A brand new Baby car seats can be quite expensive for a simple model one, and not everyone can afford one especially if you have a house mortgage and many other expenses to pay for each month. Luckily for me, I got a free baby car seat from a relative of mine. They are done with the baby car seat since their child has overgrown their age for the need to sit in baby car seat, and that car seat hadn't been of any use for them. They don't intend to give birth to another baby child in the future, they already have 3 children.

One question that came to my mind was if it is safe to use a baby car seat when it is expired. I mean the baby car seat looks absolutely new and safe with no damage or malfunction in its functionality. My relative had hardly used it much because they were a couple who didn't like going out much with their children, and they had bought this particular baby car seat pretty recent. I have heard many people still using expired baby car seat with no problem until something happen, and then they are caught by cops. Is it worth the risk of using expired baby car seat?
