We have a new Snugride with new bases in our cars. A trusted friend gave us a used base, manufactured in November 2001. We are considering putting this in my MIL's car. She will be watching DD 3 days per week.

Would you buy a replacement base, or use the older one?

Yes, they do.

I know my Evenflo Infant seat had the expiration date stamped on the seat as well as the base.

The base is exposed to the same things as a seat is that would cause it to break down.

Buy a replacement. I think the bases expire with the seats.
