Quick question: is it ok to buy a Sunshine Radian seat used because the steel frame isn't impacted after an accident? I thought I read this somewhere (that they don't expire either?) But thought I should check here.
Someone locally is selling two for $50 each and I normally wouldn't buy a used seat but thought I should check to see if these are any different. Thanks in advance!
I would not buy any car seat used. I've never heard that the Radian doesn't need to be replaced after an accident. I doubt that's true. The straps can still get stretched out, and there is plastic on the seat, which can fail. Also, Radian car seats do expire.
Just confirming, no, that is absolutely NOT true. The Radian must be replaced after a crash, like any other seat, has an expiration date, different depending on which model you have, and should never be used if it's from an unknown source.
