Help identifying a car seat!-updated

What kind if evenflo is this? $100 for two of them. Good deal? I need to upgrade ds2 to a convertible carseat.

Eta: decided I could do the evenflo tribute from target online for about $5 more. They seem to be an okay seat?

Re: Help identifying a car seat!

It looks like an evenflo triumph but I'm not for sure.I've heard good things about them but personally I would never trust a stranger's seat to protect my child.You can get a new scenera for the same price and it passes the same safety standards.

Buying seats off Craigslist is a bad idea. You have no idea what they might have done to it. I'd rather pay $39 for a new Scenara at Walmart than any amount for a Craigslist seat.

Used seats are never a good deal unless you know and trust the person your buying from. A new cheap seat is safer than a used more expensive seat with an unknown history.

They say they washed the cover, which is fine, but they also said they sanitized the seat and I will just bet they washed the harness too which is a big no no!

Don't buy a used seat. And it's not "one of the best on the market."

The harness isn't threaded correctly either.
