Great seat if you need to fit three car seats in one row
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 didn't purchase these originally instead of buying separate infant carriers.
Prosfits 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

Great car seat
I love the Diono RXT. Ive been using one for my 22 month old since she was 9 months old & I just bought another one for my 7 month old. They are easy to install, narrow across the seat, and my daughter is very comfortable in it. I also very much love the safety features and that the frame is made of steal. This car seat was recommended to me by a fireman so I knew it must be the best. I should also mention that both my daughters are very comfortable in this car seat.

Great for small cars, feels very safe for my precious little ones.
I really like this car seat. I have a small hatch Audi and it fits between two other average sized car seats (Safety first air). I will buy 2 more Diornos, so I know it will be perfect for my older kids until they over-grow the seats (at age of 11, probably).

Diono FTW!
We got the Diono Radian RXT and love it! We've had Graco, Chicco and Britax for our older kids, and we're really liking the Diono car seat. It is very heavy, so it's not easy to move from one car to another, but that's something we don't encounter on a daily-basis. Overall, I highly recommend this car seat!

Good overall carseat
This seat is easy to install. The one downside is how long the back support is on this car seat. It takes up a lot of space when rear facing. The one upside is that it is a slim profile on the seat so you have more room between seats. Overall this seat is pretty good and my kids love to sit in it.

The seat works well for kids with regular torso-lengths
My youngest is a regular-sized kid for his age and fits into both his 120 and his RXT just fine. My oldest is 6 yrs, 50 lbs, and 50", but his shoulders are already touching the bottom of the wings in the RXT. That seat isn't great for kids with long torsos.

Love this car seat!
We love the diono. It’s not too bulky like some can be and it seems comfortable for our 1 yr old. It is heavier than most but I’ll take that for a steel frame. I deducted one star because of the installation. It’s relativeky easy but you can’t really transfer this car seat to others cars easily. And without the angle adjuster I’m not sure what car it would fit into without the passenger seat pushed all the way up! But it’s east to wash and safe for my boy with a slim design so I’m sold!

This is our second Diono, and (after trying multiple other cheaper car seats) the quality of this brand just can't be beat. This is a solid, steel-framed car seat that ranks HIGHLY in safety. It's the only car seat that can fit 3 in a row! We love Diono!!

great, sturdy seat
first the bad news. This thing is heavy. It has to be heavy to provide so much protection so it is worth it. Took some time to install the first time but it is great once you know how to do it and it keeps baby cool which was an issue with other seats we tried.

Love how slim the seat is, can fit 3 across, but after purchasing i am finding out that it is nearly impossible to get a proper install with the Dionos. They changet he rules, certain seatbelts dont get tight enough. Too many issues.

Super pleased with the Radian!
We purchased two Radians. In the past, we have used Britax convertible seats; I have much older kids and have had Boulevards and Marathons, and we currently have two Marathons in our other car. We needed something with a higher rear-facing weight for our beast child, and the Radians have been reviewed so well (both professionally and by friends). We were trying to choose between this and the Clek Foonf for back-to-front space and a higher weight limit, and these were smaller. We have not been let down. They are easy to install. They are narrow. They don’t take up as much room front-to-back (but buy the wedge/positioner if you have a rear facing kiddo). The thing that impressed me the MOST is that these seats feel truly comfortable. I like the solid, darker colors because they don’t show dirt or stains like many other seats I’ve had. I’m a sucker for bright colors and fun patterns, so this isn’t something I thought I would like, but I do. No complaints. Be warned, though: This seat is heavy. I cannot emphasize that enough. If you are someone who has to move seats a lot or, more importantly, if you need to have a car seat that you use frequently for air travel, this may not be the right choice for you. Otherwise, it’s a great car seat.

Love the safety and comfort these provide
I was replacing car seats for my almost 1 year old and my 3 year old. Though I had the Nextfit convertible, my toddler just didn't like it much b/c she felt squished in it though she was a very slender child. I had planned on getting her into a booster seat at 4 so wasn't really interested in buying a new carseat. But after some research found the Diono Radian RXT. I loved the safety ratings and understood it was very heavy. But both these seats would be going in the captains chairs in the 2nd row of my SUV and I planned on never moving it. But what I really loved is that the sides were relatively low profile and felt roomier to my daughter. She didn't fall into her seat like other convertibles but just sat into it like a regular chair which made my job easier b/c I didn't have to help her dig herself out anymore.I also purchased a wedge seat adapter piece for my youngest daughter's seat so she is able to see outside the window or across to her sister easier.I got the black scarlet which looks nicer and is softer than expected. Easy to clean and relatively easy to install...the lifting it into the car was the hardest part. Just YouTube it and you should see quite a few Diono installation videos.
ProsExcellent safety ratings. Works for every stage from birth to booster and comes with all the cushions you'll need for each stage. Easy for toddlers to use.
ConsHeavy...if you're planning on moving the car seat between vehicles, this may not be the ideal carseat.

Great Car Seat
I already owned an older model of the RXT (about 3 years older) and love it. So, when I needed another seat for the younger brother, I decided to purchase the RXT again. This time I bought two, one for a Mercedes Benz C350 and one for a Toyota Sienna. The seats were easy to install in both cars. In the C350, with two seats (one in the rear center and one in the rear passenger side), I still have room for someone to sit in the rear driver seat. In the Sienna we also have a Britax car seat. In comparison, the Diono straps are much better. The Britax straps constantly get twisted. This is not a problem with the Diono seats. The Britax also takes up much more space in the car as well.

Solid and safe car seat
We've owned this car seat for a few weeks now, and so far I really like it. The steel frame construction and extended rear facing were the main selling points for me. Installation took some time, but I have peace of mind knowing the car seat is securely attached to my car. I especially like the tether that attaches from the back of the car seat to the front seat track which is bolted to the frame of my car. I purchased the optional angle adjuster which added several inches of space between the car seat and the back of the front seat in my tiny car, and also made the car seat conform better to the backseat of my car, which makes it feel even more stable and secure. When I try to move the car seat side to side with my hand, it barely budges at all. In addition to all the great safety features, the car seat's low profile makes getting my son in and out of the car seat much easier than with other car seats. He also seems to enjoy the freedom of movement he has in this seat compared to others.

Poor engineering and non existent product support.
The plastic on rear facing base turned white and warped after 15 months of use. Diono customer service refused to provide a replacement, they only guarantee their seats for 12 months from date of purchase. The 5 point harness gets stuck constantly, especially when the seat is installed rear facing. I have to fight to tighten the harness each time I put my children in these seats. The shoulder strap for travel is useless. The clips for installation in the car should be self ratcheting for this price point. My husband and I have to fight for 30 mins with each seat to get it properly installed (where another brand takes 10 minutes per seat maximum, for one adult). Never tested this seat in an accident but with it's severe engineering flaws I'm not confident that this seat will protect my children and the company does not stand behind their product. Recall "repair kit" is ridiculous.

Sadly disappointed
I have read so many fantastic reviews about the diono radian rxt, I thought for sure I was buying the right one. It's construction is amazing, however, my tall 4 year old boy (both his parents are tall) was having issues with his "goods" being pinched due to the lack of range between the back of the seat and how far his bum came out. We tried tightening it less to give him more freedom but it was too loose to be safe. We have since moved him into the booster mode after losing battle with the lack of "space" the five-point system gave him (he's now 5.5) only to be disappointed again by the booster system. Though he is no longer being squished, the head rest continues to slide down as it will not lock in place, (please advise if I am doing something wrong in this regard, seems crazy it doesn't lock) which puts his seat belt at the wrong height. I readjust the headpiece before driving everyday! Also, if he leans forward, the seatbelt catches on the booster shoulder guides and won't retract. I thought it was our seatbelt so I tried out another booster seat and the belt works perfectly with it. For the amount of money we spent as I have three kids and needed a narrow seat, I am so disappointed. We have not recommended this seat to our friends nor would we recommend it to anyone reading this review. Such potential in a seat but too many faulty parts. And a hefty price to not feel like your child is safely secure...

Great Slim Convertible Seat
I love this car seat for both of my kids. I originally bought one for my daughter who is my older child, and it was so easy to get her in and out that I decided to buy a second for my son when he was ready for a convertible seat. We have several other convertible seats between my husband and the grandparents (graco 4ever, britax marathon, and evenflo convertible seat) but this is by far everyones favorite. It is rather heavy, but if you're not moving it from one car to another on a regular basis it's not an issue and the steel frame makes it very safe. Rear facing in my Ford Escape does limit front seat room quite a bit, but forward facing doesn't take up more room than the regular seat. I can fit an extra passenger in the backseat even with two car seats. Goal accomplished! I wish you didn't have to take the car seat out to rethread the harness but it's not that big of a deal.

Very compact and easy to use
We bought this seat for my 2 1/2 yo son to replace a Britax Boulevard, which shifted over to my 10 month old daughter. We were hoping it would fit better in our small car, a 2003 Subaru Forester. It does, wonderfully. Besides being narrow (which is less of a concern for us with only 2 kids) it is small in depth as well and doesn't stick out beyond the seat allowing for my husband to fit in the car again because the front seat doesn't have to be pushed all the way forward. We bought the Britax for easy install and car switch, but it really isn't that much more complicated with the Diono. The straps are easy to fit to the kid and easy to tighten appropriately. Color is beautiful. My son loves the cup holder. He also seems really comfortable.

Not only do we love the steel frame, but these are also the only car seats that fit in the captain chairs of our Toyota Sienna. They are narrow enough to fit, but still provide enough space for our boys to sit comfortably. We have been using the Diono Radian RXT for over 4 years and couldn't be happier. We had to order another seat and couldn't beat the price from Albee Baby plus free shipping!

I bought this seat for my daughter for our Honda CRV. We got this one specifically because it has a cash back offer at the time of purchase which saved more $$ over the other colors. But I kind of love it. I highly recommend the angle adjuster. It makes the seat angle better so you gain some leg room as a passenger. Even in a larger car like the Honda CRV, it was needed!!!

Hard to tighten but overall very solid and pleased
The car seat is as solid as they come. 'Flat packs' and we took it to Europe with us and is flight approved. Only downside is that the pull tab to tighten the chest straps requires 2 hands, wrapped around the back of my hand, and a lot of force. We have a cheaper seat in my Husbands car as a back up and can 1 hand tighten that one. Had it checked with the Retailer and was told it was normal functionality.Other than that (and we're almost to the point of converting to a booster) it's been awesome.

Change isn't for the best
I purchased 2 of these 5 1/2 years ago after a ton of research. I later became a CPST and am so happy I chose these seats. There can be a learning curve to using these but are easy great seats after the initial set up and installation. I do have to say that Diono has made changes to the seat that are not for the best and are still charging the same if not more for a seat that has less to offer. 5 years ago the FF weight max was 80, now its 65. This was not an issue with my lighter son, but now with my daughter I am happy we can pass down older brothers seats that have the higher limit as she is a big girl. We never used these as a booster. My research before purchasing informed me that they are not a great option in some situations, which was fine with me as I already knew harness was safer to the max weight/height possible for the seat and that it was almost identical (realistically) to the booster mode for the size of a child that would fit in the seat. This is the best seat rear facing. I recommend it for anyone that has a very slanted rear door. Most seats have a really deep bucket shape that makes it nearly impossible to get a child in there rear facing. The low sides on a Diono (especial in a sedan with sloped rear doors) make it possible to fit a pre school child in the seat rear facing without hitting heads or folding and contorting. They have also removed the superLATCH and are now using the standard single tooth LATCH connector, and the top tether is no longer a V shape but a single anchor point. I can fit 3 of these in a Chevy HHR no problem and I love the front to back compactness. It fits between most front seats when installed in the center so there is no contact with either front seat! My son was bummed to go forward facing when he finally out grew the rear facing limits, and he was very sad when it was time to hand it down to his sister. He loved the shape and padding of the seat. He liked to sit cross legged and not many other seats work for that.

Great seat
Pros: Obviously the slimness and ability to fold. feels very solid without too much of a weight penalty over competition. Buckles easily and the shoulder/chest pads help keep the chest buckle in place so they don't have to be continually found and readjusted (pretty annoying on the wife's chico). The low seat makes getting kids in and out nice and easy. The protector/pad for the main buckle is a nice feature.Neutral: unless your car is huge or you don't care about the passenger seat you are going to need the incline adjustment pad for rear facing. Padding feels thin in areas. Since the seat is so tall the wings will inhibit your view when rear facing. Its nice that the seat gives a place to store all the buckles etc but they rattle without some modificctions.Cons: The strap system seems much more complex and cumbersome than other seats I've used. Additionally the weight limits when using the LATCH anchors are oddly low. Instructions could be more orderly and don't have a way to be stored with the seat.

We have had this seat for about a week now and my 3.5 year old loves that he can climb in the seat by himself and can see out the window better then his convertible carseat. I have a back condition so it is nice that I don't have to lift him any more. The straps are easy to buckle and pull snug. Fairly easy to assemble with the instructions. The seat is heavy but to be expected with a steel frame, which is the reason I purchase it. If planning to use for frequent flying and as a carry on, it could be heavy but for sporadic travel it would be fine. Overall has been great so far.
ProsSafety features Easy to install Child can climb in themselves Harness is easy to snap and pull snug

Awesome
I was searching everywhere to find the right seats to fit in our suv it has space but its more compact so fitting 3 was really difficult and it was even more difficult to get us into a bigger vehicle so I got pretty sad because I was having hopes of expanding our family when my husband is back from deployment . But I knew there were more seats out there for compact car and suvs .. looked online , saw these seats. Found a friend who had two of them asked her to try them in my car with one of my childs seats at the time. And we fit them fine, safe and comfortably. So I decided to just buy 3! And they fit amazing and the seats are made very heavy and well. Very safe! I am glad I got these new seats. Ill be buying again in the future possibly! Thanks!

solid car seat
I like how this car seat is built. Compact and strong. I can fit 3 in a row on my 2010 prius. The cup holder is super sturdy, my son has been hanging on to it many times to help him to get in the car.
Pros- compact! can fit 3 in a row on a 2010 prius - sturdy cup holder
Cons- installation is not friendly as others said

Diono Radian RXT
This is my second Diono Radian RXT purchase. My two year old is rear facing in it comfortably. It had high safety ratings and fits rear facing in the back seat of my compact car. I have purchased this one as a second car seat for my husbands vehicle until our baby is out of the infant seat, when it will be come his main car seat.
