Recaro

Great car seat, rock solid install By
June 28, 2009
We absolutly love this car seat. It fits in rock solid in our Subaru Forester (which are known for being tough to find a good fit). The seat is very well made, super comfortable, with great SIP. BabyAge shipping was super quick. We really couldn't ask for more!
great seat!! By

This is a great seat! I feel like my daughter is totally protected in it. I bought 2 seats in 2 different fabrics. I gave only 4 stars because the fabric on the green/tan/brown seat grabs the denim fabric from my daughters jeans and creates blue fuzzballs on the green part of the seat.. If I had to buy them again, I would have bought 2 of the solid gray ones. That gray fabric is so soft and it wears very well.
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!

OK, Dad likes to drive on a race track, so the Recaro name goes a long way with me. I was not disappointed. This seat is built like a tank. I think the baby is the most protected person in the car - and that's great. It was a toss up between this seat and the Britax, both are highly rated. My car sickness pushed me to the Recaro and I am happy. I saw the Britax in Babys R Us and think that the Recaro is a much better seat. It even fits my little 20 year old BMW (Recaro made the front seats in that one!). The LATCH system is great in my wife's newer car - better than the Chicco infant seat base, and the lap belt system works great in Dad's old car. The only down sides are that the seat is quite heavy and it is sooo padded that the little meatball can get hot.
Wonderful Car Seat! By
July 6, 2009
I did a lot of back and forth between this seat and the Britax. I love this seat, but not as much as my daughter! She's 6-months and I'm using the seat for any longer rides so she's more comfortable. It is a bigger seat though, and it's a little challenging to get her in and out of the car (rear-facing installation). I installed the seat behind the driver seat so seeing out the sides and back aren't a problem. I feel very confident that she's safe though! The last thing I would say is I thought this would be the last seat I would need to get for her, but it's only suggested to be used for 6 years from the date of manufacture. (Of course, by then she'll only need a little booster anyway.) Aside from those small things, it is absolutely wonderful!
Love it!!!! Greatest car seat ever!!!! By

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!!!
The name says it all By

This is the second Recaro we bought... for the second car. Although it sits a bit higher than some of the others, the comfort and safety (not too mention peace of mind) is bar none, the best. Even the fact that our two-year old sits a bit higher, he is all the better for it, he can keep an eye on the road and learn as he goes. I highly recommend it: easy to install and made by race car seat experts (safety being top priority). The only draw back... cleaning the materials thoroughly means taking things apart. If you are not as thorough as I am, you can easily clean the surface material -- I just like making sure I get it all clean, including behind the covers. Good luck...
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.
Recaro Signo By
June 28, 2009
Purchased the Recaro Signo child seat to replace my 8 month old old Baby Trend child seat....Man what a difference! My son does not cry like he used to. He goes right into the chair with no problems or hassle. We can secure him with out tinkering with the restraint system...the best part is seeing my son being compfortable in his chair, and as a parents having peace of mind. He sits a little higher up, and he is able to see out the car window and he enjoys it.....this safety seat is a great purchase, and we are glad to have purchsed it...I recommend the seat to anyone
fantastic seat By
August 15, 2009
I have three children and this was purchased for my littlest. She is a large 5 month old who outgrew the infant seat. She is so safe and comfortable in this seat. It looks large when you take it out of the box however it fits great in the back seat of my mid-size SUV with two booster seats on either side. I have never felt such a high quality seat material and my little one loves to ride in it. The infant headrest adjusts easier to fit her and she is safe and secure. I wish they made these 7 years ago when I had my first daughter.
