I like it because it's very well made and safe for him.
Buckeyes
Anyone who's owned or been in one of these cars knows how small the back bucket seats are, and this booster fit perfectly.
Mike
Not a bit of tipping, and just to test it out, I actually did do some hard turns with my son in it, just to test it. ;)

This booster is easy to use and our 5 year old says it is super comfortable. We also have the Parkway (Britax). The Recaro construction is way solider and the fabric is much nicer and more durable. This seat and our last Recaro have converted me from a Britax mommy to a Recaro mommy. If you want a real comparison of the two brands, take the covers off. You'll be shocked by the quality difference based on being the same price.

An excellent booster except for the fact that the designers were pretty short sided.

I'm going to be as fair and as objective as possible with this review so other parents know exactly what they are getting before they decide to purchase this booster or not.

This is honestly an excellent car seat with very high ratings from the insurance institute of traffic safety, so why did we send it back? And would not recommend it to most people?

The reason is simple - design. Not that it's a bad design, it's actually very very good IF you are in the market niche that Recaro targets with their products and marketing.

Here's what I mean. Recaro makes the very best car chairs for high end sports cars and race cars. They have a very high profile brand in their industry with automotive enthusiasts.

Having said that, Recaro has created and excellent car seat for THAT market.

By this I mean, that typically cars/vans/trucks/suv's etc are made with back seats that are either: bucket seats, bench seats, or flat seats.

Sports cars have bucket seats.

You have to understand this point upfront before you decide on this car seat for your child. Because if your car doesn't have BUCKET seats in back - you need to PASS on buying this booster.

Here's the problem. The base of the Recaro booster seat is narrower then the seating surface of the booster.

As a result, this causes the entire booster to TILT and LEAN left of or right whenever the car is making a turn, and your child will be tossed from side to side ANYTIME you make a turn. This is not acceptable is unsafe!

The addition of LATCH straps would help to stabilize the booster in this case, but sadly the Recaro has none.

Excellent product, Comfortable seat. The only negative point is there is no LATCH to keep it secured to the back seat of the car.

The only problem we are having with using a booster is getting used to using the car seat belt instead of a 5 point harness.

We used a Recaro ProSeries 5 point harness car seat which utilized the LATCH system and have now grown into the ProBooster, which does NOT use the LATCH system.

A few things I would like to address:

i) No, the booster does not tip. It's IMPOSSIBLE for it to tip, so I don't know what this complaint is about, but I find it highly dubious, and that's my opinion on that.

ii) No, the ProBooster does NOT use the LATCH system because it is NOT a 5 point harness system. The ProBooster uses the vehicle's 3 point seat belt and can NOT be used without a 3 point seat belt.

Don't buy this if you want your child to remain in a 5 point harness restraint, using the vehicle's LATCH system.

Only buy this if your child is ready to wear the vehicle's 3 point seat belt to secure himself and the booster seat.

This booster (and any booster using the vehicle's seat belt) SHOULD NOT be used with a LATCH system. Using LATCH with this seat would be downright dangerous!

I bought this specifically for a 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet (the new 991 body style). All other booster seats were far too wide to fit in the narrow rear seat. Not only does it fit perfectly, but it looks great! My four year old fits perfectly and claims to be comfortable in it. Would recommend to any Porsche 911 owner looking to fit their little ones in the back.

I recently purchased a Porsche Carrera 911 (991) and was looking for car seats for my 5 and 3 year-old sons. The 911 has VERY narrow bucket seats and I didn't think I was going to find anything that would fit, plus I didn't want to buy the marked up Porsche brand if possible. One of the earliest reviews (thank you!) said that this seat fit his 911 (997) and so I ordered two in red.... and they fit perfectly. As if they were made for the 911!!! Also, in case anybody was wondering, this seat will also fit in the front seat of a Cayman or Boxster. I also got the seats in red (Blaze) to match my red seat belts -- looks HOT. And, I LOVE how you can see RECARO peeking out of the windows!! Yes, Mommy is a racing/sports car enthusiast!

All the bad reviews below have to do with the car seat being too narrow -- the reason probably being, this seat was made for sports cars. As a reviewer pointed out below, this seat will work better in a bucket seat rather than a flat seat in the back.

NO LATCH SYSTEM WOULD BE THE PROBLEM.

I am currently in the market for a booster for my two children. We have the Recaro Convertibles and LOVE THEM. So it just followed that we would purchase the same brand for their Booster seats. My husband ordered the product, which we intend to send back to another company. I did some digging in the reviews on Amazon and the no latch system appears to be a consistent complaint. I located a review from December 2012, noting that company was planning to release the ProBooster in March 2013. Knowing how ship dates tend to slip I emailed the company on February 15, 2012 to get an update on the ship date. Here is a copy of the email thread:

MY EMAIL TO RECARO #1: To whom it may concern, Hoping you can answer a question about the ProBooster seats. Do they have a latch system? The reviews on Amazon indicate that the ProBoosters do not have latches. But buried in the review threads it says that you plan to ship the seats with latches starting March 2013. Can you confirm that this is true and when the actual ship/in market date is?

RECARO RESPONSE #1: The ProBooster car seats do not have a latch system. We will be releasing a car seat called Performance Booster that will include a latch system. Unfortunately, we do not have an exact date of when the Performance Booster will be released as of yet.

MY EMAIL TO RECARO #2: Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I understand that you don't have an exact ship date for the Performance Booster but wondering if you think it will make it to market in 2013? Mid or late season? Wondering because I would like to hold out to purchase this model if possible.

RECARO RESPONSE #2: Yes, it will be released in 2013, unfortunately we do not have if it will be mid or late season as of yet.

I hope you find this information helpful.
