I want to thank Recaro for their performance sport car seats. My wife was in a wreck last week that completely totaled her car. She hit a huge F-450 loaded work truck that was making a left turn at an intersection and turned out in front of her when he was supposed to be yielding. She is 35 weeks pregnant and had to have foot surgery. Our young boys (2 and 3yrs) were in the back correctly buckled in their car seats. They were able to walk away with only very minor bruises from the straps. The paramedic kept praising the car seats saying how they saved their lives because the car seats were such good quality and properly installed and the kids were tightly in the seats.

Thanks for designing and engineering the car seats that saved my kids lives. I have already ordered 2 replacement seats. I greatly appreciate the work of your engineers, manufacturers, and quality control team for designing, building, and proof testing such a great product As an engineer myself, I was overall very satisfied with the performance of the Recaro performance sport car seat.

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.

Best car seats I have owned

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

We have twins and lots of friends. I have purchased 10 boosters for dad, babysitter, myself and extras for friends. These blow the competition away! My favorite feature is the shoulder strap positioner. The seat belt NEVER slips out like on other popular brands. The cup holders come out for a quick wash in the dishwasher. The fabric cover slips off easily for a wash. These seats are super cushy and provide head support on those long sleepy car rides! The highback does come off, but we are not there yet... Too bad Recaro hasn't made simple booster for my 9 year old because I would buy it!


Outstanding product-durable, easy to install/use

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

In late 2012, we purchased 2 of the ProRide seats (1 for each car) after researching options. After almost 4 yrs of heavy use, I am highly recommending this product. The cloth material is durable and easily cleaned. The cover can be removed and put on again with little effort. I do feel that the black cloth may have ever so slightly faded from exposure to the sun, but no other wear can be seen. There are no tears, rips, rubs, stains, or blemishes in the cloth or the plastic. My son eats, sleeps, and goes on 2500 mile round trips to Nana's in the seat. We have used the ProRide extensively. The seat belts have always worked perfectly. The belt latch is easy to buckle for my 4 1/2 year old, but he can not unbuckle himself from the seat. However, I can unbuckle him with 1 hand. The seat is easy to install into most any car, from a full size pickup to a Civic to the captain's chair of a Traverse - rear facing or forward facing - LATCH or seat belt. It takes up less room left to right than other options. The overall construction of the seat feels solid and more substantial than others. Our son has always reported being comfortable in the seat, and to this day will fall asleep in it. He never complained about the seat blocking his view out the windows, but does have to sit up slightly to see directly to his left/right. He is on the verge of being too tall for the ProRide, which is what brought me to the RECARO website tonight. If it is at all possible for you to afford a RECARO car seat, you will be very satisfied with the level of safety, durability, and ease of use. We have friends who went with lessor brands and they definitely regretted doing so. Some had to replace seats after a year or so due to wear/tear, some reported having to battle the install, and still others reported uncomfortable kiddos. Again, if you can afford the RECARO price up front, you will be purchasing safety, comfort, and ease of use that will last for the duration of your need.


Perfect Fit!

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

I actually purchased two of these seats, one for each of my daughters. These seats are incredibly comfortable for them! We've made quite a few road trips with no complaints (one from Alaska to New York with a stop in Texas). I love how long kids are able to use these seats! My oldest child has been harnessed in one since she was 4 and is still able to harness at almost 10. We were unfortunately in an accident that caused around $7,000 worth of damage to my vehicle. There wasn't a scratch on my daughter! We love Recaro seats and will continue to buy them for the rest of our children!


Love love love it!!!

4 year old is long and lean and fits perfectly. This is her favorite car seat. She likes it so much, we are getting one for younger sibling now that he's big enough.
