How far back is too far for a car seat? I found one made 04/10/2006-its a Britax Roundabout so I know its a great carseat. Its never been in accident either and in great condition. Is that an ok date to still buy??

Car seat expires 6 years after the manufacture date. So you should be ok for a couple of years.

Yup, Britax is 6 years. Thats what most car seats are.  A few go longer, like Sunshine Kids and Compass True Fit.
