Re: who has a radian??

We have two radians and a frontier (three cars). I LOVE the frontier (my son is 4 and FF at this point). Dh LOVES the radians. We have had no problem installing them in any of our cars. We even travel with them. They are heavy but we love them. They can be tricky to install in some cars but my son is JUMBO sized (born at 11 lbs 7 oz, and 35 lbs at 18 months old) so we had no real other choices out there.

ETA: just so folks don't think I have some super fat kiddo, my son is very proportionate. He's always been in the 97% for height too. So tall and hefty. That means we need big seats.

We LOVE ours, easy instal ( harder in smaller vehicles for rfing infants because of angle and room from front seat) I cannot say anything bad about the seat, its heavy but we dont take it in and out very often so its not a big deal. DS is very comfy in it and has never complained about being uncomfortable.

Re: who has a radian??

Love ours. My only complaint is the stupid wings on the xtsl don't stay up, that gets frustrating. We also don't have any problems getting a good install.

We have three 80SL and love them, the install isn't always the easiest but once it's in, they are nice and secure. My kids think they're comfortable and I love that they are narrow.

Re: who has a radian??

I have 5! and 1 nautilus. Obviously I LOVE mine. We have 3 kids and 2 cars. I have 3 radians in DH's 2 door cavalier and I have 2 RF radians and then the Nautilus in my ford taurus. I love them because I get a rock solid install in both cars, I can fit them in the cavalier (barely but they fit), I REALLY like the low profile of the sides of the seat, I don't have to lift anyone up and over (a huge complaint I have with many other seats but especially the true fit). Anyways, I love everything except how the straps tighten (not one smooth motion)

Re: who has a radian??

LOVE! WE have 2 easy to install, never had an issue with them loosening. The ratchet to tighten the harness was interesting at first then we learned it was a pull release pull release thing and now it is fine. I have an 80 and an xtsl and never had a problem with the head wings

My only complaint for our Radian is the recline. I wish it reclined a bit more FF and didn't recline quite as much RF.

We have 2, and I guess I love them...they last my peanuts of children a really long time. I do really love that they have a low profile and lots of legroom. We have installed them with no issue into a 2000 suburban with a seatbelt and now our 2009 Kia van with LATCH and have never had issues of it loosening.
