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 (Heather):

We purchased this seat for our daughter, now 5.4 years old, two years ago. I wish we had bought it sooner! We love everything about it! It is so easy to install/uninstall. The top tether is easy to tighten and is long for reaching lower anchor points. The harness is great and easy to tighten and loosen. The durability of this seat is amazing! My daughter loves it and is so comfortable in it! One of my favorite features are the slits in the fabric to make tightening and installing the seat beyond simple! The only downfall, in my opinion, is the weight. Dont let the weight deter you tho, I highly recommend this seat to everyone! I tell all of my parent-friends about it! I rate this seat 5/5!

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Heather):

Overall, my husband and I like this car seat. It is easy to get our son into and out of it. We love the safety features and one main reason for the purchase was due to how long we can keep him rear facing (as he is consistently 95+ percentile in height).
Unfortunately, I'm considering a new seat for our son due to the heat factor. He is hot by nature and will be drenched on some days when we take him out, even with a tee shirt and the ac on. That makes for a miserable trip for the poor guy, who can't even communicate his discomfort yet.
My husband would say the worst thing about this seat is the weight. We took it on a flight to CA from NY and it was a nightmare. He couldn't install it very easily (securing it was a doozy and took lengthy amt of time) and the sheer weight was killer. Needless to say, it was checked for the flight back home.
If your kid isn't a human furnace and you don't plan on moving the car seat at all, I'd def recommend this seat.

Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Heather):

I am convinced this car seat saved my son from receiving more injuries. We were in a bad car accident with frame damage to the car, a lady T-boned our car. My husband and I wound up with whiplash and some bruising. Our 18 month old son was scared, only had light bruising on his arm from hitting it against the frame upon impact but other than a small arm bruise he was completely safe in his car seat. I love this car seat and will be purchasing the same one as a replacement seat for our kiddo. This car seat absorbed the impact and we believe it honestly saved our son from more serious injuries!

    We have heard wonderful things about this seat for a while and decided to give it a try. We are SO impressed. I wanted a seat that my 6 year old would still sit in with a 5point harness and she loves it. The seat it a lot narrower than most seats and very well made. I highly recommend!

      Comments about Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat (Heather):

      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
