    Default FYI: Recaro no longer selling car seats in the US market

    I need to replace DD1's Recaro Performance Sport HBB but I have been unable to find it anywhere. I called Recaro and they told me they are no longer producing car seats for the US market. FYI.

    Oh wow, I wonder why that it. We have a Performance Sport too (I think that's the one...it's their seat that can be used as a 5 pt or a HBB) and I love it! I'm glad it has several years till expiration!

    .... so I googled it and Baby Bargains came up as the first hit for the reason they stopped selling!

    http://www.babybargains.com/breaking...ller-business/

    Basically, they had a big battle over a recall issue in the US and their brand took a big hit and it wasn't worth it anymore to sell there.

    Yeah, they discontinued the performance booster a while back, which really sucks since it's one of the few that works in my third row
    DS1 - 8/08 - ff'ing in a frontier 85 & frontier 90
    DS2 - 5/10 - ff'ing in a radian XTSL
    DD - 5/12 - rf'ing in a peg perego convertible & radian XTSL

    Too many strollers to list!

    Any idea when that was posted? I didn't see a date. Actually I didn't realize there was a recall! I need to go check my seats. Yikes!

    Aww thanks - we actually just finally traded in the mazda5 for an odyssey on Saturday so my 9 yo can finally get out of the high back since it's actually car seat friendly. Appreciate the offer though!
