    We've had out Radian for a little over a year now. Bought it when my daughter was 10 months old. Reviews from friends were awesome. Said this is the way to go. My other daughter has a Recaro. and this by far surpasses the Recaro!! the extended rear facing and the angle adjuster option are a huge plus. Also, the size is wonderful. They are so slim, which makes them way less bulky in my opinion. we'd buy another in a heart beat. Diono also has awesome customer service! Looking for a car seat from birth to booster. Never having to buy another? This is the one for you!

    I had to do my research on the best carseat for our family since I have a smaller car ('05 Toyota Corolla)--and realized that I may have an issue with giving the front passenger enough leg room for them to be somewhat comfortable. After thorough research for the best type of carseats for compact cars, it came down to the Diono Radian RXT and a competitor brand. While I wasn't keen on the price (paid over $550 for two for our two vehicles), I felt that it was the right fit for our family based on the exceptional reviews I had read about, espeically for the safety reasons. My gripe with this carseat is that once my son is in it (currently it is rear facing) and I pull up on the strap to tighten him in, the straps NEVER get tight enough. At first I thought that maybe it was the way I installed it, so I uninstalled it, checked the straps and reinstalled it. Again, I have to pull so hard on the strap that I can literally make my car rock back and forth! I thought maybe it was just the angle that it happened to be in while in my car, but when I tried the strap on the seat in my husband's car (Mercury Mariner), it was even worse! You can barely pull up on the strap--it's almost like something is getting caught and won't let you pull up on it, but there's nothing in the way, so I don't know why it's so hard. To "fix" this, I have to pull on the (exposed) straps in the back to get the slack tightened and then at the same time, pull up on the strap to get rid of the slack. I cringe everytime I put my son in it and wish that I had never bought them. Another reason why I bought them was because it was rated to 120 pounds and that it would have to be the only car seat I buy. Instead of thinking that this is the only car seat I'll have to buy, I'm debating if I should purchase new ones--and who has the money to do that all over again...To make matters worse, we moved at the same time and of course threw out the boxes, so returning them wasn't an option. Overall, I was very excited to get them, but disappointed once they were installed.

    Solid, good features, fits three across

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    This is our fifth Radian seat, two in our other car and now three in our Volvo. They fit three across, including if the middle is rear facing. Som3 say they are too heavy but I disagree. The solid steel frame is heavy but I'll trade up in safety for down in portability any day. You buy a good carseat for the one-in-a-million chance it'll save your child'S life, not to make life easy on yourself. They come with cupholders, nice latch connectors, rear facing angle adaptors and more. So many other car seats feel like molded plastic junk, but not these. I highly recommend them to all my Internet strangers.

    Airplane compatible!!

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    I bought this for my then 18 month old to rear face. We had problems with our older car seat taking her on the airplane as it did not fit. With diono radian rxt, I love it! It fits in my car-you have to man handle the installation, it's not for the faint of heart. I suggest getting two back straps to pack it around vancouver airport as a backpack is way easier to carry it than trying to get toddler infant, all your luggage and a car seat on a plane is not fun. We bought a new truck and it fits amazing. She's now 4 years old and still fits well as she's tall but her weight is on the below average size. We bought a britax frontier for the other car but I took it back and bought a diono Pacifica instead. Like it way better. The only con I have is the weight of the seat but compromise for the safety, I will take it any day.

    Snug, sleek, and fits like a glove!

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    We were looking for another carseat that would fit better in our small SUV. Our son had sat in this carseat in a friends car and I was blown away by how sleek and slim it is. We love it!

    Amazing seat

    By JustineM

    from Canada

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    I bought this seat last month as my 4 month old HATED his infant car seat. I have to say it is hands down the best seat I've ever bought. I am a paramedic and mother of 3 so safety is very important to me. My 4 year old recently turned forward facing and I'm not sure if I still like her Britax seat. I'm tempted to buy her a Diono. Installation was very easy and the instructions are very easy to follow. I did find the seat belt covers to be too big and bulky for such a little baby but I emailed Diono and they mailed out small sized one free of charge (I was pretty impressed by that). The only thing I found odd was that it folds up for travel but I don't know who would use it for travel because it is SO heavy...definitely not a car seat move from vehicle to vehicle.

    Safe and secure

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    Very safe and secure, we feel comfortable knowing our daughter is using this seat. It is heavy due to the construction. The velcro padding on the straps was rubbing on her face and caused a brush burn but we adjusted the velcro and haven't had any issues since. The rear facing takes up a lot of space and pretty much has to go in the middle (in both our Honda Civic and Honda Ridgeline) or the front seats would have to sit up too far, so I don't this this seat would be good for twins in the rear facing direction. My daughter's toys also frequently fall on the floor since there aren't really any sides to catch them. We bought it for the safety and compact size and overall we are very happy with it.
