    Graco Snug Ride Expiration

    Is the expiration on a graco snug ride 6 years? I have one that was manufactured in 04/2003. Is it still safe to use? I'm having a new baby in November, but I need to purchase a new seat for my 2 year old soon. If this one is still good, then I can wait and save money for a good convertible for the new baby. TIA!

    Right, six years. So you have until April 2009 with it. Is it a five point harness? If it's a three point I'd probably replace this one pretty soon too.

    It's a five point harness. I want to get the Graco Nautilus for my 2 year old, and after Christmas I'd like to pick up the True Fit for the new baby. Hopefully after that, I won't need anymore car seats for a while, lol.

    He's 35lbs. He's currently in an Alpha Omega 3 in 1. I know in that he can't use the harnesses after 40lbs, but he needs to be in them longer. I have a Britax Regent that I have my four year old in currently. He's 45in and 51lbs, so that was perfect for him.

    I also had a Snugride manufactured in 2003. I never noticed it until last week when I loaned it to someone, but on the back of the seat way toward the bottom (behind where the baby's feet would be) it is stamped with a statement about discontinuing use and discarding in after December 2009.

    I purchased it in June 2003, so it must have been manufactured in April or May 2003, but they must give until December of the 6th year.
