Just got done with the insurance adjuster from the at-fault driver's company. He said just go buy a new seat, must be exactly the same seat, and fax the receipt and they would cut me a check. I didn't even ask! He looked in the car, and asked if there was a child in the seat at the time of the accident, and I said yes, and then he said well, you'll need to buy a new one. It seems so silly to me to be throwing away this 10-month old Nautilus after such a minor, MINOR accident, but he didn't even give me a choice, he just said go get your new seat and destroy and discard this one. I will definitely feel better with a new seat, because I'd always wonder if the seat was compromised in any way. Glad I don't have to worry about it now. Thanks for the advice ladies!
