Rated 5 out of 5 by ToriN Great infant seat!
We have been using this seat for the last 6 months and have been extremely satisfied with the quality and performance. I like how deep my son is nestled into the seat which shows how well it would protect him in a side impact crash. The base is very easy to install and it releases easily from the base and into the Denali stroller. We have at this point remove the extra padding meant for a newborn and I expect him to still fit in the seat for a few more months. I like that the handle is used as a rebound bar as well. There are only a few downsides with this seat: the flip out leg on the base always collapses when I add pressure to tighten the strap. We've used the micro adjust wheel to extend the height of the base and that has worked great. The shoulder pads are quite bulky and my son fusses and looks uncomfortable since they push up on his cheeks. All in all I've been extremely happy with this seat and can tell how well the construction is compared to friends infant seats such as the Eddie Bauer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vanessa_ygarcia The Ideal Infant Car Seat
From before we were expecting our baby, we knew we'd go with RECARO products! We loved this item due to its great quality and design. The seat was easy to clip our baby into with its 5-pt harness, we also were able to lower the strap levels for our small (7 lb.) baby and tighten up the straps for a secure snuggly fit and adjusting as he got older. The knob on the front of the base made it easy for us to adjust the seat for a leveled fit (with the bubble level indicator) and properly install and secure the base with the LATCH feature. The base and seat itself was easy to switch from car to car and to attach to the Denali stroller when needed. This seat was obviously extremely convenient for us.. and most importantly, it gave us a HAPPY baby... My baby is just now growing out of his seat after 1 yr 3 mths :-) After loads of compliments, it's time for a new one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by graychel High Quality, Excellent Customer Service
We've used this seat for the last year. Overall, I am impressed. It is made of high quality materials and durable, easy-to-clean fabrics. One look at my infant in this seat gave me peace of mind, because her head was protected to the sides and the 5-point harness fit snugly in all of the right places.
The one problem we ran into had to do with the strap to tighten the harness. This is why I give this seat 4 stars instead of 5. the strap got stuck underneath the seat two separate times. Both times I was unable to unlatch the seat from the base. Both times customer service sent me a new seat and a prepaid return label to send the stuck seat back to them. I was very impressed at how quickly they responded and how seriously they took the issue. It was inconvenient to have to wait those few days without being able to unlatch the seat out of the base, especially when my infant was only a couple of months old. With that said, I am extremely pleased with this infant seat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EandLsmom Gets stuck
I am a huge huge fan of recaro seats, with our first we got a convertible and now a convertible booster, when we found out we we're expecting number 2, one of our first buys was our infant coupe, got it thought I was going to love it, many months later baby #2 arrived and came home from the hospital in our recaro, and it was problems from there on out, with the seat getting stuck in all (3) of the additional bases we got. It creaked and made noise while carrying it, sounded like cheap plastic. Needless to say we got so frustrated that we went out and got a britax 35 elite and absolutely love it, I wouldn't recommend this infant seat to any of my expecting mom or dads. We will continue to purchess convertable and boosters from you but I'm very disappointed in this infant seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommabear LOVE RECARO!
We bought this car seat for our first child and LOVE IT! Makes us feel great about having her in it. So safe. I had a problem with the locking system and I called customer service and they had no problem with replacing the car seat& base with no charge to us. We now need a bigger car seat and are going with Recaro again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomOfSix In love with this seat!
I am a Mom of six children. I am also a Paramedic. I know how much safety is important to all parents. I have seen some horrible accidents with some good and bad outcomes. This infant seat held up tremendously in a accident that I responded to. The baby was not injured in the accident. A large part was due to the car seat the baby was traveling in. The parents also took great care in having the car seat installed properly. As a Paramedic and a Mom I was very impressed by how the car seat held up.

I bought my Infant Coupe last fall to use with my 4th child. The Coupe is super easy to install, both with and with our the base. Plus, it's extremely easy to use the lap belt instead of the LATCH system.
My son was almost 9 lbs at birth, and he was able to use the Coupe until June—so almost a full year, where he would have outgrown many popular brand infant seats much sooner.
