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.
No, they are not different. It does have a longer expiration date than most (8 years), but it still has plastic and other parts that degrade with time.
Regardless of seat or brand, never buy a used seat from a stranger, only ever with someone you could trust your child's life with!
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.
