I remember a youtube video about this when I first started looking into car seat info. It was something like "Elmo is not safe!"

Ah here it is, posted Feb. of last year

It took them a year to admit to an issue that this guy discovered was generating a 75% failure rate? And their fix is a tube of lube? Welp, add another seat manufacturer to the lofty recall ideals set by Evenflo...

I haven't read all of that thread about the video I posted yet, but now I'm pretty freaked out. Some people were mentioning that this could happen with any Dorel seat since they all use the same adjusters. I JUST bought 2 CAs and now I will be really paranoid that they are going to break. Is there any chance of that, or is it a thing where it is *only* on certain Dorel models?

I would say it could be on other models. It's not like this isn't a problem that has been happening for years and years. The adjusters have always been sticky. I would just be in the habit of making sure the adjuster is locked as a matter of course. Of course I do this for every seat just because kids like to stick things in slots and I can't count the number of times I've found stuff stuck in there. (Usually Cheerios)
 
I recently bought an OnBoard 35 for my baby that is due next month. I saw this recall last night and lost all trust. I returned the seat (Even though it's not on the list) to the store and just ordered a Graco SnugRide 35. I feel MUCH better.

So I got the tube of lube too...

We have a Maxi Cosi Priori, Dorel never sent the labels to send it back though (so here it remains, and I'm too chicken to use it). The issue is that when you pull the strap to tighten the harness, the metal part moves (as it should) but remains in that position and doesn't come back into the "locked" position.
