Haha i saw this earlier and was going to post but i couldn't find this model on the maxi cosi website. So I thought it must be an old carseat and carseats expire after a certain date. So no sense buying a carseat that you can't get full use out of it.

The expiration on car seats is for safety regulations, you can still use them, just can't be sold after the expiration date.

Actually they are to be discarded after expiration date due to the fact that they can become dangerous in an actual accident. Most car seats are made of plastic and they breakdown and become brittle over time. Especially when exposed to the temperature fluctuations inside a car. It may look fine but it can fail in an accident. I don't think a child's safety should be put to chance like that.

Great car seat. My daughter is using the 85 max right now, the 85 and 85 max has minor differences.

I get that is what they say, but it is probably due more to changing standards, and to help protect people from a seat that has been in multiple accidents (likelihood that a seat has been in an accident increases greatly over time) then actual breakdown of plastic etc.

Consider Recaro they make car seats and racing seats and seats for auto manufactures and there is plastic in there, that plastic is ok? But the other is not?

What about helmets?

Not trying to be rude but it's not. It's all about safety. Carseats are a one time use item, once they've been in an accident they've served their purpose and should be discarded. Even if there isn't any visible signs of damage there could be damage on the inside. This I know first hand, I've been in an accident where it wasn't too severe and we all walked away and the carseats looked fine on the outside. Once I started to tear down the carseat to discard it I found as few pieces on the inside that were cracked and the foam inside was all cracked as well. As far as Recaro seats they have a steel frame inside with plastic surrounding it as well as foam for the seat. Most carseats dont have a steel frame. And the ones that do have an expiration date twice that of one that doesn't have a steel frame. And I've had Recaro carseat and it's ok. It doesn't perform as well as some other carseats. The model we had was one that was tested and failed in a simulated car crash. It cracked in half and could potentially cause severe injuries to the child. Helmets aren't subject to the same forces as a carseat does in a crash. But even those are supposed to be replaced after a severe crash. But to each is own. If you feel expiration dates and crashes aren't something to be concerned with that's your decision. Everyone does what they think is best for their family. We don't all agree but I can tell you what I've experienced first hand. As well as what I've learned over the years from experts in the industry. I hope what I'm posting will help give others something to think about when looking for carseats.

I think after crashes they should be discarded. What I was saying is that the experation date ensures that they get disposed of. Because the longer the car seat is in use the more likely it will have been in an accident.

Just the plastic and construction of the seat breaking down in 6 -12 years being in existence was proven to be not the case (will find the studies , there are 2 universities and scientific journal that had this). They may not preform as well because standards have changed but do not perform worse because of it breaking down.

All I was saying that the experation on seats ensures that the latest safety standards are followed and any "un acknowledged accidents and hidden damage" are likely to be caught by seats that have expired.

I understand what your saying and where your coming from but if the carseats are coming from the store or manufacturer then accidents shouldn't be an issue. And I wouldn't associate expiration dates with possibility of the car seats being in an accident. We've only had our carseats for just over a year before our accident and it had a 12 year shelf life. Personally I would never use a carseat from someone else. Especially when they aren't giving it away for free. Too many people lie just to make a buck. And when it comes to my kids safety I would rather spend the money to buy a carseat that's brand new then to buy a used one. But even then you have be careful. I bought a carseat from buybuybaby and it was mailed to me and it was used. It had scratches on the bottom and none of the tags were attached and it had a small spot on the fabric. So even brand new from some companies you have to be careful.

This is also my understanding of the expiration dates. Of course where you can avoid an older car seat you should, but that doesn't mean a car seat bought new from 2015 isn't effective.

True. I am a new car seat only person. I had one hat was new that wasn't from BBB and one that UPS customized and wanted a new one.


I was just saying If Someone owned the seat from new and it expired and I knew it wasn't in an accident it would very likely be safe if hey needed it for an "ooopsy" or a late addition.

And I think that's where to each is own comes into play. I can see if they needed it for an emergency then chances are high that everything would be ok but I think that should be it. It shouldn't be used for everyday use.
After having so many different types of carseats if I had to do it again I would buy one for each stage. An infant carrier, then a convertible with extended rear facing, and then a forward facing only over an all in one like a Diono Rainier or Graco 4ever or all in one.
