Talking Buying a 2006 closeout car seat?

So I've decided to get a Britax and I found a Roundabout 2006 model, brand new at a authorized store online for $180, but whats your take on buying a older model? Don't car seats expire in a certain number of years, so the discount might not be worth it?????

I believe the expiration date is usually 6-7 years, correct me if I'm wrong though. I've heard of people getting the 2006 closeouts without a prob

Re: Buying a 2006 closeout car seat?

Britax seats expire 6 years from the manufacture date. I would consider exactly how much life it has left (is it from early 06, or later in the year), what is the age and size of the child you are buying it for, and do you want a seat that can be handed down. Most kids will outgrow the roundabout around 3 years old, and that's really not old enough for a booster, so you will still end up needing another 5 point harness seat, so also take that into consideration.

I bought a 2006 closeout roundabout from Albee Baby and the manfacture date was 11/06 so it was almost a 2007! I think think it is a good deal I paid $169

Re: Buying a 2006 closeout car seat?

Britax expire in 6 years. If it was manufactured in the end of 2006 I would get it, but not if it were from the begining of last year.

eta~ is there any way that you could get a Marathon instead? You would really get your money out of it since it goes up to 65 pounds compared to the Roundabout only going to 40.

For $50 more you could get this Marathon and save money in the long run because you wouldn't have to buy another seat in a few years.
