best car seat
we were recently in a car accident and i was advised to purchase all new car seats. but we currently own this one for our 4 year old and she didnt move an inch. she was so secure and safe. i just purchased 2 of the new models because i will not put my children in anything else after seeing our 7 year old daughter thrown forward in her current booster seat. well worth the money!
Proseverything!
Consit is heavy but i would not say that is a con. it is just made extremely well.

Love it.
Bought this seat to begin transitioning my 12 week old son into... he's just 16 pounds but I want him to have a safe car seat that would be more comfortable than the seemingly cramped infant carrier/car seat I received as a gift at my shower. I really like this seat. And thankfully so does he! He fits well in it and has fallen asleep in it several times without a problem just as he would the infant seat. His head does fall forward slightly when he sleeps but I don't think it will cause him any strain... the harness padding is so thick that it keeps his head more upright than side-lying. I love the fact it's tethered to the car fame... literally this thing does not budge after being properly installed! (Which was super easy after watching Car Seat Lady's YouTube tutorial) I think the midnight color is fantastic, I love black and the seat is functional and appealing to the eye. I can't wait for him to grow with this seat, I'm proud of my purchase. Feel I made the right decision!

Great Purchase!!!
We like that thus car seat will keep our daughter safe and rear-facing longer than other seats. It seems very comfortable. Only concern to have is it you have a tall driver, this seat does have a pretty far back position for rear-facing or recommend the seat wedge to elevate it.
ProsGreat head support, easy 5 point harness
ConsRear-facing angle of seat can cause it to not fit in some card properly without the seat wedge sold separately to place under the car seat.

Slim Seat
We purchased three Dionos to fit three across in my husband's vehicle (cheaper than buying a new car!) The toddlers seem to be very comfortable in theirs, but we haven't used it for our infant yet. You can't beat the prices on Albeebaby!

CPST in love with a car seat
Love the slim design of the car seat. We have taken our Diono with us in several cars and rental vehicles. With the use of the angle adjuster (purchased separately) I am able to install in smaller vehicles (2009 Kia Spectra) with plenty of room for my large 5'4 frame and still allow more than 12" between myself and the front airbag and room for the passenger as well. We have also taken the car seat on the plane, with narrow seats. It fit quite well, but I would HIGHLY suggest purchasing the backpack and additional strap, as it is HEAVY! I'm a single Mama and dragging a 30 lbs kid and a 30 lbs cars seat. Better if you're installing in one vehicle and leaving it. LOVE LOVE LOVE the rearward facing tether, which limits the head excursion in an accident, as so few American car seat manufacturers offer this safety feature. My child is still REARWARD, having turned 6 this month (38 lbs and 39.5"), and is still fitting within the specifications for rearward, let alone the 90 lbs limit for forward facing. When forward facing a friend's child in the vehicle, it allowed other passengers ability to freely pass through the rear seating space, and allowed him to even rearward face at 4, and 48 lbs and 42" (he's a big boy). As previously mentioned, the ratcheting system is a pain, wish it could be better, and a no-rethread harness would be a Godsend for this.. We have had the Radian car seats since our first Sunshine kids 80, and have loved them ever since.

Beautiful like the picture
Looks very luxurious and feels very comfortsble and secure. It's a heavy seat, as expected. Installation was easy and straight forward. The angle adjuster foam is very useful, you should buy them together. It adds an extra step to the installation process which could be a minus. I also find it difficult to loosed the latch belt when removing the seat (quite impossible actually, my husband had to use a screwdriver to do it). Other than that I really like the seat and so does my 16 month old.

I love the car seat but...
I love the car seat. It seems sturdy and is a nice fit for my son. It was just hard for me to get past the fact that I was sent the wrong color. My son's favorite color is green so I ordered black forest and I was sent the one with gray in it. It was disappointing which is why I could only give it four stars instead of five.

Great seat
Yes, it's heavy and really tall so not the easiest to maneuver. My almost 3 year old loves that she can sit rear facing with her brother, has plenty of leg room and is comfy. It's rally narrow and fits 3 across easily in my Acura. Love, love, love the print as we're a Bama family. The fabric is soft and foamy so it seems really comfy.

Heavy but such good quality
I love this seat. It is super heavy so if you have to switch it between cars frequently then it's not the seat for you but it feels so soft and the quality is great. I love everything about the seat. Also, I didn't find it difficult or complicated to install. The only other thing is go ahead and get the seat adjuster and include it in the costs when deciding which carseat to get. But overall I live this seat and my daughter seems to as well. I definitely recommend.
ProsSo comfortable and such good quality and sturdy.
ConsVery heavy and you need to buy the angle adjuster cushion which is dumb. It should just come with it.

Great carseat
I decided to try the Rainer since I read it last 12 years and our Radian Rxt last 20. When it arrived, I was super happy with the look and feel of the material! Since already owned the radian, I knew the basic set up and got it done rather quickly. The only "issues" I had was that I couldn't figure out the body and head insert very well and moving the crotch strap still takes forever. My 10 month old loves her new seat and my Oldest is jealous she doesn't have a diono seat.

Best car seat on the market
I am a certified CPST through SafeKids International and see and install car seats every single day. This is absolutely my favorite seat. I have multiple children in car seats and love that I can fit three seats side-by-side and keep them rear-facing through fifty pounds. Through my law enforcement experience i have worked a vast number of vehicle collisions with varying degrees of severity and would never purchase any seat but the Diono to keep my babies safe. Highly, highly recommend all of Diono's line of seats. Remember, a $300 seat used from the age of one through the legal age they can leave it according to Texas State Law, eight years old, come out to only $42 a year. That should NOT be too much to spend for your child's safety.

Amazing Car Seat!!
I spent so much time researching and reading reviews on car seats and finally decided on this one and am so glad i did!! Needed one for my 4 year old that would be safe and more comfortable and convertible for her growing needs. Got it faster than expected and was very simple to put together and set up in the car! Did alone and it was easily the most simple i have used since becoming a parent or even when taking care of kids in the family. Sturdy, great side impact protection, very soft and cushioned fabric and seat. Even my 4 year old says its "super comfy" And she loves it a lot! There is easily double the space freed up now in my back seat from her old convertible seat which is awesome! Highly recommend this all around! Wish i had gotten it sooner!
ProsEasy to set up, very compact and leaves plenty of room in the back seat, great side impact protection, wonderful leg room for long legged kids and very soft and cushioned.
ConsWish the cup holder was better, does not stay put and we always take water with us and she cant set her water near her so that is unfortunate.

Great price!
My daughter already had this car seat & I just wanted one for my car (it is very heavy & awkward to change from car to car) so I knew what to expect. The price was great & I just ordered it without first reading the reviews. After reading the consistently negative Yelp reviews I was more than a bit worried.....I received the car seat in about 7 to 10 days. Nothing wrong with the packaging or the car seat. Everything was great & I would definitely order from the company again.
ProsWell made car seat with good padding. It is narrow so it does not take up a lot of seat space (I have it in a Jeep Wrangler). If you don't have to move it from car to car this is a good option.
ConsThe seat is heavy & hard to get in & out of the car. Also, if you have it front facing, which we do for a 3 year old, it does not recline at all.

Heavy and hard to install!
My coworker recommended Diono to me because she loved it and was impressed with the steel frame! So I took her advice and bought a Rainer In a houndstooth! The Car seat is made very well and loved the safety and design features but it was quite difficult installing in my Nissan Pathfinder!! After 30-45 mins, my husband was able to install it without the seat wobbling back and forth! I wish it would have two latch devices on both sides! We decided to keep it but not invest in other ones for our youngest!

Very sturdy and secure!
Prior to this purchase, we were dedicated Britax customers. Our youngest son has grown so quickly that he outgrew his car seat, but is too young for a booster. Therefore we looked for a convertible car seat that still provided us with the security of the 5-point harness and would be a high-back booster, then backless booster. The Diono Rainier gives the highest weight and height tolerances for convertible boosters, while providing the flexibility to adjust the hip area for our growing boy. Some improvements are adjustments that the Britax has that makes the installation and maintenance much more user friendly. Firstly, the strap adjustments on Britax use a slider bar system vs restrapping on the Diono. Also the UAS clips are permanently affixed to the Britax car seats providing better stability. Overall, we would definitely recommend Diono and would purchase again.

Airplane ready
I got this car seat because of its material and slim design. It is easy to use in an airplane. It can also sit 3 in a row in the backseat. it is very sturdy and easy to adjust. My daughter is 2 and uses this rear- facing, depending on which vehicle we are in. The rear-facing position takes up a lot of room. The only con I have is that I do not like how the seat tightens. It takes a while to 'click' to the right tightness.
ProsSafety. Airplane use. Slim design. Can fit 3 in a row backseat. Very sturdy material.
ConsHeavy. Have to 'click' to tighten restraint- not as fast as just pulling it tight.
Best UsesEveryday use. Airplane use. If need 3 car seats- can all fit in backseat because of slim design.

LOVE meets SAFETY!
I use the car seat everyday! we had a winter baby so we used a carrier at first then transferred to Diono, we love every min. Our son is safe and comfortable and no longer cries in the car. We are looking at buying a second one for our 2nd car. The car seat is well made, and securely and easily can be taken in and out of the car. When used in rear facing mode it does take up a bit of room (fits in ford focus) but forward facing can still fit 3 people in back. I cannot tell you how much I love this carseat. It is easy to transfer and take the baby in and out (even kicking toddlers!)

Peace of mind
It is a great car seat indeed. I feel very safe with my kids in them. I have two. However it is heavy to haul around because of the steel frame for safety, so we don't. Installation is easy once you followed the enclosed instructions and watched the video on YouTube first. Once installed correctly, seat does not move around which is key for proper installation. I hope that help. I am buying a 3rd one for our 2nd vehicle. Love it so much, I wouldn't buy anything else.
ProsSleek clean Design, nice style, good cushion and strong big buckle to secure my little one in place.
ConsHeavy due to steel frame, but that is why I am buy the product. Safety first!!!

Amazing buy!!!
I had such a difficult time choosing a convertible car seat for my 8 month old. My little guy is in the 97th percentile for height and weight and has been since birth. I knew I needed a car seat with extended rear facing weight so he could stay rear facing for as long as possible. This seat fit that bill. It's sturdy but comfortable for my son. I love how it has a low profile so that it is so much easier to get my son in and out. Definitely recommend!!!

Best Car seat Ever
To start off with, this is an easy to set up and install car seat. In addition to all the great safety standards that it meets, my long legged almost 3 year old feels super comfy rear facing in this seat. Also it is as easy as you're going to get traveling with a car seat since it folds flat.

Awesome Car seat!
My 7 month old is very long and screamed anywhere we went in his infant carrier seat. He loves this one never cries he can see out the window now and it seems so comfortable! The best part of all is how safe I feel he is in it I did a ton of research for the best seat safety wise and this is what I come up with!
ConsThe ONLY bad thing is that rear facing its a snug fit between it and the front seat but for everything else I can live with that!

Baby loves it!
We transitioned our baby at 13 mons when he was 29.5 inches and 22lbs, so far he loves his new seat! Seems obvious to me that he will have a lot of room/space to be rear facing for a while longer, we're hoping to get to 2 1/2yrs. The color is beautiful and the material is so soft, the baby seems to love it! I like that I'll be able to wash the padding if it gets soiled. Two drawbacks are: the thing is extremely heavy!! But I guess that solidarity means it's safe. Second thing; it wiggles a little bit even when LATCH is SUPER tight and extra strong husband has yanked on it for 20 mins. We secured it with the passenger seat it sits behind so it's basically locked in tightly. We have a 2016 Honda Odyssey but the seat is so slim, I know it would fit well in any car.

One of the best convertible car seats
Of all of the car seats we have tried for our three children, this is in the top of our list! They are narrow, super solid, the belts/clips are excellent -- they lock, unclip and adjust very easily. The children love the colors and that they can do the chest clip by themselves. As wel all know, doing things by oneself as a toddler is important! We would highly recommend these seats to anyone no matter the size of vehicle. The children sleep well in them, if need be and they should be great for our cross-country road trip this summer!
Best UsesEverything! They will last until they are 120 lbs, which should be plenty long!

Not for small infants
Purchased this for my 16lb 6 month old. Not impressed with the headrest. My little one sits unsupported and has great head control however even with the infant insert in place, her head bounces all around. Not sure how this would even work for a 5lb baby as the specs state. There aren't different angles in which the seat can be placed unless you purchase the angle adjuster (which only sits it up straighter). Also, the biggest pain to install. I have a 2012 4Runner and had great difficulty tightening down into the seat using the LATCH method. We are keeping ONLY as a second seat in my husband's car for when she is bigger.
Cons-Not for infants -hard to tighten -poor head support -does not offer different seating angles
Best UsesToddler only.

I love this seat
I love this seat to keep my very large son rear-facing as long as possible. We have been in 2 wrecks and each time I tried to replace it with another seat for extended rear-facing and HATED the designs. We just keep coming back to the Rainier! This one is just so comfortable for him and because he's so large the shallow sides make it a breeze putting him in compared to others. I do wish they had a model that went to 49 inches rear facing in addition to the 50 pound weight limit as I would like to keep him rear facing until 4 as that is shown the safest. I think with the 44 inch height we may only make it just past 3 in this one - which is still a feat for a child his size! Other than that, I don't think this seat can be improved on. Oh, and the angle adjuster is totally worth the extra few bucks!

Bought This for Our Grandson...would do it again...
After extensive research on car seats, we bought this one. We loved the fact it went from infancy to 120 pounds which means we never had to buy another one. It came with a 10 year warranty. This thing is Not light weight. It is very heavy. Thus it will easily break or be damaged in a car accident. Installed correclty, it will not budge once it's installed. When I installed it, I put it in the center of the backseat, as that's what our local law enforcement dept recommends, as it adds additional protection, since most accidents are side hits. If you have a problem installing, take it to your local police dept, they usually have someone there who does that free of charge. If you install it and have a problem with your seat belts coming lose, it's not the car seat, it's your seat belts. They likely need to be replaced. Assuming you're installing it correctly. And yes, there is a wrong way and right way to install not only this car seat, but all car seats. According to our local law enforcement office, most are installed incorrectly. This car in one of the best, if not the best, on the market and I highly recommend it. But do note, it's not lighweight. It's meant to withstand an accident, whether minor or severe. It's meant to protect your child, head to toe. Our grandson found it easy and comfortable as well. He really liked the cup holder. lol..what kid wouldn't ? But this. It's a great car seat. You won't need another one. Just know, it's heavy, it's strong, but it's to keep your child safe. It won't break in an accident.

Happy with my purchase
Initial set up takes a some time, but adjusting it later isn't so hard. A lot of people have complained about installation being difficult but it's mostly just because it's so heavy. But if you're looking for a carseat to move in and out of your car on a regular basis this is probably not the seat for you. We bought this seat for my son at 6 months and he is noticeably more comfortable than he was in his infant seat or Cosco Scenera. If you're going to use it rear-facing with a smaller car you'll want to buy the insert the goes underneath, it barely fit in my F-150 without it.

Great Carseat
We have the Diono Radian RXT with our first child, and wouldn't have anything else! As soon as I found out that Diono made an upgraded version of the RXT, I knew that's the one I had to have for our second child. Great car seat! Super comfortable!!!

Love this seat!
I am a certified passenger safety technician. During a car seat check event, I noticed Diono does not have a history of recalls. When working with a family with a child that has special needs, this seat is one of the top choices to talk about because the harness weight is high, it accomodates rear facing longer, and has a backing if in booster seat mode. I picked this for my toddler after working with it hands on. The installation is different but actually doable. It may take a second to become aquainted if using the rear facing platform because other seat companies do not use the same design. This is my favorite seat and my son loves it too because his legs are comfortable, and he can get in to it on his own with out help. yes, we are in the independent toddler stage and getting in on his own is a big deal ;) .
