snugride expiring?


New member
I have a Graco Snugride 22, manufactured 3/12/2008.

The car seat data thread and I believe my owner's manual state:
Expiration Limit: Dec. of 6th year from mfg. Date

Does that mean it expires Dec. 2014? And would sitting in a garage for the last 2 years speed up the expiration considerably?

It's expiring December 31, 2014 (it'll say that stamped on the seat at the child's feet next to the locking clip) whether you use it daily until then or it's stored in a garage until then. January 1, 2015 you need to have a new seat in place if you're going to have a baby in the house.
