    Recaro Expiration???

    Okay so I know that the boosters don't expire, right??

    What about the harnessed seats? Convertibles? Do they never expire as well??? I'm curious about this, it's been bugging me.

    Thanks.

    Re: Recaro Expiration???

    It's only the Start that doesn't expire...it's all aluminum and upholstery grade fabric and stuffing, so nothing to break down, I guess.

    Not sure about the others...probably all 6 years (plastic of the Young Sport and Young Style.....)... who knows about the new ones...hopefully 7, if they say they go to 59/60 inches tall!!!!

    good question. i just searched my electronic RYS manual for this, and nowhere in the manual does it mention an expiration date.

    but in my search, i discovered that recaro's warranty is two years!! w00t!!


    ETA: strange, in one part of the manual it states 1 year warranty, and in another place, it states 2 year guarantee...

    Recaro North America, Inc. warrants this product against defects in
    materials or workmanship to the original purchaser for a period of 12 months.
    You must have the original purchase receipt for a warranty claim to be
    accepted.
    The Recaro Child seat you have purchased is a high quality product. Its
    different settings and its stable and ergonomic Design ensures that the
    Recaro child seat is a safe and comfortable place for your child to sit when
    traveling in your car. However, before you use it, you need to set it to your
    child’s size and then install it carefully, so that the seat is properly adapted
    to your child and will perform as required. These instructions will help you do
    this, so please read them carefully. The child seat is covered by a two year
    guarantee

    Re: Recaro Expiration???

    Okay so THAT's why it doesn't expire. I thought it might have something to do with that.

    Okay.... hmmm I'm going to have to talk to family about how we would be traveling to see them. I may end up having to sell the Regents and go for Recaros if we are going to be flying.
