2008 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

The latch belt of my radian xtsl is consistently loosening itself. It does not stay tight. The adjuster sits on the edge of the seat when installed rear facing in my '08 Odyssey, and the weight of my 34 pound daughter getting in and out of the seat causes the harness to loosen. I tightened it yesterday, and today, there was considerable slack in the belt. (related vehicle information: Model year=2008, make=Honda, model=Odyssey).

This is for a sunshine kids radian xtsl car seat. I am very capable of installing car seats correctly so I know that the car seat was installed per the manufacturers instructions. The car seat was installed rear facing with latch with less than 1/2" of movement. It had been properly installed and tight for over a month. On this day when I went to buckle my child in I noticed that the latch strap had loosened considerably to the point where the car seat was leaning to one side and could move freely at the belt path. I re-tightened the latch strap and it again felt tight. This is the 3rd time this has happened to me with this car seat in my car.

The tether strap of my true fit premier (model C670-bar, dom 2/23/09) has bent, and you cannot bend it back. Here is a photo of the bent tether hook.¤t=dsc_0255.jpg (related vehicle information: Model year=2008, make=Honda, model=Odyssey).

In my sunshine kids radian xtsl, when I install the seat rear facing with superlatch, the edge of the belt adjuster hits the side of the belt path. If you slide the seat side to side to check the install, it loosens the latch belt. The latch belt is also right were my daughter puts her feet, and twice, she has loosened the belt with her foot.

We have three dorel/safety 1st alpha omega convertible car seats (22469-bse). After trying numerous times to secure two of the seats in a rear facing position, my husband and I had to use the anchor strap to keep the seats secure. According to the book that comes with the seats, the anchor is not to be used in the rear facing position. The local fire department is certified in car seat installation. The fireman pointed out to us that the latch belt on the two seats will not stay tight. After the latches were secure and we tightened the straps, the firemen were checking to make sure the seats were secure and the belt would loosen with the slightest pressure on the seats. Therefore, these seats cannot be installed properly and are dangerous for my children to ride in as is. I contacted dorel this morning, and all they could offer was a new latch belt for the seats with problems. I was told it would take ten business days for me to receive the new latch belts. When I asked the representative what I should do in the mean time, I was told to just use the seat belts in the vehicle to secure the car seats. My question to dorel and to you is why would I want to just use the seat belt when the seat is not secure and should be used with a latch system.
