On February 2, 2014 we were traveling west on the 210 freeway in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We were driving in a 2008 Toyota Camry in the slow lane, traveling approx. 65-70 mph. A 2006 Toyota Corolla was also traveling west bound in the car pool lane, traveling approx. 70 mph. The woman reached back to hand a wipe to her child in the back seat which caused her to hit the cement center divider. She traveled across 3 lanes and hit us on the driver side, right into the driver and passenger doors. Our side curtain and driver seat airbag deployed. We were pushed onto the underpass embankment and spun around. We traveled back across the freeway and landed in the fast lane facing east. My husband was knocked unconscious and he and I both sustained cervical sprains, whiplash and soft tissue damage. (Diagnosed the following day at our physicians office). Our daughter was riding in the backseat on the passenger side. Other than being severely frightened by the loud impact and airbags she was completely unharmed. On February 6, 2014 Mercury Insurance deemed our car a "total loss." I can never thank RECARO enough for keeping my most precious gift completely unharmed! We will be customers for life!!

I have vw golf and my son is currently rear facing at 10 months.
When i installed it, he was leaning towards the back of car too much so when he falls asleep his head drops.
So after reading hundreds of reviews, I tried putting a couple of pool noodle/blanket under the car seat. But then the car seat wasnt stable.
After struggling for a week, i finally went to the fire station to get it installed correctly.
They told me not to put anything underneath, because its not safe.

After i got it installed by instructor, my son's head still drops.
And the seat is too bulky, i can hardly check the blind spot.

I think it willbe great once he begins sitting facing forward. But for now, it is just not comfortable.
I would reccomend if you have a big car.

This car seat has become mediocre.

Comments about RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat (Jett):

I recently ordered a replacement RECARO Performance Sport to replace the one I purchased a year ago. I am replacing the seat prematurely because I was involved in a minor car accident. When the new seat arrived I was disgusted to see that the product has changed and the product images have not been updated. First of all, the shoulder pads no longer have RECARO embroidered in them. Even the new embroidered RICARO logo for the center and sides of the seat looks different. Also, part of the seat that used to be gray is now black, and a different material. This is not what I expected from RECARO.

Great for older child!

Comments about RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat (Jett):

We bought this seat for our daughter right before she turned 6. She outgrew her prior seat due to height and all we could find were backless boosters for her. She has always been 80-90th percentile and as a concerned mother I did not want her in a backless booster until she absolutely had to be. She is now almost 7 years old, 4'1" and 76lbs and still fits so well in the seat. She loves how comfortable it is for our long trips since we live a ways from family and shopping! I just couldn't imagine putting her in a child's backless booster if I had this as an option!

Comments about RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat (Jett):

My son and I were stopped for construction traffic when we were rear-ended by a vehicle going approximately 50 mph. Because of this car seat, my 20 month old walked away without a scratch, bump, or bruise. THANK YOU RECARO!

Comments about RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat (Jett):

We have owned our Recaro Performace Sport for two years and absolutely love it. It is very well made. Our toddler is comfortable and safe all at the same time! We especially like the fact that we are able to remove padding to wash. Getting reading to purchase another for our second child.

Safe, great all around product!!

Comments about RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat (Jett):

When we saw our first two Recaro ProRides I had no idea why my husband was so excited about this brand (unknown to me) car seat. "They make race car and airplane seats, honey!" We got our first set of seats in 2010, and then two years later double ProSports which will last us throughout their car seat years. It's a huge bonus that they will last us up to the 8 years / 80b. rule in our state. That's a lot of shopping headache and time saved for me. We could not be happier. The safety is unmatched, and the quality has proven impeccable. They are easy to install, although maybe a little heavier than most - which I wouldn't trade because of the safety factor. We switch them out between a Volvo S60 sedan and a small SUV, Volvo XC90, for trips. Our 6 year olds are able to loosen the straps, but not unlatch the belts. We like that. We have also experienced Recaro customer service. With our first installation, of the different seats, we had at least two calls each time. They have been impressive. In an age where customer service is less courteous and more reactive, Recaro's staff is intuitive, knowledgeable, and proactive in solving issues. Thank you Recaro, we'll never go anywhere else.
