Car seats that have ever been involved in a car accident should be disposed of immediatly. Stress points can occur which are not visable, compromising the safety.
If you purchase a used one, do so from someone you know, and who was the only owner of the seat.
Cosco makes one that sells for around $65 at Target.com, which is likely a bit cheaper than that at Walmart, and if you can find it at Toys R Us, you can use tru or bru coupons, plus the gift card towards it, and get it for around $20 total.
Take your child with you, and Toys R Us lets you strap the child into them, and test how well they will work for each child, and your own needs.
