Car seats, including the UPPAbaby Mesa Series, come with an expiration date. The expiration date is a safety measure, as car seat materials and technology can degrade over time. The UPPAbaby Mesa Series car seat will expire 7 years from the date of manufacture as long as it is not involved in an accident. Discontinue use if the car seat and/or base is involved in an accident. The expiration label is located at the bottom of both the carrier and the base.
It's crucial to adhere to these expiration guidelines to ensure the ongoing safety and effectiveness of the car seat.
