I got the Radian RXT. Have had it since August 2014. Though heavy and bulky in rear facing position, I would have no other seat. Our lil guy has been in it since he was 2 months old. It's nice being able to wash the cover, knowing it is one of the top safe car seats, and comfy for our lil guy. It is built to last as well. For me, it is well worth the extra money. I have had the cheaper car seat, and comfort for the child disappeared within a couple years. I had to add padding to them so child was more comfy. The molded plastic didn't feel pleasant to me. Diano uses better quality materials that almost 2 yrs and an above average height and weight child, still goin strong and comfy for him

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 (Black Cobalt):

I absolutely love this car seat! We were gifted this car seat a few years ago and I have loved it! No complaints other than it's heavy.. it being heavy doesnt interfere with the fact that it is a great car seat! I will forever be thankful for the people that gifted a Diono to my daughter from the kindness of their heart!

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Cobalt):

      I am a Nanny, so safety is very important to me. I recommend this car seat to all my employers and many have purchased one for my vehicle. Having a safe car seat while transporting my employers children makes me feel so relieved because I know in the event of an accident, their children will remain safe and are less likely to be injured. I plan to keep my charge rear-facing in my vehicle until at least age 3. I know from past experience that he will have plenty of leg room. I love the ability to use the foam bumper to give my front seats more room when the car seat is installed. I've have children get sick in the car, and its so easy to remove the cover and throw it in the wash. I plan to purchase this car seat when i have children of my own.

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Cobalt):

      We love our Diono Radian RXT. My son (now 9 months) has been using it since birth, and it has always seemed very comfortable for him. We also have an infant carrier carseat in my husband's car. My son does not seem to like it as much, and seems to get uncomfortable in it quickly. However, he has never seemed uncomfortable in the Diono. We used the infant insert for the first few months, but we didn't really like the head support, as it seemed to make his head flop forward too much, so we didn't use it. The angle is nice rear facing, and his head has never flopped forward while sleeping. He always sleeps comfortably. The chest clip is really big, which makes it easy to clip & it never gets tangled up, unlike the car seat in my husband's car. The buckle itself has two straight clips which go into the receiver. It is easy to do. My husband's car seat you have to like fit two pieces together like a puzzle before putting it into the receiver, and it's a PAIN. WE LOVE OUR DIONO! My son is about to outgrow the height on his infant carrier for my husband's car, so we have purchased a second Diono Radian RXT for his car as well. And we just found out we are expecting baby #2, so my mom just purchased another Diono Radian RXT for my car for the new baby. We are loyal customers, and are really satisfied with the product. We love the safety features such as the extended rear facing, and forward facing with harness to 80 pounds, and that it also functions as a booster after that! Thanks!

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Black Cobalt):

      Our family has done foster parenting for more than a decade and we have 9 children. We have literally tried every carseat on the market. We have taken classes on proper carseat installation, and I am a professional engineer as well. I tell you this so you don't think I "just don't know how to do it right".
      Forward facing install is fine, our 5 year old who has CP and is very small for her age does really well in it.
      We bought a 2nd Diono for our 2 year old who is still rear-facing. The problem is that I can not get the carseat installed safely in our 15 passenger van. There is not a position I can get it into where the seat is not able to rock sideways very dramatically. There are even some positions where I can turn it completely sideways and almost upside-down. THAT IS NOT OK. I'm not sure how they tested this thing, but something is very wrong with the way it is designed to be installed rear-facing. And then there is our Prius... it's back is way too tall to be able to get it installed rear-facing behind the driver and still be able to drive. If your child is old enough to use it forward facing, it's a decent option. But for rear-facing... don't waste your time/money/energy.

        Turns 6 passenger car into a 2 with car seat installed in rear facing position. Front passenger seat must be all the way forward and completely unusable. Can't install in middle of rear seat because driver seat would need to be all the way forward. Can't wait until he outgrows it so I can crush it with my backhoe. I despise this thing!!
