    Recaro ProBooster Questions /Moved from RECARO ProRide and RECARO ProBooster Seats now available!

    hi all! i'm new to this forum but am in the market for a booster seat. Was about to purchase recaro vivo until i heard that recaro just came out with the probooster. i know that the vivo has good ratings from iihs but since the probooster is so new, i don't think they have had a chance to test it. and in my experience, just because they make one good product doesn't mean all their products would be equivalent. i want the latest and greatest for my ds but not at sacrificing safety. does anyone know if there's any safety reviews published yet. thanks in advance!

    I don't know of a group that does safety reviews. It looks like the probooster will fit well, which is what really matters.

    How old is DS?

    DS is using both the Vivo and ProBooster. Both provide excellent fit for him. He's 6 yrs, 55 lbs, 47". Some folks have reported issues with the ProBooster being tippy in their vehicle, but we haven't had that problem in any of the vehicles we've used it in.
