Rated 5 out of 5 by Tippi781 Absolutely LOVE our Recaro!
We love this seat and think it's just fabulous. We've had the Performance Sport about a year now. The only complaint is that a couple of times the straps pinched my son's skin where the shoulder pads are when tightening them. I know that may happen, so I just ensure he's sitting back and his shirt is between the straps and him around his neckline.
The 5-point harness is so easy to tighten and I seem to get them tightened better than other seats we've had. The latch system is easy to install and uninstall from the car. I've never had a seat that was so easy on either of these points! Transferring the seat back and forth between our cars is a breeze!
I love the white line to indicate that the straps aren't twisted. Totally love the shoulder pads. Not only do they keep the straps from getting twisted, but they stay in place. I don't have to worry about adjusting them. This seat fits perfectly in our car which has bucket backseats, which was a worry for me.
I recommend Recaro and their seats any chance I get. It's a brand I trust and love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by soontobemommyof4 Great Seat!
We borrowed a friends extra Recaro sport seat from her hubbies car as our car was in an accident and we needed another seat short notice. I was pleasantly surprised how well this seat fit into our vehicle, how comfortable it was and that my child actually liked it. (He thought it was cool) I found the seat easy to install despite the weight but I expect a well made seat to have weight to it. So during the few days of using the borrowed seat I decided our new seat would be a Recaro Performance sport!
Our oldest has out grown the seat height wise and thinking we were done with having more kids, I donated it to my sister as it had tons of life left to give. Well lets just say we will be needing another seat soon! Not sure if I want to try a full denali travel system or just go straight to a birth to convertible combination seat option. But either decision I know will be the right decision! #TeamRecaro!

After years of sticking with Britax for all of my 4 children's car seats, I'm happy that we recently decided to try out Recaro. It was time for my smallest child to switch to a booster seat but we wanted her to still have the five point harness chest clip, so after much research and various times of trying out different seats we chose the performance sport. It had all the features we were looking for, feels way sturdier than Britax and we think our little girl is in a safer seat. The price is not bad either. She loves the purple color she chose and likes the fact that she can buckle herself in like a big girl now. It's an awesome looking seat also. It's reassuring and pretty neat to know that we have a car seat made from the same people that make racing car seats! We love it so far and look forward to many years of enjoyment, comfortability and safety with our Recaro.

As many of you have read in other reviews, this seat is awesome. We have 2 and love them. We would never consider anything else. I wanted to post because I recently took my seat on the plane. I wasn't sure how it would work, but it was fantastic. Three out of four planes I traveled in, I was able to carry the seat no problem to the row we were in. One of the planes (MD-90) had very narrow aisles (even in First Class), so it was a little more challenging. However, the seat fit great in all four planes (seat widths on the planes were 17.1" and 18.2") even though the Recaro is noted to have a width of @19". My son was happy to have his seat and I felt comfortable knowing that if there was turbulence or other minor plane issues, my son would remain safe during flight, take-off, and landing. NOTE: I used a stroller cart that is designed to use the latch system as a transport through security and at plane transfers. The seat is a little heavy to carry through the airport on its own.

I actually purchased two of these seats, one for each of my daughters. These seats are incredibly comfortable for them! We've made quite a few road trips with no complaints (one from Alaska to New York with a stop in Texas). I love how long kids are able to use these seats! My oldest child has been harnessed in one since she was 4 and is still able to harness at almost 10. We were unfortunately in an accident that caused around $7,000 worth of damage to my vehicle. There wasn't a scratch on my daughter! We love Recaro seats and will continue to buy them for the rest of our children!

My husband is a car racing fanatic !! So when it was time for us to choose a child car seat for our 2 year old , recaro we went !! The time, research and love you out into making your racing features is what made us choose recaro for the safety of our child in our car . We know our child will be protected if we were ever in an accident and that's such a peace of mind . She loves her seat and so do we ! Easy to install, easy to remove the cover to clean, easy to adjust height of the shoulder straps plus they don't twist (yay!) and the overall time you put into stitching the cover so they don't fray , tear or loosen !! Plus it's very comfortable for our daughter while protecting her ! Recaro car seats are the best !! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seaborn The best child seats available
We love Recaros! We have two! My husband knows all about racing seats and when it came time to buy a car seat for our first child he said Recaro offered the best. We have loved it and just bought our second Recaro for our second child bc number three is on the way. We needed to fit three seats in our Acura MDX and bc of the size if the Recaro we were able to fit our infant seat and two Recaro Performance Sport car seats. I love the protection it provides, the HERO harness system has perfect shoulder pads protection and we've never had a problem with twisting straps. We will definitely buy from Recaro again!

At first I wasn't sure about this company until my husband wouldn't let it go. After doing my own research I realized he was right, this is a must have brand. Our now 5 yr old has this exact model and we LOVE it. Not only has he been in it since forward facing but I can also fit into it. I'm the height requirement for the min legal size to no longer sit in a car seat/booster. This car seat gives me the comfort in knowing my child will be safe till he outgrows the need for it. If you have a taller child this is the seat for you, and the added max weight for harness use also sold me on it.
