Summary: On the carseat, the handle ALWAYS is very difficult to put down. Everyone of my family members AND daycare had issues with it. You have to press both buttons pretty hard and sometimes a few times. I agree with EVERYONE about the front wheel. But it didnt happen right away. I used this carseat for about 6 to 8months before it started happening. My daughter is 2 now and she doesnt really care but next baby will have a new stroller!

Summary: This product is FANTASTIC!!! I am 32, 38 weeks pregnant with my second child and put this thing together in 20 minutes. Everything was packaged well and arrived undamaged. I have another child and had a Graco with her...I cannot believe the difference in quality. I mean my mouth hit the floor as I was putting this thing together.
Summary: I really have enjoyed this travel system. The car seat alone is great from a safety standard but as an active mom, I was anxious to get back walking after having my baby. It's great on long walks and it's made very well. It is a bit heavy but all joggers are. Just wait until you need a double. I also didn't use this as a mall or errands stroller when the baby was still in car seat because my model didn't have a front wheel that swiveled.
Summary: We so looked forward to using our jogging stroller, and when it came in the mail, I assembled it per the instructions. When we used it, the front wheel shook so badly. This was frustrating because I wanted the pivotal wheel to be able to use this stroller while walking, shopping, AND have the option to lock it for jogging. At first I thought maybe our baby just didn't weigh enough to keep the front down, but over time I found that wasn't the case.
Summary: We've used this stroller & carseat for 4 months now. I'll never buy 'Baby Trend' brand again. Stroller: Cons: Heavy; cumbersome to fold/unfold (takes both hands & a foot); bulky when folded; latch that keeps it folded is flimsy & designed improperly (the stroller can fold much tighter than the latch will allow); tires don't hold air; canopy doesn't pivot fully forward (a problem when the sun is in baby's eyes); and saving the worst for last - the swivel front wheel...
Summary: I love the stroller and the fact that it doesn't get stuck over every little bump. It takes some getting use to maneuvering though. The carrier part is good but does not protect baby's head very well. You need to get your own head protection to keep baby's head from flopping all over the place. Not crazy about the buckling system because it's more complicated than it should be. But easy handle to carry in and out and back and forth.
DO NOT buy from Baby Trend! Worst Customer Service EVER!!!

Summary: We thought we could get a great product at an affordable rate and bypassed the higher-end lines and we decided on the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger/Infant seat travel system. At first pass it worked fine and we were pleased overall. Several weeks into owning the stroller we noticed that the front wheel became excessively shaky when not in the locked position. It was very difficult to maneuver with the wheel locked all the time, as we use the stroller for every day use.
Summary: I have been very happy with our infant travel system from Baby Trend. I love the swivel wheel in the front for more manuverability and security and the durable wheels make our daily jaunts on the bike trail a snap. It is true the system does not allow the car seat to lay back as well for newborns as I would like, but I figured a way around that. I shift the car seat more forward so it does not come below the red safety tabs and it lays back better.
Summary: This set sounds ideal, but has several major shortcomings. The way the infant carrier fits into the stroller, it sits VERY UPRIGHT, and does NOT recline enough for an infant. This alone defeats the main purpose of the set - to be able to use a jogger stroller with an infant and not wait 6 months. Additionally, the stroller body itself (where the child sits) is not near as nice as the regular Baby Trend Expedition LX (without travel system).
