Don’t: Buy Car Seats

This means booster seats, too. While you can check for recalls, you don’t know a seat’s history. Even a little fender bender could have damaged it and keep it from protecting your child the way it was meant to. In general, they have a service life of about 6 years. After several summer heatwaves and winter freezes, they can break down in ways you can’t see.
