It says you can use it 10 years but I thought car seats were only good for 6? Is this brand different for some reason?

Different car seats have different expiration dates. I just bought Britax Frontier 85's, and they expire 9 years from the Date of Manufacture.

Hmm..I dunno. I am not too crazy about the new seat covers. And I'd have to know how it fits children as a booster before giving a real opinion.

Potentially to try it out as a booster all you would have to do is stick a current one in the car forward facing and use the seatbelt, no?

Re: So who has heard about this and what do you think?

After how I was treated when I had issues with my SuperLatch, I'm never buying another one of their products. They changed their name because if you search at the NHTSA, their seats come up with about 80 reports of people who had major issues with them, and there are Facebook pages warning people not to buy their products.

I think it is shady to change their name, but not redesign the belt that is incompatible with many cars. Sadly, you don't know it is incompatible til you go out one day and find your carseat completely loose, and at that point, you can't return it and Sunshine Kids will just tell you that you are installing it wrong, even if you are a CPST.

AFAIK, only the backless booster part of the nauti is the part that is good for 9 years - the rest of it is 6 (December of 6th year)

Yeah that.

There is one other seat that is good for 10 years, the Graco SmartSeat.
