I was crossing an intersection, when the passenger side of my car was hit by an SUV going about 40 mph. My car spun around a couple times, and I looked back immediately after impact to find that my toddler was fine, and his seat was not moving at all during the spins. I immediately got out and removed him, and while the side of his seat received some marks from the impacting door, he was fine and in place. The car (a 3 year old Mazda) was totaled due to the extensive passenger side damage.I am so glad we made the decision to purchase this seat. I LOVE the fact that these tether rear facing. We replaced it with a Rainier for mine & my husband's car as after a side crash the extra siding seemed nice. However, this is a great seat and I have recommended it to EVERYONE over the past 1.5 years.

I purchased this seat in December 1, by late January I noticed some fraying and wear on the seat cushion. My son, 5 years old, sits forward facing and usually wears his uniform pants (soft blue dress pants) when he rides in the car. He can climb in and out on his own, I am not sure why the fabric is pilling and fraying as much as it has, but at this rate, I doubt it will last the full 10 years (I planned on my younger child using it when my son out grows it). The fabric is "Eclipse" which I see is retired, perhaps for good reason. Perhaps the nylon or micro fiber covers will hold up better. On the positive, my son loves this seat. He like that he can rest his head on the wings and sleep on long car rides. It feels very sturdy and safe, thankfully K have never that that aspect tested. I am hopeful we will have a 3rd child eventually and I like that I can most likely fit 3 across.

Great Car Seat!
About Me Parent of Two or More Children
Comments about Radian®RXT:
When our second child was born and needed a convertible car seat, we purchased the Diono for our oldest. He was close to outgrowing the specs on his previous seat. We are very happy with our decision to purchase the Diono Radian, and I am not shy about sharing that with anyone who will listen! My son just turned 3 years old. He was 36 pounds and 41 inches tall. In almost every other car seat, he is close to outgrowing the maximum limits for forward facing and definitely rear facing. At 3, he is still rear facing hte Radian. He is very happy and comfortable in his car seat, rear facing. We will be purchasing a second Diono soon for our youngest child.

Saved my son's life!
By Grateful mom
from Cincinnati, OH
My family and I were traveling on vacation, and had an accident after being hit by a semi. Our vehicle did several spins, and rolled several times. My one year old son was seated behind the passenger's seat, the side of impact. As we were rolling his window broke. Once we came to a complete stop, his seat had not moved. He had NO injuries. He was the only one in the car completely unharmed. The car was totalled. I'm convinced it's because of the reinforced steel/aluminum frame. I'm forever grateful for how well made this carseat is. Thank God for the friends who purchased it as a shower gift. This carsest saved my baby's life.
Only 1 drawback
By First time momma
Comments about Radian®RXT Daytona:
After doing a lot of research, the reason we went with this seat over other brands was because it was narrow and would allow it to be next to our infant seat when our next child is born. By far the biggest drawback is installing this seat. We have the seat in the middle and can't use the latch system. Installing with a seatbelt is difficult because you need to use the locking clip and even with it, I still think it's tilted a bit. And we had a certified child seat technician install it! I wish they had a built-in locking clip like our infant seat does. Having said that, I used it in a different car with the latch system and that was a much easier installation.

Comfortable and Narrow
By Kana's Mama
from Honolulu, Hawaii
My daughter outgrew her infant car seat and this diono car seat is perfect for her. I love that it will grow with her and turns into a booster seat. I also love how narrow it is and fits perfectly into my Nissan Cube.
By Mama of 2
from Clifton Park, NY
I read reviews that the harness was difficult to adjust and I was skeptical...but it is VERY easy to adjust, way easier than the previous seat that we had in our car. Our son (11 months old) seems to be more comfortable and at a better recline position as well. It also seems that he has an easier time seeing out of the windows due to the narrow profile. Overall - we love it!!!
So far very good
from Lincoln, NH
We have a third one on a way, so we had to find a car seat that is super safe but also narrow enough to fit 3 next to each other in a regular sedan. We don't have this car seat too long, but so far love it.. Feel truly safe with it.
Great Car Seat
