The amazon reviews complain of a Manufacturing date of 2016. Looks like they were returned and are selling them in Warehouse deals.

I'm kind of surprised they can sell used/open box car seats. It's also tricky they list it as open box when many many things (if not most) warehouse deals are listed as used.

This item is being sold new. Regardless of the manufacturing date on that specific comment there is an expiry date that comes with every car seat as long as the cat seat is within that range and you have a couple of years you are good to go. The rating on the .ca site mean nothing since the exact same seat got 4.4/5 from 1400 reviews on the .com site from the same seller!

In conclusion, you need to order it And see the expiry date you get, if you get a few years (since they expire within 6 years) at the least this is a good deal!

guys the "expiry date" is only a recommendation it is not a law. it is set by each manufacturer as a life cycle of 6 to 10 years , also the way they calculate it is the date it is first used or if the date of first use is unknown the date on the sticker. in reality these things last a lot longer than that if used properly and never been involved in an accident so stop worrying about the dates.

I agree, but I'd want it to be a really good price to risk getting amazons old stock.

Max rear faced seating at 35lb is pretty low, isn't it?

I'd get the extend 2 fit from graco which always hovers around the $220 range instead. Rear faced seating is up to 50lbs

You are right the extend 2 fit seems like the better option. Going to cancel and order this model instead. Thanks!

Yes, the contender has a relatively low rear-facing weight limit. Whether it is a good choice depends on the growth curve of the child and how long the parent wants to rear-face their child.

The extend2fit is a great seat. However, it has child-weight based rules about the extender panel, which may require more back-to-front room than the Contender for a rear-facing child that weighs more than 22 lbs.
