Summary: I loved this travel system for the first year, then the front wheels of the stroller went crazy. You have a hard time pushing it because the wheels want to swivel to the sideways position and not go back into the straight position. You have to constantly backup to move forward. It's a real pain. Now I see that I can buy new front wheels for $40. I'm not sure if its worth it. Debating...
Summary: This was my third Graco stroller. The first was passed along in mint condition after nearly 2 years of use. My second became soiled when a skylight leaked on it while it was stored for the winter (after seeing heavy use with 2 children in 4 years). The Spree...is not the quality I have come to expect from Graco. It feels flimsy and is hard to steer at anything faster than a Sunday stroll. Now the fold mechanism has failed.
Summary: I fell in love with this pattern and had to have it, but it wasn't a great buy car seat wise. Instead of having 3 holes for the shoulder straps as your baby grows you can move them up this one only has 2 and our daughter is only 2 months old and has been in the 2nd hole since birth.THen I hate the fact that you have to tighten and loosen the straps in the back insted of the front.
Summary: I was super excited to receive this car seat as my baby came 1 month before expected. However, when I took the car seat to a safey inspector, they pointed out the fact that the seat was manufactured in 2007 (4 yrs ago). Since car seats are only to be used for 6 yrs after Manufacturing date, I would've had to replace this one in 2 years. Being an older seat, it didnt have the automatic latch that tightens once you put the infant in.
