Summary: I have 3 children and have always used Maclaren, the Techno XT was the best pushchair because it had a tall backrest and i have tall children. i ordered this pushchair for my 3rd child and was very disappointed to see the main change to this pushchair is knocking 10cm off the top of the backrest......as always the quality is 100% but it's no use to any parent with tall children....
Summary: We have had this pushchair for just over 2 years - since our son was a baby - and I cannot wait to be shot of it. I have no idea why this gets good reviews because it is simply appalling. It came with no instructions for how to operate it and it is not at all intuitive. The brakes stopped working within the first six months. The seat mechanism broke within a similar period of time so that it cannot be put up to its highest setting. The straps are a huge hastle to adjust.
Excerpt: Ordered this rain cover after we lost our rain cover from the under buggy basket. This rain cover does not fit the Maclaran Techno XT 2012 buggy - it is not wide enough to fit across the hood and fix in to the fasteners. There is no way to fix it to the buggy.
Excerpt: Within 14 months the brakes had broken. I returned the product to mothercare hoping for a repair as it was still under warranty. Maclaren said as it wasn't a manufacturing fault so I'd have to pay £60. Mothercare Head Office agreed with Maclaren and now the pram is unusable. I refused to pay Maclaren anymore money and have lost faith in their products. The brakes should not have broken within this time.
Summary: Buyer Beware: We bought this Techno XT and all was well. One of the main reasons we purchased it was price and the fact it had a Lifetime Sovereign Warranty. Normal exclusions applied (which I agreed were fair) 1. Had to be used by the owner from new [check] 2. For own children [check] 3. Didn't cover wear and tear on the fabric etc [fair enough] 4.
" First new buggy I have bought and one side has…"
29 December 2011
Excerpt: First new buggy I have bought and one side has completly snapped after less than a years newborn use - maclaren are not prepared to replace or repair very unhappy as feel there must have been a fault for it to break so soon.
Excerpt: Покупала трость для отпуска, мониторила инет, везде-только положительные отзывы, что при явных недостатках коляски кажется, по меньшей мере, странным. Вывод-раскрученный бренд, не более того. Жаль потраченных денег!
Pros: Маневренность, хорошая (для трости) амортизация.
Cons: Капюшон в разложенном состоянии (при расстегнутой молнии) не фиксируется, при езде съезжает обратно. Капюшон очень мнется, что придает коляске неаккуратный вид, колеса в сложенном положении пачкают капюшон-нужны чехлы. Сиденье мелкое, ребенок постоянно съезжает и висит на ремнях. Кармашки на спинке коляски 'для мелочей' маленькие, в разложенном виде все 'мелочи' оказываются на голове у ребенка. Внизу, под коляской, маленькая неглубокая сеточка куда практически ничего ...
