Recaro

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.
Great Seat By

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.
Worth the peace of mind By

We already own two Recaro car seats, one is the Pro Ride and the other is the Pro Sport. We needed another one for Grammy's car. My husband and I considered getting a different brand, but when we compared the prices and the features we really felt that this particular brand of seat had the peace of mind we really want in a car seat. I googled the safest car seat, and this is the brand I found. I am extremely pleased with this seat and all of the safety features as well as the convenience features. I highly recommend this seat to anyone I know in the market for one.
We love this car seat! By

We bought this car seat in the midnight sky color last month when my son turned one. Ever since my son was born, he has always hated being in the car. As he got older, he didn't cry so much, but still hated his infant seat because he had to rear face and was unable to sit up as a result of the seat recline position. Every time my son is in his Recaro seat, he just loves it! He is very quiet and loves to look around outside. I was afraid the side impact would obstruct his view, but they are no problem at all. He is able to fall asleep right away in this seat and his head does not flop. He just looks so comfy! I read about other people having problems with the bottom cushion moving around, but we have not had that problem at all. It is not fastened down because the seat is made to grow with the baby. But the material is a very soft velvety fabric that keeps the little cushion in place.
This seat is VERY easy to install! I didn't even need to read the book! The latch is so easy to install...it uses the click of a button rather than the hard safety pin like latch on most infant seats. It also is very easy to tighten because it lets you tighten the seat on both sides, not just one.
The seat is a little heavy and quite bulky, but it fits fine in my Xterra and my husbands GMC.
I highly recommmend this seat to anyone that is willing to splurge for their baby. I wanted the best seat I could find that would also grow with him so we could get our money's worth. This one seems to accomidate the child longer, so we picked this one over the Britax.
awesome booster By

This booster seat is the best! Not only does it fit the backseat of my Camaro, it's the most well made booster out there. Rigid and strong, but with thick, comfortable padding. The side impact protection design is great and really does keep my son's head from flopping to the side when he falls asleep. Wish I had found this seat sooner!

My husband decided to buy a Recaro carseat for our daughter because he had a Mitsubishi Evolution and loved how the seats felt. I have to say, it was the best decision he made! Our daughter is protected and comfortable in this carseat. The head support is great when she falls asleep. Her head does not slouch. The seat looks great and feels great. There is a lot of cushion around all of the area. We just ordered another one for my husband's car. We definitely recommend buying a Recaro. Great product!!!
my wife let me pick it out LOVE IT!!! By

I trusted this brand when racing and I trust it to put my little girl in when I'm doing 30mph down the interstate

This product is outstanding. Just what I expected from RECARO. The booklet that tells you how everything works is a little small, but I figured it out. Price is right. Pick up the other seats available, and you will know you made the right choice.
Very pleased By

The only complaint I have is that it's not super easy to get my daughter out of the seat when rear-facing. That may be more the fault of my small car (WRX wagon) than the seat. I haven't tried it in other cars. Otherwise, it seems to be a well-engineered seat with very comfortable fabric and cushioning.
