The Nuna Rebl has been tested to the same safety standards which all i-Size car seats sold on the UK market need to meet. The Rebl was found to meet and exceed this R129 standard.
However, there are also separate bodies around the world who investigate child car safety and strive to improve safe travel for children independently of the standardised tests. The German Automobile club, ADAC, are one such body. The ADAC recently put many car seats through their own individual tests, during which the Rebl was deemed to rate poorly. The results of these ADAC independent tests were published in the Which? magazine who issued the car seat with a ‘do not buy' label.
Now if you have a Rebl car seat, we appreciate you may be alarmed but one thing to bear in mind is that the Rebl has met the same required R129 standards that all other i-Size car seats on the market and the ADAC tests are independent to these ratings.
With this in mind, Nuna have not recalled the seat but rather are offering parents the option of a refund against their seat if they decide it is necessary.
In a statement released by Nuna, they confirm: "We value that parents have chosen Nuna for their families, whose safety is our highest priority, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience experienced."
