Summary: I waited over six months to write this review so that I could provide an accurate account of my experience. The pros of this stroller are that the harness seems sturdy and it is lightweight.
However, I am disappointed in this stroller and feel it is drastically overpriced. The stroller does not steer at ALL if you are going forward. It steers ok going backwards. You will not be able to get through manually operated doors without help unless you go backwards.
Excerpt: I had my mclaren about 3 years ago, I chose it as it was a trusted brand. At first I thought it was fab, folded up neatly, Dc seemed happy enough in it and it seemed sturdy. However one day I tripped and my weight caused the pushchair to tip over, I landed on it and Dc cut his lip badly. The next time I came to use the pushchair I noticed the frame had bent quite badly. I ended up buying a 3 wheeler, Dc had more space, it was a dream to push compared to the mclaren.
Excerpt: Got this to keep in the car & only used a couple of times a week. It doesn't fold down well with footmuff on, flimsy, useless one handed, my little one slides down in it & looks very uncomfortable, brake a pain to put on, useless on gravel paths or cobbles, can't get much in basket & get nothing in when reclined. I wish I hadn't bought it.
Excerpt: We chose a Maclaren partly because it is a well established brand and we sort of expected it to be simple and durable. We were so wrong! Bad points: - the breaks never worked - the clip to fasten the push chair closed never worked - the rain cover broke (all along two seams) the first time we used it - the foam on the handles wore away really quickly - the push chair veered to one side - a bolt on the frame snapped, so it no longer worked at all - difficult to recline,...

Excerpt: overall very comfy buggy but was greatly dissapointed in leg support which broke on 1 side and the back wheels have buckled despite been 12m old hardly used (as have silver cross pram) and been registered for soverign warranty which doesent cover my problems
Summary: buggy an sich selbst ist sehr bequem und leicht, der Käufer hat auch geschrieben, dass Dach von der Sonne abgewaschen ist, der hat aber nicht geschrieben, dass Dach auch noch krumm ist und verbogen, sieht natürlich sehr schlecht aus und lässt sich leider nicht reparieren, mein Vater hat schon versucht. Ich habe mich für dieses Produkt entschieden, weil ich diesen von meinen Freunden kenne und schon immer für mein halb jährigen Sohn das kaufen wollte.
