Thanks! We have the RXT for our older child, but my younger one is approaching the age/size to move out of the bucket. From reading online the biggest differences between RXT and R100 are the lower weight limits for R100 booster mode (120lbs vs 100lbs) and rear-facing (45lbs vs 40lbs), head-wings, and cupholders. Of those, the rear-facing weight limit probably is the biggest drawback, but my kids are taller than the average, so they'll probably be uncomfortable in the rear-facing orientation long before they get to 40lbs.

This is tempting.

Thanks for the quick comparison. The RXT is only a measly 15% off. Contemplating going with the R100 vs. waiting it out for a better deal on the RXT. Won't need it until June...decisions decisions

We have two R100s and are very happy with them. We'll likely be picking up a third. Never tried the RXT, but we did have a Chicco NextFit that we didn't like as much

The remedy for the recall is just a simple replacement to the chest clip...no big deal

No cupholders included, but you can add it on separately (there are slots for them, just not included).

It's a convertible, so it'll do rear-facing, forward-facing, and booster.

Diono's claim to fame was always their ability to three-across, while that is true we're really talking about a 2.5-3 inch saving per seat at most. For how hard these seats feel to me, I struggle to justify it when a 4Ever can be found for under $170 as can the NextFit and some of the Britax seats. It isn't that I think this seat is inherently "bad," I just think you better be damn sure you're going to three-across.

Even the travel claims are debatable. There's a $60 seat from Walmart which is perfect for travel and weighs a lot less. I wouldn't use it as my "main" seat but for holidays it is incredible.

I've never experienced these in-person, but you're saying that the lack of butt padding (for lack of better term) is an issue? I need something that will be comfortable for 6+ hour stretches. So far, Britax is at the top my list.

This is a good price but the fabric looks cheap when comparing to the non-discounted ones. Wonder if they are made of different fabric.

If you have a "Babies R Us" or "buybuy BABY" (Bed Bath and Beyond's version) I'd go feel them in person. Even some Target and Walmart stores have car seats out on display (although they don't stock Diono's as far as I know).

But in general, when we went I found the 4Ever, NextFit, and Britax Marathon to all be fairly comparable. The Britax is the most padded, maybe almost too much if you live in a hot climate. But all of them seemed like they'd be comfortable for long car rides.

The Diono Radian felt hard by comparison, and not just the butt but also back/head area. It seems like it tries to compromise between being a travel and regular seat, but as a consequence does neither particularly well. We got a Cosco Scenera NEXT from Walmart for travel and a 4Ever for our regular seat.

I have no concerns on the Radian's safety, seems very safe, just wish the padding was a little more substantive, particularly when you can get better seats for sub $200 regularly. If you want to do three across though, it might be a "must buy" regardless. Nothing else is 17".

Will this work with Ford Expedition 2017 middle seat? I did some research and everyone says this is the narrow car seat. if I put my Britax in the middle seat, the flip seat to get to the 3rd row seat would be blocked.

Unfortunately I don't know.

Vehicle manufacturers measurements of the second row and the reality are rarely the same. Meaning the official specs will add six or eight inches of space that doesn't exist. Only way to figure it out is to take a tape measure yourself, divide by three, and see if it is more than 17".

These are likely the narrowest car seats on the market though. If these don't fit, nothing will fit.

I was kind of surprised the replacement clip was like 1/3 size of the original one.
