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.

The crotch buckle digs into my daughter's leg. Definitely not ideal for the long road trips I bought this carseat to use for.

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

We've had our Radian RXT for about a month now and my 2 year old loves it! Purple is her color. The memory foam is wonderful, especially on the straps. She falls asleep almost every time we go in the car! My husband was impressed with the steel frame. This is an extremely well built car seat and was worth every penny.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    I bought this just before I went on vacation from Japan to the midwest. I will admit that backpacking it and ergoing my 15 month old through an international airport was not a fun time (mostly due to an old back injury), but compared to trying to lug a non-collapsible/non-backpackable carseat for the plane, it was great. I had it installed securely via LATCH before my father could get a proper hello hug from my son. My daughter is getting ready to move to a convertible seat and am anxious for her Pacifica to get here. :) I'm so thankful that my friend recommended this company to me.

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

      We've had this seat for over a year now. It's been through a lot, to say the least. I did buy the angle adjuster. It's a must for midsize cars like mine, 2001 Accord. My son is still rear-facing at 2y4m old. He honestly cried in every single seat I bought before this one. He hated feeling confined. This seat gave him the option of being safe and comfortable. LATCH made the install super easy. I love the lower anchor locks. Seriously, they're super easy to use. Now I use the seatbelt to install and it's difficult in some bechiles of the seat belts are slicker than mine. But I just turn the car seat sideways and thread it through. Then I buckle it while holding the slack. Then I turn the seat right ways and start tightening. It sounds like a lot but it only takes about two minutes. My son weighs about 38lbs and is about 38in tall, mostly leg. He's still on the third harness slot since it's below his shoulders and the next one is still above. I do wish it came with thinner shoulder pads. The ones it came with are really thick and I couldnt get him buckled correctly with them on. If you decide to buy this seat, definitely purchase the angle adjuster with it. You'll get a lot of room back when it's installed. We also bought the waterproof seat cover. Definitely worth the ten dollars too. It's great for leaky diapers and spilled drinks and food. It saves the hassle of having to wash every time.

      Love Diono!!

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

      We have had one for our son for over two years now and is working great and just purchased a second one for baby #2. We have big kids so both were in the seats around 5&8 months; the infant carriers got to heavy to lug around. Recommend getting the block or putting a towel under the seat to raise it up when rearfacing. You can definitely have your child rearfacing longer in these seats (we went to 34inchs/just over 2 for our son, and could have easily gone longer). The covers are easy to wash. Accessory must haves: seat protectors, travel bag and extra strap. Difference in design from 2012-2014: the new strap covers; which we love, and would like to buy separately for our son's older model.
