Re: Radian RXT in the 3rd row of a 2009 T&C

Radians make crappy boosters. They have a 50 pound minimum, and are usually outgrown as a booster the same time they are outgrown as a harness, and for many kids this is long before they hit 50 pounds. They are kinda wide, and the belt rides up on some kids tummies.

Unless you want to re-rearface your 4 year old, I wouldn't buy a Radian. I hate mine. They are a PITA to install, super heavy (weigh a ton more than Britax) and I hate that you have to have the RF boot on to use it RF.

I would never buy one unless I specifically needed it. We had to get them for DH's car to get 3 across, and curse them every time we are moving them.

For your 4 year old, I'd get a Frontier or a ProSport any day of the week over a Radian.
