I am a certified passenger safety technician. During a car seat check event, I noticed Diono does not have a history of recalls. When working with a family with a child that has special needs, this seat is one of the top choices to talk about because the harness weight is high, it accomodates rear facing longer, and has a backing if in booster seat mode. I picked this for my toddler after working with it hands on. The installation is different but actually doable. It may take a second to become aquainted if using the rear facing platform because other seat companies do not use the same design. This is my favorite seat and my son loves it too because his legs are comfortable, and he can get in to it on his own with out help. yes, we are in the independent toddler stage and getting in on his own is a big deal ;) .

I picked this seat to keep my daughter rear facing as long as possible. I didn't mind spending the extra money to do so.
However I cannot install it properly in any of our family'a vehicles (Mazda 5, Toyota Tacoma, Hyundai Tucson). It is always loose. With some tips from a local car seat tech I was able to install the seat correctly and finally got it right enough that It did not sway side to side at the bottom. But then the next day it had loosened again. This happens almost daily. Tighten and then find it's loose again. We have used UAS and the seatbelt options and tried all three back seats.
My husband can't install it rear facing at all. He just ends up using it front facing. But we didn't spend extra money to have our 1 year old forward facing. VERY DISAPPOINTED. We own two other extended rear facing car seats. And it only takes a minute or two to install them. One of them is so easy even grandma can do it.
I have tried contacting the Diono 866 number but their business hours are not compatible with my work schedule.

      Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

      I use the car seat everyday! we had a winter baby so we used a carrier at first then transferred to Diono, we love every min. Our son is safe and comfortable and no longer cries in the car. We are looking at buying a second one for our 2nd car. The car seat is well made, and securely and easily can be taken in and out of the car. When used in rear facing mode it does take up a bit of room (fits in ford focus) but forward facing can still fit 3 people in back. I cannot tell you how much I love this carseat. It is easy to transfer and take the baby in and out (even kicking toddlers!)

            Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

            After extensive research on car seats, we bought this one. We loved the fact it went from infancy to 120 pounds which means we never had to buy another one. It came with a 10 year warranty.

            This thing is Not light weight. It is very heavy. Thus it will easily break or be damaged in a car accident.

            Installed correclty, it will not budge once it's installed. When I installed it, I put it in the center of the backseat, as that's what our local law enforcement dept recommends, as it adds additional protection, since most accidents are side hits.

            If you have a problem installing, take it to your local police dept, they usually have someone there who does that free of charge. If you install it and have a problem with your seat belts coming lose, it's not the car seat, it's your seat belts. They likely need to be replaced. Assuming you're installing it correctly. And yes, there is a wrong way and right way to install not only this car seat, but all car seats. According to our local law enforcement office, most are installed incorrectly.

            This car in one of the best, if not the best, on the market and I highly recommend it. But do note, it's not lighweight. It's meant to withstand an accident, whether minor or severe. It's meant to protect your child, head to toe.

            Our grandson found it easy and comfortable as well. He really liked the cup holder. lol..what kid wouldn't ?

            But this. It's a great car seat. You won't need another one. Just know, it's heavy, it's strong, but it's to keep your child safe. It won't break in an accident.

            Comments about Diono Rainier Convertible+Booster Car Seat 2016 (Black Mist):

            Initial set up takes a some time, but adjusting it later isn't so hard. A lot of people have complained about installation being difficult but it's mostly just because it's so heavy. But if you're looking for a carseat to move in and out of your car on a regular basis this is probably not the seat for you. We bought this seat for my son at 6 months and he is noticeably more comfortable than he was in his infant seat or Cosco Scenera. If you're going to use it rear-facing with a smaller car you'll want to buy the insert the goes underneath, it barely fit in my F-150 without it.
