u can use a used carseat but they expire! so i would take the used car seat to ur nearest sheriffs office or police department to be sure that the seat isnt expired! they r really helpfull and kind!
Definitely check and make sure it hasn't expired! The other problem w/ buying at a garage sale is that you don't want to use it if it has been in an accident - even if it "looks" ok. I would say used carseats from family/friends you trust are OK though.
