Recaro

GREAT! By
June 27, 2009
This is the second Recaro Signo we've purchased. Our 2-year old is in one and this one was for our 3-month old. Keeps our kids safe and comfy and in a 5-point as long as possible!

Got this one in a great deal from BabyAge - doesn't get any better. :)

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.
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.
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.

This is a sturdy and well built booster. The yellow green coloring is on the bright side and some may consider it unappealing to the eye ;) For the cost of a Recaro, can't beat it. It just wish the arms would lift up
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.

After originally being concerned about the price of this car seat while doing my reasearch, I decided on the Recaro Signo...I told my husband, thinking that he would have a problem paying that much, I was prepared to stand my ground...safety is #1, however I was pleasantly surprised when he responded with a, "hell yes"! What I didn't realize was that Recaro makes race seats. What guy wouldn't want his little boy riding in a seat designed and made by the same people who design race seats? If people in the racing world trust Recaro seats to protect their drivers, I can definitely put my trust in them to protect my little boy. When you order a Recaro, you know you're getting the best in safety.

We received our order on time and couldn't wait to install it. Originally we thought that we would put it on the passenger side of our rear seats so we could see him (we have captain chairs in our SUV) but the car seat is so large that it makes seeing out that window next to impossible and makes the already bad blind spots, worse. So behind the drivers seat is where it's installed. Also, we had to put a towel under the seat to make it level, but it states in the installation instructions that you MAY need to use a towel or a pool noodle.

Our lil Man LOVES his new seat! He still is rear facing because he's not 30lbs yet, but he was too long for his infant seat. He'll have much more room when we turn it forward facing once he's a year old and 30lbs. There is no mirror out there (that I've found) that will allow you to see your child while it's rear facing in this seat, but his coos and giggles let me know he's ok and happy. Once the seat gets turned around, seeing him won't be a problem.

Our Recaro Signo was manufactured during the time of the recall, however I checked the Recaro website and followed the instructions on how/where to check out our seat, it's perfectly fine...no defects to be found.

Overall AWESOME product so far.

PS - Thank you BabyAge.com for the great discount on this seat!

I purchased the red & black seat. It's very well made, and the colors are great. The side impact head rests provide great support when the child is sleeping, as well as providing accident protection. It's very light weight. and easy to install. I recommend this booster seat!
