When most people shop for a car, they may be aware of the brand of tires or the kind of stereo, but few people think about who manufactured the seats. One exception to that is Recaro. The German company has long made seats for carmakers like Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, as well as for the aftermarket. In the late '70s, Recaros became very popular with the introduction of their multi-articulated seats.
More recently, Recaro has applied some of its expertise to the world of child safety seats. They offer a line of products ranging from rear-facing infant seats to boosters for older children. Styled in the fashion of their full-sized driver seats with adjustable bolsters and removable liners, the child seats' can be tweaked to keep your kids safe and secure as they grow. They aren't cheap, but they are Recaros.

      Not to knock these but Recaro made the last three "spam in a can" airline seats I sat in. Sitting there in the insanely cramped seat, it was not a lot of consolation to think it was a cramped Recaro seat.

      I've been using the Recaro Young Sport for several months for my kids. Very solidly made (aside from the belt clip) and wonderfully designed seats.

      One of this seats saved the life of my then 5 year old son when the car he sat in crashed in to a tree (doing 55 mph). The people who cut up the wreck and took him out could not belive that he survived such a heavy blow with just one broken arm.
      They know what they are doing, the people at Recaro...

      On one of the Lamborghini runs I went to, some guy in a blue Lamborghini roadster had this or similar to this in his front seat with his son in it. I think it was the highlight of the Lamborghini meet.

        I bought this Recaro car seat at www.baby-wise.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=119 . It has been excellent so far, although I haven't been in any accidents, and hope never to be in one I feel secure knowing that I have a recaro seat. It was kind of pricey, but I would rather pay an extra $100 on the chance that it may save my baby's life.

      Compare it to the Britax and you will buy the Recaro. The Britax are made of plastic comapre to the metal of the Recaro.
