First of all, after a thorough searching you realize that the most important features should be considered in your decision are:
1) Baby's Safety: 5-point harness, side head supports, side body supports
2) Baby's Comfort: body and head room, cushion material, seating position, neck pads, easy locking/unlocking of belts
3) easy of installation: LATCH system, good guidebook
4) Adjustability: Height, harness level, tightening of belts
5) Convertibility: car seat <-> booster seat
6) Material quality: Cloths, plastics, belts, cushions, locks
7) Price

I bought this car seat a month ago so bear in mind that my experience with the longterm outcomes is limited. I have a 2 1/2 year old kid who is in the upper limit of a normal weight and height range for her age. I bought this car seat online and picked it up from fedex. It took me 5 minute to install it in my car which was easy and fun with LATCH system. Its head side supports are the most important feature of this seat and they really serve their purpose. When my kid wear her jacket and hat, room for her head becomes a bit tight but it is still comfortable and actually it is helpful when she falls asleep. 5-point harness is a great feature and I highly recommend to buy a seat with harness if your kid is under 4 years old. I will try to use the harness as long as I can. I have not used this seat as a booster yet but it seam it will be ok because the slots for car seat belts are well positioned. Its head support and harness level can be adjusted and easily but you have to do it before installing the seat because the releasing button is in the behind and unreachable when seat is tightly pressed to rear seats. you can tighten belts in the front and it is quick and easy.

I have had this product for over an year now and could not be happier. The seat back adjusts as your child grows taller. Looks very safe. This seat fits in all of our 3 cars without any trouble. I have had a great deal of difficulty in installing our Britax Marathon forward facing in our cars that meet the 2009 headrest standards. The top of the Marathon digs into the forward angled car headrest, leaving a huge gap between the back of the baby seat and the car seat, with all of the weight and tension resting on the headrest alone. No problem for the Recaro though. Bottom line, it is very easy to install securely. The Britax, while rated safe, in unacceptable in our newer cars with the 2009 standard forward angled, non-removeable headrests. My daugter also likes the Recaro more than any of our other car seats.

Also, for those that like to fly with a car seat, like we do, the Recaro is a perfect fit for an airline seat. The Britax is just too large, and will not be allowed on board, as the front edge of the car seat must be flush with the front on the airplane seat.

In response to the other review....

Federal law and Recaro required your child to be AT LEAST 1 year old for the forward facing Recaro Young Sport (along w/ weighing at least 18lbs and has reached a height of at least 27 inches).

Recaro even states in their advertisements that there is a "minor adjustment" for the sleep position, and as I stated in my review of these seats, our 1yr old daughter's head does not flop forward at all while sleeping in this seat.

Versitility is better than any other seat on the market actually. While in "harness mode" the child can go up to 40lbs and 40" in height, then in the "booster mode" up to 80lbs and 59".

Excellent chair! This is a very sturdy seat. I use the LATCH system in an Xterra and it doesn't budge. I thought visibility would be a problem but I would estimate the baby gets 135 or so degrees of forward view. We can take longer trips without the baby squawking in discomfort. It is molded from a heavy plastic(?) and it doesn't twist or tweek. I'm confident it'll survive a severe collision or rollover. If you're major concern is safety, you can't go wrong with a RECARO.

I never thought I'd be saying that after having a Roundabout for 3 years, but after my little girl had outgrown her favorite seat, a new search had begun. She is petite but at that difficult in-between stage...she just fits in a Britax highback booster but at 32 pounds, not safely enough for our peace of mind. Then she's too big for the Marathon. So, 1 returned car seat later (the Eddie Bauer Summit which slid around in our van's latchless captains chairs like a hockey puck on ice)we started looking at the Decathalon, the Boulevard and the Recaro Young Sport. Other reviewers are right--my little girl complained immediately that the Boulevard's center crotch buckle piece was hurting her and the Decathalon didn't leave her much height to grow. As soon as we put her in the Recaro, she said "I want this one! I love it!" The seat depth was perfect, and the padded buckle was soft. Some adjustable height boosters have padding that pushes the kids' upper back forward and cause them to slouch forward but Recaro's seat back padding is thick and flat. After one try of installing it by myself, it was in tight and wouldn't budge! The shoulder strap actually crosses the frame of the seat and holds it in tight. The side impact molding is surprisingly hard and sturdy and I feel so secure knowing that her head and body are protected. I am so glad we can keep her in a harness till she gains more weight. I would recommend this seat to anyone whose child is in that transition stage! The store told us to keep the tags on in case we wanted to return it but my little girl said to me.."mommy lets take those tags off--I never want to return this seat!"
