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.

Best, safest car seat but huge

By Tess1234

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

We bought this car seat before our child was even born, reviewing a lot of different brands. This one is the most sturdy and the safest car seat we found, being lucky getting it with a nice deal. We call it tank-seat. For real safety, the child should be rear-facing until 4 years old. This seat fulfills all safety requirements and will serve our children until they outgrow it with their height (I almost could use this car seat -is until 54kg - average adult woman weight!, if I not be too tall :D) We put our child into it when he became close to the height limit of the infant car seat from the stroller. He is 13 months now and he complained before, when we put him into the car. Not anymore - his new seat is big, comfy and fun. Only cons is that it is really huge seat when rear-facing. Fortunately for us, buying this seat we were also selling our small compact car to buy the bigger, family car. We checked a few other cars and the seat was a bit too big for them (few toyotas, hondas and hyunday). Finally, it fits our car perfectly, but we got VW passat. I highly recommend this seat for the child safety but CHECK first if it fits your car - in rear-facing position it demands a big space on the back sit - definitely NOT for a small, short car.

Comments about Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

My coworker recommended Diono to me because she loved it and was impressed with the steel frame! So I took her advice and bought a Rainer In a houndstooth! The
Car seat is made very well and loved the safety and design features but it was quite difficult installing in my Nissan Pathfinder!! After 30-45 mins, my husband was able to install it without the seat wobbling back and forth! I wish it would have two latch devices on both sides! We decided to keep it but not invest in other ones for our youngest!

Big and difficult to install

By Natalie_O

from Ottawa, ON, Canada

Comments about Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

I bought this last Friday because it was on sale. Although I read reviews stating it was big, I assumed it would fit in my RAV4. WRONG! I'm 5"5 and couldn't sit comfortably in the passenger seat with the Diono installed behind me. We had to return it. Unfortunately, before deciding that we would return it because of its size, I spent almost an hour trying to figure out the instructions to install the seat. I had no idea which pieces to use for the rear-facing position and which to use for the forward-facing. The instructions for rear-facing are in two parts, with the second part written AFTER the first part of the instructions for the forward-facing installation.

Comments about Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

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 Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

        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 Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

        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.

          I HAVE A 4 YEAR OLD WHO IS 48 INCHES AND 60 LBS. FINDING A CAR SEAT TO ACCOMODATE HIM IN A HARNESS WAS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.HE ALSO HAS AUTISM SO A SEAT BELT ONLY IS NOT AN OPTION. ALMOST ALL HARNESS SEATS ONLY GO UP TO 65 LBS. AS AN ER NURSE I AM VERY SERIOUS ABOUT THE APPRORIATELY FITTING CARESEAT. THIS SEAT IS GOING TO HARNESS HIM TO 90LBS AND 57 INCHES TALL. I CAN FIT 3 OF THESE IN A ROW IN MY TINY HONDA CIVIC. I AM MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THIS SEAT. IT IS HEAVY WHICH IS PAIN TO SOME BUT MAKES ME FEEL CONFIDENT IN ITS SAFETY. ID NEVER BUY ANYTHING ELSE. WITH IT BEING GOOD FOR 10 YEARS AND GOING FROM 5 TO 120 LBS I WILL NEVER HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER SEAT AND IT WILL LAST FOR MY NOW 6 MONTH OLD TO RIDE IN NEXT.

          Comments about Sunshine Kids Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat - Black Midnight:

          I love this seat for my daughter with the low walls and sturdy steel design. I know she's safe and secure when I put her in it, and I know it is going to outlast her as far as state requirements go and I will just keep her in it till she outgrows the seat herself which I'm sure will be beyond all road requirements. She also seems to like it better than her first seat (The Graco MySize70) and although it is pretty bulky being in a still rearfacing position in our little Toyota Corolla she fits well and with the angle adjuster it's perfect behind the driver's seat. When we had it installed behind the passenger seat it seemed to create a pretty bad blind spot for us, that is why we moved it over, and since both my husband and I are pretty short it works fine for us.
