I hate our radian xtsl, there is just so much that is wrong with it, rf boot that isn't attached, safe stop that blah blah blah, harness that I can't physically adjust when ff, straps that cut into ds neck, head wings that fall down & it's a beast & difficult to install!

I don't like any Australian seat, they are light weight, flimsy barely rear face & are expensive to boot.

I also don't like the Multi Tech :duck: it is also a beast & ds never found it to be very comfortable.

Classic MA/RA50 :duck:

My kid never fit right in it. I know its a good seat, just wasn't a good seat for me.

I hate the Cocorro. I bought it sight unseen because everyone raved about it on here, well, it was returned to diapers.com within days. Within an hour we had a snag on teh cover and I hated the puzzle buckle.

Get a new Diono radian ;)
The new Radians have a smooth adjuster? I have 2 80SLs and I cannot stand the ratcheting adjusting. Ugh. I need to do a 3 across in the Fall, so maybe a RN with a smooth adjuster will make the whole thing more bearable.

It was in the instructions for removing the cover if I remember right. It was 5 years ago. I think it was an evenflo and I'm sure I was looking at the manual but I may be remembering wrong. Actually, I know it was right because it was the evenflo before they made it a no rethread. That was the only way to change the harness height.
ETA: here it is. https://plweb.evenflo.com/ShowDocument.aspx?ManualID=520 I guess the harness adjustment was different, but page 20, instructions for removing seat pad includes removing 8 screws. Not good with a dd that gets carsick a lot.
That was my first seat for my oldest. The first time I changed the harness I removed all the screws too, but then I realized it was totally unnecessary and the harness could be moved up/down by accessing the harness from the front of the seat and just undoing the Velcro on the seat cover. ;) I loved that old seat and really liked the knobs on the sides.

I have a love/hate for our new Boulevard... The velcro things to hold them are way too low to be useful.. I love the seat but the hard plastic/rubber things where the chest clip is are so freaking annoying and it always seems like I have to loosen it all up to get it on right and then tighten it and of course at 13 months DD is livid.

I also hate the Evenflo Tribute Sport RF.. its fine in FF mode but RF in my car and the few others I've tried it in STINKSSSS.

Did not care for our EFTA but really hated the radians I had- sold one and crashed the other:D
I did like them for three across in our ford edge but when we got the bigger car with a third row- they had to go!
