Recaro

The best car seat ever By
June 29, 2009
I will just try this seat out. Ordered it for my four month old son, who grow out the regular infant carseat. I wanted something I can count on, and safe. This seat seems like that, and comfi too.
Can't Have Seats Side-by-Side By
August 6, 2009
I bought a Recaro Signo for my 9 month old when his car seat was lost at an airport while we were flying across country. I was extremely pleased with how safe it felt, I mean I can't even get it to move 1/2 an inch now that it is all strapped in. So I wanted to buy one for my 2 year old because his Eddie Bauer car seat just did not feel very safe at all. I ordered it and 2 days later I got it from BabyAge, which I am extremely happy about. I went to install it in our truck and they fit fine side-by-side BUT since the latch clips are so thick on these, they wouldn't both fit on the latch bar. It was about 1/4 inch too small. And this is in a huge truck, Im assuming all latch bars are the same length. So I had to install my rear facing carseat not in the middle seat but behind the driver seat next to the window. I was extremely disappointed in this even though I still feel that these seats are very safe in them selves. I am going to buy a window protector so if God-forbid I was in an accident and the window breaks, it won't get all over my infant.

We installed this seat in our sand rail. Fits nice with 5 point harness and will provide great comfort and appears very safe.

I trusted this brand when racing and I trust it to put my little girl in when I'm doing 30mph down the interstate
Great Seat By
June 27, 2009
I spent a lot of time reviewing different options when choosing a second seat for my daughter. We had purchased a Combi Zeus Turn (which is still in my husband's truck) before she was born, but needed a second seat as I was returning to work. I did not want a second Zeus Turn, because although we are extremely pleased with it, it will really not hold her rear-facing past her first birthday, and I wanted something with a higher RF weight limit. This seat received very high ratings on a few car seat boards, and after reviewing the manufacturer website also I was convinced it was the best seat out there.

BabyAge.com has (by far) the best price for this seat. We received it only three days after placing our order, and have been extremely pleased so far. It was easy to adjust for our daughter, and ridiculously simple to install in the car using the RF LATCH setup. Even though it has no top tether option when RF, as the Combi does, it feels just as secure in the car. The seat is very well padded for comfort and support, and the fabric is plush. My daughter looks very cozy in it (even when sleeping, the side impact head supports and the cushy strap pads keep her head from slumping).

The only negative I will give it (and this is just an opinion as I have no personal experience with it) is that although it is rated for infants 5-35lb RF, there is no way I could see this seat being suitable for a newborn. I do not think the head supports or the harness straps will go low enough, and I do not think there is a sufficient tilt to keep them from being all hunched over. My daughter is 8 months old, and this seat is perfect now, and I can see it growing well with her. I would not recommend this as a first-buy seat for someone with a newborn...get an infant seat first and then switch to this once it is outgrown.
Great Booster By
March 8, 2010
After just 4 days and a 3 hour vehicle ride over the weekend, we decided to order this seat for our younger son, who is ready for a booster seat as well. Our boys zonk out on car rides often, so we appreciate car seats that provide comfort along with safety. The cover is smooth and comfy, and the side impact protection doubles as a nice headrest when sleeping :)
AWESOME PRICE!! QUICK SHIPPING By

This is a great car seat and highly recommended. The seats arrived 2 days after I ordered them. Very friendly customer service! We will be shopping here again!
Better than Britax Boulevard CS By
June 30, 2009
I own both. The one benefit to the Britax Boulevard CS is that the straps seem to get twisted less. Otherwise, the Recaro Signo is much better looking, just as comfortable and has all the same features. I think it's profile is a little bit smaller, so good for tall parents who need to put their seats back. My 10 month old is in the 97% percentile, and she's totally comfortable. Love it!

A nice slim seat perfert for smaller cars (and slimmer babies) By
January 22, 2011
Good - A bit slim and a bit on the tall side, making it great for smaller cars. Good features with a great range in versatility.. Solid build and nice looks.

Bad - Slim design means more snug. Don't have much room on the shoulder and hips. A bit pricey. Hard to find and test out in stores.

Vehicle used with - Honda Accord ('00), Toyota Matrix ('09)

Time used - almost 6 months

Recommend - Yes

Overall - Great product. I'm mainly driving a Matrix and its currently setup in a rear facing position tilted back fully in the middle of the backseat. I can still lean my seat pretty far back without having to adjust the Recaro, about 45 degrees. My son is 1 year old and weighs 21 lbs. He's slim making it perfect for this. My wife usually sits behind there with him and has no problem with space.

It's very easy to adjust the headrest with the knob in the backside, If you have multiple child riding different times. I've used it forward facing with my niece (in a Honda Accord and she's a 3 yrs old, 30 lbs).

So if you think space, ability to tilt back your driver seat, solid build, and ability to grow with your child is a priority to you, then definitely check this out.
