install HEAVY! Must use wedge for rear-facing position, otherwise, no room for front passenger
Best Uses:
Small cars, 3 seats in a row, 2 seats with passenger in between

Hostess gift for baby shower
October 21, 2013
This car seat was purchased as a hostess gift for a baby shower I am giving for my niece. She and her husband have done extensive research, and determined this was the car seat they would select to protect their baby in the event of a car accident. It is also a convertible car seat, and will last until their daughter is 120 lbs. I had tried to purchase from two other stores, but they were out of stock. This item was a better price and was in-stock at Albee Baby's website. It arrived in a timely manner and we have pulled it out of the box to "inspect". The baby is not due until January.
Pros:
Convertible from infant until 120 lbs. High consumer reports ratings.
Best Uses:
Infant--to toddler convertible car seat.

Love this seat!
September 29, 2013
This is our 4th Diono RXT. This is a great seat and Diono has wonderful customer service. The rear facing limits are high enough to keep your child safe well into their 4th year! The install takes a bit of getting used to, but then it takes seconds to do. We love our Dionos!
Pros:
High rear facing limits Comfortable Easy install with Super Latch
Cons:
Heavy

Its ok
December 21, 2012
I like this car seat because we can take it on the airplane with us but its base isnt elevated at all so my son cant see out of the window in the car like he can in his other car seat which is frustrating for him and for me. I do like the fact that it is nice and sturdy and the buckles are very easy to use and it is a nice compact car seat its not huge which is also a nice thing seeing as most car seats take up half of the seat. But if I could do it again I would probably have gotten something different.

Great Carseat!
December 19, 2012
This seat is so easy to get my 21 month old daughter in and out of. She loves the freedom of her legs, too. The only thing "bad" about it is the long pieces of belt left hanging and the lever to loosen the straps isn't as easily accessible as I would like. We had the Britax Boulevard 70 before and are selling it because we would love to get another of the Diono for our other car.
Pros:
Easy to get in and out of, flat base fits well in my car, my daughter can see out of it well, comfortable
Cons:
long pieces of belt left hanging, the lever to loosen straps isn't easily accessible

Safe, narrow but heavy
December 18, 2012
Love this car seat - have the same one for our almost 3 year old. Like all the toddler seats it is tricky when rear-facing - fits in the middle, or when the seat in front is not pushed all the way back, and it is heavy making it not fun to travel with on an airplane, but the narrow profile is great and it is so safe. When we needed one for our second child it was an easy choice. The folding flat(ish) feature makes it easier to store.

Diono is a great seat I have 2 of them
December 16, 2012
I was debating between this one and Britax 70 Convertible and went with this one. It is definitely more narrow than most and very sturdy. I purchased one for my truck and loved the ease of installation and how safe it is. I have another in my car. It is expensive but worth the money in return for the safety it provides.
Pros:
It is narrow and easy to install.
Cons:
It is expensive but so worth the money.

Great seat!
August 13, 2012
As other reviewers have said - "You get what you pay for." This is a great, solid and safe seat. My 2 1/2 year old son has been in this seat in my husband's Ford F-150 since his first birthday. This is an expensive and heavy seat, but it's worth it's weight in gold - it is also the slimmest car seat out there, making it possible to fit 3 accross. We just ordered another (since there is a great sale going on) for when our 6 month old outgrows his infant car seat. It installs very quickly and easily & travels well, too. The only 'issue' I have is that it's a bit difficult to tighten the straps, but if you just slide your hand behind the seat to help them along, that does the trick.
Pros:
slim - ability to fit 3 across safe
Cons:
heavy difficult to tighten straps

Awesome seat! Does everything it should plus...
June 26, 2012
We purchased this seat after it was highly praised in a European Car Magazine article. It was touted as being able to spare one the all to often necessity and embarassment of having to become a Minivan owner/driver due to having three children. This seat is suppossed to be able to fit three comfortably across the back seat of a midsize sedan. I'd bet it can, because it allows us to fit two in the back seat of our VW New Beetle (first generation, not the now overgrown PT cruiser/VW Beetle looking hybrid it has grown to become). And if your saying all car seats can do that, not without having to adjust the front seats forward to avoid being kicked in the back by your little ones. Our first child is in the 97%tile for height for a two year old, and he can't kick us that way anymore. An additional bonus, we were used to having to reach behind the restraint to properly tighten the belts, not with this seat. This seat is so easy to tighten the adjustment straps, I'd bet a feeble 90 year old with a broken wrist could still properly tighten the belts. If you read and follow the directions supplied with the restraint, it will work as it is suppossed to and do it easily.
Pros:
Fits in small cars easily. Seems to be very comfortable. Has an upright and "reclined" seating position. Very easy to adjust. Looks like it is a factory colored upholstery in our VW, Audi, and Mercedes (we bought the Storm color to match our "gray" interiors).
Cons:
It is heavy for a child's carseat, which makes it not fun to transfer between cars. Initially I found the instructions to be set up in a non-intuitive fashion.

Great seat!
June 20, 2012
I bought this for my 10 month old, but ended up using it for my 3 1/2 yr old! I took a long trip alone with the 2 kids and wanted to have them both rear-facing. My daughter is too big to rear face in her Britax, but she can in the Radian. She was very comfortable and could keep her toys & books on her lap easily while rear-facing. She enjoyed being "backwards" like her little brother and even wanted to stay that way for a while after the trip. I've decided to keep her in the Radian and let the baby be in the Britax, even though it's a girly print. The Radian is forward-facing now and is very easy for my daughter to climb in and out of. It installed well with LATCH in my minivan and my sister's car. It isn't a snug (unmoving!) as my Britax seat, but it is within the safety range of less than 1 inch movement. I was unable to install it with a seat belt in my minivan, but I think that's more the van's fault. It takes up a lot of room when rear-facing, so it is not for a small car. That is why we got another seat for our daughter before we had a minivan. I wanted a Radian, but was sure it wouldn't fit in our Cavalier rear-facing. If your baby is over 1 yr, you can use Radian's angle adjuster, which helps a lot. This seat is wonderful. It's very sturdy (and heavy). I like the headwings for side impact protection and my daughter leans comfortably on them when she falls asleep. I have experienced some problems tightening the straps at times, as I've heard other Radian owners have. I'm not sure what causes it, but as I'm using it now, there is no trouble. I'd rate this seat 5 stars for safety and comfort, but I can only give it 4 stars because it's not as easy to install and adjust the straps as some other seats. Once you can get that done, though, this seat is wonderful!
Pros:
steel frame high weight limits easy to climb in and out of safety comfort
Cons:
can be difficult to install difficulty adjusting straps takes up too much space rear-facing

Nice ride
April 14, 2012
I have two kids in these seats one is 23lbs and 1 yr old and the other is 36lbs and 3 yrs old. The straps are hard to get adjusted tight, but since both seats are rear facing I reach around the back and help them along. The kids find them comfortable.
Pros:
Slim design, easy to install.
Cons:
The straps are hard to tighten after the child is in the seat.

Great Car Seat
February 16, 2012
Great price and quick shipment. Our 15 month old is happy in this carseat. We particularly like the Storm color because the fabric is soft and won't heat up as much as black in the summer. We have friends that have this carseat as well as other known brands and they say they prefer this one.
