Reviews and Problems with Graco Quattro Tour Travel System
Showing 1-10 of 15
Okay... but not super convenient
29 July 2013
Summary: I purchased this stroller because it seems to have any and everything you could want in a stroller - until I actually started using it. First downside was that I could not fit the diaper bag into the basket underneath as the opening between the bottom of the seat and the bin is MAYBE 4" TOPS.... it's really INCONVENIENT! If that tray at the bottom was more spacious I would have given this 4 stars.
Summary: Initally, we loved this product. But, by 9 months, we needed to replace the wheels, and the foam padding on the stroller handlebar began ripping. I would say, we had a moderate use on the stroller. We didn't use it much at all for the first four months due to the intense heat during the TX summers. We even kept it in a climate controlled area inside our house. Around five months, I would take it out for a half mile walk about ever other day.
Summary: I bought it because I loved the carseat and the quality it was made with. We go it home and my husband put it together while I was at work. I was quite dissapionted when i picked it up (im currently 26 weeks pregnant) and couldn't believe how much heavier it was than my Chicco stroller. When I put the car seat in the stroller it stuck out so far it felt like I was pushing a school bus it was so long. I wish I could keep the carseat, but the stroller stinks.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Safe, Stylish
Cons: Bulky, Difficult Basket Access, Difficult to Use, Heavy
Summary: 1st time mom with a preemie baby! I looked through reviews on stroller/car seat travel systems while in the NICU in order to have something to put on our baby registry. This was a terrible idea. The stroller is VERY large and bulky. It does not fit in a car trunk, luckily we have a truck bed as well. The reverse seating is not even necessary. Because of this seating, the basket underneath is barely accessible since that seat does not move.
Summary: The pattern on the stroller is very adorable. The stroller is very easy to handle in busy places and easy to stroll. The big problem I have with this stroller is that it is very bulky and very hard to open and close with a baby in your arms.
Summary: I traded in a Baby Trend travel system because the car seat base didn't fit properly in my car, and ended up with a stroller that, when folded, didn't fit in my car. I drive a Tahoe and the only way I could get it to fit was if my third row was folded down. Then I tried getting it in my moms car, she drives an Impala, and we had to put it in the backseat. Needless to say I traded it in.
Summary: I'm a first time mom and we purchased this travel system thinking it would making outings easier. The stroller is easy to manuver which I love, however, it is very bulky when folded and I struggle with getting it into the trunk of my car. Also the basket under the seat is difficult to put things in because the opening in narrow. The car seat poses larger issues for me.
Summary: I purchased this travel system but didn't really test it out much in the store or read the reviews beforehand. The major con is that the basket is WAY too small and doesn't lower for access. I don't really think I would use the reverse feature in the stroller - too much work. I ended up returning it and getting the orginal Quattro Tour in Carlisle - so much better! The basket is bigger and drops down, and it seems lighter. Also, the colors were nicer.
Cons: Difficult Basket Access, Difficult to Use, Heavy
Summary: We chose this travel system for ease of use and because we loved the pattern. We realized that the stroller was very large, even when collapsed, but that's not an issue for us since I drive a large SUV. It is frustrating for me to put the stroller in the car, though, because the rear wheels automatically lock when the stroller is collapsed. We bought the stroller frame for the infant seat and that made quick trips much easier.
