If Your Car Seat is Recalled, Get it Fixed Right Away
If you don’t have another car seat or booster seat to use, keep using the recalled seat while you wait for the repair kit—if the recall notice says you can. Using a recalled car seat or booster seat is almost always safer than letting a child ride in just a seat belt. Many problems are minor, but some are serious. All problems should be fixed as soon as possible.
