My family and I were traveling on vacation, and had an accident after being hit by a semi. Our vehicle did several spins, and rolled several times. My one year old son was seated behind the passenger's seat, the side of impact. As we were rolling his window broke. Once we came to a complete stop, his seat had not moved. He had NO injuries. He was the only one in the car completely unharmed. The car was totalled. I'm convinced it's because of the reinforced steel/aluminum frame. I'm forever grateful for how well made this carseat is. Thank God for the friends who purchased it as a shower gift. This carsest saved my baby's life.

I bought this seat thinking it would be able to take my child from her last 5 pt car seat all the way to 57" tall and ready to move to a seatbelt. As a 5 pt car seat for younger children it is definitely a 5 star seat. However, Diono needs to be a bit more realistic when advertising it as a seat for children up to 57" and up to 120 lbs. Unless your child is built like an Oompha Loompha (in which case he wouldn't fit in the narrow frame) he has no hopes of using this seat until he nears the height or weight maximum. I had my older child, and several of her friends, all between 52" and 56" try to sit in the seat and there was no way they could get their shoulders underneath the headrest to lean back. Unless you were very thin, had an extremely short torso, and VERY long legs, you could not sit in this seat once you were over 51" tall (6 inches short of the recommended height for seatbelt only... And 6" short of what Diono advertises this seat can be used for). My older daughter has a BMI that places her in the 15th percentile (shaped like a model, tall and thin, has long legs, and is just shy of 54") she cannot lean back because, even when the headrest is raised to the highest point, the shoulders of the headrest are too low. I am really regretting this purchase for my Kindergartner. She is already over 48" and only has a few inches more to grow before she can no longer use as a 5 pt and wouldn't fit under the shoulders of the head rest to use as a booster. Give us a break, Diono... Advertise it as it should be used... A 5 pt and a booster mode realistically up to maybe 52" tall.

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

We've had this car seat for over a year. I absolutely love it. It's a tight squeeze to fit rearfacing in my car. But both my husband and I are on the shorter side. However, I've never had any problems installing it in other vehicles when we rent a car or putting in the grandparents cars. My only complaint is how heavy it is. We recently traveled and it was a pain to carry. Even folded up and in "backpack" mode. Trying to get the kids and the luggage and the car seat was a bit much. But it did fit on the airplane seat nicely.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    I'm a bit ambivalent about this seat. While it's absolutely solid, for the premium price I paid for this seat, I honestly wish it was a bit fancier. Two complaints
    1) The seat is quite tall so even in a small/medium sized car with more than average rear seating room (2014 Prius) AND using the extra pad for additional tilt, rear mounting makes it so that the front passenger must be seated quite close to the dash. Basically, you want your front passenger to be <5' 8" to sit comfortably.

    2) At the premium price point, why should I have to spend any extra money for this tilting piece of foam? That should be thrown in.

    3) Occasionally, I need to use my backseat so I have to remove/reinstall this seat. This repeated install did point out one feature that my previous setup had that this doesn't. On the Chicco infant car seat base, there was a flange/tab that helps lock the seatbelt you use to hold the seat to the car. It's a small piece of plastic that you slight the belt underneath to lock. I wish I had this because the Prius doesn't seem to lock the seatbelt as well as my Audi when you pull it all the way out and let it suck the belt back in. Eventually, I've had to re-tighten the seatbelt. Which sucks.

    Bottom Line: It's a safe seat. It seems comfortable for my son but I wish it had more. If I had to buy another seat, I'd probably roll the dice and try another one vs. re-buying this one.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    My one year old daughter is the one using it right now but plan on purchasing another one! We have a 3 1/2 year old daughter who would easily fit into it as well. Want to have 2 car seats in each car, so no moving carseats back and forth, with this Diono, feel very secure that our daughters are comfortable and most importantly very safe if anything were to happen.

    Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

    This is my second purchase for this car seat. My oldest had it for about a month whenever an 18 wheeler ran a red light and took out the front of the truck. All airbags deployed and my son did not have a bruise nor scratch on his body. Naturally I knew to order another one because it's a car seat I trust for my second child. It may be pricey but my children's safety is worth every penny!

      Very Sturdy seat, but it is so hard to get installed correctly. I can never seem too get it tight enough. The rear anchor strap is also very low and the buckle always sits behind the seat and is very hard to reach.

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat:

      We got this car seat and another so my wife and I both had one in each vehicle. This one was for travel and due to how skinny it is...plus great reviews. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to pull the strap and get the proper tightness. It is also way too tall. It is a great car seat for facing forward but terrible for rear facing due to the height. Rear facing is the safest way to use but we can't even fit it in our explorer because the front seats have to be moved so far forward. We are stuck with it now and feel it is a safe car seat but wife can barely get the thing to tighten so it can be a real pain to use.

          Very attractive and easy to use, it seems. I'd love to get this car seat to fully look and appreciate the features. Not much more to say, seems like it's fairly easy to adjust the straps, the head cushion is great for sleeping babies, its attractive, its affordable, and I genuinely feel like its very safe if properly installed.

          We love this seat! We transitioned our 7 month old out of her infant carrier and this seat was just perfect. She was so much more comfortable and happier cruising in this seat. The seat is certainly heavier than most but honestly, that tells me it's safe and sturdy. The latches are fairly easy to figure out. It really is a wonderful seat that can grow with your child. No complaints, just wish I bought one sooner!
