  • This seat is extremely heavy. I personally feel that unless your child can sit correctly, even with the five point harness, their head will flop if they fall alseep. Mar 27, 2018

  • PERFECT! Not as bulky or wide as other seats so my kids can fit 3 across! Comfortable and will work facing backward from very young until preschool, and forward from 2 and up! Highly Recommend! Jan 17, 2018

  • I have 2 of these for my toddlers because they are space saving and sturdy. The only downside is how heavy they are but since they sit in the car most of the time it doesn't matter much. Nov 30, 2017

  • Best carseat evah! Infamous for being able to fit 3 together in the car. It's super easy to get baby or toddler in and out without struggling. The chest clip is thick and easy to clip and unclip Nov 11, 2017

  • Diono is by far the best car seat! It's built to last and comfortable! This one is slim and can fit 3 in a row perfectly! Sep 23, 2017

    I have two of these seats, they are perfect! The only car seat I could find for a compact car that would fit three across. Added bonus, they have a very high safety rating which makes me even happier. Aug 15, 2017

  • I feel like the seat belt holders are useless. They do not position on my lo properly and would cause more harm in a accident. I switched the seat out and will use as a 3 point harness Jun 22, 2017

    Narrow and metal frame. Peace of mind. Heavy though May 15, 2017

  • Love this seat! Makes getting three car seats across possible! My 4.5 year old loves his seat and says how comy it is. Feb 22, 2017

  • I love how narrow this seat is. We are planning to have three car seats across, so that was a big consideration. It's quite heavy, and a bit harder to install than some seats, but working ok so far. Oct 05, 2016

  • This was a tough transition from infant seat because it has few head and neck supports. Also, it was tough to fit rear facing in my small hatchback. However, it has such a long life ahead as booster! Jun 06, 2016

  • Goes from an infant seat to booster seat and is narrow enough to fit 3 across. Feb 02, 2016

  • We bought this for my middle son when he outgrew his infant seat. He was 3years 1 month before he outgrew RF. He is 5 now and is still harnessed. Love keeping him safe! Jan 26, 2016

  • I love that this is a narrow car seat and my child can use up too 100lbs.! Its like the one and done car seat. No need to buy a convertible and then a booster this is it. Nov 23, 2015

  • lets us put 3 carseats in a row Jul 13, 2015

  • Love that there is lots of room for her legs rear facing. Make sure to get the angle adjuster for rear facing use unless you have a huge car. Straps tend to get twisted more than with the britax. Nov 06, 2014

  • Love this seat! It takes up very little room and is so sturdy! Yes, it is heavy, yes is takes some work installing, but I would buy it again and again! Aug 21, 2014

  • This car seat is great! The straps are wide and thick enough that, even when the pads are off, they don't dig into our daughter's shoulders. She really enjoys her big girl seat. Jul 28, 2014

  • fits three across, very sturdy, folds up, grows with child. love it! Jul 24, 2014

  • I love this carseat. It's not very "cute" but it's so nice and skinny! Now I just need the incline adjuster.... Jan 30, 2014

    It ended up being pretty tight in our Honda Civic without the angle adjustor, but I like how our daughter can get in and out, and she seems pretty comfortable. Nov 07, 2013

  • Love how narrow this seat is, but still very sturdy and heavy. Oct 29, 2013

  • Love this seat. It is compact and the seat folds into itself for travel, which was a huge asset for us...renting low quality car seats for top dollar has been discouraging on previous travels! Oct 16, 2013

  • We have this for our older son. It's awesome. Great fit in our honda accord. Sep 30, 2013

  • A friend in the crash test business told me this was the best seat. Engineers from Graco etc moved on b/c they were tired of being told to make seats lighter, less expensive (= lower quality). They are crash tested at higher speeds. Made from steel Feb 08, 2013
