We were in a low impact accident that caused no damage to our car (little hatch back hit our tow ball) when dd was about 3 so the carseat wad replaced. Earlier this year we were in another accident, seat replaced again. Both times insurance replaced them.

I agree....replace. On a side note does comprehensive car insurance automatically cover a car seat? Or would i need to speak with my insurer? Im with Cgu....never thought of this till now

As mentioned SafeNSound have an exchange program if you've been in a car accident. They will provide you with another car seat free of charge. There are conditions - see their Britax website for more info. The new SnS Meridian is more than $400 so you might end up being better off going through SnS if you meet the criteria.

Ok so I just looked at the britax website and the crash has to be 'severe - enough to distort the frame of the car' .... I'm having the car assessed on Tuesday so I won't know till then. Such a big stuff around! Silly woman not looking where she was going!!! Grrrr

I would definitely get a new seat. It's better to be safe than sorry and if you are involved in another accident and something was wrong with the seat... You wouldn't want to be the reason why your child wasn't in a seat that was in perfect condition (not saying its not perfectly fine)
