Love Diono carseats!
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2021
I am very familiar with Diono carseats as this is my third purchase. My first suggestion is when you get the carseat, to sit down and read the manual. I read a review for this carseat that said their baby was uncomfortable with the headrest down, but the manual specifically says to keep the headrest up for babies. I had no problems installing this carseat rear-facing. In fact, I thought it was easier with the new latch design. It also does not lean as far back as the 3rxt, so in my opinion, the adjuster is optional if in the middle seat. I have a subsaru outback for reference. Obviously, anyone buying this carseat has done their research and knows how hefty it is. IT'S MADE OF METAL. Why would anyone buy this carseat to take on airplanes lol Buy it to stay in your car! It does fold up super easy if you do need to travel and it's a long velcro strap that keeps it in place. Do snacks get all in the crevices of this carseat? Yes! Does my one year old like to pull the fabric off the headrest? Yes! But he is comfortable and the piece of mind I get from the quality and safety of Diono carseats far outweigh either of those things.
