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.

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.

underwhelmed in every respect.

By RWang

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

I unfortunately had the same experience as the other single-star reviewer for a REAR-FACING configuration.The car seat would not sit in its "properly" installed configuration. I use "properly" in quotations because I made certain that the seat level line was level to the ground. Unfortunately I opted to NOT use a tightly rolled towel/pool noodle to prop the seat into the "as designed" safe-rear-facing position. So did I install the seat per the instructions? No. Do I trust a jerry-rigged, rolled up towel/pool noodle with my child's safety? No. I made a quick video of the configuration and the ease as which the seat could be flipped up and over.  Furthermore, I have always been a fan of the Recaro brand and know that it is a company that I have come to respect. However, to describe it gently, the quality of the car seat was underwhelming at best.  I ended up returning it.

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

We came across a sport on a year end change over my oldest was in need of a new seat after a few minutes of research we choice to take it home. My 4 yr old weighs 63 lb this is the only seat he is comfortable in and two he can stay in a 5 point strap at that weight. We are so in love with the seat we are looking for a back up now.
