I was looking at used peg perego carseats on ebay and they are a good deal considering how expensive they are to buy new. Just wondering if anyone has ever bought one off of Ebay???

I would agree. I did but a used one, but I knew the person I bought it from and knew that she would be truthful about its history. Also, I was able to see it, so I could check the expiration date and see its condition. I wouldn't buy one from anyone you personally do not know.

Never buy a used carseat. You can never be for sure if its been in an accident. And once its been in even a fender bender it should be thrown away. And while we expect people to tell the truth on ebay you may not get that and you dont want to put your new baby in a possibly compromised carseat. If your looking for a deal I suggest foregoing the peg perego and get something brand new and safe. Or put it on your baby registry and maybe a few people will get together and get it.

I would be careful because car seats do expire and you don't know if its been in an accident. Even if they say it hasn't you still don't know. I haven't bought on off ebay but i think the only way i would is if it was still in the box and had the tags still attached to it. just be careful.
