Car seats

Maxi cosi cabriofix safe for how long?

I have been given a car seat from a very reliable source so know it hasn't been in an accident or dropped BUT it has been used by two children over the last four years. I can't see an expiry date on the seat so hard to know how long the seat is safe for. Does anyone have any guidance on this? We think it's 5 years but not certain.

I have heard 5 years too, but no idea if that is based on any real fact or just something the manufacturers say to cover themselves.

Yes it's five years from the date of manufacturing. So I expect it outside of the recommended date.

Here's a list of car seat expiry dates

Sorry I cannot do clicky links on my iPad.

It says that the maxi cosi European models have a five year expiry.
