CYBEX Car Seat Lifespan Information

CYBEX car seats are designed to provide your child with unlimited safety for at least the entire period of use specified for that particular age group, our products for babies and toddlers can even be used for a sibling.

More specifically, this means:
  • Group 0 seats can be used for infants up to 18 months of age. This corresponds to a usage period of 1.5 years. The seat can also be used for a second child. Please note, however, that the maximum permissible period of use is 7 years from its first installation in a car.
  • Group 0/1 seats can be used from birth up to 4 years of age. This corresponds to a usage period of 4 years. Since the seat can be passed onto a second child, e.g. a younger sibling, the maximum permissible period of use is 8 years from its first installation in a car.
  • Group 1 seats can be used from 9 months up to around 4 years of age. This corresponds to a usage period of more than 3 years. Since the seat can be passed onto a second child, e.g. a younger sibling, the maximum permissible period of use is 7 years from its first installation in a car.
  • Group 1/2/3 seats can be used from 9 months up to 12 years of age. This corresponds to a usage period of 11 years. Group 1/2/3 seats should NOT be used a second time, e.g. for a younger sibling.
  • Group 2/3 seats: Group 2/3 seats can be used from 3 years up to 12 years of age. This corresponds to a usage period of 9 years. Group 2/3 seats should NOT be used a second time, e.g. for a younger sibling.
The time periods specified above relate to the period after purchase and to the maximum permissible usage period. As soon as the seat is installed in the car, it is exposed to high temperatures and high levels of light intensity. As a result, even high-quality and extremely age-resistant plastics such as those used by CYBEX can display certain age-related alterations. To ensure the safety of your child, we strongly recommend that the seats are not used for longer that the prescribed usage periods.

Since very high temperature fluctuations and other unforeseeable stresses are common in vehicles, it is necessary to observe the following points:
  • If the vehicle is directly exposed to strong sunlight for long periods, the child seat must be removed from the vehicle or covered with a light cloth.
  • Check all plastic and metal parts of the seat regularly for damage or change of shape or colour. If you notice any change in the child seat, the child car seat must be disposed or checked and possibly replaced by the manufacturer.
  • Changes to the fabric, especially fading, are normal when used in a vehicle and do not impair the seat's function.

Love Isoki products

Great quality bag. Love the color. The material is nice . Easy to clean. Quite big but great size because it fits everything I need for my Toddler for playcentre or when going on day trip. Can fit a few changes of clothing, jacket nappies wipes lunch box. A drink bottle for both of us. wallet keys etc. Just perfect. Comfortable to wear on your back or hangs on stroller with the stroller straps easily even on my smaller stroller. Love Isoki I've bought a couple of there nappie bags already. Very happy with it. Great price and service fast shipping. Bag was as described. Very happy.

Great stroller

I love this stroller. The handle extends out nice and high, so no stooped backs when walking along (both myself and my partner are tall and struggle with other brands that are much lower). Sturdy construction. Good wheels for going on rough grass etc. Big storage basket. Good sized canopy for protecting against the NZ sun. It is quite heavy, but then it was never going to be a 'travel' stroller so that's ok. Really pleased with it overall.

Does the job

Reasonably sturdy and a good standard size for cups etc. Annoying how you have to remove it every time you want to collapse the stroller down. Sticks out sideways a lot too. I like it but don't think it wiill get used as much as I thought it would.
