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.

I bought this seat thinking it would be able to take my child from her last 5 pt car seat all the way to 57" tall and ready to move to a seatbelt. As a 5 pt car seat for younger children it is definitely a 5 star seat. However, Diono needs to be a bit more realistic when advertising it as a seat for children up to 57" and up to 120 lbs. Unless your child is built like an Oompha Loompha (in which case he wouldn't fit in the narrow frame) he has no hopes of using this seat until he nears the height or weight maximum. I had my older child, and several of her friends, all between 52" and 56" try to sit in the seat and there was no way they could get their shoulders underneath the headrest to lean back. Unless you were very thin, had an extremely short torso, and VERY long legs, you could not sit in this seat once you were over 51" tall (6 inches short of the recommended height for seatbelt only... And 6" short of what Diono advertises this seat can be used for). My older daughter has a BMI that places her in the 15th percentile (shaped like a model, tall and thin, has long legs, and is just shy of 54") she cannot lean back because, even when the headrest is raised to the highest point, the shoulders of the headrest are too low. I am really regretting this purchase for my Kindergartner. She is already over 48" and only has a few inches more to grow before she can no longer use as a 5 pt and wouldn't fit under the shoulders of the head rest to use as a booster. Give us a break, Diono... Advertise it as it should be used... A 5 pt and a booster mode realistically up to maybe 52" tall.

About Me First Time Parent
Comments about Radian®RXT Daytona:
My tall, big, one-year-old son seems to love his Diono Radian RXT! He seems to like the freedom of movement and the visibility that it allows. My husband bought a different brand of car seat for his car but I prefer the Diono that I bought for my car! :) He had no complaints about putting the Diono together or installing it.

Works great for older and bigger 5 year old child. Headrest does not interfere with her vision, it is adjustable as well. Very slim fit, but room to grow, sturdy.
Best carseat on the market
About Me Parent of Multiples (Twins etc)
This is hands down the best carseat we have ever purchased, and w 7 kids we have purchased a lot. Very sturdy, slim so that it fit 2 plus a bucket seat in 1 row, easily washable cover. The best part is how solid it is- very safe

This is a well made product
Fantastic car seat! Only 1 issue with installing in car
from Las Vegas, NV
The car seat is great! I love it and my 17 month old daughter looks very comfortable in it. When she falls asleep, she even looks comfortable and not all wonky looking. The padding is very cushy and she is able to see around and not have to try and sit up like in the other car seat we have. She can reach the cup holder with no prob but I wish another one came with it so you can have 2 to start. There is room for four holders which is a great plus. The down side is it's pretty heavy and we won't be taking it in and out of the car. It also was difficult to install it correctly in our car. My husband had to put his knee in the seat and push it as hard as he could to get it installed correctly. After that though, it was smooth sailing and the straps adjust quite easily.
Love this seat!

Currently own 2 of these, one for my 3.5 year old (forward facing) and one for my 15 month old (rear facing). We love how slim the profile is, I can still sit somewhat comfortably in between the two seats in the back row when needed! We are expecting our 3rd child and are thrilled that we will be able to fit an infant seat in between the 2 diono seats as well. It is easy to tell whether the straps are tight enough or not and overall both boys seem very comfortable!

The comfort padding the goes around the buckle in between the legs comes off constantly, should have been sewed on better. Also the cup holder is really difficult to install. Other than that, it is a very sturdy car seat, feel secure with my child riding in it.
