    Release Date vs Date of Manufacture

    I found a Regent on Amazon that I am considering but it says Oct 15, 2007. When I looked up the ID# it said it was the release date- does that mean that it is also the DOM of the seat I want to buy?

    Re: Release Date vs Date of Manufacture

    Amazon's "release date" is likely the date the item was first available for sale at Amazon. That's how Amazon lists release dates for books and DVDs, for example. It's not the Regent's date of manufacture.
