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.Read more ›
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.
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".
