Ok that makes sense, if it is very distinctive and you see him regularly. From my understanding, expiration dates are made up by the manufacturers and aren't regulated by any actual safety authority. I really think you should mind your own business. The seat may still be perfectly safe.
Plastic can become very brittle over time and then can break easily. Especially if it's been enduring extreme heat or cold the way a carseat can. Car seats expire for a very good reason.
Indeed. I had rock climbing gear that I'd barely ever used and that had been in storage, safely tucked away from light and extremes in temperature/humidity. I still chopped it up and discarded it after a certain amount of time because materials degrade even when not in use and there are best practices to be followed for a reason. No way would I trust my life to equipment I wasn't very, very sure about.
