I've had this seat for over a year. My 7 year old is tall (49 inches), but doesn't weigh enough for just a booster/seatbelt to keep her safe in a crash (she's just barely 40 pounds). I wanted to find a seat where we could still keep her in a 5-point harness. We have owned eight different seats for our two kids and this one, by far, is my favorite. I believe Diono has created close to *the* most perfect seat on the market. Pros: 1) Literally the only seat you'd need to buy to last your son or daughter's entire childhood. Rear-faces for newborns, all the way up to 45 lbs. Forward-faces with 5-point harness up to 80 lbs (my 7 year old is 49 inches tall and is still wearing the 5-point harness - she cannot do this in any other seat, even seats that boast extended harnessing). Converts to a booster up to 120 lbs. 2) Has a ten-year life, compared to 4-6 years for most other seats 3) Durable and safe with an easily-adjustable headrest and side-impact protection. I feel like my kid is in a tank when she's sitting in this 4) Folds for travel 5) Airline approved (not all seats are!) 6) Narrow enough to fit three across the backseat of a sedan - which is a huge consideration if you don't have a minivan or a 3rd row in your vehicle but you have 2 or more kids. Cons: 1) It's pricey (shop around, prices vary widely) 2) It's HEAVY (but that goes along with its safety and durability, so it's a trade-off) 3) It's not the easiest to install. I don't like the LATCH clips; I prefer the style of LATCH that other companies like Britax use, where you can adjust from both sides. This one only has the adjuster on one side. I don't feel like I can get as tight a fit as I can with other seats. It is also difficult to install using the seatbelt. I have very small hands, but I have such a hard time sticking my hands back there to thread the seatbelt through. 4) The adjustable headrest is a little *too* easy to adjust. It tends to slide down on my daughter with normal use (this could be a defect in my particular seat, though). Not enough of a nuisance to dissuade you from buying, though. 5). To adjust the height of the shoulder straps, you have to uninstall the seat, partially take off the cover, un-hook the straps from behind the seat, un-thread them from their current setting, and re-thread them back through the slots at the desired height. This is a big inconvenience to me because a lot of other comparable seats on the market have figured out how to adjust the height with the turn of a knob, and you don't have to un-install the seat. Come on Diono, you can do this. If you figure this out, you will have created the perfect seat. 6). My daughter complains that there is not enough padding on the seat part of the seat. I agree that it is minimal padding. On long trips, she complains about how uncomfortable she is, and she is a great traveler who rarely complains. She cannot be the only one. Overall, the pros outweigh the cons, and I wholeheartedly recommend this incredibly safe and versatile seat. It is expensive, but worth its weight in gold.

I had to do my research on the best carseat for our family since I have a smaller car ('05 Toyota Corolla)--and realized that I may have an issue with giving the front passenger enough leg room for them to be somewhat comfortable. After thorough research for the best type of carseats for compact cars, it came down to the Diono Radian RXT and a competitor brand. While I wasn't keen on the price (paid over $550 for two for our two vehicles), I felt that it was the right fit for our family based on the exceptional reviews I had read about, espeically for the safety reasons. My gripe with this carseat is that once my son is in it (currently it is rear facing) and I pull up on the strap to tighten him in, the straps NEVER get tight enough. At first I thought that maybe it was the way I installed it, so I uninstalled it, checked the straps and reinstalled it. Again, I have to pull so hard on the strap that I can literally make my car rock back and forth! I thought maybe it was just the angle that it happened to be in while in my car, but when I tried the strap on the seat in my husband's car (Mercury Mariner), it was even worse! You can barely pull up on the strap--it's almost like something is getting caught and won't let you pull up on it, but there's nothing in the way, so I don't know why it's so hard. To "fix" this, I have to pull on the (exposed) straps in the back to get the slack tightened and then at the same time, pull up on the strap to get rid of the slack. I cringe everytime I put my son in it and wish that I had never bought them. Another reason why I bought them was because it was rated to 120 pounds and that it would have to be the only car seat I buy. Instead of thinking that this is the only car seat I'll have to buy, I'm debating if I should purchase new ones--and who has the money to do that all over again...To make matters worse, we moved at the same time and of course threw out the boxes, so returning them wasn't an option. Overall, I was very excited to get them, but disappointed once they were installed.

        Comments about Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Storm:

        I drive a mid-size SUV and only wanted to buy 1 car seat given I needed to buy 3. This car seat fits 3 across, both forward facing and rear facing. As a mom of triplets, I definitely appreciate that this seat is rated for forward facing children starting at 20 lbs.

                I purchased this car seat to see if I would be able to put 3 of them in the back seat of my van. Bought it and installed to find out 3 would work. Will be purchasing 2 more. The quality of this cat seat is excellent and I like that it will grow with my grandchildren.

                  This is the 3rd Diono RXT that I own. I have three granddaughters ages 20 months to 5 1/2 and this car seat is perfect for them, and will last them until they are no longer in need of seats. I particularly like that with my arthritic fingers, I can get them into and out of the belts and buckles without too much difficulty! Love them!

                    If I could give this seat more stars, I would. It has great safety ratings, and had great reviews, so we decided to try it. After installing it in my car, my husband wanted one for his car and my parents got one for their car. It takes up very little room, yet keeps children secure. A huge plus is that it goes up to a booster, so my 30 lb 2 1/2 year old will be using it for a long time. We just had baby #2, and will be purchasing 2 Radians for him when he outgrows the infant carrier. I do wish it came in more color options, my daughter was very upset she could not get pink.

                    I bought this about a month ago and I love it! We have a smaller car and it fits great Facing backwards! There is plenty of room on the passenger side for a passenger in the front seat. The seat looks intimidating to install but once you do it one time it's easy. This car seat is a great size width wise too and doesn't take up an obscene amout of space in the backseat. It's a very sturdy car seat as well and I am very happy with our purchase.

                    Comments about Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Storm:

                    I have had this seat for about 16 months. I bought to rear face my son longer and we have loved this seat. The low sides have been amazing for loading and unloading whether I do it or he does. I moved him to a combination seat for his 4th birthday and bought a plum cover for my two year old. She has always enjoyed it herself. She usually rides in a Guide 65 or a Nextfit and would always smile and laugh when I put her in her brother's seat (my kids have almost the same seated height which helps). I love the RXT and my kids have never experienced head drooping even though we use it with the angle adjuster (absolute must if child meets necessary criteria... major space savor) because they rest their heads on the wings. Of course it is heavy. It's a high end seat which all seats that are, are about the same weight. The big harness pads are little odd to work with but I have learned a lot about the little quirks this seat has from the Facebook group Car Seats For The Littles. This seat is very low profile so I had a few issues when first installing with a seatbelt in my Equinox since it has long belt stalks but a few twists of the female end of the belt solved my issue. I have 9 car seats and have owned more all of different brands whether they be cheap or higher end brand seats (Safety 1st, Evenflo, Britax, Chicco and Combi) and this has been my favorite.
