Re: Do carseats "expire"??

Yes car seats expire. Safety standards change and plastic degrades over time. Most seats on the market are good for 6 years from the date of manufacture. Peg Perego infant seats are only good for 5 years. There are some seats that are good for 7 or 8 years but it depends on the seat. The information on expiration will be found in your manual. What seat are you thinking about reusing?
