Re: Carseat Expiration question

If 2 yrs of use is worth $130 to you, sure. Is it a Marathon, I would rather get on the $209 plus free shipping deal that is going on right now and have 6 yrs use out of it.

Noway, not a 2004. I had a 2004 and I gave it away. Depending on the DOM it will have a year or so left on it! For a bit more you can get a 2008 Britax!

Re: Carseat Expiration question

I agree it is totaly not worth $130. Besides the fact that I don't trust craigslists carseats wheater they say its new in box or not. I would be questioning why they bought a seat and then never used it. If you really want a Marathon I would get a new while they are on sale and then you know your are safe. And you would be getting the full 6 years out of it.

Re: Carseat Expiration question

I totally agree that is is not worth $130. I would also never buy a carseat from craigslist regardless of what the seller says about it's condition. If you really want a Marathon I would get a new one while they are on sale. That way you know there is nothing wrong with it and you will get the full 6 years out of it. HTH!

Re: Carseat Expiration question

I bought one of my regents used off craigslist, (and its an 06) but its one molded piece ... the MA isn't and those moving parts would concern me.
ask her where its been stored first! in my vegas heat I would use a seat not 1 day past the 6 year mark... if that long!
I would ask more and inspect the seat (for signs of use or damage) and then offer her like $80 since you wont get more then 2 more years of use..

using past the 6 year mark is risky.... there are no guarantees on how the plastic will perform past that.

but if your budget permits I would get new while they are on sale!
