i peronally would replace it though maybe someone will chiime in about the laws-


with tht much damage to a car to me it would be worth it just to file w/insurance to get a new seat

Re: Car seat use after a truck ran into us question

Yes you need to replace the seat. His insurance should pay for a new seat, if he doesn't want to go through insurance then make sure he pays you cash for the full price of your seat inc taxes.
Just for the record there is no "safest" seat, they all pass the same tests and standards. There are seats that go past the minimums in weight limits and have extra features. But the safest seat is one that fits your child and your vehicle and you can use correctly 100% of the time.
The Nautilus goes on sale at Zellers and occasionally Toys R US pretty often. Zellers had them on a week or 2 ago for $180 I believe.
Anyway hope it all works out for you.

Re: Car seat use after a truck ran into us question

Thank you! my hub keeps going on and on about that the truck didn't hit hard enough to wreck a seat me i rather be realy realy dang sure case are daughter cant be replaced or glued back together kwim,royally ticken me off lol so if he whount say anything to insurance guys im just going to save up buy the dang thing and let him moan and whine I have a 20 off 200 code so with taxes i believe it was 227 instead of 247ish?

i did print off a sheet with price of are old one out so he can show them and thell know value if hell ask them,my next step is to call mpi on Monday and see what they say if they agree with me have them send something or call my hubby
i sound like such a wacko mom don't i? itryed 3 years for her and i don't wanna lose her

the seat has been on a plane twice as well so may just be wise to upgrade it anyhow ive seen how they handle stuff on planes-yikes! that and i hate are seat allot!

I have always heard that if a car is hit, the seat can sustain damage that you can't see and if it is ever in a wreck, it may not be safe. I would without question replace the car seat. SS mama!

Insurance covers it, and it needs replacing! End of story. You are not being paranoid. Tell your hubby that in any accident it needs to be replaced. We were in a fender bender last week, VERY low speed (we were rear ended at an intersection...) only damage to our vehicle is to our bumper, and we`re replacing ours (through insurance of course)

Replace the seats. All car seats say any accident. The other persons insurance should cover the seats.
